Today I'm thankful for my kids. Although they cause me much angst, frustration and gritting of teeth, it's easily balanced out by joy.
Today it was my turn to do the "Call to Worship" at church again. Have I mentioned how much I abhor speaking in front of crowds (even if it's only a handful of friends)? I stumbled through Matthew 5:3-16 this morning and I hope I didn't butcher it too badly.
My mom rides to church with me, the kids and my niece each week, and on the way back home she had to make a stop at the grocery store. So while she was shopping, I sat in the car and listened to the kids fight, whine and be difficult. As I was searching in my purse for my cell phone, I noticed my reflection in a pair of Dave's sunglasses that had fallen onto the trashed floor of the Jeep. I'm thinking I need to clean out the Jeep. What do you think? Can you "spy" me in amongst the rubbish?
As I was unloading the kids from the car, after we got home, the sun came out for ONE split second. Luckily, my camera was in my hands at the time. This was all I got. We're expecting a really bad storm to move through late tonight/early tomorrow.
Can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring.
After church, my cousins Erin (left) and Sharon (right) stopped by to visit and go through some of my purged scrapbooking stash.
Erin brought her little boy Jase, and Sharon brought her hubby Ryan (below) and her little girl, Ashton.
