Not too sure i got that all!!

I didn't mention answering over 100 questions, breaking up fights, phone calls, killing flies, diapers changes, etc. I do love my life.....I promise!!! But i could not fully enjoy it w/out God's grace and strength being poured into me daily. I ask Him for that often throughout my days and He faithfully provides! I strive to honor Him with my life and how i handle things. It's harder on days with less sleep and more to do.

My mom is giving Rod and I a date night tomorrow night, and we're so looking forward to that!! We didn't get to talk much today!

still would like to read a bit then fall asleep! I know i'm not the only one with a busy (but full) life, blessings to you all too!

That made me tired just reading it :) We are going camping this weekend and one reason I love that is because it slows life down and lets me focus on the kids and having fun with them. Because on all other days there's toooo much to do! You're doing a great job though! Keep it up!!!
