spring break

The kids had spring break last week and boy did our family need a break. We took the kids to Ocean City MD and it was fun. We fit a lot into 3 days. We left monday am and headed over the Chesapeake bay bridge tunnel..we got out and walked around on one of the stops on the bridge. We headed over to Assateague to see the wild ponies, we saw a few and it had gotten pretty cold so we headed to the hotel. We checked into the hotel, got ready for dinner, and headed out for what we thought was Mexican. Well it was american mexican. We left there and went to play putt putt. Our hotel was right in fornt of the a big park and baseball field. we played there for awhile and the kids rode their scooters. From there we went back to the hotel and headed to the indoor pool and hot tub. Tuesday...beach day. We planned to go to the boardwalk and beach area. We had fun, rented a bike for 5 and rode it up and down the boardwalk for over an hour. We had a lot of fun. Stopped and shopped a but, played in the kite store and finally headed to the beach. We played in the sand, ate pizza on the beach and had fun. It was windy and the water was cold, but we didnt care. We left that afternoon and went to the hotel to go eat a good seafood dinner and swim again. The girls and their dad swam and grayson and i watched tv and packed for the next day. Wed we were up and out to Baltimore. We went to see charm city cakes..that was really cool. Olivia and I love that show. We then went to the childrens museum and the kids had a lot of fun. This was pretty much about them, but we needed to focus on them and we did. We went for a walk to the water and then ate dinner and headed home. A little long in the car, but a much needed fun time with the whole family!

how can it be..

I sit home alone for a couple of hours. Gray and daddy are at a friend of grays bday party. The girls are headed to see Taylor Swift in concert with Mimi and Pop....their favorite Christmas present ever!

I sit here and try to fold clothes, straighten up, I even tried to sit a look at a magazine...but it just doesnt seem right. I should be doing things to make me better, studying my Bible, exercising, or something. But no i sit here to write some thoughts (electronically).

A college friend passed away this week. Kylee was amazing, in every since of the word. Now when I first met her, I truly felt her never ending energy was weird. It just seemed unnatural for someone to be that energetic all the time. But she was....she was a great athlete (we played volleyball together), great student, and wonderful example of who and what a true woman of God looked like. Her energy and her spirit was from the Lord. Her love for the Lord led her in every motion.

I should try to be more like Kylee, not just her, but more of a Godly woman for my girls to see and follow. Now great, strong women are who have always been around me. My family is full of loud, strong, thoughtful , caring women! I am proud of those women who raised me to be who I am. Now after 33 yrs I need to refocus on how God is raising me. He is wanting to help me develop into this great woman of God, but am I allowing that. I used to be strong, no one could defeat me. But that i soon learned was not the truth. Well at least i needed to become stronger in some areas, and weak in others.

As I have ventured on in this life, but I am praying for strength to be a follower of Christ, not a leader of self.
