Deut. 6:4-7
"Listen, Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is One. Love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

Our new Angel

Here is our sweet new Angel. Prince, our other cat that we have had for a year, went missing a month ago. :( I was very sad, he was such a cool cat. My Mother asked when the obsession to always have a cat will go away for me, I guess never! I went out this last Sunday and got this adorable little girl cat I found in the paper. We named her Angel. She's so tiny! I think she will be a nice fit in our family, even Anya approves.

The BIG 3!!!

My swetie turned the big THREE!! She's quite the big girl. We celebrated at Chick Fil A, just like big sisters birthday, but with a couple less kids to minimize the confusion. She had a great time and loved the Mickey Mouse theme that she had picked out. It was a great day all around.

I hate change

Anyone who knows me ususally will tell me that I'm so good at making changes, moving, making new friends, things that go with being military. Well, those who have known me in the last couple of years, know I hate it. I'm tired of it. Well, I guess I need to come up with something else to pray for other that things to stop changing, because I guess God thinks I still don't have it down. :) He knows best, right? He knows what we can handle, right? we go again, more change! Kelly is taking a job with his company to go you know where. Yuck! He will be as safe as he can be over there, but he will still be gone a year. Yuck!

The thing is, something struck me as we tried to make this decision. In my Beth Moore class it was asked if you ever had a rough time and realized God was preparing you for something even harder. Oh yeah! You could say that it has NOT been a piece of cake moving here. I have been isolated, homesick for WA, my favorite place we have lived so far, and I have struggled to find a church family. Then, right when things seem to be getting better, I find a church, I have friends I can count on, and WHAM! I am faced with a year without Kelly. Do you think God was getting me ready? I sure hope so, I'm not sure I'm ready, but I'm going to do my best.

A Mom's Weekend

Let me just start off saying that I have a great husband. He is so much more than the typical Dad when it comes to helping around the house. But, he and I had a little discussion (that's what we'll call it anyways ;) ) that prompted this thought.

Oh! How I wish that Mom's got a weekend!!! Don't you? I mean, the rest of the people in the world, maybe spend their Saturday morning sleeping in, taking it a little easy. I tell you what....if anything, weekends are harder for moms that the rest of the week. Granted, we don't have the work week structure in my house during the week, but there is a pulse. The weekend....does nothing but disrupt that pulse. Dad's home... things don't get done that may normally get done on a day to day basis, Dad's home.... the TV and video games are on ALOT more than normal. I don't know about you other mom's, but Dad's simple presence in the house even makes me lazy! My brain wants to take the weekend off, but oh, I will pay for it on Monday!

Don't get me wrong, Kelly is so great to me, that I end up getting to sleep in when he's not working or we are not going to church, but I just wish, after a Saturday like today (my kids were angels!) that I got the BREAK from the normal week like other people. I may stop doing dishes, and laundry and get to sleep a little extra, my I still have to think about meals, deal with fighting, entertain, and watch over my children, which on days like today is exhausting.

I'm sure tomorrow will be better and I already am winding down having my children in bed for almost an hour. Thank you God for a new day tomorrow! :)

On another small note, I have never really understood how my parents were during a draught in NM when they would see rain. We are so severely dry here in GA and SC and it has been raining steadily since lunch time! Praise God!!!!! I am beside myself, I keep going to the front porch admiring the rain and thanking God over and over for it. Who knew hurricane season would be a welcome change?

SAHM - What did you do ALL day?!

I ran across this Dear Abby type article about SAHMs and I love it! So, for all you without kids, read and learn. And for those with kids, take a minute and read so that you know you are not alone ;)
