Prayer walk

I woke up pretty crabby this morning...with not a lick of patience to be seen. Although I was pretty productive this morning, yesterday was a complete wash with two cranky crabby kids. So anyway, I decided that I would take the kids on a prayer walk this morning so that I can get exercise and pray. Well, then Chester got excited so I had to take him. At 9:00am I had the entire brood bundled up and ready to go. It started off with me just confessing all my junk to Jesus...After that, Noah started chatting with me. I was reminded of how precious my kids are. We had a lovely chat about birds and trees and everything in between. Then we played at the park. The whole walk did a lot for my peace of mind. I came home feeling a ton better. Thanks God for meeting me this morning. Hopefully I can keep the positive attitude alive for the rest of the day.

I'm meeting with a friend for lunch. We are planning on a silent lunch (signing only). My sign skills are so rusty, I'll be lucky if I can communicate clearly at all. But, practice is good and I need to get back into the game. My hope is to do this at least once a month so that I remember at least the basic skills of signing.

So here's to a better day. Peace out!

I love the picture of you and the kids and the dog chugging along to the park and Jesus showing up :) That is the definition of a blessing.
