Today was a hard day. I have been really struggling. Willful children, a house that never seems to quite get clean, lack of personal time/devotions, etc. have left me feeling frazzled. So, I was very thankful for the kindness of two dear people in my life, who made personal sacrifies so that I could get away for a few hours.

Thank you, so, so much to my sweet friend, Stacy, and my dear hubby, Matt, for allowing me a little time to unwind, pray, think, plan, and recharge.
A little puttering in the library, and an hour of quiet in my favorite coffee shop...I feel like a new woman.


  1. isn't it great when you can get away! Especially when you get away long enough to start missing the kids again?! =)

  2. Something must be in the stars. I felt this same way today. With a willful child and a house that never seems to get quite clean I, too, felt very frazzled. For some reason, I have just simply felt overwhelmed. Brian and I just finished discussing it, in fact. I logged onto your site for my nightly escape. I am glad that you feel like a new woman. You deserve it for being such a wonderful mama. Those boys need and love you for all that you do. You are a wonderful, wonderful person, christian, wife and mother.
