Does anybody else hate been sick?? I loathe it, don't know what it is but I just cannot stand it. Maybe it is the admitting that I am not superwoman & cannot do everything. Maybe it is the stopping & having to rest, which I am also not good at!! All in all I dislike it immensely. Also the girls (excluding georgie of course) have been (it seems like) constantly sick, something else I am just not used to. Maybe it is God allowing me to realise that I am human, my kids are human & you get sick. That you cannot rely on your own strength, that sometimes you have to rely on Him. You cannot do it ALL yourself & sometimes things have just got to give!! Maybe I cannot juggle all the balls & that is ok. It is ok to just BE. Through this though I am learning some valuable & important lessons. There is nothing more important than my relationship with God, My beautiful husband & my gorgeous girls. There is nothing more important than beautiful friends. There is nothing more important than down time.
Sometimes you need to look outside your little world & see what is truly going on around you. There is people in far more sad & precarious places than you are in & sometimes you just need to let go of the little insignificant things as in the eyes of eternity, they are really meaningless!!
This week we had a baby shower for this beautiful woman. Now her story is one of little miracle after little miracle. Rie (as I fondly call her) is due to give birth to her third child (we are still waiting by the way much to her chagrin). She has two beautiful boys & we cannot wait to see this new little one. It was a lovely morning tea & she had a great time. Here is photo of us together, this is the first time we do not have a photo of us pregnant together. This friendship has been a journey for both of us & I love her to pieces. Look forward to sharing more years & birthdays with her.
Well that is my post for this day Sunday. Hoping you all have a GREAT Monday. I will leave you with a daggy photo of my two youngest girls. This is what happens when I let them dress themselves!! LOL. They will love these photos when they are 21 I am sure.... :) Love Mexx
PS By the way I did do some scrapping with some cool girls but I don't know how to copy the photo from Lee's blog. Friday night sick I went to this gorgeous girls house with some other gorgeous girls for a scrap night. It was awesome (thanks Lee). I am hoping it will become a regular thing, they are SUPER cool gals!!!
