reading Elizabeth George’s A Mom After God’s Own Heart: 10 Ways to Love Your Children among other Christian parenting books because I need all the help I could get to be a better mom to my girls, especially to my moody teenager.
writing mostly blog posts lately, as well as journal entries. Aside from reading books, I am realizing that I’m usually in a much better disposition when I am able to write down my thoughts and feelings, especially the negative ones in my journal. That way, I get to do some introspection and avoid having (ugly) confrontations, since doing so helps clear my mind and makes it a lot easier for me to forgive those who need my forgiveness.
listening to the sound of the wind, thunder, and rain. I actually like it when it rains, especially when we’re all at home. However, when it starts to rain so hard I also begin to worry about a lot of things, such as the possibility of a brownout, our dogs not having enough dry space for themselves, floods, etc.
thinking about the recent changes in my assignment at Glorious Hope. I’m still trying to listen to what God is telling me, why He allowed me to coach another group when I’ve already come to passionately care and pray for the members of my original group. Nevertheless, I am happy to have the opportunity to be a life coach to all these women.
smelling the lotion I just used on my hands after helping Lil Sis wash her clothes that our cat Sparky peed on. I don’t understand what made her do it, especially that she’s potty trained and her cat litter box is very much accessible to her. I hope that doesn’t happen again!
wishing I already had everything about homeschool figured out. The truth is, I’m still struggling with crafting tests and all. I find them so time-consuming, especially that quizzes are already provided in the textbooks.
hoping I could get Big ‘n Lil Sis to focus more on their studies these days, especially that they’ll be taking the OLSAT soon and we’re supposed to end the current school at least a month before September
wearing my first ever Nike running shoes, which is also the most expensive shoes I’ve ever owned now, to church earlier makes me excited to go out and run and/or do some brisk walking tomorrow morning. I originally got myself a pair of Nike Free Run in lilac, but had to exchange it yesterday for a pair of black Nike Odyssey React because I couldn’t afford to get the former soiled and dirtied as I use it while walking around the village. I just find it too pretty to use!
loving how my husband has been spoiling me, showering me (and the girls) with gifts, as well as how much he’s trying now to be a good fitness model for us, so we could all be healthy. I wonder if it’s common though among men with dad bods to turn into health buffs when they turn 40…
wanting to sleep now, but it’s still rather early and I still have things to do, such as fold the laundry and plan the lessons for the coming week
needing to learn to listen more to both what my girls are saying and not saying to me
feeling so tired and sleepy, really. One of the reasons I’m having difficulty keeping this blog these days is the fact that I get so sleepy and grumpy by the time the clock strikes nine.
praying for my daughters to become young women after God’s own heart and for the participants of Glorious Hope #Unlock 2018 to be able to overcome all the bondages that keep them from reaching their full potential and living a victorious life in Christ
thanking the Lord for all His blessings
