Today I Love . . .

~ green days for jacob

~ opening the front door to find a sweet friend WITH a homemade apple pie to greet us as well

~ payday

~ hearing about ben's field trip to the zoo

~ a Hallmark gift card & 25% off made my new yankee candle FREE

~ the words from my devotion earlier this week.  they have remained in my mind each day. 
     "that I am yours and that my reason for being is to serve you."
   now if i can only impress them into the boys' hearts & minds

~ after a long day, being asked by jacob "how was your night mommy?

~ smokey soup

~ the smells, feelings, & sights of fall

~ nighttime conversations with the boys

~ being reminded by Ben this morning to pray with them on our way to school

These Boys . . .

Run Ben Run

this is his way of
stretching to warm up
and get ready to run
this is his way
of supporting the runner
runners . . . get ready
can you see them?!
he wouldn't even let JM tie his shoe
he wasn't about to stop running!

even after he "finished"
he kept running
wanting to race Jacob & JM up & down these steps

he takes after his papaw with neverending energy
daddy's going to stay on the look out for more races

This Morning

love the open windows & the chill in the house

hazelnut coffee in hand

preparing for worship

missing my man

loving my family

anticipating more cookie & brownie baking but need cooking oil

still thinking on jonah

wondering what on earth roxie sees in the woods
     (not a deer, cat, etc)

love the good night's sleep
(early to bed)

disliked the crazy weird dreams
