C'est la Vie: More Reasons To Love My Kids

I wasn't excited to make dinner tonight, so I looked into the refrigerator and prayed for a vision. I spotted a bag of English Muffins, spaghetti sauce, shredded cheese, pepperoni - BINGO! Mini pizzas it is. The best part? My kids were totally excited! Just one more reason to love my kids: dinner can be boxed mac and cheese, PB&J, rolled up lunch meat and cheese, even scrambled eggs and toast and they are happy.

You've heard me say we had a rough start to the week, so I thought I'd take a few moments to remember this and other reasons to love my kids.
They sometimes play in their room in the morning instead of getting me up at the crack of dawn.
They like to help in the kitchen.
They will go out to get the paper in the morning when I'm still in my PJ's and don't want the neighbors to see.
They know how to unload the dishwasher.
They remind me of places I've told them we need to go (meanwhile, I've forgotten).
They keep me entertained everyday with their singing, dancing, and artwork.
They tell me I'm good at sports even though I'm really not.
They love me... even when I'm not the mom I'd like to be.

Moms, let's never forget what a blessing it is to be called "mommy." What are the things you love most about your kids?

Give Thanks: Part 4

KEEP READING FOR A GREAT SCENTSY GIVEAWAY! There is so much to be thankful for, it really is hard to decide what will make these next few posts... but today is an ode to my husband. If there is one thing he loves, it's great smells. Although great smells come from great cooking, they also come from great candles. Now with kids around candles can feel a little risky, but then came Scentsy . This is a "flameless" candle which is actually kind of a throw back to the scented wax warmers that used a candle. No candles here, just plug in the warmer and the small light bulb does all the work. I'm a fan of the nightlight sized warmers, but the larger Scentsy warmers are quite lovely. Browse the entire Holiday Collection to find the one perfect for your home or start thinking about gift giving - the combinations are endless! And look at this festive warmer of the month (10% off): But now we need to talk about fragrance! Silver Bells is the fragrance of the month (als

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." Click HERE to read the entire post - you have to see the photographs! You'll also find all kinds of topics on sustainable and simple living. Enjoy!

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  whole being rejoices;      my
