Ode to my Week: Thoughts

~Every night when I just sit down to blog, Wilder wanders into the kitchen, after Shawn has tucked him in, and asks Mommy will you snuggle with me?

And I go. Every time I go.
Someday he won't want or need that time with me. He won't request those 1,000 kisses or lullaby tunes. Getting time with my sweet Wilder is a highlight to my day. Oftentimes I fall asleep near his warm little body. I nestle into his hair that oftentimes smells of graham crackers and the outdoors.

I find serenity there.

~I guest posted for a friend about body image here.

~I am lonely for friends, a bit. Likely because I just returned from a conference where the women understood my heart for the Lord to use me in this whole blogging deal. I sometimes miss getting to catch a late nite chick flick or Panera cookie with a pal. Do you ever miss that? It's hard enough to snag a date with Shawn, let alone time with a friend.
~Shawn gave me flowers this week. I love them. We don't have fresh flowers around nearly enough.

~It pained me to tell my accountability partner I didn't have quiet time every day this week. I'm at  every other day right now. Lord, whip me into shape.
~The presentation at MAPS was about discipline. It made me regret those times I've been inconsistent. It gave me hope that it's not too late to try again.
~The winner of the 1st fall giveaway is Carrie Mugnano Robinson. Email me for details!
Please rest some this weekend. You won't regret it!

I feel lonely for friends quite often. Not every day, but I'm always missing my college friends that have since all spread out, all over the country. We keep in touch w/ emails and texts, but like you said… I miss just seeing a chick flick, grabbing coffee, etc! =\

I felt the same way after Influence going from a room stuffed to the brim with five girls to an empty house. But I think that God has blessed me with this online community while face to face friendships are being built where I am now.

I don't know if I got a chance to tell you, but you are so fun and dynamic in person! It was a joy to (briefly) meet you :)
