This week has been busy. I am feeling a bit swamped... no really, like one must wade through a pile of papers to get to the computer, a pile of laundry to sit on the couch, and a slew of toys to get, well, anywhere in this house. Welcome to the Swampland! My name is Amanda and I will be your tour guide. I will guide you through the thick of this marshy laundry pile. Do watch out for plastic dinosaurs and various miniature farm animals lurking beneath the surface. They've been known inflict great pain upon your toes...
(Yeah, it's late as I type this. I am a little weird. Hopefully, I am entertaining if nothing else... fingers crossed. ha!)
Needless to say, my thankful list is short. Mostly because I don't have the time to edit many pictures. I know you're understanding :)
#49 Eyes to see a teeny-tiny praying mantis nymph... and the wonder of a child at it.
#50 Watching a serious-faced little girl inhale the sweet goodness of fragrant little blossoms
#56 3-year-old prayers. Addy's made-up mumble words when she prays and knowing God understands her heart. (No picture but I wanted to share it. It was one of those "wow, I am doing something right as a parent" moments. Those need to be written down for the rough days. My little girl prays, and she loves to pray! Why? Because I started letting her sit with me when I pray... and started praying out loud in my car when I drive. I may want to be selfish and keep that time all to myself, but getting to listen to her prayers is a GOOD gift. I've taught her to pray! Heart Is Singing!)
Happy Thursday Friends :)
