In spite of a still-frozen body of water outside my windows and the twelve inches of snow in my front yard, it is officialy spring and I say praise God for that! Since my brain and my life are functioning in a highly list-oriented world. I thought I would share a list today in this spot, in addition to the many lists of favorites to the right of this blog.
Some things we learned in this family this week:
1. A full night of sleep is precious and not to be taken for granted!
This week, many nights were interrupted by either a little one in tears (even though I told him we are well past that stage, he wanted to revisit it for three nights :0)and pager (and an ER) on a rampage.
2. My nine year-old is smarter than me (okay - this is not really news).
This week, when he finished reading the book of Revelation, he said he had a couple of questions. I said, "Just a couple?" ;0) After two conversations (one with me and one with another person much smarter than me) he was satisfied. that's all it took. Go figure.
3. Some songs still bring me to tears.
The first song on this blog's playlist is a perfect example. I think I'll pick her voice to be what I will sound like in heaven! :0) I do get to pick, right?! Another is Agnes Dei (by Michael W. Smith, but it was a congregational song on Sunday and I couldn't make it through the whole thing.) This is what it will be like singing in heaven, I am sure of it! Another one that gets me, is Voice of Truth. I always liked it, but the other night, my litle reader of Revelation told me it is one of his favorite songs. Then, the next day we sang it at AWANA. It turned me into a puddle to see him sing it with all his heart. That song will never be the same for me.
4. I still really like my husband!
Sometimes I still feel like a teenager, just falling in love with him. Monday night I watched a good movie and it hit me about fifteen minutes into it that I hated to have any sort of fun without him, even if it was simply enjoying a movie I knew he would like! (go ahead, you can call me a sap, I can take it!)
5. Things change.
Whether it is seasons or socks, where we live or what we wear, change is a big part of our daily lives. My daughter has mastered (okay - about 90% of the time) the art of putting her shoes on the right feet. My little one now can, and alway wants to, use silverware. My first grader can read more words today than he could yesterday. New friends move away. Ice and snow melt away (hallelujah!). Now, let's hope my winter waistline will do the same!
