Here's news that will surprise no one: It's kind of exhausting to keep a baby entertained for hours at a time. S was working last night - so, it was MY job to find ways to occupy Diana. As it turns out - she thinks I am kind of funny:
How could I be in a bad mood when I hear THAT?
Today, I am grateful for:
- Baby Giggles
- Beautiful weather that lets us go for walks every day
- Physical therapy that makes me capable of going for walks
- Pay day (Woo hoo!)
- Friends coming to dinner tonight
Dear God, thank You for a happy, healthy baby - I know it's cliche, but I swear I don't take it for granted. I am also digging on this weather and having my knee on the mend - getting out and enjoying Your sunshine and handiwork. Also, thank You for giving my family the resources to make ends meet and prepare for our next step to buy a new home in the next year. Finally, I want to thank you for the support and encouragement from my friends - I remember a time where I didn't feel like I had any allies left in the whole world, and now, You've seen fit to surround me with love and kinship. Thank You for these many blessings - and all of the others I didn't list specifically. Please show me if I can be of service to You and Your kids today. Amen.
