and i'm back.
In retrospect, and in the scope of life, it was super trivial, and plainly, just an inconvenience. I realized through it that I am so incredibly thankful we even have a/c. And I am so incredibly thankful the boys are safe and healthy. And I am so incredibly thankful for our amazing church community - one of the families from our church let us borrow a large window a/c unit to use and we bought a small one for the boys to share a room at night - not an expense we were expecting, but worth it to be able to be home and have the boys in their routine (small children and routine - eating, sleeping, playing - is key :)). I realized that I easily take things for granted. And this was a definite help to see that, and I am thanking God for all of the little things that I am so inclined to forget day-in and day-out.
So all of that to say. I have been trying to catch up from those several days. I had a bunch of orders from my shop come in right before this all happened, and am thankful for super understanding and gracious customers, as the shipments were delayed almost a week.
As I am getting back into the swing of things, I am working on a few things - like getting my workspace cleaned up and re-organized (a little tour coming soon!). Planning some new journals (!!!), and really just trying to take it easy and enjoy these last several weeks until we meet our new little one! I will be posting some more random thoughts and info. this week -- blog and shop related.

I know "old people" are notorious for making the remark I am going to make. Their growing up happens in a blink of an eye. Savor, enjoy, relish, regard and honor the child....my baby started kindergarten 30 something years ago and both my grands are past kindergarten and I swear to you I didn't see it coming but only going......ReplyDelete
You are in such a beautiful part of your life as a Mommy. You are to be envied and admired. Oma Linda

als - i'd love to have a tour of your workspace :) so, thanks for making that possible soon. i've been staring at the pix of your paper shelves, trying to see how you have it organized - ha! have a great day :)
Thanks Alice! I hope to share it next week - finishing cleaning/purging/organizing this weekend! :)Delete
I was reading this post today about your a/c breaking down and the heat you were experiencing.
Today here in Sydney Australia it got up to 112.6F and it was the first day that I have ever had air conditioning in my house (we have been married for 25 years). I was so grateful. The men arrived to install it at 7.30am and by midday it was working which was good because it was already close to 100 by then. It is only in the lounge room downstairs but I am grateful to have that. It made such a big difference today.
I found your blog last week and I am really enjoying it. I made my own journal this week (actually on my birthday) and have picked a word for this year. My word is Hope. I have so many hopes for this year, especially for my 2 boys who are going through some difficult times. It is also a reminder for me that all my hope is in Jesus and that it is not misplaced.
Thank you for the inspiration.
