And, after thinking about that last paragraph, I guess life is like that too. You have the 'extreme' times---marriages, birthdays, new jobs, new babies, new houses....whatever. But then, you have the 'in between' times, where life goes on, day by day. And, if you don't watch, it can become 'blah'. You can simply miss the beauty that God has placed there in the 'every day'. The daily school work....the house cleaning....the cooking...the child care.....the beauty is all there. I just need to be aware.
And so, here is what we are looking at to brighten up our 'in between days'....until those beautiful, warm, gorgeous days of June welcome us once again....
Looked outside today while the kids were playing and saw this:
Yes, she's carrying a rainbow umbrella. No, it was not raining. I guess she's trying to chase away the February 'blahs' too :)
Can you guess what Eli is learning about this week? We had so much fun making this together this morning!
You just KNOW I must be chasing away the 'blahs' of February and bringing in some joy when I do something 'creative' :) I am NOT a 'crafty' person. So a Valentine table set with little hearts was pushing it for me ;)
And lastly, who wouldn't feel better with warm, chewy oatmeal raisin cookies?
