Thanking God for…

::2 months of a goal met (more on that later)
::new finger nail polish
Looking out my window…
I’m writing this Sunday night while Leo sleeps and Bernadette watches a movie. Chris and the rest of the kids get back tomorrow from a camping trip to the land. So the short answer is…it’s dark. I can only see my reflection in the window.
I am praying…
As always girls, for my children and husband; I have an intention really close to my heart. And I’m praying for you all! I sent the word out on the Suscipio Facebook page, do we want to make another Prayer Calendar for the month of September? It’s ok if it’s a day late, I’ll take the 1st so nobody misses out.
I am pondering…
I’m pondering how parenting teens looks…while I’m still parenting toddlers and in betweeners. It’s hard to switch gears and mindsets and “techniques” so many times–not that I use “techniques” but you know what I mean. Reminding my older children of their responsibilities looks different than reminding my younger, etc.
I’m pondering some plans God seems to be placing in my heart and how those work with and around my primary vocation.
I am reading…
May the Lord give you increase, you and your children! May you be blessed by the Lord who made heaven and earth.
We pray not to find self-fulfillment or self-satisfaction, but to please God.
–Time for God
On Taking Holy Water
Cleanse me, O Lord, from my sins in the name † of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
When the Clock Strikes
O dear Jesus, may I do all for Thy Love!
At the Sight of the Crucifix
I thank Thee, O Jesus, for all Thy love! I am sorry for all my sins.
At the Sight of a Picture of a Saint
Pray for me, O happy saint! When shall I be with thee in heaven?
I am creating…
I am creating all sorts of things in my over active mind! I am still very slowly plugging away at Chris Granny Square blanket…maybe Christmas instead of anniversary?
I am learning to listen to God before I ask or speak…because surprisingly, He doesn’t want me talking all the time…I Know!
In the kitchen…
With Chris and most of the kids gone for the weekend, Bernadette, Leo and I had some very relaxed (and naughty) eating habits. I don’t feel so good…go figure. Thankfully the naughty binge was short lived and we can get back to some routine meals and eating habits. I did find a new like this weekend, Hansen’s Huberts Cherry Limeade. It’s yummy and my Walmart carries it.
Around the house…
It’s amazing how infrequently the trash needs to be taken out and the laundry run when 6 of the 9 people who live here are camping. Yes, I am fully aware they will bring home more than I can imagine.
I’m really working hard to sound nice and kind as I (constantly) remind children (toddler to teen) to pick up after themselves.
I’m in my pajammies–turquoise capris & floral shirt.

I am looking forward to…
I’m looking forward to everyone being back home. I’m looking forward to week 2 of school. And I’m looking forward to sharing with you all a great resource I found to set some clear goals and REACH them!
One of my favorite things…
Sharing the “good” meaning the expensive super duper flavored ice cream with Bernadette and Leo.
The week ahead…
school, soccer practice, piano, blogging, living a joy filled life…sounds pretty good huh?
