"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

Favor of Your Words!

Hi everyone! 
Hey, would you do me a favor if 
you have some extra time?


Our oldest daughter
  and family moved
to a new city in Pennsylvania last summer. 
I have always lived 
in the same Indiana county
most all of my life
and have lived in this 
same home for over 30 years.

Our daughter, Jessica
doesn't live close by our family
  and she is a young wife and mommy. 
They love their new residence
but there are times 
 that I know she wishes
and I wish that I could go over
and tell her to go out and do something
just for her
and I watch the kiddos so she could enjoy some 
quiet time by herself.
I know she yearns for this too.

Do you remember those days
of being a young mommy?
Wishing you had some coffee quiet time to yourself?

Recently, Jessica wrote
this post on her blog.
 My mind went back to those mommy days of 
how hard it was to feel you were doing it all well 
(trying desperately to be Superwoman)
and  still find time for yourself.

I really didn't have
lots of words of wisdom,
but knew that
I could ask my blogging friends
to do something really special 
that I know
would encourage her.
Woman are so good at doing
that encouraging thing for one another. 
You certainly have for me so many times.

If you get a moment, 
would you click over to her blog

and give 
her some encouragement and 
even some laughs about
this time and how
it shall pass
so quickly in her life?
(no pressure, because I know how busy life is)

Thank YU
my dear encouraging
blogging buddies!

Will pop in and visit her
tomorrow, LeeAnn.
Wish I were close by and
could drop in and hold her
babies while she
showers and shops
and leave her with a clean house,
supper bubbling on the stove
and her chocolate stash refurbished:)
Instead, I'll pray.
And write some love.
Don't worry, mamabird.
You're little birds are safe
and tucked under the shelter
of HUGE wings that cover and keep
them all.
