For Today... Monday, March 16 2009

Outside my window..Sunshine and blue skies- temps heading into the 60's today- that is a major heat wave for us!

I am thinking... how fast our daughter's senior year in high school is going--she's the youngest of six--how have these eighteen years gone by so quickly? Hug your babies ladies--it really is true that you turn around and they are grown.

I am thankful for...celebrating Amanda's eighteenth birthday this week! What a blessing she is to our family. Before she was born, the doctor warned us that she may not be healthy--but, praise God, she was fine!
I am also so thankful for the group of friends that Amanda has. Such great kids! They build each other up and encourage one another- allowing each to just be themselves and be real. Most of them also love the Lord- and that has made the difference.
Over 20 kids threw a surprise birthday party for Amanda Saturday night. She was delighted!:)

From the kitchen...tidying up needed since I was not feeling well most of the weekend.

I am wearing... pajamas- love my pj's in the morning:)

I am reading...starting a book titled "Pursuing Godliness"a study of I Timothy by Elizabeth George. I had forgotten that I had this book! Came across it Saturday when I was sorting. I bought it at a women's conference that Elizabeth spoke at several years ago.

I am hoping...that our family can get together soon. So many circumstances have kept us apart this winter- weather not being the least.

I am creating...hopefully some homemade cards this week.

I am hearing...a siren going down the highway. I always try to pray for whoever is having an emergency and needs that help right now.

Around the house... I have made some progress on sorting and purging. More needed...
I am also researching some new recipes.

One of my favorite things...when the grass starts greening up in the spring.

A few plans for the rest of the week...getting ready to celebrate Amanda's birthday.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...
This is our birthday girl! Happy 18th Amanda!! We love you:)

What a pretty girl your daughter is! Happy birthday to her. My girls are 32, 19, and 15. Our oldest has a girl with a March birthday, a boy with an October birthday, and another girl who will be born this month - another March baby. :)

There must be a mistake. Amanda CAN NOT be 18. She was just 12 and in 6th grade last year, right? Are you sure you are counting the years correctly? Because if she is indeed 18, that means it has been 6 years since I taught her. And I just cannot accept that much time has passed . . .
