My mommy

My mom is back in the hospital. Her heart is still very weak. Please pray that her heart is open to the Lord's healing, both physical and spiritual. I'm encouraged that God has bigger purposes for this time than we know.
"For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harn you, plans to bring you a hope and future, then you will call upon me, you will seek me and find WHEN YOU SEEK ME WITH ALL YOUR HEART, I will be found by you"....

why I haven't been posting

(following in the simple idea of my flower friend)

-My mom has been in the hospital. She's out now and feeling much better, although all the healing she needs to walk through is going to take much time and rest.

-My son has been sick. Boo-urns, he's been a crab.

-I'm trying to keep up with all the things my daughter brings home from school. Last year I really took a back seat with things, like cramming in 30 books the night before and morning of her reading celebration, when she had to have a certain number of books to get a prize. Luckily for our poor vocal chords, she got the prize. I'm proud to say we have stayed on top of everything so far.

-My granny is in town. She's staying with my mom to help her out. We have yet to find out if this is a good thing or a bad thing, and my sis and I are keeping close tabs on her.

-My hubby and I have been second car shopping, and found one! We should have it in the beginning of October!

-I've been keeping up with all my housework and housewife duties.

-I've been mulling over things God is teaching me, about being quiet.

-I've been struggling with my eating and excersize schedule, and have been feeling discouraged.

and last but not least...the number one reason why I have not been posting...

-I'm lazy

Where's Waldo?

In the Messy Room?

(and I thought I had a bit more time before he was old enough to trash his room...)

5 days

It's started!

All ready!
My daughter and I got to go shopping for school supplies just the two of us, and she got to pick whatever she wanted (assuming it was on her list). She chose a Strawberry Shortcake theme. I looked back at the times I went school shopping when I was little, and since we had very little money, I was never able to get the nice book bag or brand name supplies. It was such a blessing to be able to bless my daughter, and not seeing the burden of not having enough money on her that I'm sure my parents hated seeing on me growing up.

My daughter sighed after this picture, so I reassured her I wouldn't take pictures forever. She sighed again and asked what grade she would be in by then.
