tired and thankful

so it's the end of the night, it was a very long but fabulous day...   I'm amazed, though I'm not sure why, that when I align my heart with Christ things just seem to be...  well.... good.

Lovely Saturday rainy morning.  Nails, then off to IKEA to buy a new kitchen table... and I walked out with a lot of things, but not a kitchen table.  Got my backpack for my trips!!!   Nuts.  Then we had our Bowling Fundraiser, and it was so amazing.  It may seem silly but I really was happy that people liked the baskets I made.  You should have heard the little muffins who won the cupcake basket just say the word 'cupcake' ohmyword they were SOOO cute.  I bought some tickets, and won a shellac manicure and gave it to someone I loved!  God has met our needs for our trip, the well, the trips, it's all set!  AMAZING!  we look at a large (very) need and think 'holy moly' and God just brings it.  It's one of those things that I am not surprised at about His provision but I'm always in awe.

Then off to the celebration of two of my very favorite muffins.  It seems like just yesterday that we got them, but they turned 3 this year!  What does my heart say about them?  Dear Levi and Judah... your Auntie Margie loves you so much.  Your laugh makes the cares of the world dissipate, your smooches make me feel like God loves me so much because your love and His are unconditional.  Your sweet cheeks are just so kissable!  My heart seems to explode with joy when you are around, and I look at your pictures at my desk when things are crazy, and I remember that all is right with the world.  I just super love you and can't imagine life without you, and I'm glad I don't have to.

I took two of the most beautiful muffins to the movies, we went to see the Lorax but they were a little frightened some of the 'dark' moments of movies, so we left.  I really wanted to see it... but little hearts are more important than seeing a movie.

I got my Spanish software today when I got home, and I cleaned up around the house.  And my new raised flower bed is now in place and I'm so excited about it! It's gonna be AWESOME!!!!!!! I'll take a pic tomorrow!

I'm super tired...  going to dream about some work I am thinking about having done in the upstairs bathroom :)

Good night! Love from the center of who you are!

You have so much to talk over in your blog :) (and I love it!) How exciting about your new raised garden bed (I saw the pic on FB this morning). I'm anxious to see how it fills out with veggies/flowers.

Hugs .. and you're amazing.
