To combat feelings of inadequacy, I accepted a challenge from the beautiful missionaries we know to keep a daily record of blessings. And because I just dont have time to write out deep and clever posts, I am keeping it simple with a Crosby, Stills, and Nash nod.
One week of blessings in my haphazard attempt to keep track of them.
2/15/20 J is speaking much more clearly now
CM willingly and I think happily prepared her talk for church
R ate raspberries
We managed to do many of the things we’d planned to do
Kids worked through various disagreements
2/16 I got a nap
CM did a fantastic job on her talk
I remembered in time that I was giving the closing prayer
CA is making progress and much more himself
B offered me a bunch of clothing that was exactly what I needed
The deck outside is perfect for kids to play on and get less muddy than with yard play.
M is an incredible husband, father, brother, son, employee, friend, Young Men leader and self
J fell asleep on the couch at bedtime
CM made her first brownies and frosting with B’s and C’s help
2.17 R ate a real meal finally at 4pm
Ducky the chicken sang a supportive squawky song when Fluffer was trying to lay an egg
CM is learning to cook and bake
CE played well with her cousins
M went to a missionary lesson and did a great family night activity with us
2.18.20 J stayed safe despite his various wanderings (did he follow me, or was he headed down the driveway regardless?)
2.20 I loved seeing the Montessori school
The weather was amazing. I played with the kids and laughed in the spiral, dark slide
2.21 Poopy diaper self-removal by toddler trying to get into shower with me could have been so much worse
R ate 2 breakfast sandwiches (for dinner)
Our house is coming along!! Because of the people in it, it will be a very, very, very fine house.
We have an exit strategy for Extra the cat
AH saved the day when I realized that I would be psycho to try driving people to a skiing thing 2.5 hours away.
2.22 R and CM brought me freshly cut daffodils. I realized I was being a big nincompoop and went to a baby shower even though I felt a bit off and wanted to be a hermit.
2.23 Heather is the only cat again
One thought on “With(out) Two Cats in the Yard”
Thank you for your gratitude list. So elucidating. My favorite was that Ducky tried to soothe Fluffers through her labor pains 🙂
