May 2012 Closing...

Another month has come and gone.  It is a blessing to be surrounded by such a sweet family and the presence of the Lord.  I so relish the quiet moments of each morning.  Waking before dawn, I sip my hot tea and honey and browse my emails, facebook, pinterest, and twitter.  Soon the little ones will wake, and Daniel too.  The day begins slowly and then the rush follows.  Being a mom is pure joy, patience training, and different every day!  I will enjoy seeing how the summer unfolds.  This week our boys will turn 3 and 6 years old!  My how time flies.  The days are long but the years are fast some have said.  They are right!  Hope you see God's grace in some way today...hope I don't miss the glimmers either!

NWT Girl's Week/Weekend

Today I will fly back to Kansas City for a girl's weekend/week with my old neighborhood friends!  So excited to have this opportunity.  God blessed us with an amazing company of angels in Olathe, KS.  These women became my friends, and their children my children's friends.  Their spouses also became my husband's friends for wine club, dinners out, and poker in our garage.  I look forward to having another memorable trip with "the girls!"  So happy they included me even though we've moved to Florida.  Year one we traveled to Lake Geneva, WI to stay at "The Acorns" a family home of the Schiefelbeins.  Year two we traveled to Mexico to an all inclusive resort in Cancun.  This year we will drive to Table Rock, MO to stay in condos that the Knights have used before.  It will be fun by the water yet again!  Looking forward to Starbucks, shopping, wine, and the spirit of friendship!

May 2012

Things I'm grateful for today...

Early morning alone time to pray, ponder, and drink hot tea with honey while listening to the sounds of nature from our backyard,

My early riser Addison who will come out bearing his Grandma Susan's knit blankets any moment,

My husband who works so hard for our family day in and day out,

Our second son, Bryan, who will sleep in a bit and come out in his pee pee pack and tousled blonde hair sucking his thumb and seeking out a sweet breakfast treat,

Our daily commutes to Winter Park/Orlando from Longwood to have Addison attend his final days of kindergarten at Audubon Park Elementary...time flies...I remember going there myself in kindergarten-fifth grade, and now our oldest son is in grade school!

Meeting new neighbors,

Talking with old friends,

Watching TV late at night with my best friend...Daniel,

Shopping for new things for our new home yesterday and finding birthday presents along the way as well,

And finally Grace from God the Father Almighty who loves us unconditionally and strengthens us for our daily work!
