Zach started Mother's Day Out today. ; )
He was not a happy camper when he woke up.
As Z was eating breakfast, I was thinking several things...
I can really get a lot done when I wake up an hour before he does!
Why didn't I pack his backpack and get this lunch together last night?
Will Z take his nap? Sit at a table with other kids while he eats his lunch?
Most importantly...what will I do?
I have only looked forward to this day for months. ; ) It was going to be just us girls ~ Reese and me. My first thought was to come home and cry all morning by myself. BUT I was feeling ok, so I wanted to be productive and get out. I also had plans to meet some friends for lunch (which was perfect and just what I needed!). GOD is so good to always know what we need, isn't He?
Z & me
When I put his backpack on him, he actually fell backwards! It really wasn't that heavy, he is just not used to carrying anything. ; )
This afternoon I came home to cheery bouquet of flowers from a friend. The card said, "When I think of Reese I think of bright and beautiful."
Couldn't have said it better myself.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:28, 38 - 39
