thinking about things

It's early Saturday morning and I am waiting for the coffee to brew. Therese is beside me playing with "crinkle cow", her favorite toy. The rest of the house is still asleep. I can hear the washing machine twirling it's first of many loads today.

I have plans to scour the house till it sparkles with cleanliness. We'll see how that pans out. I also have plans to declutter the little kid's room. It seems to me that room has the ability to multiply stuff. Truly, if I can accomplish these two seemingly simple tasks, I will be most pleased.

Oh, yes, Therese can now roll from her back to her tummy. She missed my milestones post by a day.

Now my baby is in my arms drifting off to sleep. I will lay her down soon and start breakfast for my family. Bacon, muffins, some fruit and cheese.

All these small little things don't seem important, but they are. I had a scare this past week and it made me stop and really examine myself. Unfortunately, there was a lot I want to change. I always think there is time to become a "better" person. But maybe not. Time is not a guarantee. We do not know when our hour will be. I need to be that better person today.


  1. Yum, what a delicious sounding breakfast. Hope you are doing alright! I am a "seize the day" kind of a person. It sometimes annoys my husband, but I prefer to get things done right away, or I think they will never happen. It's true, we never know when our (personal) world will end, so we should do everything we can to strive to be Saints today! I'm trying. Little by little.
