Simple Woman's Daybook ~ Week of January 26, 2009

For Today:

Outside my Window: the sun is shining as the afternoon sun swings around in the cold winter sky.

I am thinking: it is going to be a long few days babysitting my best friend's toddler.

From the learning rooms: I am learning what a huge sacrifice mothering is and thinking that perhaps God knew what He was doing when He left me out of this "club"!

I am thankful for: this opportunity to help my friend out while her daycare person is away on vacation.

From the kitchen: there is silence and order as I have tidied up for Pen so she won't have to when she gets home from work.

I am wearing: green sweat pants, a green hoodie and long sleeve white tee... and huge bags under my eyes from a fitful night's sleep.

I am reading: my Bible although I don't seem to be getting anywhere. I am SO far behind in my Bible reading in a year that it isn't funny. I am beginning to wonder if I'll ever get caught up.

I am hoping: that my 3 days with Hillary don't tucker me out too much for Ladies' Group Thursday morning. I am supposed to be facilitating my small group again and I just hope I'm awake long enough to do it.

I am creating: a lasting bond with my little "god-daughter" Hillary this week!

I am hearing: the calming sound of worship music from the satellite tv, and the noisy houseguest of Pennie's upstairs doing laundry.

Around the house: are signs of a busy toddler, although she is the tidiest toddler I have ever had the pleasure of sitting for!

One of my favorite things: is hearing Hillary laugh and watching her explore her world.

A few plans for the rest of the week: are making sure Hillary is well taken care of, facilitating my small group on Thursday morning and SLEEPING!!!

Here is a picture thought to share with you:
