For Today -

Outside my window...dark.  This is a late post, after a very busy day. 

I am thinking...I should be in bed!  

I am thankful for...little blessings that show up here & there.  I received a beautiful Willow Tree Angel in the mail today, as a 'part two' to my birthday last weekend.   I also received another Boyd's bear figurine!

I am Mom. I thought about her so much yesterday.  I miss her! 

On my mind...the many families & states affected by the tornadoes.  My heart breaks for them. 

I am pondering these words...Emily telling me today - "All I ever have to do is think of you, & it makes me smile. And if I ever feel scared, I think of you, & then I feel better."  

From the learning rooms...if you turn something over to God's Hands, leave it there. 

From the kitchen...sparkling clean & waiting for us to gather there for breakfast in the morning. 

I am wearing...jeans & white top. 

I am creating...smiles. I got that answer from Emily. :)  She & Elliot say that I always make them happy, & make our home a happy home.   

I am bed to read very soon.  I love ending my day with a good book. 

I am reading...Sisterchicks Go Brit, as well as a few others.  And always my Bible. 

I am hoping...the bad weather that some of our country is experiencing, is over for a long while.    

I am hearing...a tv show that my husband is watching. 

Around the house...many little projects that I want to do. 

One of my favorite things...capturing memories with my camera.  I love the thought of being able to 'freeze time or a moment' to be forever enjoyed - just by a click of a camera.   

A few plans for the rest of the week...homeschooling, going through a couple of closets & organzing them, & that's about it!  But that's enough - I'm striving for a relaxing week with my family. 

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...we had Avery for the weekend, & one of her favorite games is 'hide & seek'.  This is how she sometimes counts. we know how she finds everyone.
