The weather in my neck of the woods:
Raining, raining and more raining. It's the reason this post is so late getting up, because there's no school or work and with the sound of the rain I completely overslept. Feels good though :)
One of my simple pleasures:
Listening to the rain, I could stand near my bedroom window and watch and listen to the pitter patter all day long.

Homemaking Tip for this week:
I know most of us ladies have pierced ears, but how many of you sometimes go long periods of time without wearing any earrings only to find that when you do want to put some on, it's a bit of a pain to get the earring through?
I have this problem especially with Jasmine and I hate hurting her, so I started using a little dab of antibiotic ointment on the tip and they slide right through while also keeping it nice and clean and disinfected.
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
"She deserves some TLC" from Sandra at Sister Faith. Such a good post :)
Favorite photo from last week:
My new baby
Lesson learned the past few days:
That sometimes it's ok to have your kids miss one day of school even if they're not sick. Why? Because Friday we all needed that extra time together, that bonding, that TLC and it's exactly what we got. I used to get so upset when the kids missed a day of school even if they were sick, I just didn't like doing that but I quickly realized that I'm the mom and I know better than anyone if a day at home whether due to sickness OR not, is what is best for them.
On my Prayer List:
Family and Friends
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body--whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free--and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.
1 Corinthians 12:12-13
