the little things

My day is filled with doing little things...

wiping noses changing diapers fixing hair brushing teeth doing dishes straightening up books and toys that land everywhere tying shoelaces doing load upon load of laundry folding said laundry putting on hats making sandwiches  putting littles down for a nap and on  and on and on.
Sometimes I get tired of the mundane.

I get tired of life right now being so .... regular ... every day seems so the same. I was talking to my sister the other day about it and I said, I wouldn't want to change it, but yet sometimes the mundane gets to me. I get restless. I feel like the hamster running round and round the wheel and it's always the same. {just different friends and playdates}

Today over breakfast while feeding the baby, I listened to a podcast {ahem, part of one}. And this really got to me:


Love well in the little things. With great love Which is part of a very big thing - raising a family!

If I love well in the little things, I help my children become…

hospitality

We've been living in our wonderful new house for almost 5 months now! Crazy! At times, it still doesn't feel real and other times, it seems like our apartment life was FOREVER ago.

Our big wish and prayer for our house was that it would be a place where people would...
... feel at home ... ... be pointed to Christ ... ... be encouraged ...  ... feel loved and accepted ...
When I came across a study on Hospitality by She Reads Truth, I knew it was one I wanted to do. Felix and I love inviting people into our home, talking and playing games with them. I love cooking and baking. I was curious what would be shared in the study on Hospitality and so far I have not been disappointed. I may have only done three days so far, but I have already been pushed and given some thoughts to think on ... here are two quotes from it or inspired by the study that I wanted to share:

--- Isn’t that true hospitality? Putting yourself in their place, loving them for who they are, and inviting them into t…

Life in pictures

Today was scone making morning to prepare for some guests coming over the next couple of days. Hope there are still some left for when they come, they are soo yummy!  Z kept saying, Mommy, cookie, ahh. {guess someone else liked them, too!}
 On our way home from church. This little one was so tired, but she's not a big sleeper in the car, or if she does sleep, it's only for the last tiny bit!
 Z's moving out because of all the construction in our house :) lol ... that's what it looks like! Felix decided to tackle the task of mounting the hand rail going up the stairs.
Love Saturday morning snuggles! Everyone is very invovled in the book that is being read.

Life is busy. The two littles keep me on my toes and exhausted. But life is good! I have so much to be thankful for and so much to enjoy.

Since, I can't seem to find much time to blog these days and have missed the last few weeks of Monday Gratitudes, I thought I'd switch things up a bit and do one of these again. I haven't done one of these in ages!
