Lesson learned the past few days:
Enjoy every single second you have with your children, they grow too fast, you're not going to get a second chance to do it over, so make every minute count.
With Nicholas turning 6 years old this last Saturday and Jasmine about to turn 10 years old, I'm reminded of how quickly time flies and how much I want to cherish every moment.

On my Prayer List:
My family
My husband and children

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:

So that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men (human philosophy), but in the power of God. 1 Corinthians 2: 5

Lesson learned: so VERY true.

I love your post about his birthday. It just breaks my heart sometimes when I lay my little guy down for his nap - all too soon those moments will be gone. I lucked out and got a second chance when I thought my daughter would be my last. I sure appreciate it more each day.

I so know what you mean about kiddos growing so fast...I have been thinking about babies alot and can't believe it was almost 6 years ago that I had my first! :)

My friend has 30 Day Shred too and likes it! Sounds ouch-ie to me, but I should check it out after baby! :)

Great post! Have a wonderful Monday! :)

Hi Sandra -
I'm going to have to look into your 30 day shred info - sounds very interesting! Especially if you are already seeing results.

Have a great week!

Kathleen said...

Hi Sandra,
I loved reading your list as usual but I still don't know if I will have time to do mine.
I didn't know it was Nicholas's birthday as I was away, at my in-laws, and didn't have a computer with me. Happy Birthday!!!
What's that 30 day shred??? I'm curious.

Kari said...

I enjoyed reading your list. I think I'll have to check out your 30 day shred. I need some help!!

I agree with your lesson learned - they do grow up very fast.
Have a great week.

How true it is that your babies grow up too fast! Nope you cant go back....those moments are lost forever! I have a hard time with that becasue I missed so much with my boys. That is why I work the schedule I work now (weekends only) so that I can enjoy my grand.

Wendi said...

Your lesson learned is so true! My baby girl is hardly a baby anymore and I just don't how that happened so quick.

Have a great day!

I tried a version of your meatloaf with the vegetable soup in it? I didn't use enough breadcrumbs because it totally fell apart; however, it was delish! I served it on a whole wheat sub bun for a "disheveled meatloaf sandwich" and I froze the leftovers to be eaten over rice.

Have a wonderful week!
