The Simple Woman's Daybook
For Today, March 5, 2013...
Outside my window...the sun has gone down on another hot South Florida day. I can't believe how much the weather has changed from one day to the next.
I am thinking...of my daughter's impending surgery. Her wisdom teeth are coming out tomorrow.
I am thankful for...the opportunity to volunteer at our old church.
I am going...to take a Benadryl because my allergies are acting up.
I am wearing...a yellow top, jeans, and socks. It was 51 degrees when I went out this morning. It got up to 75 by the afternoon.
I am noticing...that the temperatures have been going up and down like a roller coaster, and the next few days is going to be much of the same.
In the kitchen...I made spare ribs in the oven, with baked beans, corn on the cob and salad. One of my daughter's favorite meals. She won't be eating solids for the next few days, so I thought this would be nice for her.
I am reading...very little right now because I've been so busy.
I am hoping...the surgery goes well and recovery is quick and as painless as possible.
I am looking forward to...Easter week at the end of this month.
I am hearing...my son doing his homework and asking me an occasional question.
Around the house...I got a couple of loads of laundry done today and did a major cleaning of the kid's rooms yesterday, since I'll be busy with my daughter all day tomorrow.
A favorite quote of the day...“You must gain control over your money or the lack of it will forever control you.” ― Dave Ramsey
One of my favorite things...an evening at home with my kids nearby.
A few plans for the rest of the week...I'm taking my daughter to have her surgery tomorrow, and the rest of the week will depend on how she's feeling. I get to be mommy and nurse to my little girl. All prayers for her safety and rapid recovery are greatly appreciated.
I'm first and foremost a Bible believing Christian. I'm a mother of 3, learning to deal with the changes God is doing in my life, learning to lean on Him and trust Him even when I don't understand, and learning to accept the changes He sees fit to accomplish His purpose in my life.
"I can't imagine anything more terrible than getting to the end of my life only to discover that God had so much more in mind for me - more freedom, more joy, more peace, more true effectiveness. And I had missed it all, simply because I refused to change." - Joanna Weaver, Having a Mary Spirit.
"In every change He faithful will remain." - Katharina von Schlegel
"Nothing paralyzes our lives like the attitude that things can never change. We need to remind ourselves that God can change things. Outlook determines outcome. If we see only the problems, we will be defeated; but if we see the possibilities in the problems, we can have victory." - Warren Wiersbe
