I really need to get my act together. I'm in the same boat as another blogging friend or two it seems. As of late, I can't seem to get my stuff together. And by stuff I mean even some of the simplest of daily chores! Most of you know our family recently went through some major changes and major health issues over these past six months or so. I thought by now, I'd be up and running on all cylinders, facing life with energy and zeal. But it just "ain't" happening! Could it have something to do with my age? I turn the big 50 in November. Shhh, don't tell anyone!
I've given myself a good talkin' to about my lack of reaching my own goals. I've had the hubster pray with me about it. I've joked about it with others. I've cried about it with my sister. I've tried to ignore it. I've given that ol' devil a chewing out. I've mused about it at odd hours, yes, many times at midnight. I'm tired of thinking about not being quite with it around here, so ...I've decided that for now I'm just going to rejoice in the fact that I walked for an hour yesterday and plan on doing it again today.Shane did get some lessons done yesterday and by God's grace, we'll do even more today. At least that's a start in the right direction of my former life and what we called normal.
Now, If y'all will indulge me, I'd like to share some sweet photos of my great nieces visiting my children's church class a couple of Sunday's ago! They are here visiting from Paraguay and leave us in about 6 weeks. I'm already having withdrawal symptoms. Let me tell you, these little princesses have a way of stealing hearts! Their giggles and squeals when I walk into a room is priceless!
Baby Lexi didn't like getting her clothes changed for church!
Sarah gifted the girlies with matching dresses, not seen here as they are still in the bags.
My Mom brought baby Lexi into our Children's Church for a photo op ---It was, after all, Lexi's first time to church! Elena and Abbie are very proud to be big sisters now.
Elena and Abbie LOVE LOVE LOVE playing in the puppet theatre at the end of class time!
My helpers in Children's Church"
Elena, Matthew, Abbie, and Seth hold up the visuals to the little song,
"Whisper a prayer in the morning,
Whisper a prayer at noon.
Whisper a prayer in the evening.
Twill keep your heart in tune."
My niece said the girls went around their house singing it all week.
How precious is that? Be still my soul!
Here are the three princesses;
Abbie (age 2) Ya' gotta notice the toes! , Elena (age 4), and Lexi (1 month)
I love 'em to pieces!
