Sometimes I'm okay with that and sometimes as I see it all dripping down like water through a sieve, I feel so thirsty that I want to rush in with a bucket and gulp it all down before it's all gone.
Sometimes life happens and there's a hole in my bucket.
Sometimes it feels like I'm trying to carry it all one handed, like I've got one hand tied behind my back and I struggle with it all.
This time I kinda sorta do.
In the midst of all that, this happened.
And then God blessed us with this, for 1/3 of the asking price, low miles, good upholstery, newish tires and in good running order. Can I get an "Amen"?
Besides celebrating the boys birthdays, we've carved pumpkins.
Twice, once at Auntie's work and once with friends.
We had a fabulous time!
And like any good mother (NOT!) I forgot to bring along my camera, the kids candy buckets and something else, I have already forgotten again . . . hmmm . . so it must not have been too much of a big deal.
Oh yeah, it was the glow sticks.
Oh well, the kids didn't seem to mind.
I did take a few pictures with my cell phone. Now if I could only figure out how to get them off the phone and onto this here blog.
Not to worry though I do have some pictures that I took when we went to Auntie's work.
Someone wasn't very happy about being woken up from his nap, forced to put on a dragon costume and get in the car although he was soon happy enough when he saw that there was candy to be had.
This fall weather has been as spectacular and as gorgeous as was our summer weather and we have really been enjoying it.
Oh, and in the news from September category, I got a job!
A part-time job working for one of our local quilt shops and I have really been enjoying it. However with my arm in a sling I haven't worked much this month and all my pending projects have been put on hold. But I am itching to get back to it.
I am so grateful and so thankful for God's goodness and mercy raining down that my cup runneth over spilling all over the place and that my friend's is always (at least to me) news worthy.
"I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever;
With my mouth will I make known
Your faithfulness to all generations."
