Life. Doesn't it pass like a roller coaster ride? Sometimes I feel like I am slowly clink, clink, clinking my way up the rail when suddenly we crest over the top and things are flying at me like a whirlwind! We have had great times with friends and family as spring finally begins to arrive in northwest Montana. I am hoping that we will have our first 70 degree day of the year this week, but I won't hold my breath since I am still seeing frozen patches of snow in some places.
Between birthdays and graduations all around we have spent the last month celebrating! My sweet daughter has finally met all of her relative's on Norse's side of the family.
I haven't had time to weigh in on the other hot topics in the blogoshpere (Is there really a Hell? How should we feel about the death of Osama Bin Laden?) and I am totally okay with that. I figure there are a whole bunch more people, with significantly more time than I have, to address those weighty issues.
I did however have time to open my most awesome gift EVER from my hubby and kiddo's. They got me this great Molded heart bracelet from Lisa Leonard. I love getting things designed and crafted by wonderful people.
I also won a super sweet giveaway at Mommy Long Legs. It was this beautiful nightgown.
I've got my fingers crossed that I can fit into it. If not it will just give me a little more motivation to tame the tush size and start working out regularly (or I'll give it away to one of you). Also, the owner of Mommy Long Legs grew up in Montana and even lived in the same small town that half my in-laws reside in. Small world isn't it? Check out their blog because they are giving away MORE Cake lingerie items this week!
This weekend also brought another opportunity into my life - will you pray that I have clarity in discerning God's will for me in this area? I have really stepped away from too many obligations to commit myself to my family, but I know I would have fun if I said "yes" to this cause. I also feel that I need to get myself back on track with my relationship with God before I can be effective in the prospective role. While I have increased my prayer life with lots of "Lord, help me know how to handle this crazy kid" and "Please, let us make it home before someone needs to eat or pee", pleas to God, my time in quiet meditation and Bible reading have significantly decreased!
Finally, be watching for another little giveaway from Incourage & Dayspring. I just received another awesome product and can't wait to share what it is and offer you the chance to get one yourself! Check back this week!
I'm off to tackle the mound of laundry that awaits! Weekend trips mean Monday madness at my house, but at least the kids are napping!
