Missed a day...

...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! :)

  1. It's so humbling and challenging to think...our kids will be who we are and not just what we tell them to be. It's so important, like you said, that we let the Lord refine us so that we're a good example for them to mimic.

    You never mentioned the applesause...that's awesome. You are totally suzy homemaker. I want to try some!
