multitudes on mondays




Perspective.  

It's all a gift.  

Continuing to count...consciously looking for things to be thankful for.  So much to count, but so easy to forget in the emotions of life.  The difficult times, the times where I just want to rant & the times where I just can't stop what is coming out of my mouth.  

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

This is what I'm doing.  I'm looking for the good.  It's there--I just have to look.  And look HARD some days!  :)  

6. Reservations made, plans forming, lists to check...something to look forward to!
7. Technology that keeps us *close*
8. Rain on the window & pajamas on girlies
9. Little Bit singing This Little Light of Mine {don't let Kay-ton blow it out!}
10. Getting up every morning and trying to do better
11. Sound of Big Stuff reading & loving it...this momma's prayer answered
12. Clean sheets

Won't you count with me?  Beat me to 1,000!  I dare you!  :)

why abby wants to *off* the groundhog...




Sometimes the noise level makes me want to go outside & lay in the snow too, buddy.
I understand the need.



She finally went outside for longer than 2 minutes!


A girl & her sled...


 A super cute girl who doesn't mind wet hair.


The two snow bunnies!


This is how we got her out of the house...


Hey, shouldn't someone tell her to point her sled a different direction?

Where IS her mother?

More fun with Daddy...

mulititudes on mondays



Okay, so I think I'm ready to jump in...reading Ann Voskamp's book.  It truly is amazing.  I have been following her blog for a while now, and what a beautiful writer.  Gifted.

So, I'll add my list to the growing number of people wanting to focus on being thankful.  Giving the thanks to God.  Not just when things are easy, but always.

1. Chocolate kisses to count the days
2. A fourth round...just until she wins
3. Early morning girls crowding in my bed
4. A husband who puts others before himself
5. Furry warm snuggles on the couch from the hairy mongrel

Small beginning, but big intentions!
Bloggy love,
jpb

weekend

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
The girls have been fighting off some head colds
{as you can see from Abby's red nose!},
and they seem to be doing MUCH better!

Woohoo.

Now, on to the important topic...
when did my dog become a cat?
What is he doing???
I'm sure that Abby had something to do with this, 
but he had already claimed the recliner...


Have a great week!
Lots of updates are a comin'...
