Things I'm Loving...

"I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is."

Those are the words of Kristy who blogs over at Paisley Jade.

Wise, wise words.

There is soooooo much happening in our lives right now. It's one of those frightening rides at the un-amusement park. Up. Down. Sideways. Inverted roll -- all at a frenetic pace.
Yesterday I gave this boy an envelope with his monthly bus fee in cash. The envelope never made it to the office. We lectured on responsibility blah blah blah blah blah... And we prayed about it. This morning the bus driver handed the envelope to the monitor who handed it to our son. Lesson learned? I don't know about the responsibility part, but the part where we have a God who cares & answers prayers -- I'm sure he got it!
A couple weeks ago this son did a fine job as Doc Robinson in his school's production of "The Trial of Tom Sawyer" which ran for two evenings. Auditions were quite a stretch for him. And he persevered through long rehearsals every night. Now he is looking forward to his freshman year so he can be in the high school plays.
We're anticipating this one graduating in May, so we had his Senior pictures done by a good friend from church. Megan is fabulous!
I am so thankful for my much better half! Do you know that this busy man shopped at five different stores before he found my perfume?
              I love you, Keith!

  1. You are such a proud and honest mama. I love it! Oh, responsibility...I'm still learning that one. Amen for a God who listens and forgives! Have a great weekend, Melody. :)
