Outside my window: Charlie is eating my flowers.
I am thankful: That things always work out for the good. I am thankful for the time and space to see the bigger picture and not worry.
I am wearing: Capri’s and a tshirt
I am creating: a summer reading chart for the kids.
I am going: to the library to find books for Anna & Abbey. Nick already has a few at home he can read.
I am reading: The Kindness Diaries by Leon Logothetis. A Year of Biblical Womanhood by Rachel Held Evans, and The Discipline of Grace by Jerry Bridges. I am also reading This is the Story of a Happy Marriage by Ann Patchett for book group.
I am hoping: To travel to see family. My grandmothers mostly, but everyone else as well. Maybe in July we can go north to visit.
I am learning: To bite my tongue more! Important when two of our children are teenagers and have so many emotions and moods swirling. I think it’s hard for me but I’m learning to listen more and speak less. I always want to interject, which I hate, but I’m finally learning what a blessing it is to keep quiet and listen more. I use my journal more for writing out my thoughts.
In my kitchen: I have a lot of fruit and Gatorade. Softball is winding down but we have possibly 4 games this week. Today is going to be in the mid 90’s so Gatorade is a must! Watermelons, berries, crisp apples and juicy grapes. Plus lots of Popsicles in the freezer.
