I love participating in InstaFriday over at Life Rearranged because I love looking back over the week at the little things...those fleeting moments that so easily get forgotten about in the daily huzza of our lives.
If you've been keeping up with this blog, you know this past week has been a little bit of a roller coaster ride. But, I'm refusing to let some scary news stifle the joy found in the every day. Every moment we can choose to see and experience the good gifts from God. It takes some practice (and lots of it!) but you can do it.
Be still my heart....I just love watching my hubby with his baby girl. It is the sweetest. =)
Puffy clouds and blue skies are a happy sight after SO much rain. But hey, I shouldn't complain, our garden is happy, happy!
Last Friday we attended my friend's graduation. And I felt like such an oldie. Ten years before, it was me walking across that platform. Goodness how time flies!
Yard Sale loot from Saturday...
2-1/2 gallon mason jars (one was a wide mouth and I've never seen a 1/2 gallon of those!)
trifle dish (been wanting one for a looong time)
old Navy winter coat (for Lucy)
little boy tie
little boy dress shoes
Fiskars oval punch
We R Memory Keepers Punch tool (sets eyelets and punches holes in thin metal, leather, fabric, paper, etc.)
box of eyelets (unopened)
super pretty pad of paper (only 2 sheets missing and a 19.99 price tag!)
Total: $10 !!!!
I seriously couldn't believe this blanket, it is SO pretty. It's not often that I've seen granny squares so large before. Tried not to act so surprised when they said they only wanted a $1 for it! =)
These two are quickly becoming besties. =) When Lucy was born, Levi was not himself for a while. He even kept asking if I bought her at a yard sale! He always screamed when she cried and was very unsure about the little intruder!
But as she's grown, he has begun to adore her. Of course they can fuss and fight, typical brother and sister, but lately I've seen more and more how much these two like to be together.
Levi is not a "hand holder." He never has been. So when he reached out at the beginning of our walk to hold Lucy's hand, I was surprised. They didn't let go the entire time. And he even picked her a flower. =)
I love watching the friendships blossom between our children, it is truly a special thing!
Our friend Li came over to mess up my kitchen and cook us some authentic Brazilian food. It was amazing!
Well, friends, thank you again for your kindness and for praying for me. Monday seems like forever away! I look forward to having that appointment over with and getting some answers.
Have a great weekend and I hope you have a wonderful time celebrating all the mothers in your life! =)
