This morning I woke in a funk.. not a normal yucky funk.. but a URG kind.. FOR NO REASON.. With Joels help I was able to get all the kids dressed, fed and out the door by 8:30 for Judah’s soccer pictures and game at 9:10. Success.. expect half way there my car overheated.. I was at a stop sign so I turned it off… AND THEN could not restart the dumb thing. I was in slight panic mode but had quickly devised a plan to get the kids arocc the street and then to wait for Joel. ONLY problem he was on his way to work. 😦 So I finally got the van started and then quickly drove home. Poor Judah was sad, I was bummed and Lydia was screaming.
I held Judah for awhile and my heart hurt as he sat FULLY dressed *in uniform, outside ‘thinking’. He had a perfect idea .. “mom if we lived on a farm we could just ride our horse there’. Yes baby we could..
I decided I needed a heart adjustment so with lemon oil diffusing in my house I began to unpack all our FALL stuff. CAUSE come-on fall makes you think happy and grateful things right?!?! Judah helped and within minutes all the kids were and we were laughing and making our one table very “Fall-ish”.
I also prayed for a gentle heart and a grateful heart for the rest of the day.. filled with fun and smiles. We finished our ‘table’ and I think we ALL did a great job! Hello, FALL!!
These next two pictures are by far my favorite pieces on the whole table.. *please realize i am waiting to get pictures from this year to add to the bottom of the frame:)
So far our day has turned out better. Sometimes you just need to make lemonade out of lemons or pumpkin bread out of pumpkins!! So thankful for season changes here!!!
