Hello, Friends! How was your weekend? Ours was somehow full but also relaxing, and I feel all filled up with social happiness – so blessed by all the awesome people God has brought into our life!!
I also feel full of things I’m learning right now – God’s teaching me a bunch of stuff, but I feel as though it’s still marinating, and it’s not time to write about it yet! So today, I’m going to share stuff other people have been writing. I have a Pinterest board called “Good Reads” where I collect all the great things I come across online, and there have been a bunch of good ones lately….
The Day My Son Gave Up On Me – on taking the opportunity right now to spend time with your kids, instead of putting them off until a more convenient time
Why I’m Back to Counting Daily Gifts – “Doubt fades and trust grows as I begin to recognize His presence, even in the minutiae of my everyday.”
How to Live an Exceptional Life, Even When Life Doesn’t Feel Exceptional – “…Living an exceptional life isn’t just an opportunity that comes along once in a lifetime. It’s an invitation that awaits us every single day.”
How to Quit Sugar in Five Days – Wish I’d had these tips seven years ago when I was quitting sugar!
I Miss the Village – Oh, what to say about this one?! Got a taste of “village” life at camp, and now I’m ruined for normal life! “I miss the village I never had. The one with mothers doing the washing side by side, clucking and laughing hysterically, tired in body but quick in spirit. We’d know each other so well: annoying one another from time to time, but never staying mad long because the truth is, we need each other.”
On Having a Son – “He snuggled against my body and wrapped his beautiful hand around my finger. I kissed his little head over and over, tears of joy filling my eyes. At that moment, I knew I couldn’t imagine life any other way, and I didn’t want to.” Ahhh!! It’s only a matter of weeks….:)
And now I have a baby room to put together!! I’ll be back soon with pictures.:)
