Thankful Thursday–Music

As a mom you often find you cannot turn things off.

Your brain, children, dinner, pets, grocery shopping, laundry, etc.

To combat my distracted self so I can finish cleaning and laundry I use my iPod to quiet those thoughts so I don't walk back and forth through the house forgetting why I am standing in front of the refrigerator and then walked to the bedroom.

I only have three requirements for my playlist, it is easy to sing to, clean, and fun.

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

This is my newest (to me) favorite song.  I heard it on someone’s blog and had to have it. 

It also makes me feel like Spring and Summer are just around the corner!  Aaahhhhhh……

Being Average

…..that is what I once wished worked for me.

I didn’t want to stand out.  I didn’t want attention.  I wanted to blend in.

I wanted to be just the right amount of helpful but not so much that it got me noticed.  I wanted to be just funny enough that someone is amused but not so much that milk came out their nose.

I want things to go smoothly.  I want no large problems.  I want to be what everyone else thinks everyone else is and they are not.

Thankfully, not one of us is that average person, are we?  You always seem like you are when I see you out at the store or church but you aren’t are you?

Good.  I thought I was the only one.

What works for me this week is being average.  Those few seconds were unexpected now back to my amazingly unusual life.  Average is overrated.

Mondays - The Jumble Of Life

There are days, weeks, months even that pass when life moves so fast you lose track of time. 

You rush the kids out the door with lunch sacks in their hands.  They need to eat in the car.  You are late.

But if you give them just a few extra minutes you will find they made those extra 5 minutes into something special.

I hope and pray they remember this today and not their crazy mommy.
