Life Today.

Outside my window… sunshine!  But it is still pretty cold today.

I am thinking…
about the Muller family.  We heard on Friday that Dean Muller was traveling in a car with his three kids and they were hit by a train.  Dean was killed and two of the kids have non-threatening injuries but the youngest is in a coma and potentially brain dead.  Everyone has been praying hard and the last update I heard was that Maison responded to touch yesterday.  It is hard to stop thinking about.

I am thankful for…
my family.  Events such as the above really put life into perspective.  Too often I take my loved ones’ presence for granted.  Too often I am not “in the moment”.  I don’t want to waste my life and the time that I have with my family.

From the kitchen…
clean!  No class at church this morning so I cleaned my house during that time instead.  Much nicer to come home to!

I am creating… another list of all the things I would like to sew very soon.  It has  been a while since I’ve sewn anything and last night I came across a new-to-me craft blog that inspired me!  Soon…

I am going…
to finish Chapter 5 of One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp today.

I am hoping… to go to the AHEA Conference this April.  Though I am not homeschooling this year, Sally Clarkson (author of the Ministry of Motherhood and the Mission of Motherhood) will be speaking and I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about her.

I am hearing… one of Ezra’s noisy musical toys in my head.  Other than that, it is quiet right now.  Eva is looking through a book and Ezra is quietly eating some apples.

Around the house… all is quiet.  Peter and Ezra are napping and Eva and I are downstairs watching a movie.

One of my favorite things… when Eva tells me she thinks I’m the best mommy in the whole world, and gives me a hug and a kiss like she did last night and again today.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
– editing
– hopefully Moms & Tots on Wednesday… our cars are being a bit funky, so hopefully they are fixed by then
– maybe a trip to Market Mall tomorrow

Here is picture for thought I am sharing:
Mozart watching “Milo & Otis”.
