Thursday's with Tiffiny

Wow!! Another week has flown by. I can't believe we are in May already. It seems just like we just had snow. Time goes by so fast. My days are long. VERY long...maybe it is because I have not left the house since Sunday....I am sure that is why my days run into each other. I am sure that is why I feel tired. Tired from what!?! That my friends is the million dollar question. I mean really, what do I do all day that makes it so I feel drained? Oh, well one day they will all move out and I will be wanting them to call me or come by and they will be busy and tired. So everyday I get to hug them...well not the older boys..they run and hide, until they want money.

So here it is..........Thursday's with me!

I am Thankful for...

My kids. I know...I know..I complain alot about the mundane tasks of taking care of them everyday...all day with very little me time. I could not imagine what it would be like to go through Mother's day and not have them. I could not imagine the pain I would feel if I could have not gotten pregnant. Many, many women out there are trying. Trying to bring a life into this world and they can't. They long for the love of a child. They long for chaos and the blessing that each child brings. Some mom's have lost their child while others maybe don't know where their child is. I could not imagine the grief they are going through. I have a heavy heart just thinking of those moms. My prayer's are for all those women who when Mother's day rolls around they don't have the same joy or blessing's that so many of us get.

I'm listening to... Carter yelling from his bed...he doesn't want ot have a morning nap. I really need him to. He is walking crabby teething disaster...He only has 4 teeth so I can see 2 more coming through along with back ones.

What's for Dinner Tonight... Taco's...every is easy and cheap and I always have the stuff on hand.

Missing.... I am not missing anything right now...well maybe my mind!! Jeremy is leaving for his missions trip very soon. I am sure I will miss him along with the kids. 10 days is a very long time for a child and a mom! I am not sure how it will go with him gone. probably just fine. I worry. I worry about him and his safety. My mind wonders....He will be traveling for 20 hours!! I hope in all of his travels he finds that missing Boy Scout Shirt.

** THANK YOU! to everyone who gave what they could to help cover the cost of this missons trip. We are 360.00 away from reaching our goal. We know that God is faithful and will provide everything we need during this time. Thank you for everyone who has been praying for him and for us. We ask that you continue to pray for God's protection and wisdom as he shares God's Divine Love for them and for us. Once again...THANK YOU to every family member and friend who supported us. Much love!!

Mmmmm. Tacos!
Hope you have a great day and feel more rested. I know what you mean about being exhausted but not really knowing why.
I think its this 24 hour job we know, motherhood?

we're very excited about jeremy's trip. jordan is great! we love the middle east. be prepared for it to be very hot. we were there in may. our plane landed early morning and it was very windy and already in the high 90s! any time the wind blows you know it's going to be a hot day b/c it comes from the dessert. he'll want clothes that are very light weight and wick away the sweat. the shawarma's are yummy too. we crave them every so often. can't wait to hear about his time! =)
