spring has sprung!

yep, that’s what a successful mealtime looks like in our house.

we got to go up and visit Grammy yesterday. it was such fun to have a wonderful visit as well as a delicious dinner prepared for us (and cleaned up too!).

it was
the big kids played outside for hours, painted and even had a picnic lunch.
there was a lovely breeze flowing though the house and i heard birds chirping and
smelled the sweet scent of night jasmine (B and my absolute favorite)
wafting through the open windows.

one of my little artists.

i told myself (and everyone) that i wouldn’t start working out since having L until his sleep got better (because that meant that my sleep would get better).
well folks, that time has finally come! i am proud to announce that he only woke one time last night. but, that also means that it’s time for me to get fit. i was trying to explain my workout plan to B last night, but he had a hard time understanding me because of the thin mints in my mouth.

D and i built forts with his wooden blocks this afternoon. even though his uncle proudly serves in the army, D’s army guys are the bad guys.
it’s because, apparently they are from a different country.

B took the big kids on a run today. God bless him. L was sleeping and i relished in the
of the house.
there wasn’t so loud as a peep made. i spent the time prepping for dinner and breakfast while cleaning my kitchen sink. i mean really cleaning it. flylady says “shine your sink!” i used to work in a house where after we used the sink we’d have to wipe it out with a paper towel so that there wouldn’t be any water left in the sink.
yes, the sink in which its sole function is to have water flowing through it.

tonight, B and i got our taxes in order. i am in charge of any and all medical expenses and thankfully, B does everything else. it was tough, really tough remembering so vividly what went on last year. not just the hospital stays but the unbelievable amount of doctor’s visits we had to go to.
just from october and november, L had eight appointments.
and it wasn’t only going to the doctor’s that was hard.
it was what they would tell me.
the things that no mother
wants to hear.
but, i can now see that so many things they told me so matter-of-factly,
haven’t happened. and they probably never will.
it has taken quite a while but i have finally started to not worry about such things.
our only job is to be faithful to the Lord who cares for us like no other.
be faithful under every circumstance.

As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him,
“Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”
“Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus,
“but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life.”
John 9:1-3
