she blogs.

It's an outlet! Who can blame me. It's also for procrastination because that list is a mile long.

Grand opening is Friday [Andi is doing awesome at planning that!], taxes are due beginning of May and I have five other individuals to feed and clean up after.

LOVING life & all the blessings being thrown my way.

the one where she learned something

the one where she learned something...

that title sort of explains it. i learned a bit of something this weekend.

i wasn't with all my boys this weekend. i went 1300kms away with my eldest [boy1] and my dad to go visit my brother, his girlfriend and their little baby girl missK, my niece!

it was great.

although i was reminded of why my brother and i butt heads. it happened many times. and when i thought all that came out of his mouth was poo, he said something nice and i was taken a back.

whoa.

the tone was not feeling right, so i had questioned it's sincerity.

then thanked him and agreed that it was great to be there.

i THANKED him.

my book 1000gifts i have been reading has been teaching me this. thankfulness in EVERYTHING. the good the bad everything. all things. all moments. eucharisteo.

my list of thanks grew again today and my heart was again turned towards God as He intended. so amazing. everytime.

The one where the mom cries

...because her spit fire third child [of four] turned five years old.

I look at this photo and I see five years of learning, five years of hands more than full, five years of tears and laughter and joy. Five years learning more and more about his personality. 


Five years I am so thankful for. Five years wondering how green or grey his eyes are in that moment. 



Five years of those bigs eyes melting my heart every time I gaze into them. 



Five years praying for him. Five & more years being blessed by his presence. 



Thank you for this gift God.

497 - stillness of the early morning 
498 - the words that flow so easy onto paper
499 - heat blowing through the vents to cut into the cool air
500 - all this

500. Wow I wasn't sure when I would make it this far. I've far surpassed it as there is before Dec 27th in my journal but that will be for another day. 

Be well my friends. Eucharisteo everyday.

The one where she takes more pictures.


The one glance to acknowledge the papparatzi. Three games this weekend just for this boy! 


This restaurant has become a fave... & they don't have washrooms, they have outhouses. I even had a paleo compliant meal! Not Whole30 though as my dressing likely had sugar in it. 


The sunset on Saturday night was gorgeous!
