Outside my window…the beautiful sunshine is glistening off of the freshly fallen snow.

I am thinking...of spring.
I am thankful for...our new home.

From the kitchen...will be Split Pea Soup, but considering copying my mother-in-law and making Spicy Cheeseburger Soup.

I am wearing...many layers of emotions.

I am remembering...playing in the snow as a child. Flossie and I would attempt to build forts, but they never worked. We always slept better after those snow fort building days.

I am going...to stay home and attempt to stay warm.

I am reading...Overcoming Depression, by Neil and JoAnne Anderson.

I am praying…for my children, and wisdom in raising them.

On my mind…a list of things I need to get done. Actually "want" to get done.

I am hearing...the sound machine through the baby monitor from Asher's room. It's playing the sound he heard in the womb. It's becoming very annoying. :o) He seems to enjoy it though. I'm also hearing Abner practice his guitar.

Around the house...there are no more signs of Christmas decorations, but empty spots waiting for Valentines decor.

Noticing that…my family's mood always reflects mine.

Pondering these words…
"A GOOD name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold." Proverbs 22:1

One of my favorite things...is to be home alone.

A picture thought… Missing my mom today, and loving that my baby boy looks a little bit like me. He's the first person I've ever been able to say that about.

How true that our families mood reflect ours. I've learned I shouldn't give in to the luxury of having a bad day, because that bad day almost always ends up even worse when my family starts reacting to my attitude.

Love the picture of you and your mom.

Love you!
