FOR TODAY - Monday, January 19, 2009...

Outside my is night, so all is dark, quiet, & peaceful.

I am thinking...about the dessert that we didn't purchase tonight, & now I wish we had!

I am thankful for...having my computer up & running after being without it for a few days. It made me realize that this little 'box' is such a blessing, in that it connects me to so many that are gifts to my days.

From the learning rooms...I am learning that I need to make the most of every single moment that I am given with Elliot & Emily. Looking through pictures this past week, brought home to me how quickly they are growing up. I want to fill their memory banks with days filled to the brim with love & laughter.

From the kitchen...I hear the quiet hum of the dishwasher, which reminds me of the wonderful meal we had tonight as a family, & brings gratefulness to my heart for God's blessings.

I am wearing...pajamas.

I am creating...a dvd of our family for each of my brothers & sisters. They will cherish it, as it chronicles our growing up & our parents that are no longer with us. Memories are a bridge to our past. I'm thankful God gives us a way to revisit days & people.

I am work on my website after I post this.

I am Bible, & Stories from the Bible to Elliot & Emily.

I am hoping...that our nation will pray for our new President everyday. He needs our prayers whether we are happy or unhappy about him as our new leader.

I am hearing...the keys as I type.

Around the quiet after a day of hearing Elliot & Emily laugh, play, & enjoy being a little boy & girl. I see Emily's cooking utensils beside me - & smile when I think of how she was baking me a 'cake' before she went to bed. I miss them, & can't wait to wake up with them tomorrow.

One of my favorite things...turning on my computer & seeing mail from the wonderful friends that I've met via the computer.

A few plans for the rest of the week...take some things to Goodwill, celebrate my son's birthday, do a few digital scrapbook pages, & finish 2 lessons of my Bible study.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing - one of our pugs seems to think she is a baby. She 'loves' her pacifier...
