the cat has had my tongue a little while. just saying i am fully aware i haven’t been here much. i thought i would make a come-back today.
i did have a half-way fabulous labor day and i hope you did too. i spent half the day laboring as i cleaned the house again. but it felt great devoting the rest of the day preparing a fancy dinner. i let out my inner barefoot contessa and rocked it pretty hard in the kitchen. the part of the un-fabulous side of labor day was that I was the only adult at the table enjoying all that. i mean i made risotto!
and i made a blueberry crisp from a book im devouring right now Bread and Wine. it was yummy and a healthy moms dream dessert.
so earlier my mister hinted around that he was doing something to surprise the kids. i like surprises so i didn’t ask. just went on with my plans building a throne to be seated on and hailed as the queen mother. i had intentions clearly that we would gather around the table for dinner.
after a few hours of hesitating to ask, i prodded. I’ll be home in 45 min turned into two hours+ 45 min.
short story, trent came home with two new toys…jet skis. as you can probably guess, that outweighed the attention of dinner so it was left on the stove to be microwaved at everyone’s discression. how could i make them sit down and eat with all that anticipated fun sitting outside.
nothing makes me happier than seeing my kids happy. i’m grateful i married a man that is a smile maker. at my expense, my heart smiled.
all joking aside, everything we do should be aimed at making our Creator smile. i know that when my heart is in serving my family, my true bulls-eye is the heart of my Father. it all goes hand-in-hand. i don’t get put out of place when things don’t go my way because i have a tight grip on this little helper…
