Psalm 28:7

I wish I had something really exciting to write about. I wish I had something to say that would blow your socks off and you'd be totally amazed but, I don't. Today has just been an average day at home. I like to stay home and just be with my kids on Monday's but, for awhile we kind of got off that schedule. I don't think we've actually stayed home all day for a few weeks so, it was needed. After all the flurry of activity, going nowhere and not having company was actually a bit depressing and I think that's ridiculous because staying home for a day should be a good thing! 

Judah and Paisley had a good day. I've taken to blocking Paisley into the living room to keep her safe while I do some things around the house. She wants to pull up on everything and it takes her just a moment to pull a chair over on herself or get into some sort of trouble. Such a sweet and busy girl she is! I don't mind her being busy, I just want her to stay safe!

Judah and I did some coloring while Paisley was napping and it was nice to spend some time with just him.
 For dinner, we had sweet and sour meat balls that I cooked in the crock pot. 
 Rosie spent a lot of time inside with us today. She was going from room to room sleeping wherever she could find a quiet spot. Both Judah and Paisley love to follow her around and she loves her sleep!
 MOPS starts back up tomorrow so, I went through my old notebook from last year this evening. I dumped all the old paper on the floor and let Paisley "help" me. She had the best time playing with all the papers. 
 It's funny how things are different with the second child, I don't think I was this relaxed with Judah and I'm sure we'll get even more relaxed as our family grows. 
Today I've struggled with a bad attitude and just feeling down in general. I was talking to my sister about it and she reminded me that Satan tries to take good things and good opportunities away from us before they happen. My negative attitude could keep me from things that God has planned for me and I can't let that happen. Here's a verse that I just stumbled upon. I love it!

Psalm 28:7
The Lord is my strength and my shield, my heart trusts in Him and He helps me. My heart leaps for joy and with my song, I praise Him.

  1. My kids are almost exactly the same ages as your's and, like you, I am so much more relaxed with my second one. :)

    So true about Satan trying to discourage us. Love the scripture verse!!

  2. thanks for this wonderful and encouraging page. the pictures speak of love and peace.
    Before reading this, I was talking with a friend about the importance of "guarding and appreciating" our quieter days and moments. They are precious times.

  3. Hi K-
    Here is a link to the recipe for the meat balls. It's a Pioneer Woman recipe. I just brown the meat balls and then stick them in the crockpot with everything else and let it cook on low for 5 or 6 hours. So good!
