Shepherd James Bell, SJB, has been with us now for four weeks! To say it’s been a whirlwind would be an understatement. Lots of days have been trying and have resulted in lost patience or frustration or overwhelming anxiety. I’ve had my share of sob sessions. Some for good reasons, some probably for no reason …
Happy weekend! Hope you are enjoying it thus far. Here’s a little behind the scenes/day in the life post. Usually on Saturdays Pfeiffer has Spanish lessons at a local park and Jeff golfs but today we were expecting rain so we called the lessons off. Not surprising for my family, they chanced the weather and hoped it wouldn’t pour on them and headed for the golf course. My dad and his wife are in town and my husband and brother love golfing so I’m sure they’ll enjoy their time together. Pfeiffer and I are holding down the fort.
Pfeiffer enjoyed the tradition I have of celebrating her birthday all month long. She loved it! She’s continued to ask, “it’s my birthday month?”, in which of course I know how to tell her it’s October. But she then says, “it’s Issac’s birthday month?”, who is a friend in her class who must have an upcoming birthday hah She’s a hoot.
Celebrating Mother’s Day 2020 and rereading this great book my mom gave me when I was pregnant, Motherhood: 55 Reflections on What It Means to Be a Mom. I could highlight almost every quote in the book but picked a few to share with y’all today. Enjoy!
