A Breath Of Fresh Air


Moms - Moms - Have you ever had one of those days where you happened to wake up on the wrong side of the bed? And not just on the wrong side of the bed, you wake up on the wrong side of the bed with PMS - and not just with PMS, but PMS at the very worst you ever had and as you look out the window you realize it has to be at least 3 more hours before the sun rises.

One of those mornings where you know darn well you are blessed beyond words but you are grumpy as all get out - and you happen to be on your way to church. Ugh! God gives you so much to be thankful for but all you can do is sulk and pout about how your head hurts, the coffee doesn't taste right, there is not enough chocolate in the house, the kids are acting like hooligans, your clothes (for obvious reasons) don't fit right, there is no time to curl your hair, the kids have dug their fingernails in your favorite eyeshadow, your husband has dodged off to "hide" in the bathroom, and the dogs are jumping up on the table eating the breakfast that you (or your husband) has just made?

I for one have never had one of those days but just in case you ladies have, I decided to post this - A Breath Of Fresh Air.

My little Paloma simply takes my breath away. I catch a glimpse of her and think she is absolutely stunning. It is in the brief moment in time, as a I grab my camera, that I am reminded of what I truly have to be thankful for. God may not have given me enough hours in the morning to get ready for church but He gave me two stunning little girls to which I am eternally grateful.

Just a little something to think about.....

And what wonderful girls they are! I was so glad to have them here and to get to know them all over again! Mattea is so bright and polite and Paloma is just too darn cute--especially when she's fussing over her baby cousin, Landon! miss you guys
