Happy Monday


August 13, 2012 by Heather

I’m feeling really optimistic today, about everything.  Optimism on a Monday?  Whaaa?

Maybe it’s because I had my favorite breakfast sandwich this morning (egg, cheddar, & avocado).

Maybe it’s because I spent almost an hour on the phone with my sister talking about everything from her new tattoo to our parent’s divorce to her sweet girl turning 1 in a couple of months.  It’s those talks that keep me sane, I swear.

Maybe it’s because we finally got some stuff hung up on the walls in our new house, which automatically makes it feel a little more like home.

Maybe it’s because Parker has slept all night (except for that 5:30 snack he loves) in his crib for 4 nights in a row.

Maybe it’s because I can literally smell Fall coming right around the corner.  It is undoubtedly the very best time of the year.

Maybe it’s because I am looking forward to cranking up the ol’ sewing machine and figuring out how to make some curtains.  If I could only decide on some fabric… so many choices.

Maybe it’s because I finally decided to stop dwelling on the little things that can get me down.  Whenever I feel that dark cloud coming on, I sing a hymn or read a Bible verse.  I am going to try to start memorizing more scripture.  I have a pretty bad memory, but I figure if I can memorize every word to Ice Ice Baby, then I can surely remember some of God’s promises.

“Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward my selfish gain.” Psalm 119:36
