Also on a side note. Just wanted to tell my husband THANK YOU. You have truly been amazing this week. Thanks for washing, drying, hanging all the clothes, cooking, cleaning out the fridge, packing, staying home with the girls on your days off. Thank you.

Belle: Do you want me to say that bad word again?
Me: What bad word?
Belle: You know "I don't want to be your friend anymore" that one.
Belle and Emma were fighting over something.
Belle said "but I had it first"
I said "So!"
Belle said "Don't tell me so, that's a bad word. Do you want me telling you so?"
I said "You're right, I'm sorry"
Now I have to try and elimate that out of my vocabulary, that or find a substitute.

from A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles
(also quoted in the movie Akeelah and the Bee)
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

I only have 2 kids. 3 and 2 years old. Going to costco can be an adventure. The one thing that I like about Costco is that it's cart is big enough to put two kids in the front of the basket. I dread going by myself with the girls. This is how it goes. The girls love to play which is fine but their playing includes alot of screaming, hugging, hitting, laughing, loud talking, more screaming, some crying, etc.....
I on the other hand am trying to concentrate on the shopping, and being ADHD, it is very difficult for me to concentrate on something with alot of other distractions. So I get fustrated, and can't wait to get out of costco. I try to ignore them, try to confort them, try to tell them to be quiet, try to be firm, try to threaten, nothing works for a long period of time. Then I get fed up and leave.
Yesterday we went to costco as a family, and my husband got to experience what I experienced. Am I just letting my kids have too much fun in the store? It's not like they are running around like animals? How do your kids act in the grocery store?

The Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.

Anyways, I finished making my Christmas gifts. Finally. I can't say what it is, because my family reads this blog. But they are great. Tomorrow I can hopefully post pictures of my little angels.
Cast all your anxiety on God because he cares for you.

Still haven't closed on selling our house. The lender wanted another apprasial. That was done on Monday. It's Wednesday, and we still haven't heard anything. I have faith that God will work this out in his perfect timing.
The last I heard, we should be closing on our new house in the last week of December, I'm of course hoping for sooner.
Verse of this day:
I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?
