excerpts from my journal

September 4, 2014

Inspired by this, I’m going to share periodically some of the personal journaling I do. Tuesday morning. 5:30 a.m. Liam is sleeping in my lap in a dense bundle of warmth and cuteness. I am watching Meredith sleep on the monitor, all curled up. And I can hear David softly snoring. I just drank a cup of coffee and wrapped up the last lesson in the Bible study on James. What an amazing book. I am so grateful for my life. For these children I’ve been entrusted. For the husband who is my partner and my love. For our home. It is all a happiness. But for all of these good gifts from God, I know there is more. There…

Genius:┬áThis was a really weird week because our census was super low at work so I got to take Monday and Tuesday off. I knew I was getting Monday off, but I didn’t know about Tuesday. Three day weekends make a huge difference in my attitude because I felt like I had SO MUCH TIME. I took things slow and easy on Saturday and Sunday because I knew I had an extra day to get things done.
