I know that I am incredibly blessed. I have a hard-working husband, three energetic children, a loving family, friends, and so many more blessings. I have found though that if I do not take the time to count the blessings that I lose sight of how blessed that I am. I get bogged down in the daily tasks of life, and I lose sight of being thankful. This is the reason that my soul needs the opportunity to pause and look back on the previous days and weeks and count blessings. If I don’t stop to count these moments, they will slip on by without being acknowledged. I don’t want that to happen. I want to look back next month, next year, ten years from now, and remember what this season of my life was like, by reading my blessing list from this time in my life. What a gift that I can give my children, if I can show them what I was thankful for concerning them, when each of them was little. This is the reason that I am thankful for this Five Minute Friday prompt, and the opportunity to gather with others and think about what I have learned in June.*
This month I have learned 8 is great! My Princess turned 8. I can’t believe that the last eight years passed so quickly. I am so thankful for my spunky, artistic, dramatic, beautiful, firstborn daughter
I learned that sometimes a day at the park with my kiddos and a friend is exactly what I need. My friend took my kiddos and me to their favorite park. When we made the park plans my children knew exactly what park they wanted to go to, and my friend agreed with their idea.
I have learned that I loved being on the launch team for #52commands. My children and I have enjoyed using this resource 52 Commands of Jesus for Children in our homeschool. This was my first ever time on a book launch team, and it was so much fun. You can check it out here.
I loved watching my girlies singing in VBS Sunday at church.
I learned that my Princess loves to experiment in the kitchen. My Princess experimented in the kitchen and made a breakfast concoction that was a cross between a pancake and cake.
We had a lot of fun swimming in the pool during the month of June, especially on the days that the thermometer read 100+.
I have had the opportunity to start reading a couple of books that I hope will encourage me in one of my most important roles- being my children’s mother.
Speaking of books, I have also been blessed by a blogging friend is sending me Put the Disciple in Discipline. I love reading books that encourage me in this motherhood journey.
