I am happy to welcome some new followers to the posse, you have no idea how happy it makes me to see new followers joining the gang so thank you. It is strange sometimes where you can get inspiration or focus from, today my motivation came from the Sunday School message we were teaching. The story was Luke 10 38-42 where Jesus visits Martha and Mary, Martha is too busy in preparing the home, making food and her guest comfortable where as Mary had prioritized sitting and listening to Jesus. As I was discussing this with 5th and 6th graders (age 10-12 for my non American friends) I became aware that I was Martha. I get swept along in life and don’t prioritize right it was a sort of epiphany. I need to take better care of doing things I enjoy and that’s this blog and you. I can not promise how often but I want you to know your appreciated more than you know.
Life here is busy we have been skiing which if you follow me on Instagram (if not why not?) you would already know. We are getting geared up for my brothers wedding in London soon and are taking a vacation either side. That is beyond exciting. My parents have been for a visit which was super fun, they were beyond helpful with the garden (hope to share on the blog or in a vlog soon.) They had fantastic weather and even got to use the pool, not sure the UK will be so generous to us when we return next month. Gertie turned one, my baby is growing up, she is not eating quite so many knickers which is a blessing, but she is a joy to our family. Although I wish she would stop barking at the pool flamingo floatie.
Little L is growing up too fast, she got into a great school near us and she starts Pre-K in August, I am beyond proud but she can be challenging. I blame her father – lol. She is an independent bundle of fun, she has moved into a big girl bed and I have changed her room a little (blog post soon!)
I am finally getting the house together although there is always things to add, it is a bottomless pit and it keeps me pretty busy. I recently changed my car and I am getting used to that, it is amazing how quickly things change and you forget. I couldn’t end today without mentioning the state of the world, it has been preoccupying my thoughts a great deal. We learn nothing from history and I am praying for peace.
I am challenging myself today to pick up the camera and start a weekly vlog, so watch this space, as ever I love to hear from you all so contact me.
Ta ta for now
