It was the week After...
The week After a lot of things... a lot of driving, sight-seeing, exploring... a lot of vacationing and fun... a lot of fullness and family and laughter... a lot of noise and busy and rush.
So last week, I was looking forward to the fall-back-into-routine parts... the quiet empty Monday morning, the return of my Happy Intercessors on Tuesday... the slow rhythm of laundry and vacuuming, writing and posting, list-making and picture-taking... but I felt like what I really needed was more sleep... less busy... and more - way more - coffee!
I also noticed that last week - I fell out of the daily habit of Counting... and (I know you won't be surprised) I found once I returned to THAT routine - well... things got much better!
So here are a few things from my list last week:
3 Gifts Waited for:
#1074. Meeting my Great Nephew Ethan Conner
#1075. Breakthrough in Weight Loss Plateau
#1076. Coffee to finish brewing
#1078. Playing with Great Niece & Nephew in the mornings when the rest of the house was sleeping!
3 Gifts Rising Up:
#1079. My Resolve - to get back on track with healthy eating and regular exercising.
#1080. Hope for Change
#1081. My fam - up and out on a Monday morning.
#1088. A Bright Sunshiney Day
#1091. Family serving side by side, Feeding 5,000 for Children of the Nations - assembling meals to be shipped all over the world.
#1092. My girlie - with a FULL day of responsibilities - stepping up (and still finding time to hang with the fam' in between work shifts and DECA work and friends!)
#1094. Date night with my Honey

#1099. Mom turning 71 today...
#1100. ...and living right next door so we could celebrate!

#1103. Waking up, still in bed... with praises on your lips! Best way to start the day!
Speak Life. Be Love. Shine On.
I had planned on linking up with Ann this morning - instead, I am posting here... and linking with her in prayer for Boston!
