Happy Friday! The girls and I are headed out for lunch and then watching Despicable Me 3 together today. We are so excited!
Sorry I missed posting my June book review yesterday. I’ll try to share that with you early next week.
Chris and I loaded the girls up yesterday for a full day on Current River. We have had a busy week and haven’t had a lot of time to relax with just us four, so we decided a river day was a must. It was the perfect day together and the highlight of my week. I love going to the river and just watching the girls play and have fun. We went on a long boat ride and saw lots of turtles and even a few snakes. Then we stopped at a gravel bar and swam and played for hours.
I’ve had a really hard time this week missing dad. He’s been gone 4 weeks today. I try to hide my tears from the girls, but one day this week Emily woke up and saw me crying a bunch. She came up and gave me a big hug and just snuggled with me. The girls have also had a hard time with losing their Papa Tim. It’s all something we are working out together. Anyways, later that day Emily was down in the basement cleaning her room and came upstairs and handed me this sweet note. Attached to the back was a beautiful coloring page she colored for me, but I forgot to take a picture of it. This kind gesture definitely lifted my spirits and made my day. She is such a thoughtful kid.
The last thing I am sharing is a screenshot I took off my Facebook news feed. It’s not a very good picture because I was trying to fit it all into one screenshot. However, the message really spoke to me. I am so guilty sometimes of secretly judging others and wondering why they even bother coming to church if they just go right back out into the world not living for God. This message reminded me that I should be so focused on my relationship with God and not even bothered by what others are doing.
Hope you all have a great Friday and wonderful holiday weekend! We hope to swim as much as possible, watch as many fireworks as possible, and spend our time with family and friends.
