I still just want simplicity...

My life has been nothing like 'simple' in the past few months, but my desires haven't changed and I believe it's still the kind of life I believe the Lord wants for me. To simply love him with all my heart, to serve him by loving and caring for my family and others. Erin asked me this morning if I had new year's resolutions. I have always hated that 'doomed to fail' resolution-making exercise, but reflecting and praying and following a path the Lord leads you on... I want to return to that focus of simplicity.

Outside my window... the sun is shining and wind is blowing, a warm and windy South Texas winter.
I am thinking... that I am ready to go see my darling husband at the rehab hospital (waiting on the girls to be ready).
I am thankful for... my husband's life and the wonderful children God gave me. They encouraged and held me through a tough time last night.
From the kitchen... it is quiet and fairly clean. No cooking going on today and not all that much good cooking going on for the past three months.
I am wearing my baggy jeans and a sequined T, ready to leave.
I am creating... when I have time to sit and do nothing, I have been hand stitching some precut hexagons to make a table cover for my table. It was my mom's table and I have no idea where she got it, but it's supposed to be very old. But... it was taller than she liked so years ago she cut off the balls of the feet...LOL... worthless to collectors, but I don't care. I love it cause it was Momma's.
I am going... to see my darling husband
I am reading... the Word, a fiction book to Allen called Kingdom For Sale, trying to start reading several other books, including Twilight that my youngest daughter insists is a must read.
I am hoping... God will finish the miracle in my husband and return him to me.
I am hearing... silly cartoons.
Around the house... the girls are supposed to be getting ready to leave... oh, and I really need to clean. The dust is getting thick. I want the Christmas stuff down first so I can give it a good cleaning.
One of my favorite things... watching old series of Gilmore Girls with my girls in the evening with supper.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Back and forth to rehab, cleaning house
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Hugs to you and the girls. Hope all is well today with Allen. You have our thoughts and prayers. I remember that table and no matter if collectors don't want it, I know it means a lot to you.
