Sunshine Sunday - the internet, reading, and the primary program

I am very grateful for internet access at home his week.  I'm back in action!  It was a bit frustrating to figure it all out, but that has a way of making you appreciate something you took for granted.  If you've emailed me in the last week and a half and not heard back, please be patient with me.  I'm still trying to dig myself out of my inbox.

I just finished a book about motherhood and seriously helped me see things a bit differently.  Sometimes I feel overwhelmed as a mother.  I love it, but I often feel like I'm falling short.  (You can find the book HERE if you're interested.)

I don't usually get around to reading, so the internet being down actually helped me in that regard.  I just wish there were more hours in a day because I'd love to squeeze more reading in.  I just started the Outliers, which is totally different than the book I just mentioned, but I really like it too.

Today I am really excited because it's our Primary Program at church.  There's one Sunday a year when the children (3-11yr. olds) get to do all the speaking and singing.  It's Rex's first program and he's got his lines all memorized.  He's seriously excited.  I'm over the children at our church, so I've been working on this a while too.  I can't wait to hear all the children speak and sing.  It's usually my favorite Sunday of the year.

Lastly, I'm grateful this week is over.  Do ever have a week when you know things are packed tightly and then other things seem so go wrong on top of it?  Then when it's over you can finally say, "Yeah!  I did it and it's over."  I love how life goes round and round - the weeks, the months, and the seasons - because it gives you so many chances to start fresh.

Thank you for being a part of this blog.  I really appreciate you.
