Thursday thoughts...

Whew...is it Thursday again already?! Where does the week go?
We are all happy (mostly) and healthy.

I've had a bunch of thoughts, ideas prayers going around in my head this week so forgive me if I'm even more disjointed than usual.

Littlest girl-y is hungry, again! I swear this kid has a stomach the size of a thumbtack, or she asks for food when she bored (read: tv goes off).

We got SNOW! Again. Last year when we lived in Calgary, this would not have been even notable, this year, in Langley, it's a bit weird. I'm so cold and anyone who knows me knows I'm a serious whiner about the cold.

I've been thinking a lot about what kind of parent I am. Does this every plague anyone else? What will my kids remember about me? Do I spend enough real time/energy on them? Am I kind? Do I yell to much (I already know the answer is yes - yikes!) We have been studying women in the Bible at my Wednesday am bible study and I'm starting to feel some conviction. My life does not alway reflect God's love especially not to the people I love the most. I'm so inconsistent sometimes it kills me.

The weight is coming off soooooo slllloooooooowwwwwwwwlllllllyyyy. I'm a bit frustrated by it! Kev says he sees a difference though and my pants are way loser - yah! New clothes shopping in spring! I ate a pbj for lunch and it made me feel like I weigh 600lbs. Silly but true. Why is weight/looks such a big deal for women in our culture. We get so much positive attention for weight loss and outward beauty. It's not eternal...I am hoping to learn perseverance through all of this. I really suck at that OH and patience too- yikes!

I should sign off. My house looks like a small bomb (well 4 small bombs actually) exploded and I need to shower and get ready to go out.

God Bless on this winter, but almost spring day:)

cheers,
Shay

Wow, I totally kwym about thinking about my parenting, and if I being the woman that God wants me to be. I sometimes feel like I will never be even close. Thankfully he makes up for all our weakness.
Take care,
