Random pics…Random thoughts…

I’m an emotional goo today. Let’s just be honest and put it out there! Two straight days of less than 4 hours sleep [and its all broken up into hour segments], two days straight of early rising [Jael now wants to get up really early because she has to pee but then doesn’t want to go back to sleep], and some awful news last night which I may or may not share about eventually…I am just at my wits end.

Good thing my husband is off tomorrow and Thursday or I might melt into a tearful puddle!

Could I ask for you to offer up a prayer for me? I’d really appreciate prayers for peace, strength, and [if I have to ;) ] patience. I’m feeling very on the edge …tears at the brim, frustration on the surface… I just have no margin. And I have a heavy feeling in the pit of my stomach.

But as I write this, I am encouraged and comforted that the Lord can and will show Himself to me today ;) That sharing this with you isn’t a pity party, but an opportunity. An opportunity for the Lord to maybe speak through one of you [or many of you!] and honestly, just the fact that y’all’s comments are like virtual hugs and the Lord really uses that on my heart sometimes. :) I am thankful for you guys today and am praying that your days are going/will go well today too.

BUT, since my kids are my little LOVES, sharing pics of them will lighten my mood and cheer me up. ;) So here goes!

My cutie pie little girl — tryin on mama’s shoes ;)

Kiss kiss! ;)

My FOUR month old Hulk baby in the stroller. He takes up more space than my 2 1/2 year old daughter!

Kind of was a little giddy when Aedriel followed me on Twitter. She is the one of the sweetest and most talented people I follow ;)

On the way to church… ;) Feeling pretty ;)

Me and Elijah :) Even though this picture is blurry, I thought it looked kind of cool :)

My mom snuggling with Jael :)

And my favorite…Jael was drawing last night with tub crayons and said, “Mama! Look! I drew Tangled!” Melts my heart!! :)

So there you go…my little guy just woke up chatting away [better than crying awake!], so I’m off into the motherhood fields. Praying God’s presence and peace over all of us today. :)

“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.”
