Thoughts

  • Sickness, it comes in spurts.  One year, we'll be well for an entire year.  Then, other times like this winter, we've been sick 3 times in the past few months.  
  • I love spring weather!  I'm airing out the house this afternoon with SEVERAL windows open!
  • I'm definitely an extrovert.  Sometimes I doubt this fact and swear I'm becoming an introvert.  But I'm about to lose my mind after a week of being home with 3 sick children.  I decided one more day for the kids to get back to normal with the coughing and then we're back to our normal activity schedule.  I need some people energy!  My children are ready for some different people, too. 
  • I'm a home body.  I love my children and spending time with them.  But cranky, coughing children are wearing on my nerves.  
  • I love making these and hanging them in my windows!
  • These flowers have definitely made my week.  I'm not a roses-kinda girl.  Daisies and carnations are more my style.



  • My baby, my last baby turns 5 this week.  That's hard for me to think about. 
  • Change, good change is coming our way in a week's time.  I'll post more about that another day.  
  • I'm ready for spring weather...wait, did I already say that? 
  • I'm very blessed, and I truly know it!  I'm sure I don't act like it all the time, but I do realize it.  I'm thankful for all the people, experiences, and "blessings" in my life.  It can be overwhelming when I stop and meditate on the fact. 
Some favorite verses that are on my mind right now:

When you pass through the waters,
    I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
    they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
    you will not be burned;
    the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the Lord your God,
    the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
Isaiah 43:2-3a

Every good and perfect gift is from above, 
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, 
who does not change like shifting shadows.
James 1:17
