Paige turned 2 months yesterday. She started looking cross eyed at her hands in front of her face, and if she could talk I think she'd say, "What are these? They feel like they are attached to me!" She has started cooing, smiling, and laughing by making a little coughing sound. She is getting more lovable as the days go by (even though I didn't know it was possible to love her more.)
Met up with a friend from the past today. She moved away for a few years, but even before that we had lost touch. I've gone through similar situations with some of my other friends: we are very close and things are wonderful and then for whatever reason (honestly I don't even remember anymore) we drift apart for a little while -- only to find each other again. I hope this is the case with Cassie. We've had such good times! She really is a true friend, with whom I've shared a lot of my life. I think maybe I had some growing up to do, and that's why we lost touch. It was so nice to see her, her husband, her parents. Nice to be in their home. Nice to be welcomed like the last time I saw them was just yesterday, and not years ago. They are wonderful people and amazing friends.
I don't have much to say, but I wanted to get something down to remember today. The weather here in Oregon is breath taking! 70s, sunny, blue sky, colorful leaves. I love this time of year!
A few things I'm grateful for:
1) My husband. I don't know how single moms do it! I couldn't! He is an encouragement, he makes me laugh, he provides for us, he loves us. I'm so grateful for him!
2) My babies. It is so hard to have 2 kids...the hardest thing I've done. But the blessing outweigh the hardships, and I'm doing my best to be present in each moment with them.
3) Chai tea. (life saver every morning!)
4)Autum. Did I already mention that I love this time of year? There's something about just walking outside that makes me smile. It smells so good.
5) My washer and dryer. I know that a lot of people don't have the luxury of owning their own machines. I am so thankful for mine!
What are you thankful for?
