{Today's Letters}

Monday, May 12, 2014


Dear Timothy James, yesterday we smoked brisket, ate pie, watched our hive split into our maple tree, and enjoyed time with sweet friends on the front porch. Thanks for making Mother's Day so simple and memorable. Dear Bravey Train, your love for speaking yawnese left me no choice but to master eating with one hand. #readyforchopsticks Dear Daily Goals, lately you've become more simplified. Get downstairs before noon, eat something other than cookies for breakfast, and walk to the drug store for more of these. Dear Mr. Loerke, love you more than 187 dirty size 1's with a side of wet wipes. Over and out.

Happy Monday, brave ones! What was the best part of your weekend?

My random nap last night lol. We went to London for the day and then when we got home even though it was like 9:30 at night I had a two hour nap. I got up long enough to change into my jammies, clean the teeth and have a drink of water then crashed out again until like 7am! (And even then I crashed again til 9:30!!)

I need to go shopping for all those kind of things to put in my hospital bag. What do I pack for baby when I don't know if we're having a girl or a boy. Talk about complicated.

Oh well for today I'm going to stick with making a wedding anniversary card for the hubby.

Sounds like you had an amazing first Mother's Day :)
Favorite part of my weekend was having brunch with friends on Sunday. We celebrated our moms together from afar :D

[Late night edition] things I learned tonight and am Thankful for. #12, #13, #21, #37, #38, and #45.

1. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short not to enjoy it.
4. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.
5. Don’t buy stuff you don’t need.
6. You don’t have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.
7. Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.
8. It’s OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for things that matter.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.
12. It’s OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye… But don’t worry; God never blinks.
16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful.  Clutter weighs you down in many ways.
18. Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger.
19. It’s never too late to be happy.  But it’s all up to you and no one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
22. Overprepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words, ‘In five years, will this matter?’
27. Always choose Life.
28. Forgive but don’t forget.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give Time time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do.
35. Don’t audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
36. Growing old beats the alternative — dying young.
37. Your children get only one childhood.
38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d
grab ours back.
41. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what you think you need.
42. The best is yet to come…
43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
44. Yield.
45. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.
