I am considering blogging again. In some ways I miss it, in others I know I can get sucked in too far and get nothing else done. I will have to work at finding that balance.

She is listening

me: Please go back outside with Smiles. She can't be outside alone.
Love: She is not alone! Jesus is with her!!
(goes to the screen door) Smiles, is Jesus with you?

It was a funny moment but also heartwarming. She has taken that lesson to heart! Jesus is always with her!
Singing God's praises for the truth that is written on her heart!

Love's First Kid Run

Love ran in her first kid run with Daddy this past weekend! She was so excited to run like Daddy. She and Daddy now have another set of matching t-shirts!! I have to wonder if this is the start of something they will share for life. As she grows up, will she follow in her Daddy's shoes and become a runner? Will I become a track or cross-country mom? I will gladly be her cheerleader!!

Truly Blessed

I had a moment over something very silly.

I have Dora BandAids in my medicine cabinet, because I have two little girls. It just struck me. I love being a mom.
I have waited most of my life to be living this reality. Truly amazing!
