The List

Making- a third child
Cooking- chicken thighs, brown rice, and roasted carrot sticks
Drinking- water, black coffee, and dark chocolate almond milk
Wanting- ENERGY
Looking- at Honda Odysseys and wishing and believing and hoping
Playing- in Yahweh's awesome creation called nature
Wishing- I spoke softer and kinder to my poor girls right now. Sometimes the pregnancy hormones and their neediness just equals explosion. I've had to repent to them twice today. And one time was on the kitchen floor cleaning up a huge egg yolk mess the 5 year old made while I was teaching her to cook something. On the floor, cleaning with a rag, crying and apologizing for snapping and losing it. It's crazy, folks. I WILL CONQUER HORMONES!! If you know me, I never cry and I can handle my emotions well and I'm a very positive person, this short-fuse is not cool with me! As I said, I'm walking it out relying on Yahweh heavier than ever and through Him I'll be stronger than these hormones!



Enjoying- lime green grass and the blooming trees and flowers EVERYWHERE!
Waiting- Not really waiting on anything! (obvs the baby but I'm in no rush)
Liking- being married to Kevin.
Wondering- how I'm going to make 3 kids clothes and equipment and beds fit in that one small room...
Loving- this stage of life I'm in. It's seriously the sweetest. My days are filled with getting to do WHATEVER I want and getting to do it with two of my biggest fans. I get to be the one to teach and nurture and love my children. I get to stay home and teach Ruby sight words and how butter is made. I get to tell Nora how she was born in the living room and looked just like Daddy when we first saw her. I'm so thankful my days are set at whatever pace I choose to set it at. I LOVE my life and for that I'm sincerely and so deeply grateful to my King.
Hoping- Kevin's little brother heals completely from his knee surgery this morning and for peace for another family member of mine that very much needs it right now.
Marveling- at the Father's goodness. Kevin and I have been talking about how thankful we are that we just click. We go through hard stuff together but never have we been each other's problem, and I'm so thankful that Yahweh chose us to get each other. 
Needing- a house keeper!




Smelling- the great outdoors on my kid's skin
Wearing- workout clothes for the first time in forever because I actually ran some hills and did lunges today. (here's where you can say a quick prayer for my legs tomorrow!)
Noticing- how dirty our house it. it's picked up several times a day and a major pick up at night but CLEANED? Never. I wish. I have no energy for all that. 
Knowing- That Yahweh is who He says He is and HE IS GOOD. He is steady, unwavering, unchanging. He teaches me when I need teaching, comforts me when I need comforting, and kicks my hiney when I need it. He is everything I need and I adore Him.
Thinking- of getting up and making dinner
Bookmarking- if this means what I'm reading then it's 1 Kings about King Soloman
Opening- Reese's Peanut Butter cup miniatures. I will never buy them anymore BUT someone gave me a bag of them and to reject a gift is to reject the giver... (I've had a thousand)
Feeling- not my greatest but not my worst. I'm tired and HAPPY. Thankful and humbled to be doing this for a third time. To get to be His daughter, his wife and their mama. I'm just so, so thankful.
