I got nothin'...

I'm sorry people, but I really don't have anything to blog about today. The day was one of my more tired ones, I went to the dentist (still no cavities), Keenan hid the cordless phone in the bathroom drawer next to our toothbrushes, and I discovered that he thinks it's Hilarious when I slam a board book shut in front of him. That's about it. Goodnight.

It's OK Joia, we are all good... can't expect a mini book complete with pictures EVERY day... Love you Mom

Joia... I heard a broadcast on Focus on the Family on 6/5/08.Their guest was Julianne Barnhill & she wrote a book, entitled, "One Tough Mother". I caught part 2 of 2 on the broadcast. You can find the broadcast in its entirety on the FOF website (focusonthefamily.com) I stopped in my car and wept when I heard her speak..the good stuff (for me) started around 14 or 15 min. into Part 2. It's called, "Confident Strength of a Mom" on their site.

She talked about delighting in your perfectly 'ordinary child' and your perfectly ordinary day. It was a wonderful message that all mom's need to be reminded of (in my humble opinion). At least *I* needed it. So, the next time you think you've "got nothin"...really, you have it all! Your discovery of what Keenan finds Hillarious, is just what Julianne talked about! Delighting in the ordinary, and your blog demonstrates that SO well!
I love you, Mom
