24 Hours

The highlights of the past 24 hours of my life:
  • I met with the women of the Dare to Be Lean Challenge to celebrate their successes. Over the past 6 weeks, we've lost a total of over 72 pounds and almost 60 inches! We've embarked on some serious lifestyle changes!
  • I snuggled with my Abi Grace and watched her sleep peacefully in the middle of the night.
  • I rocked my baby Camryn, knowing that she won't be a "baby" much longer. I sniffed her baby smell, grateful for the miracle God gave us that we didn't even know we needed!
  • I heard that same baby tell a boy "tank ew" for a ball at the indoor play center -- aww!
  • I bought yummy healthy foods for my family, grateful that we have such abundance available and that our family can afford to buy groceries without thinking twice.
  • I finished The Shack -- a very deep and odd book that I highly recommend.
  • I thought to myself mid-morning, "I sure haven't accomplished anything very significant with my Mothers' Day Out morning so far," only to hear God say, "Really?! You spoke with the Creator of the entire Universe! That's not significant?"
  • I chuckled out loud when I pulled the cutest, tiniest little boy "undershares" out of the laundry basket while folding clothes.
  • I received an affirming note from my husband.
  • I have taken the first steps in a journey I believe God is calling our family on.
  • I have flat-ironed parts of my hair twice this morning, fighting my natural curl, after being out on this drizzly day.
It's been a good day!

I love bullet-blogging! Hey having a real good conversation with God is worth way more than a day full of stuff. . . Congratulations on weight loss! You look great! Although, I hardly even knew you were pregnant much less needing to lose weight, so you can relax!
Love, th

loved those! I love folding the little boy undies too. I laugh all the time. But I dont just pull his out of the laundry basket. He puts his in toy baskets, trash cans, under the bed, his sisters personal favorite.....in her pajama drawer! He just puts them wherever he can find a place, when I say "clean up time". too cute. I am curious to find out though about the "journey you believe God is calling your family on" Email me, or blog it.....pretty please?
