Best Mother’s Day

First, Happy Mother’s Day to you all!

This past Mother’s Day was one of the best I have had in a long time.  I had reminded my girls to please make me a card since they had forgotten last year.  So Deanna, my 6 year old, made me like 20 cards.  She is so stinking cute and so sensitive.  Of course the girls had things that their teachers had them make in school.  I always cherish the homemade gifts.

The ride to Rutgers was great.  My husband and I talked a lot.  I felt like he was finally listening to me.  I was able to express what my short and long term goals are.  I was able to get him on my side finally.  He now admitted that he will be more supportive.  I was so ecstatic.  We all need our spouses to have our backs and encourage us.  I feel relieved that I will have that now.  Some of my prayers have been answered.

I decided I wanted to go to Rutgers University’s plant sale.  I was hoping to purchase some seedlings because I had not started seeds this year. I was bummed to find out that the seeds were nongmo and organic but the soil they were growing in was regular store bought not considered organic.  BUMMER!

Afterwords we headed to a little pizza parlor that we frequent often.  One of the workers is awesome.  We love coming in and talking to him.  We found out that he is starting his own restaurant with another person soon.  I told him to email me after I gave him my business card and a sample.  I am happy to support him if he has food we will eat.

When we got home, we decided to play outside for a little while.   We all took our turns getting a ride on the 4 wheeler.  So far it has brought more family time between Jim and the girls.  I have yet to muster up the courage to drive it myself.  Soon!

I am thankful to God with blessing me with a wonderful day and choosing me to be the Mom of my 4 amazing, little girl.  They are true blessings and gifts from God.  Thank you for Jim having a positive attitude too!

Prayer is a Steering Wheel

 

Prayer is not a spare wheel, that when you pull out when in trouble. But it is a steering wheel that directs the right path throughout!

Yes having that relationship with our Heavenly Father where we talk to him daily, He will lead us.  I long for a relationship with Him.  It is so important to take time daily to talk with Him.  An active prayer life, can bring peace and strength.  I have been focusing on thanking God for all the wonderful things in my life.  When things are not going exactly the way I had hoped or planned, often I need to stop and focus on everything that is right.

Have a blessed day everyone!
