...on purpose. I figure if I'm going to do this blog thing I can't let it run my life, so I skipped a day :) Yesterday, well, the whole weekend was amazing. Friday night I honestly don't remember...I think I counted bingo tickets. Saturday I got up and went to the farmer's market, the orchard and a couple stores with my mom. Then I made applesauce...and more applesauce...and more applesauce. 18 quarts so far and I'm only 2/3 of the way done. It was awesome. I want to be one of those moms that does stuff like that...and it tastes SO much better than store bought. Oh, that's what I did Friday night - I made some chunky applesauce for my dad real quick so that he wouldn't get suspicious why I asked what kind he likes! :)
I've discovered that I want to help people. Especially kids - I love my kid so much I feel like I need to make sure all kids feel loved. For right now that will consist more of teens then of kids but one day, one day I hope to work with kids. We shall see! I was reading 1 Timothy today and was reminded that I serve a living God - He is at work all around me so I will watch for opportunites to be invited to work alongside Him with whomever He sees fit.
I feel like I've matured lately...I think knowing that my daughter is going to watch and mimic me I want to make sure I'm the person I want her to be...if that makes sense. I can definitely feel some of my rough edges chipping away and flaws I ignore getting the spotlight. It's a tough process but one I am grateful for.
I need to get to work - Mondays are always slightly overwhelming with the amount of things to get done quickly, but we'll make it happen! :)
