Mother’s Day was filled with great joy for me!
I DID NOT READ THE 3 BOOKS I INTENDED TO READ….LOL!
BUT I DID:
Have a glorious prayer morning…..
An invigorating walk/run with hubby….
A heartfelt encounter with Jesus at Mass….
Lots and lots of texts from family and friends…
A fun family movie time….
Cleaned up my Pinterest boards….
Created some really fun “sushi” rolls…(I promise to share the recipes later this week)….
Called and visited with my mom…
Wrote some great inspiring ideas for this summer, fall, next year…
Studied a bit about a modesty/chastity program I am honored to help our Diocese Family Life office put into place…
Sat out in the beautiful evening fresh air….
Read through my newspaper while watching Elementary with hubby…
Had one more cup of tea as I read a bit right before sleep….
What more could I have asked for from such an amazing day!
This week is destined for greatness I just feel it!
God is beyond awesome!
Don’t get me wrong…I am not ignorant nor am I naive enough to think life is all peachy and no struggles. Yet I truly believe age brings you wisdom….it should anyways…and it brings you peace….if you start tapping into your inner “Mary” more than your inner “Martha”.
I have learned to truly smile through my tears.
I have learned to not live in regrets or what ifs.
I have learned to see the AMAZING woman God has created when I look in the mirror…inside and out!
And best of all I have learned to LOVE every challenge….mind body soul…..with great passion.
How and why!?
The more I reflect on the GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT and pray for them….as well as the fruits of the HOLY SPIRIT….I have found greater and greater love, peace, and mercy for self…but especially for ALL around me!
I have learned to live more and more in GODS WILL THAN MINE…..thus my Mother’s Day might not have been how I set it out to be….but it was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined because it was lived in GOD’S WILL…..and that is GLORIOUS!
blessings and hugs dear readers….family….friends…
