My Week in Review

Filled With Praise

I tried to post on Thursday but since Blogger was down...I couldn't, then I got busy and forgot to do anything this link up is perfect to end to the week!

Mother's Day was awesome this year!  I had one more little person to celebrate with!  The day was so wonderful and just made me realize even more how much I am blessed by my little family and how much I love each and every one of them.  We dedicated Lucy at church in the morning, ate outside for lunch and had great friends over for dinner that night.  In the in between time, we cleaned the house.  I know some of you are gagging at the fact I cleaned on Mother's Day, but trust me, our house needed it and it felt awesome to have Eric's help!  Plus, with small group here on Tuesday's, I didn't have a lot to do to get ready before everyone came over.  

Another high was the weather!  Not so much today or the next couple of days...but Thursday was a beautiful day and I love having the windows open!  We now have the heat back on, but it was nice while it lasted!

Two highs for Eric would be...Lucy is now saying da-da, and over the last month or so Eric has been overhauling all of our yard and landscaping.  I can now say we are no longer the ugliest house on the block!  We have completely changed everything in our yard and it looks awesome!  Eric is such a hard worker and I am so proud of him and all the work he does by taking care of our family and house.  

If you read my post on Monday about gaining back some weight, I would say that was a big low for me this week.  Another low is time management.  I feel awful at it!  I know some of it is the season of life I am in right now, but I always feel behind, or like I forgot something.  So that's a constant battle.

{Lesson Learned}
I would say lesson learned this week is extending grace.  We are going through some situations as a family, and as a church, and we are learning and relearning to extend grace, constantly.  It's tough because sometimes you don't want to, well, at least I don't, but I know God wants me to, and God extends it to me on a daily, sometimes hourly basis.  So although it's been tough, it's also been rewarding.

I am so glad you had a great Mother's Day. I know exactly what you mean about the clean house feeling. :)

I truly appreciate your lesson learned. I am learning that myself.
