The bends and turns * the rough rapids * the slow gentle flow * the undercurrent * the wild and the tame * it's all here, come and listen.

A little bit of thankfulness...
~I am thankful for those rare quiet mornings when all my little early risers sleep in and I have a moment to myself in a relatively clean house. ~ Now that my husband is working again ((big smile)) it's so nice to wake up to coffee already made, and he always makes enough to leave me a cup. ~ We pulled out the Christmas tubs yesterday, and our tree (yes we have a fake tree). I love looking at all the little ornaments we have collected over the years and I am looking forward to putting them up on the tree this week, I call it my patchwork tree. We have collected a lot of Christmas books and stuffed animals over the years too, which I also unpacked last night. I am so thankful that my boys have a love for reading (as in listening while I read). They were the most excited about the 'new' books. Looking at them all snuggled up with the stuffed animals, squished together on the couch, listening to me read Christmas books, it warmed my heart. I over heard Bubu calling God on his toy cell phone and thanking him for Christmas and telling him all about the Christmas stuff we have, it was adorable. ~ While the wind has been raging (crazy wild winds lately) and the rain pouring I give thanks for every night that my children go to bed in a warm home with food in their bellies and love in their hearts.~
I have a seperate blog now for me to journal about Atty's health issues. If you want to check it out Click Here. I am going to be keeping this as our family blog and updating issues with Atty on the other blog from now on.

Busy homeschooling mom to four amazing kiddos. I met my husband when I was fifteen. It's been a long road with lots of ups and downs and I am so glad we have stayed on this path together to enjoy this adventure. I am so lucky to be married to my best friend and the love of my life.
