Our nightly lullaby is Silent Night. It amazes me that they still ask me to sing it, I sing like a frog. Yet they do. They are certainly to the age where they can tell that I can't sing. However, they accept my voice. Reminds me of when Caleb was born... when he was being weighed he started crying. The moment I spoke to him from across the room, he fell silent to listen to my voice. He knew my voice, he knew I was his mommy, and he loved me already. There are so many simple things that make being a mom the most amazing experience.

I just wanted to share 2 verses.
29. That men preach and set themselves up for a light unto the world, that they may get gain and praise of the world; but they seek not the welfare of Zion.
30. Behold, the Lord hath forbidden this thing; wherefore, the Lord God hath given a commandment that all men should have charity, which charity is love. And except they should have charity they were nothing.

I saw a hummingbird. I put the feeder up 4 months ago. Looked almost daily. Today was my first sighting. Happy.
Gracie wore white capris with a white ruffled shirt and a sparkly head band. If you have ever seen a little girl in all white, you know why this is note worthy :)
Was forgiven by a friend (hopefully).
Got to read some more of a book I’m loving.
Was able to be home to get Grace off the bus.
Texted with a friend that makes me smile. 10 minutes is better than none. :)
Got a sweet kiss from Caleb. He loves me.
Have a clean kitchen.

Today I made a meal that I love. It just happens to take a couple (or a few!) hours to make. While I was spending that time in the kitchen, my mind seemed to be overwhelmed with some thoughts.
Heavenly Father was aware of me, before I was aware of Him.
I have many many examples of this, but one in specific has stood out today.
My sister and I were both blessed with amazing college roomates. When I say amazing, what I really mean is AH-MAZ-ING. We were both blessed with someone who supported us, helped us to grow, helped to shape our identity, make us who we now are, gave our lives stability, and will be life long friends.
I've tried to write an explanation of why I feel this way, but my words just don't do it justice. so for now, I will simply record that fact: Heavenly Father blessed us with who we needed at that time in our lives. And while I am understandably closer to my roommate then Gena is (and vise-versa), I know that we love each others roommates dearly.
Have you ever loved someone, simply because of something you know about them? Because of something they have done for someone you love? I am so grateful for Gena's roommate. I love her dearly, simply because of who she has been and is in my sisters life. You can't always be there 100% for the people you love, but you can be grateful for others that you know are there at times that you aren't. Thank you, Leslie. I do love you!! :) And I love that I know that because my sister loves me so much, she feels the same about Ashley.
Someday, our roommates will have to meet. And the awesome thing is that I know that they will love eachother. Not only because they are both awesome girls, but because they love us.
