3 weeks and counting...

Wow how time flies when you're having fun being mommy of three...

Many of you have been asking for an update...and I must admit, it is just a little harder to sit down with my computer these days. :o) 
Instead, I am sitting down with Levi to read a tractor book...or sitting down with Ella to work on writing her name...or sitting down with Amelia to fill her little tummy with food and her mind with sweet singing. I am even sitting down with my husband on the couch to talk about our day or just look dreamily into each others eyes. (the highlight of my day!)
And each of these things wins if I have to chose between them or my computer.  It is not a hard choice. :o)

Amelia turned 3 weeks on Wednesday and the time is going too fast.  I am enveloped in play times, midnight feedings, paying bills, doing laundry, baking cookies and making forts.  And it is all wonderful.  I am feeling good physically and thank the Lord for a quick recovery.  Each day seems to get a little better.

Much of my fast recovery is thanks to my wonderful S.I.L who continues to bless me with opportunities to nap, hot meals and folding of my laundry (just to name a few).  Although you've heard me say it, hear it again, I could not be doing this without her.  Thank you Tarah. 

As I grow a little stronger and feel a little better every day, I am excited to implement some of the things I learned during my period of "bedresting"...things like managing my mornings, continuing to work on my reading list (remember, just 15 minutes a day...), and staying on task with my list of goals for 2010.  

I thank the Lord for His sustaining grace during my time away from my family and now again, for the strength He continues to provide as I am slowly reassuming the role of wife to a fabulous husband, mother to three sweet children, friend to countless giving people and homemaker and manager of the home the Lord has given us. 

I have much to be thankful for.  Praying you are thankful today too.

Thrilled to see an update and totally supportive of your order of priorities....but I'll need to adjust to having weekly updates instead of daily. ;) You spoiled us.

Keep up the good work and I'm pleased that you're feeling better all the time. Your family is blessed to have you!

Seeing JJ's 3 and 2 other grandchilren for awhile today...yippee!
