Sometimes we get reminded of how important perspective is. A few examples lately:
MJ is SO excited to “vote” tomorrow at school. Many (including me) take this for granted or see it as a chore or burden. My eight year old is looking forward to it, she did her “research” and knows who she is voting for and prepared to defend it! Many fought for this right for all of us and we should all see it that way! No matter your political preference or level of HAD IT with this election, I hope everyone has voted or will vote tomorrow!
I take MJ to school 99% of the time. I won’t lie and say that I don’t take it for granted. I am blessed to have the ability to do that. I have since she was in K-5. I took Christian to school for the most part until he was able to drive. This is something that some Moms would love to do. This morning, Mike was so happy to be able to drive MJ to school. He’s playing in a golf tournament today and made sure he planned his morning to have the time for his baby girl. It warms my heart mostly but it also reminds me that what one person might grumble about or not look forward to, another longs for. What one person sees as a responsibility, another sees as a JOY.
I guess it’s fitting that I am realizing this now…in this season of THANKSGIVING. Basically, I am hoping this reminds me to not take things for granted, to choose JOY and to be thankful for the blessings that the Lord has given me. Maybe someone else could use a reminder too. 🙂
My girl is growing up so fast!!!
I’m catching up here! Life can get so crazy at times, huh? So blessed to have the crazy though. It means we’re happy and moving and shaking and loving life!! Here the princess, week of Nov 11…
Still doing this photo thing daily…I wish I had done it from the first day!!! So fun to look back at my silly girl!! It also makes me laugh when I think of what was going on that morning…why her hair was up or down or if we took the pic in my room or the front door. Funny how memories do that! 🙂
Been a little sick and busy lately so I’m behind again! Here is the fashionista at her best! 🙂 My FAVE is the middle of course!!
We had a wonderful week! We ended it with Fall Festival tonight at school and I had a vacation day today!!! MJ rocked these cute ensembles this week…
Only had to manage three days of school madness last week! 🙂 She makes the most of every day. We truly can learn a lot from our kiddos!! Here’s what my baby girl rocked last week!
I’m on a roll now! 🙂 Here is my baby girl’s wardrobe from last week. She loves doing this as much as I do!!!!! I LOVE BEING A GIRL MOM so hard sometimes!!! 🙂
So I’m a little behind…but this is the fashion show from MJ from September 30 – October 4th. I love her style. So much!
This isn’t even a joke. MJ LOVES to have her picture made. (I know you’re thinking – Duh, Captain Obvious.) She also loves a routine and she finds it really hard to break one when she’s in it. Of course, at the beginning of school we took a pic the first few mornings…well it’s become a part of her day and she loves it. I also have this rule about wearing the same thing twice in two weeks (as in, don’t do it) so it also helps me remember what she wore!! So, here’s an example….
