FOR TODAY May 20, 2014

Outside my window... the sun is shining, the grass is green and the birds are singing.  I believe it's finally spring.

I am thinking... of my sister-in-law who just celebrated a birthday.  When I married my husband, I also married into his family and have been blessed to enjoy each and every one of them.

I am thankful... for books and the ability to read them.  There is so much I can learn just by picking up a good book.

In the kitchen... a growing grocery list.  It includes food items for this holiday weekend.  Today is the day to shop and begin preparing food and snacks for this weekend.

I am wearing... a combination of blues and oranges and bare feet.  Hello warmer weather.

I am creating... a scavenger hunt.

I am going... to tackle the laundry today and spend time in the kitchen cooking, after I do some grocery shopping.

I am wondering... what to do for a summer getaway this year?

I am reading... When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor . . . and Yourself by Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert.

I am hoping... I am being a good role model for my kids.

I am looking forward to... a weekend with friends.

I am learning... about myself.  I took a personality test and am learning to live my strengths.

Around the house... the sweet sound of running feet and laughter.

A favorite quote for today... "If you want to be a loving person, you have to make love a verb." ~Pastor Mark

One of my favorite things... random acts of kindness.

A few plans for the rest of the week: grocery shopping, run a few errands, make a landscaping plan and pack for the weekend.

A peek into my day...
More than any of the other kids, he loves to climb trees.
