C'est la Vie: More Hours Needed

Just a couple more hours today and I could have accomplished all that I had hoped I would... too bad for me. But you know what? I think I did all the things that really matter. I told the people I love that I love them. I kissed my daughter's boo-boo. I hugged my son when he stumbled into the kitchen with blurry eyes this morning. I helped a teenage girl finish her homework. I sent care packages to our family who live far away. I gave an elderly woman the change she was missing for her purchase at the department store. I volunteered at my daughter's elementary school. I studied the Bible with a group of amazing Christian women. It was a good Thursday even if it didn't have twenty-six hours.

Moms, take heart and be encouraged. Even if the ONLY thing you did today was hold your newborn baby. Even if you feel like the only thing you did was change diapers and wipe spit-up off your shoulder. Even if you spent all day nursing a sick husband. You did exactly what you were supposed to today. It is the people we love and the kindness and love that we share that matter. Never forget that! Being a wife and mom is the best and most important job in the world.

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic.

"Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration."

Psalm 16

This Psalm has been blessing me. I pray it will bless you too. Thanks to BibleGateway.com for making it so easy to share these beautiful words with you.16 Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
I have no good apart from you.” 3 As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,
in whom is all my delight. 4 The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;
their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out
or take their names on my lips. 5 The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup;
you hold my lot.
6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 7 I bless the Lord who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me.
8 I have set the Lord always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my
