i apologize for being m.i.a. for so long! being pregnant affected my energy levels more than i could ever have anticipated, & now we have a sweet little two-month-old that keeps me busy around the clock. being a “real” mom now adds alot of material to my being a student of life. but i could write volumes on that. later. too much has happened over the past several months to catch up on all at once, so i thought i’d revive my monthly top 10 to at least catch up on the past one month.
10. books on my nightstand:
>> eclipse by stephanie meyer
>> northanger abbey by jane austen
>> believing God by beth moore
>> girl at the end of the world by elizabeth esther
9. song stuck in my head:
>> “raise your glass” by pink [except i’ve changed alot of the words so i can sing it to & about my baby girl!]
8. habit i’m working on:
>> stealing away time for prayer every morning, midday, & evening
7. can’t-do-without accessory:
>> my “flow” necklace, to remind me to take it one day at a time
6. must-see tv [or netflix]:
>> supernatural [currently working my way back through all the seasons. how many times does dean die?!]
5. annual goal i’m most focused on:
>> reading, reading, & more reading [going for 42+ books this year]
4. what i’m saving money for:
>> a pottery class [learning to use a pottery wheel is one of my 2014 goals.]
3. latest addiction:
>> dr. pepper, again.
>> instaquote. coolest app ever!
2. most looking forward to:
>> holy week — i love attending mass, & for the first time my church is hosting a good friday service with other area churches. plus, my parents are coming to visit!
1. heavy on my heart:
>> the recent world vision rollercoaster & the disunity within the Church [not on issues so much as on how we treat one another regarding our disagreements]
i encourage you to take the time to reflect on what’s fun/important/happening in your life right now, too. reflection is important!
