Oh how I have enjoyed the cooler Texas weather! It just makes everything feel so cozy and homey! One Saturday we actually didn’t have any where we needed to be, and it felt so great to work around the house. Jason took the kids out side and had them all “helping” fix the play scape in the back yard. They swept, drilled, and painted and most importantly got along fabulously the entire day.
While the rest of the family worked outside, I was busy inside. I baked chocolate chip cookies, banana bread, and pumpkin bread and made potato soup. I was so happy to reward them with my yummy homemade goodness when they came in tired and hungry. Oh this is just one of those days I want to remember when life feels so hectic and like nothing is going right. In those times it’s so easy to feel discouraged and forget these great days, but I cannot–I must not! There ARE great days. I thank the Lord for this reminder!
