Our family had an awesome day today. At least, I thought that it was awesome! My husband gave a wonderful message in church this morning. Now, I know I've said this before, but Joel is really a gifted speaker. And I'm not just saying that. I wish you could listen to his sermon from today---maybe sometime I'll figure out how to do a download of something like that...
Then, after church, my family came up for dinner (minus my mom, who is in Florida, and my brother, whom my mom is visiting) We made reaaaallly yummy kabobs on the grill. And the best thing is, I have more in the freezer to have later this week :)
After the kids nap, Joel and I took them for a walk. Cosette walked most of the way, and then she rode on Joel's shoulders. It was a really warm, nice day here. Cosette jibber-jabbered the entire walk. We were constantly cracking up at things she was saying, like, "These stupid flies!" (I am the guilty one for teaching her the word 'stupid :/ ) Then, we came home and played hide-and-seek in the front yard. We spent the part of the evening before the kids bedtime watching home videos of Cosette's first birthday.
I know, I know, you're thinking what sounds so special about all of that? But that's just it! There really wasn't anything overly special or exciting about it, it was just a normal Sunday for us. But, I was somewhat surprised when I realized what a wonderful time I have with my family, even when it's just a 'normal' day. It's times like these when I'm so thankful for everything (or everybody, rather), that God has given to me.
So there you have it. Our wonderful day! Not sure what the point of this post was supposed to be---just me typing out my thoughts, I guess!
Oh by the way, an ear update: I felt a whole lot better today, although I'm still having to consume the caffeine to keep myself awake. I can't tell if the medication is helping my hearing yet or not...I guess it's still a little soon for that!
