To Pray

d42902a7a6136d67e8f719f9d6a4a478I see all the hurt that is out there and I can’t take it. It upsets me, regardless if it should or not. I don’t like that a lot of the pain and suffering is from things that are self-induced or brought on senselessly by other people.

I have tried really hard to think that maybe that person is going through something I don’t know about. That is why they are acting the way they are.  I know that it makes me feel better to walk away when I think of it that way.

I am not perfect. Lord knows that. I am trying to be a better version of myself daily. I have three daughters that look up to me. I also do a lot of things with and for others. I want them to be proud that they are associated with me. I want them to think of me as a positive person who always tried to do what was best. Hurting someone for a quick sense of  gratification is not going to get me that.

Let us all take a moment to really think about how we can be a better person to those around us. I have made up my mind to pray more. I mean to really stop and pray more. When I see people hurting, when I see hate, or whenever I am called to do it. I am not going to say “I’ll pray for you,” and then never do it or remember to do it. I am going to take a moment right then and there to really pray for them. It won’t cost me anything but a minute or two of my time. Time well spent if you ask me.

We can all do it. Something to better ourselves, and those around us. What will you be doing?

March Reflection

March was a month that was good. I can’t really complain as I do some reflection. It wasn’t one that completely stands out, but there sure were some good days!

Ryley finished up her tutoring and I can completely say with confidence that this program put on by some of the teachers was a success for my child. She gained confidence and you can tell that in her work. She actually shares her papers with us and wants to do her work!

Ryley also turned 7. My middle child is 7. Oh this makes my heart hurt for sure.

My middle….

The next week my in-laws came to visit which always is a good time. We experienced a place to eat called the “Waffle King” and of course some of our favorites like The Fort Mitchell Grill. You can never go wrong with a burger from there.

Then the night I had been waiting for – the 4th RTB Ball. I love getting dressed up and being taken out. I even got to dance and I did get to meet new people and enjoy myself. I loved it. We were one of the last ones to leave and we got home before midnight. I can’t wait till next year all ready! (Not really any pictures since I didn’t take my phone so I could really enjoy myself)

The next week I took my youngest and her friend to a movie at the National Infantry Museum. We watched Cinderella on a HUGE screen for free. I like free!

Easter was filled with fun with my sister, niece, and brother-in-law. I love family visits and they always seen to go too fast. We did get to watch my Abby get an award for making the A Honor Roll both the 2nd and 3rd Nine Weeks of School. I am pretty proud to say the least!

The weekend also had Fred & Lester’s Restaurant, grilling out back, and a crab boil. Mmmmmm

Easter dinner!

Soccer started yesterday and should provide some excitement to say the least. I just hope that Ryley scores more than 1 goal to top last year, and Abby remembers that she is not the only kid playing on the team 😉

How was your march?

List 3.20.16

My in-laws just left and I hate that it will be a while until I see them again.

Our internet is awful here. Just say “no” to satellite internet.

My email has so much stinking junk mail. I think I click “unsubscribe” more often than anything.

I had a really great weekend around the house.

Easter is next weekend – crap!

I get to see my niece next weekend and I am super excited.

There are times I feel like I have no clue what I did today, but I know I did something. I have to have done something, right?

My blogging calendar for next month is all done. Who wants to actually right all the content now?

I like taking pictures. I think I need to do more of that.

I want to find a few more virtual runs to complete.

I have all but 1 goal written for next month. I have a weird need to have 5 goals. No more, no less.

I think list posts are my favorite kinds to write.

The following week my kids will be on spring break and I think we are all ready to be not going to school, but doing something fun.

I think that after a year I am starting to figure out this work from home/mom from home thing. I *think*.
