Friday's are the hardest days for me. So, today I am praying for wisdom, patience, understanding, kindness, love and gentleness with my children.
It's the end of a long week. Up early every day and going to bed not as early as I would like (or need).
I read somewhere once, "When you are a mother, every day is Monday." How true that is! While I look forward to the weekends I haven't been able to figure out all the reasons why. I don't get to sleep in, I hit the floor running since my kids are early risers, I follow the same routine as I do during the week, and I'm still just as tired by the end of the day. So, really nothing changes for me except that I don't have to sign in to work at 12:00 (which is nice).
Tomorrow I have plans to go meet up with a friend of mine. She lives about an hour and a half away and there is a consignment store near her that is holding their bi-annual bag sale! They have almost new clothes, mostly brand name, and at a GREAT deal! So, I'm very excited for that. I'll be able to get out of the house for a while and daddy and the kids can "bond"! I never realized how much I would love driving until I started working from home. Now I love the quiet rides, or not quiet depending on if I crank the tunes! Plus, it makes me that much more excited to be home later on!
Children are beckoning me and so is my cold coffee!
Don't forget to keep praying for Tricia and Nate! Tricia's surgery was successful, but now the healing process begins. Pray for her strength and her body's ability to accept the new lungs. Pray for Nate as he is obviously by her side constantly which leads to not a lot of rest. Pray for Gwyneth and her continued growth so she will be well enough to leave the hospital and go home with her parents!!! Please click here to read their amazing story of faith!
I'll be back later with a fresh cup of hot coffee!
