A Bright Start to the Week

Yippeee!!!! I woke up at 6:10 this morning to the beautiful realization that I had not been woken up between 4 and 5am by little Benny Boo. What a blessing. I promptly hit snooze and rolled over for another 20 minutes of sleep in celebration.

I can't even describe how smiley this one event has made me this morning. You'd think it was my birthday. I'm having coffee, quiet time, granola and peace and it's 7:15...no pitter patter of three-year-old feet down the hallway yet either. God is hard at work romancing me this morning for whatever reason.

I placed a library hold on the first five books of the Little House on the Prairie series this morning. I read this book-centric blog and she mentioned today that her first book crush was on Almanzo Wilder and I was like, OMG ME TOO!!, then raced to our library's web site to put a hold on those books so I can re-visit the good times. Who knew Manly was such a looker??

And rounding out my already-amazing start to the week - I'm eagerly anticipating this weekend when we head up to the North Georgia mountains with our always-entertaining group of sophomores from Buckhead Church. I'm practically giddy at the thought. The weather is looking absolutely perfect - sunny days in the low 70s and 50s at night. A saint of a woman has VOLUNTEERED to come to our home and stay with our THREE little tinies ALL WEEKEND LONG so that we can go hang out with our students and be insanely blessed ourselves by the time away, the incredible atmosphere of Sharptop Cove, the space to spend time with God and (of course) the delicious food that I will not be cooking, serving or cleaning up. Mamas, you should really get involved with student ministry - these retreats are THE BEST.

Hope you're having a happy Monday!
