I just realized it's been awhile since I've posted and I should probably get something up on here. Our family was all on anti-biotics about 2 weeks ago (which never happens) and then followed up with a nasty cold. When taking the kids into the doctor he said "Wow, you guys go from never being sick to all of you coming in at once". Yep...that's what happens when you're at home 24/7, 365 days a year. Everyone shares. rofl! We're still recovering but doing much better than a couple weeks ago.
Ok enough of that...on to the fun! It's been so nice out lately! We've had weather in the 40's and 50's! It's feeling a lot like spring. I sure hope Mr. Groundhog was right in telling us that spring was on its way. I think everyone is ready for spring this year!
Sometimes it's easy to get down in the dumps about school issues, sick family members, disappointments, etc... but the thing I cling to and need to remember is that these moments are fleeting. They should not set my tone/mood for the day. What do I want my children to remember about me when I'm gone? I'd love for them to say that mom was fun, positive despite the outcome, encouraging, helpful, fun, etc... You get the idea. Most of all I want them to know that my strength came from God! My strength, hope, etc...all comes from the Lord. I've been working on a new schedule for myself which includes getting up and starting the day off in the word and in prayer instead of starting it off on the computer. Please pray for me in this. We all know how hard habits are to break. This one is well worth the break; I don't want it to be one of those things that I say I need and want and then don't stick with.
So yeah...there's the short version of our family this past couple weeks. Oh and Matt is not nearly as stressed as he used to be. That is God alone working! I feel like we have our family back which is a huge blessing! A big thanks to those who have been in prayer about this.
