Multitude Monday

Today has been such that I am now in the middle of making dinner, reminding children to clean up and typing my blessings all at once! God is so good, though - the effort is worth it!
  • hearing the baby's heartbeat - nice and strong!
  • getting to know the other parents whose children swim with mine
  • retelling the amazing stories of God's faithfulness in the lives of our Care Group members, and even how He has preserved past generations
  • a helpful homeschool review with one of my favorite people
  • a fun Keepers at Home meeting, where my girls got to learn how to decoupage - and not in my house!
  • taking Abi and Anna to a baby shower and seeing them learn to love serving others
  • joining up to a new Bible study of Proverbs
  • seeing lots of things crossed off my to-do list!
  • playing Bananagrams with the girls
  • reading stories with a snuggly boy

Multitude Mondays

It's been a couple of weeks since I've had the mental capacity to do more than dress myself and feed my family (and not always in that order). So, in the past couple of weeks, some of my multitudinous blessings have included:
  • Toby having an enjoyable and safe trip to the UK to visit family
  • watching movies with my kids
  • getting up to speed with House on Hulu in the comfort of my bed
  • other than a single sick kid one morning, the rest of the family remained healthy
  • a snuggly morning where Dan joined me in bed and went back to sleep for an hour
  • taking the kids to spend some Christmas money on fun craft projects
  • finishing The Trumpet of the Swan together and enjoying the children enjoy the story
  • everyone pitching in to get chores done together
  • the hours they spend playing Lego and creating
  • Toby's safe return!
  • praying together
  • roast chicken
  • the new season of the BBC's Sherlock
