One of these days I will get caught up on all of my blog post! I still have Disney day 2-5 then other stuff here and there!! Excuse all my random post as they are going up here and there!
Last week I had to make some deliveries. We went to a friends house where she invited us to stay and play. She made gumbo(I actually liked it) and we played outside!
We had fun looking at her animals!
I have been trying so hard to have a little play time with Lola as a family! One night we played tractors, blocks and big trucks... No babies...
This past Sunday we went to Ryan's grandmas 80th birthday celebration. It was a nice event although Lola showed her "other" side. But we knew how important it was for us to be there so we had a few "come to Jesus" meetings with the two year old and got through it. It ended up being a great day!
This week I started off the week with a few projects in mind. On top of my crafts (that I am WAY behind on) my life as a mother and wife still continue. Somethings can no longer be put aside. The refrigerator was calling my name. It was nasty!!!
I found these pictures on my camera.
I have been struggling with being thankful. It is so hard to see your blessing when you are surrounded by people who value things more than the blessing of life. It is so easy to fall into the life that lacks thanksgiving. Lately materialism seems to surround me. It has and is a struggle of mine. I like things and enjoy having the best. However, God has reminded me lately that the "things" in life that some people think they need only last for so long and to be thankful for what I have. Those people who have to have the best and the newest cannot serve God as they are serving man. Wow, that is hard to swallow. As much as I have battled with some people around me that seem to have everything and more, has led me to the feet of Jesus begging for him to take control of my thoughts and fill them with thanks. He has done just that. I mean everyday something has come to my attention to what I have to be thankful for.
Lola is one of my blessings that I am very undeserving of and find myself taking advantage of being her mother. I have thought all week about how thankful I am for the second chance of life God gave her! I pray that she will grow up and glorify God and his kingdom and I will live each day in thanksgiving for the life God gave to me and the privilege of being her MOM!
And I can't leave this jewel out... Check out her style...socks with sandals!
Happy Friday and I am very thankful for my mothers birthday tomorrow!!! Yea for cake and another year of life!!
