I Am... Mama and Writer

First Mama.  Then Writer.  Though, of late, the latter has consumed a great deal of time as I work to get things in order to potentially be ...

Thankful Thursday; Week of September 1 - 7, 2011

Thursday, September 1, 2011:  I'm thankful for a quiet day at home, during which I was able to accomplish much and write another 4 pages on my story.  I'm grateful for my Ria and all the goodness she desires to be and do!  I'm grateful for her efforts to help me with the laundry!  I think it's beginning to "pay off," all that time I spent with her as toddler... letting her "do" laundry.  Now, when she does it, it's actually helpful!  ^_^   I'm also grateful for the continued feeling of being inspired to exercise.  Worked out to Susan Powter tonight.  Felt the workout from last night... GOOD tightnesses!  ^_^

Friday, September 2, 2011:  I'm thankful for a quiet day at home during which I was able to finally respond to a very interesting discussion on my religion that I'm having with a friend.  We're around 20 or 21 email exchanges in now and that's been over the last almost three weeks, now, I think!  So NEAT!!  I'm sad that cardio dance class at church for today and tomorrow were cancelled, but thankful that I have lots of videos and whatnot to use at home.  I'm so happy to feel so excited and hopeful about getting fit.  It also helps that I feel a sort of heavenly deadline!  Praise the Lord for His Heavenly Helps, Tender Mercies, and Great Gifts!!!!  ^_^

Saturday, September 3, 2011:  I'm thankful for another day at home!!  I love being here and am grateful when it works out that I get to enjoy my children (sometimes said sarcastically) and get things done around here!  Currently, as a result of our "many" days at home, I've been able to catch up washing laundry (though not necessarily the folding and putting away... Ria's been providing some service in that area... what a JOY!), keeping the floors swept, staying on top of the communications I need and some that I desire to do, AND exercising.  I'm thankful for the wonderful workout Yoga provided today.  LOVED it!  I think that's going to be my preferred exercise for a bit... LOTS of sweating, not so much with the out-of-breath-ness.  :)

Sunday, September 4, 2011:  I'm thankful for a wonderful Spirit present in the Fast and Testimony Meeting today at church.  It felt wonderful!  I felt and still feel SO happy!  So many youth bore testimony today.  It was a pleasure!  :)  I'm thankful for the opportunity to have the Missionaries over for dinner tonight.  One of the two is my most favorite (yes, I know that's not good grammar) missionary in forever!  And he's SO much like Jessie... hmmm... YES!  OF COURSE!, that's why he's my favorite in forever... I'm sure of it!  :)  I'm also thankful for the calling extended to Jessie at church today and hopeful that he will accept it.  Don't know HOW the Lord can work things to provide him (Jessie) time to DO anything with the calling... but God's ways are not [my] our ways!  I'm sure He can and WILL... after the trial of Jessie's Faith... assuming Jess accepts the calling.  I'm rootin for acceptance!  :)

Monday, September 5, 2011:  I'm thankful for good weather, which enabled me to work in and on the back yard.  I'm slowly choppin down the forrest of grass we've been growing.  I was rather hoping to get a goat or two back there to do it for me, but my hope has blown away... down to the nitty gritty... and with this sand it sure CAN be gritty work (mowing, I mean)!!!  I was also able to work on one of my SFGs.  ^_^  YEAY!!!  I've felt like we've had SUCH a naked yard this last year... no food stuffs TRYing to grow and all.  Now it's feeling better that I'm trying to get things goin'.  :)  (I perspired so much in the outside work, I gave myself a break from video workouts.  Seems Jimmy's in a growth-spurt, for which I AM grateful, but it's disconcerting when the milk maker's don't feel like they're getting full!  hehehe  ^_^

Tuesday, Septemeber 6, 2011:  I'm thankful for a smooth and enjoyable library trip.  It was quite fast, which was fine sincemy head was poinding out an unsteady rhythm.  ;)  I continue to be amazed and full of gratitude for my funny little girls who love shopping so much that they are almost totally little angels when we go GROCERY shopping!  It does feel good to receive compliments on their sweetness and good behavior!!  Jimmy was happily hanging in his pouch in my sling.  He's almost always happy there!  ^_^

Wednesday, September 7, 2011:  I'm thankful for a day at home in which to get some things done that needed to be done.  I'm grateful for Jimmy's sweetness, in the evening, which enabled me to do my Yoga video.  What a pleasure to get through it even with him awake!
