“Your love never fails, it never gives up, it never runs out on me…” are the first words I heard running through my head as I opened my eyes this morning. We had practiced this song the previous night at praise team practice. It’s not uncommon for those songs to get stuck in my head.
And then there was this note I found on the floor beside my bed…
She wrote it a while back but I’d say those two things are pretty nice ways to start your day. Incidentally, this note now sits atop a few loads of laundry waiting to be folded. *smile*
Speaking of laundry…every morning I take a load out to the garage to start our daily 3 loads a day laundry washing routine…and I usually take a detour through the garden. Especially this time of year. Something new every day…
Breakfast is eaten and a round of eye drops is distributed for the pink-eye epidemic in our home. And thankfulness is expressed for the wisdom of the pediatrician who warned us to always keep pink-eye medicine around because a family of five kids is likely to need it.
The teenagers still sleep, the littles clean their bedroom, and I steal away for a few minutes of quiet before the day accelerates into not-so-quiet activity.
Everyone slowly awakens and we meet for a little math & reading. We are in the end-of-the-school-year stretch now. We can feel summer knocking on our door.
Lunch. Time out doors. Swinging. Spinning.
David comes home a bit earlier than normal and loads up the kids for a fishing trip at a local park. I stay home to get dressed for a date night and to work on schedules. Summer schedules, to be exact.
Trying my best to not get overwhelmed by all the ink on these two months…and the ink that still needs to be applied. But July is looking quiet – for now. I’m going to do my best to ensure that July is actually a restful month for us.
The kids return home hungry and I realize that I need to fix a little supper! I started proofing the yeast for our homemade pizzas and the next thing I know, I hear a little pirate voice saying, “Arrrgh!” I turn to see my little matey with his dough hook hand! *smile*
Everyone feasts on pizza. Then the kiddos settle in for a movie with an ice cream dessert. The teenagers are left in charge as David & I slipped out for a little date night.
A quick trip to Walgreens and the doughnut shop, and we head home to tuck our babies in for the night. Not a fancy date but still just as special…
Just a simple look at our everyday lives on the 10th of May, 2013.
