Happy Thursday to all of my lovely readers!
1. My Brother and Beth are on their way to get their baby GIRL! in Nepal
After 4 years of waiting - and pretty much giving up HOPE- they are leaving on Friday night to pick her up. The have to stay for 3 weeks. Please join me in praying for their safety and that the visit goes smoothly. I am so excited to meet my new baby niece.
I am so thankful that Josh steps in with the kids when he sees me getting overwhelmed. I know that not all moms have this kind of support! I am very thankful for my amazing husband that does this parenting thing with me.
3. My Mom
She planted all of my flowers for me as my Mother's Day gift. She does this every year! It's such a wonderful day together - and I get to enjoy the gift all summer. I love you, Momma!
4. My day away yesterday
Josh's mom came over yesterday morning and allowed me to step away for a few hours! I ran some errands, did some reading, and met a friend for a coffee and conversation. Man, it's refreshing when I can step away from the daily grind and enjoy some time alone.
5. My new Jesus Calling Devotional/Journal
Wow! If you're looking for a great devotional, get this one! A few friends recommended it, and I finally purchased it. Love it! I can't imagine living my life without Jesus in it. It's such an amazing feeling to know that I have completely surrendered my life to Jesus and - no matter what - it's all taken care of. During some days - when I think I may lose my mind - He's the first person I cry out to. Immediately (well, almost immediately), I'm feeling better. He always takes care of me, my marriage, and my parenting.
