This crazy week involved a few deadlines for me, two late work nights for Ben, shingles for Soul, some Spurs wins and losses, and a major craigslist score. There was good crazy and bad crazy all day, every day.
This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness…
Soulie loves her older sisters a lot, but she often doesn’t know how to show that love when they’re around!
If I don’t write a daily to-do list, I don’t get much done.
True graduated her swim level and she moved on up! I’m so glad these girls are learning how to swim properly and pool safety.
This strawberry cream tart looks ah-mazing and I want to make it soon!
Thankful for friends who keep an eye out for things I am looking for on Craigslist. Thanks O!
So happy the BFF is on summer break that means beach trip days are coming! Woot! Woot!
The post about “The Good Mom” my friend (and pastor) PJ shared with me (and a few other gals) was a good reminder that my heart needed. I love this statement he made… “Your “success” as a mom is not measured by your capacity to keep everything in order; it’s determined by your ability to trust that even in the chaos, Jesus is beautiful – and even in the mess, so are you.” It goes on to say, “In the end your kids care far less about how presentable their dinner is and far more about how healthy their mom is.” That is all so true. I definitely struggle with all of that! I easily find my satisfaction and joy in making sure my girls are well-behaved, know responsibility and rules, and have everything neat and tidy and when it isn’t, I’m pretty much all out of sorts. This post reminded of how I really need to readjust my ideas of motherhood and fix my eyes on the cross more.
