Tonight Tiffany and I are going to a friend’s house for a Jamberry Nail Wraps party. We are looking forward to a little girls’ night out.
We’ve been getting a lot of rain here. I’m told it is from Tropical Depression Bill coming up from the Gulf through Texas. It’s been so wet that Mike and Sean have had to take alternate routes to and from work because of the flash flooding.
Cloudy and rainy days make me want to cuddle up and read a book, play a game, and/or watch a movie or series. So, although I did find a lot of inspiration for future blog posts and Tiffany and I did do some Zumba several times this week, I didn’t accomplish much else.
Tiffany cooks and Sean cleans on Monday nights so that I get a night off at least once a week. It is a wonderful thing! This is something I am so glad I started when the kids were in school. During Sean’s senior year, he was responsible for making dinner one night a week and then I had Tiff do the same. I cannot remember if I started it with Brian or not, but I do know that I had him cook some during his senior year so that he would know how to cook (something other than dessert – but that’s a story for a different day).
Since Tiffany has graduated, we’ve been trying to find a new rhythm to our days. It is hard because she is a writer and is writing a novel. She is going through her own struggles pushing through and completing her first book. I’m so proud of her; she is such a talented writer. I keep reminding myself that at least I have her home with me and I don’t have to suffer being alone during the day. I am however, learning to find a balance between leaving her to her work (or being otherwise creative, as the case may be) and still sharing the day with her.
This Sunday is Father’s Day. I’ve always been so proud of my dad. Like most little girls, I looked up to him. He could do anything in my eyes. He always believed in me and would do anything to help me succeed. I learned about following after God from him, which is probably the thing I am most grateful for. Happy Father’s Day Daddy!!! I love you dearly!
I am also very proud of my dear hubby! He has loved and put up with so much from me. He has worked hard to provide for our family and allowed me to stay home and educate our children. Even when things were tight and I’d offer to get a part-time job, he would not hear of it.
We decided early on that we wanted Mike to be completely involved in the lives of our children. Thus we made decisions to do without some things, material things, to live within our means. Also, Mike has been a self-employed paint contractor for most of our married life, which has brought its own complexities. He has been a great father, provider, and husband to me and our kids. Happy Father’s Day Babe! I love you so much and appreciate all you do!!!
I hope you will celebrate those wonderful fathers in your life. Let them know they are a blessing to you.
Until next time, God bless,
