I sit for the 1st time today.........

So as I come to the end of a busy day, I begin to realize that I am very very tired. Then I think back to all that I did today.....organized our closet, took all the clothes out of our dresser, moved the dresser to the babies room, put the dresser that was in the babies room in our room, put all the clothes back in, tried to organize the babies room, (which by the way is the tiniest room ever, and we have an overstuffed recliner in there, that we both want to keep in there for comfort). Then I came to the realization that I am NESTING!!!! Then I got kind of worried, because I thought that people only nested when the babies birth is right around the corner (and I am only 28 weeks along). To my relief however, I did some looking online, and found that some people nest very early around the 4 month mark, so that was a relief. I don't know quite what I am going to do when I get the urge to nest just before the baby comes, because I don't really have much left to do!!!

I will post some pictures at some point, I just don't have the energy to push the button on the camera right now........

I wanted to add this email that I received to my blog, because it touched me, and made me think of the small things in life that I need to enjoy, so here it is;


To My Child

Just for this morning, I am going to smile when
I see your face and laugh when I feel like crying.

Just for this morning, I will let you choose
what you want to wear, and smile and say how perfect it is.

Just for this morning, I am going to step over
the laundry, and pick you up and take you to the park to play.

Just for this morning, I will leave the dishes
in the sink, and let you teach me how to put that puzzle of yours together.

Just for this afternoon, I will unplug the
telephone and keep the computer off, and sit with you in the backyard and blow
bubbles..

Just for this afternoon, I won't worry about
what you are going to be when you grow up, or second guess every decision I
have made where you are concerned.

Just for this afternoon, I will let you help me
bake cookies, and I won't stand over you trying to fix them.

Just for this afternoon, I will take us to
McDonald's and buy us both a Happy Meal so you can have both toys..

Just for this evening, I will hold you in my
arms and tell you a story about how you were born and how much I love you.

Just for this evening, I will let you splash in
the tub and not get angry.

Just for this evening, I will let you stay up
late while we sit on the porch and count all the stars.

Just for this evening, I will snuggle beside
you for hours, and miss my favorite TV shows.

Just for this evening when I run my fingers
through your hair as you pray, I will simply be grateful that God has given me
the greatest gift ever given.

I will think about the mothers and fathers who
are searching for their missing children, the mothers and fathers who are
visiting their children's graves instead of their bedrooms, and mothers and
fathers who are in hospital rooms watching their children suffer senselessly,
and screaming inside that they can't handle it anymore.

And when I kiss you goodnight I will hold you a
little tighter, a little longer. It is then, that I will thank God for you, and
ask him for nothing, except one more day...

My story

Welcome to my blessed life!! Meet myself, a 32 year old stay at home momma. Meet hubby, who I have been married to for 14 years. We got married right out of high school, and while there have been many hardships, my husband is my best friend, and I wouldn't change a thing. We are living life with a 6 year old Grade oner, Gracie and 3 year old toddler, Alysha, which has its challenges, but we love every minute of it. God has blessed us with everything we need as well as tonnes of great friends and family.
