Someone left a window wide open last night, so it is a bit nippy in here. For those of you in the northern climes, look at it this way, we are feeling your pain. A teeny bit. lol. I love the hearts in my cocoa, don't you? They are more evidence of my inconsistency with the finances, but hey, this is love. Love with cocoa, in my favorite cup, love to share with my girls, love to just look at. Or a symbol of it, anyway. I see love in the background, too. We used to eat on a two-by-six-foot plastic table. Love moved a friend to offer us her family's oak dining room table. After my children leaned on it too heavily and for too long, the top fell right off the pedestal pieces. Love screwed it back together. :) I love this table. Not in the same way I love my husband, of course, but you ladies know what I mean.
It's been a busy few days, as we've had company. I have always enjoyed my friend in the ministry, Merlynn, but I have a renewed admiration for her. She is organized, disciplined, thoughtful, and committed to the Lord and her family; what's more, she laughs easily, even at herself! and is fun to be with. I really must stop taking myself so seriously and learn to laugh more. I feel refreshed and motivated to clear some of the clutter out of my house, and on a major scale this time. I prayed this morning for the Lord to help me to be ruthless. Really I should start with my own stuff, but the girls' closet needs a good going-through. So do the rest of the closets, and under the beds, and and and.
And I am going to start T-Tapping today. I've been saying that for several days, but my motivation went out the door at some point. Not to mention, I have not had the privacy I need to bounce my flab all over the place for an hour while I learn the workout. See what I mean about not taking myself so seriously? But today I am going to do it. Right after... after lunch. I think.
Well, I am just a ramblin' on, and I need to get to work. I'm going to remember those little hearts in my cocoa while I patiently teach my children, exercise my unloveable body, and clean ruthlessly. Thank you for your patience. My blog will be back in business one of these days. ♥
