Currently {April}

Listening: For the first time in three years, I am actually listening to and enjoying music again. That's not an entirely accurate statement. Hmmm... Let me try again. For the last three years, the only kind of music I could really listen to was worship music, and this has been a blessing. In my grief I found that secular music, even my favorite artists, triggered emotions I didn't want to feel - emotions that I had associated with Michael. So, I chose to listen almost entirely to worship music because it caused me to focus on God's love for me. I'm still listening to a lot of worship music, but I am enjoying country music and my favorite artists all over again. Here's a really cool cover of an old Hall & Oates' song (gotta love the ukelele!):

Loving: that it's Spring Break! We are spending it in Massachusetts with Mark and his family. We packed our winter wear. Their spring is like a southern California winter, or so I've gathered. ;)

Thinking: about ideas for Michaela's upcoming second birthday party. How can I make a Thomas & Friends party theme girly enough for my girly-girl? I've scouted out items on Etsy, and even the cutest stuff is boyish. Am I the only mommy with a little girl who is crazy for Thomas? I did find this, though:

I think I'll have to order that one. She'll probably want to wear it every day!

Wanting: to see the first signs of spring this month. I am looking forward to the first bloom of my roses in a few more weeks. 

Needing: to have a garage sale. I have written about this in a previous post, but I still haven't had one. The used baby gear is taking over any extra space we have here. It's gotta go!


  1. Second birthday!! how does that happen? Let me know if you need another banner. I am more than happy to make one for you!

  2. That's a really interesting note about how you're finally able to listen to music like you used to. Music is so powerful and you used the worship music like such good medicine. It's obviously done some remarkable healing. God is so good. Give Michaela a hug for me. :)
