It's also a reminder of how fleeting a week really is! I look back at these and wonder where my week went. It is gone - in an instant!
The Bible talks about our life being a mist, that appears for a little while, and then vanishes. I don't want to waste it. I want to be intentional about living it, and I want to be thankful for the precious moments that make up my days, my weeks.
Like this week. I'm thankful I...
|watched Mary Grace work on a sport she LOVES.|
|admired Mary Grace's and Faith's creativity - they painted these shoes at a bday party!|
|watched Faith & Hannah complete a Pinterest project. We heart Bolivar, MO!|
|smiled when I saw this turtle that visits our garage a couple of times a week to eat the cat food!|
I wonder who put that touch of pink there?
|snapped this picture on Father's Day. And he's a good one!|
|crafted a bit with the girls to decorate our mantel. Smile, Elizabeth.|
|saw this beautiful, yet unknown plant while I walked around the square in Fayetteville, AR.|
|gasped when I saw this stunning crepe myrtle - also on the square in Fayetteville.|
|decided to eat here when I saw 1 kajillion people go in it - also on the square in Fayetteville.|
I am a fan of Fayetteville, if you haven't noticed.
|stayed at the Hampton Inn in...Fayetteville, where they had random things on the inside of their elevators....|
|marveled at the handiwork of God in these much needed rain clouds. And where did I see these? Fayetteville.|
|laughed when I saw where the girls ended up after their afternoon jog|
|tried to jump our 87 Dodge Dakota. I was unsuccessful, but I tried.|
While in Fayetteville, I bought a bushel purple hull peas - my favorite!! When I got home, we had a shelling party. Lots of good conversation as we did that mindless, thumb-staining task. We also enjoyed a little banana's foster courtesy of my Lou. Who I skipped to and thanked for making such a yummy dessert!
Thanks for sharing my week with me.
I hope you have an incredible restful weekend. One where you have the time and inclination to look back and be thankful.
