Slow Times

I have not felt like blogging lately.  It’s been a frustrating few weeks, and I just don’t feel like the rest of the world needs to hear my every frustration, but hopefully in a few weeks things will be different. 

This morning I awoke to a crying toddler.  She had a fever.  She snuggled up to me most of the morning. Slept part of the morning in her crib followed by sleeping on my chest for the rest of the morning.  Then I gave her some motrin and she perked up for approximately five hours.  Though she was sick, she was an absolute delight.

I sent Alex off to school. There’s a long story to that, which I will explain at a later time.  He had a good day at school.  He really likes his teachers.  He has moved to an older class and they have a lot of stimulation for him.  I think a lot of it is above his head, but he is also maturing a lot too. 

Kristiana went to bed early and I baked cookies and spent a little one-on-one time with Alex.  When I put him to bed, I prayed with him and realized it was only the second time today I prayed.  It made those prayers all the more special.

I am hoping to have a holier day tomorrow.  Maybe I will find my groove—a groove I can share in the blogging world.

I hope Kristiana gets to feeling better and I hope you get your groove back too.

I HEAR you about prayer and grooves.. sometimes I feel like I have never been in a groove. The there are weeks where we're really good about prayers and I totally notice when we forget to say them. Our whole day is different.

You're in our prayers--as often as we remember to say them! :S And if thoughts count as prayers (and I think they do) then you're always in our prayers!
