Wednesday, February 15


We didn't leave the house at all today!!  It was rainy and cold and so we cuddled up under a blanket while I read to the children (in homeschool) and just tried to stay warm and dry today.  I love days like today. 
 What a nice crisp and rainy winter day in February


Last night I had a dream that I was telling Savannah to do something and she just looked at me and said..."Wait, Mom, I am forty years old now.....I think that I need to leave"  All of a sudden, she looked older and she left.  I was so sad.  When I awoke in the morning, I was still so upset by my dream.  It seemed so real.  I walked out into the hallway as the kids were walking down the stairs after just waking up.  Nicholas and Savannah were carrying their favorite baby blankets....their "guggles" and their special soft  friends (Savannah's is a little stuffed beanie baby pig and Nick's is a brown stuffed dog)

I know that the time is flying by.....I was elated to see them still little and still ALL mine.  Thank you Lord for these little reminders of how fast the time is actually traveling.  I will cherish every second.

I just hugged them both and felt an overwhelming joy in my heart.
Here is the traditional "fake sleeping pic"
We had a fire going in the fireplace and never set foot outside the entire day.  I just loved it!!  We even ordered in Chinese food for dinner.  Our kids LOVE Asian food!  We all do....that night, we ordered Sesame Chicken, Shrimp Fried Rice, and Egg Drop Soup.  Wow it makes me hungry just blogging about it!!

Dear Father....
Thank you for today.....thank you for more time to love them and to form them guiding them towards You!  Thank you for letting me be the one to do all of that.  Thank you for motherhood and thank you for my life. I pray that I live it well
