So dang it for trying.... :)
No, really....I'm ok with it. I do love this challenge already. now, if I'd actually PRINT out some pictures, I'd be doing very well.
This is a nice addition to the 1,000 Gifts challenge that I'm still doing. I'm a journaler. (my computer says that is not a word. whatever). So these daily tasks of putting JOY in my face are so good for my journals and scrapbooks. really, I do need a good system for printing out pix. I. am. so. behind.
Someday, when I die, my kids will have so much reading to do. :) some of it, probably testy. some sad. some JOYFUL. hopefully, all of it's HOPEFUL.
This, Tory, will also be a good reason to get me to my blog EVERYDAY. At least for a 21 more days. dontcha think? gotta give you something to look to while you are working on your dissertation...or is that dessertation...yum, dessert.
Today was a lovely day...woke to a smattering of the white stuff and deep cold. We've gotten pretty spoiled in Indiana this year with a milder than usual winter. I thank the Lord for that. A lot.
I woke to prepare for my 2nd Wednesday of volunteering at OMS. I met Carolyn today. she asked me how many kids I had. I told her 5...6. She asked how old my youngest was. How do you NOT tell someone Jack's story when they ask like that? She was very compassionate and it feels wonderful to work on my story of what to tell folks when they ask. I saw Valetta again. She is inspiration at it's very finest...I could get used to these meetings. Marty, David, Aiko, Shatomi (surely I'm misspelling this name but hope I'm not), Helen, whose 22 year old grandson, Nate, newly married, is undergoing research to find out what kind of rare cancer is invading his very young body. I know that sweet woman would appreciate any prayers you can offer. Marty's meal of enchiladas were a hit with all of the OMS staff in attendance.
Tomorrow is a busy day...I guess it's actually tomorrow right now.
We start our homeschool co-op up again after a long holiday break. Levi and Molly will be involved in Valentine's Day parties. How exciting is this?? They are both pretty stoked about this and I hope to have some pix to post here tomorrow night since I've already done Day 9 of 30 Days.
Okiedokie. Hope you are doing well, wherever you are...We are doing very well...moment by sweet little freckle-faced moments.
Hugs to you. until tomorrow.....................................................................
