Big mommy blunder today. Heard a teacher say last week that today was pajama day, so I marked my calendar. I also told my carpool buddy. Picked her up normally this morning and her and #1 were all decked out in pajamas. Got to school and was told by a teacher, oh, pajama day is Thursday, we switched it! And I was supposed to know that how?!? I was a little irritated, but then decided that I would not assume anything unless verbally told or given a note. The worst part was, #1 noticed that he was one of two kiddos wearing pajamas and wouldn't walk in his classroom. The principle offered some clothes that the school keeps for 'accidents'. #1 conceded. The clothes were a little outdated and #1 noticed. He still didn't want to enter the classroom for fear that the other kids would 'laugh at him'. Kill me now! That broke my heart. We said a prayer and I gave him a little 'who cares what anyone thinks' pep talk, he finally went in. On my drive home, upset, the Lord brought to my memory the story about David and the verse about God being concerned only with the heart. On my way to pick the kids up, David Rosales was teaching on that very thing. Confirmation. When we got home, while #1 ate his lunch, I told him the story. I don't know if he understood or not, but it was important for me to tell him. Guess I'll go mark the calendar again. Carpool playlist picture above. Can never go wrong with a little KOC.
What is this?
This blog was inspired by a friend of mine. He has been journaling using photos that he takes daily and publishes to facebook. I am going to attempt to do something similar, but in the form of a blog. I am the wife of a wonderful, godly, fishing addict and a work-at-home mama of three beautiful boys and life, while it can be beautiful, can also be mundane, which can suck the joy out of everyday living. I have so much to be thankful for, and in beginning this blog, I'm hoping to regain my joy. I hope that this will cause me to seek beauty and pleasure in my everyday life. Today is 7-27-11, no significant date, but I hope, the beginning of something really special <3
A couple of parameters for this blog: I will attempt to sum up each day with 1 picture (A collage is okay!). I will keep my posts short and to the point and I will be taking all pictures with my iPhone 4. Enjoy!
