sometimes i think...

...God gives us signs.
because, this morning i looked out the window into our backyard and saw 6 bright ruby red cardinals...sitting in the snowy tree.
now ya don't just see those red birds everyday, and ya don't always see them in packs of i'm chalkin up this rare occasion as a sign from God that today is going to be a beautiful day :)
you is that lovely time of year called parent-teacher conferences.
we had them after school from 4:30 to 8:30 last night.
and we have them again from 11am-8:00 tonight.

not until 11:00....11:00am, people!!! that means i am sitting in my warm house eating honey toast...and looking at red birds. and its only 9:30am! i could totally get used this!

when i am asked to go to attend a conference, it's not a 'nice''s usually for some behavior problem or suspicion of negative parenting that could use some tips... so conferences are usually pretty yucky for me. But, i'm ready to do this. AND....i have so much grace for all those teachers, having back to back conversations with parents. it SO wears you out.

ok.........gotta go blow dry my hair......... i decided that i shouldn't have day 3 hair for conferences, time to get professional :)

    I love taking in all beautiful things God puts right in front of us every day. Even though, I know we often are too busy rushing around and 'getting through' our days to truly appreciate them. Thank you for this post and the reminder to take in all the wonderful things, no matter how big or small, in each day.

    P.S. I love this song, Something Beautiful - I have been using your blog for my music playlist at work :)
