FOR TODAY - Monday, January 12, 2009...

Outside my is dark & quiet, seeing as I am posting this at 10PM.

I am thinking...about all that I want to do tomorrow.

I am thankful for...being able to accomplish so much in our decluttering & organizing today. What a great feeling!

From the learning live in the moment & enjoy it to the fullest. I don't ever want to miss something as I live it, because I am busy thinking ahead to the next moment, or thinking about things I need/want to do.

From the kitchen...everything is clean, put away, & waiting for us to meet there for breakfast tomorrow.

I am sweat pants & a soft gray thermal top.

I am meal plans for the week.

I am bed very soon, after a long day of cleaning.

I am reading...My Bible, 10 Principles for Studying Your Bible, Adventurous Prayer, & The Purpose Driven Life.

I am hoping...that I can finish up the little bits of organizing & decluttering around the house tomorrow.

I am hearing...nothing but the sounds of my keyboard as I type this post. Everyone is in bed.

Around the house...I see the 'fingerprints' of life with Elliot & Emily tonight. Tiny pink shoes left by the table, a Princess tiara on the counter, the stuffed beanie animals that Elliot was enjoying before bed. I feel so blessed as I see these reminders of the little people that share my life.

One of my favorite things...telling knock-knock jokes with Elliot & Emily, & the resulting squeals of laughter coming from them.

A few plans for the rest of the week...finishing up the things I want to do around the house, getting my meal planning done, getting the next chapter of my Bible study done.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...the moon outside my window tonight -
