I am wife to a magnificent man and mother to five wonderful children. Three of my children were born in the Northwest and two were born thousands of miles away in Liberia, West Africa. Birthplace is no matter, all of my children were born in my heart. This is our journey.

Less than stellar

I have had some not so great things happen lately and it's making me feel less than competant. Humbling would be an understatement though being humbled can be a really good thing. But for me today I am going to list what I have accomplished so far so I can gain some perspective and let the other things go.

If you will indulge me here is my list -

Made homemade waffles for breakfast

Schooled 4 children

Made tomato sauce

Made homemade pizza for lunch

Unloaded and re-loaded dishwasher

Set out the garbage can, recycling can and yard debris container (yep, even that mundane task counts today)

Took care of an extra little guy

Settled disputes

Picked veggies from the garden

Today I am grateful for the grace that I have but do not deserve.

The "little" things sure do add up. You're doing a great job--keep it up! :)
