Feb 10

One year ago today, my life completely changed. I held my miracle baby for the very first time! Today, he is turning one... Oh, how the time has past by so quickly! I don't want to miss a single second! Today, I love how the Lord still answers prayers!

Happy Birthday Sweet Boy! I love you more than words could ever express. You are such a special person, and I know God has big plans for your sweet, little life.

Feb 8 & 9

It's looking as if you will get a post from me every other day! Geez, I'm really going to have to make an honest effort to do better sharing things I love each day.

Today I love this blog. I am getting ready to be a part of the "So Long Insecurity" discussion group. I am so excited! Since I am a student 2 nights per week, this type of bible study is ideal for me! And what better author to lead you than this beautiful, Godly woman.

If you are interested in joining, go here to pick you up a copy of the book and here to add your name to the roll call. There is still time to get involved!

Today, I love

Usually, you either love sushi or hate it. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! I believe I could eat it every day (if I could afford it).

I also love this book that I just finished! It is so good. It's one of those books which really make you think about things. Go read it if you haven't!

Feb 6 & 7

Yesterday was Baby K's first birthday party. It was absolutely wonderfully exhausting! We mailed out about 50 invites to our family and close friends. We probably had about 50-60 people show up, so I consider that a huge turn out. I love this picture of my little birthday boy...and he's WALKING! I love watching him!

And here are my niece and nephew with him. He loves them so much!

I will have a special post in the near future. We had a friend take professional portraits, and I just can hardly wait to see them.

Today, I love cough syrup. Even the nasty, yucky tasting kind.

I've been fighting off a cold for over two weeks. I've been treating it with almost everything you can think of over the counter. I decided this morning that I needed to go to Urgent Care for something stronger. I'm so glad I did. Turns out I have the beginning stages of pneumonia. I hate that Urgent Care is open on Sundays, but I love that I was able to get in/out today without much hassle. I also won't have to miss work this week to go to the regular doctor either.

Hope you are having a great weekend.

I love SUNSHINE!!!! I hope by expressing my sincerest appreciation that it will make the sun want to come out from hiding and dry up all of this snow/sleet/ice that we've accumulated over the past 24 hours.

I love Jason Aldean's newest CD. K surprised me with it for my birthday. He knows me so well! I just love that I can pop it in the CD player and listen to it in its entirety. It is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good. In fact, I have it playing right now. Just one of the things I love this month!

Love Month

My friend Deidre has the most wonderful idea! For the month of February she's listing the things she loves each day, and she has invited others to play along! So, if you want to play, jump on board!

I am a little behind the gang, but I confess that I love listing things that make my life wonderful. It is humbling and gratifying to count my blessings. So, without further ado, here are some things I love:

First, I love these two guys more than anything on Earth!

I knew love before them. I love my family and friends, but I never knew love this deeply. The kind of love that moves Heaven and Earth for their happiness. The love that overwhelms your entire being. And because I love them so much, it makes it almost impossible for me to wrap my head around how much God must love me/you.

The next thing I love is birthdays!

Why? Because we get to eat lots of cake and not feel guilty about it!!!! I just celebrated my 30th bday on Monday. It was really low key since we had about a foot of snow/ice on the ground. I spent the day at home with K and Baby K since our daycare was closed. (That was so much better than working as I had originally planned!) I mentioned this last post but Baby K's first birthday party is this coming Saturday. Unfortunately, we have more snow in the forecast. (So, as selfish as it sounds, would you please join me in praying for NO SNOW!?! Call me crazy, but I do NOT love Snow!!!!)

Today, what I love is this bible verse. Deidre shared it with me while I was walking through infertility. This verse has gotten me through so many hard times, both past and present.

"Not that I speak in respect of want: For I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content." Philippians 4:11

I just love, love, love it! And Deidre, I love you for sharing it with me! (By the way, if you need to read a good, inspiring, Christian blog then jump on over to Deidre's. She is always inspiring me with her words of encouragement and parenting techniques. Plus, as an added incentive, you get a few laughs as well. God is using her blog to reach many people. I don't think she realizes how important it is to those of us who follow her.)

See you tomorrow!!!
