A New Song I Love

To be completely honest, life is busy and crazy right now.  I might go so far as to say, difficult.

I have four babies who could benefit from one on one, constant supervision.  I am only one human.

So my life is a series of making sure everyone is safe, cleaning up poop, double checking on everyone again, cleaning another mess, checking on everyone, looking for someone, finding them, drinking a Coke, cleaning up another mess,  looking up/thinking up something good to do with our time, checking on everyone, cleaning up urine, you get the idea.

But I want to be more.

So much, much more.

When I’m gone, I want the world to be a better place cause I was in it.

I want to be known as a follower of Jesus.

I want there to be evidence that I actually followed Him.

So what can I do?

Money, I don’t have.

Time, I don’t have much.

My hands, I have two hands that are willing to work.

So I try to do whatever I can.  Whatever I see.  A meal here.  An evening spent in service there.

I wish it was more.  But it’s where I am right now.

So I love this song!!


Dream small
Don't bother like you've gotta do it all
Just let Jesus use you where you are
One day at a time
Live well
Loving God and others as yourself
Find little ways where only you can help
With His great love
A tiny rock can make a giant fall
Dream small

July So Far

A member of our ward opened up a shop and all three of my big girls are working there.  It’s a fun and supportive environment – I love the owners and love that the girls are working together.


One of the littles favorite activities this summer is playing in the water.  It’s so hot here – crazy hot.  So I got a big bucket and some little kitchen gadgets from the dollar store.  I fill up the bucket and they empty it!  :)


For this last term Becca has clinicals every weekend.  So we have the kids.  Getting this cutie dressed for church.


We have been trying to have our friend, Kathleen Satterwhite, over for forever!  Our schedules finally meshed – We watched Wreck It Ralph and then played Ticket to Ride (Joy won!)

We love this woman!  She has had such a wonderful impact on my babies!
