The month of May....oh how I love you the month of May....two girls in our house turn a year older....throw in Mother's Day...oh yes, my birthday too (YUCK!) and that means about four parties here at our house.....and several graduation parties...and wedding announcements. Plus finishing up school, planting flowers, gardens, doing projects that we've been waiting to do, planning vacations, summer camps, buying clothes, supplies for those trips...oh yes...cooking, cleaning, etc....does your head hurt yet?
I have a mess going on in our house right now...which is making me crazy! A dishwasher that is a very long story but the repair people have been ordering wrong parts, installing incorrectly....you get it....NIGHTMARE! and did I mention that I have a million parties going on now...and yes....today (under the wise advice of my husband) we are now using none other than paper everything....yep! I totally caved!
In the midst of my despair I happened to look at my handy notebook that I keep by my bedside to write everyday more gifts that God has given me....that's all I needed...didn't even need to open it for my heart to be softened...then I opened it and here's a list from just the weekend...
