This is a sweet pic. of Lillie while we were getting ready for bed that night.
1.31.11- Maggie had to turn in her animal project. Her animal of choice was a parrot. She and hubby worked hard on making her parrot who was named Polly. We took this before we left for school on Monday.
2.2.11 - My bookclub books arrived!!!!
2.3.11 - Thursday......I had a pretty stressed out day.The sweetest part of my day was bedtime with Brady.
Isn't he handsome all ready for bed?
2.4.11 - On Friday, I spent the afternoon decorating for the Father/Daughter Dance.
Today, loving as a very was in the form of choosing whether I would be selfish or if I would be selfless. Usually, by the time the kids go to bed, I are ready for some time to myself.....and usually I have about a million more things to do before I got to to bed. Because of this, I don't have much patience with kids who get up over and over again for whatever reason. Tonight, it was Allie. She was scared. I told her to listen to the music, think good thought and pray. I kissed her goodnight and walked downstairs. Not ten minutes later, she was downstairs saying she heard a dog scratching the floor upstairs. I sent her back to her room, reminding her that she should pray and think about good things and listen to the music.
As soon as I she started back up the stairs though, I heard God say "Love as a Verb.....you are being selfish....serve her. love her. be selfless!"
So, I went upstairs and laid with her, prayed with and for her, and hopefully made her feel safe and secure and loved.
Being self -less instead of self - ish......That's truly loving!!!
