Today was one of those really great days. The ones that aren’t just happy, but are joy filled. One of those where things just kind of work out and laughter is big. One where you just feel good at the end of the day. It doesn’t happen everyday…by any stretch, but sometimes we hammer on through and choose joy throughout the day.
*Got up way too early and ran. It was a super cold, good, hard run and when we were closing in on the parking lot where our cars were parked, I thought about how blessed I was to be able to run. And I picked up my pace a bit.
*The wee Kelleys had dentist appointments. They love the dentist…I have no idea why. I kind of dread going myself, but my kids love it. And no cavities and Huddy flossed all the way home. He loves floss.
(The boys are all back there. I look pasty white and tired. I need a tan and a nap. Ha.)
*Amon still won’t for real crawl…only swims his little body all over our house, but he pulled himself up on the steps yesterday. And today did it more and more…and on small chairs and stools and knees. I just adore this child.
*I made some treats for a sweet friend. She deserves them. And I made a few extra cookies for us too. The ride home from school may have consisted of everyone enjoying a chocolate chip cookie.
*This kids birthday is next week. 4…ugh…he’s going to be 4. How can it be. Time is no friend of mine. I adore his old man ways and his intensity and passion. And his deep love. They other day when we all ran at the park…he asked to hold my hand the whole time. Swoon.
*Today I finished up a big batch of canvases. I have so many more to complete, but so far I’m moving right along.
*How humbling and comforting and amazing and seriously, I just don’t deserve a God who cares and loves and fights like mad for me. But, whoa, how crazy thankful I am.
*We went to the party store today and let Sol pick out some fun plates and napkins for him to enjoy his cake on. He chose Transformer stuff. There was a serious debate in his little head between Transformers and Star Wars…it was a nail biter for sure. In the end, Transformers won out. Huddy declared, “It’s okay Sol. For my birthday I’ll have Star Wars.” His birthday is in September.
*A kind, kind friend made us dinner for tonight and I did not have to even think about what was going to be for dinner. Maybe my most favorite part of the day…that’s sad right?!?! And it was amazingly delicious.
*And now, I’m sitting on the couch and every last little Kelley is already in bed by 7pm. Now it’s time to get back to work. Crash Kings playing from our iTunes and my finger tips need to be dyed a little bit blacker. That is some for real joy.
Have a great night.
