Yes, I know, Molly's little cheeks are showing. This crax me up (get it??)...she puts on the weirdest clothing pieces (here we have some odds 'n' ends pj's and a bathing suit) and I love that her little buns show. hee hee. cute girl.
I think I have the squarest jaw since Jay Leno.
awww, this makes for a neat-0 Father's Day idea in my head....I just know David wants another scrapbook page in a frame for his Dad day celebration. I love my brood.
I'm really diggin' my post titles lately. so very....interesting.
Have you ever just felt so aggravated that you want to spit? I know that is wrong...I have no real reason to be that way. But so many situations around me make me feel a little outta control. Husband working from home, which really is quite neat and stuff. but.... yeah.
Kids bickering, friends wiggin' out, hot weather, bugs, etc etc, so on and so forth. All in all, I am blessed. I know this. I don't take that lightly. and I thank the Lord for the trials and tests He takes me thru. I know He is refining me. and there's a lot of work. I'm loyal but I'm non-confrontational. I'm friendly but I talk too much (God has really been dealing with me on this in the past year), I'm fun but I take things too far. I love the Lord but I let Him down all the time. Why am I saying all of this?
I don't know. my caffeine must be wearing off. the endorphins from my 6:30 workout have left the building.
I have lost a few friends in the past few months and it sucks. For whatever reasons, it's not fun or cool. I know and have faith that God is using this as part of a bigger plan for me. Not to say it doesn't hurt, because it does...a lot. but I will rest in the shelter of His wings. (no, He's not a bird but I like to think of my Redeemer as that bird at the end of Lord of the Rings, that rescues Sam and Frodo from Mordor, as it's melting). And I will praise Him for the people that are still actively in my life...I have an awesome, ambitious, amazingly UH-MAZINGLY talented, gracious, forgiving, loving husband, FIVE of the best kids on the planet, a great house, an awesome sister and her cool family, two cool brothers, nieces and nephews, an incredible set of parents that are still married after almost FORTY YEARS (whoa nelly, that's a long time)...and a group of friends that I learn from daily!
Why am I blogging all of this? for a few undisclosed reasons...but just because I can.
Hope this finds you and yours enjoying the sorta sunny, sorta warmish days of the Summer of 2009!
These thoughts really have nothing to do with the pix I posted, other than to just remind myself of the richness of life, when I feel like I'm down deep in the trenches. That's all. that's all.
