Happiness Journal

This morning I asked Alice if she wanted to go on an adventure and she promptly responded, “go see mice!”

This morning we stood for a long time and watched as the mice went round and round, cuddled with their friends and tried to break out of their cage. It was a grand adventure and made Alice’s and my heart very happy.

Last night I woke up and couldn’t get back to sleep. I miss my girls.

I decided, after an hour of prayer, what I needed was something to hold on to. I reached under my pillow and pulled out Honey, Anna’s favorite blanket. I wrapped my arms around it tightly and held it to my face.

I fell back to sleep.

This morning Alice was playing as I was getting ready for our day. I could hear her talking with her sister’s babies. She is such a good little Aunt. I walked quietly into her room not to disturb her world and found her wrapping Baby Mary in Honey, just like Anna used to do.

She looked up and smiled.

“Say Cheese!”

That is what I said right before I took this photo.

Their relationship makes me happy today.

Life has been extremely busy for our family the past few months. Starting next week everything slows down and I am taking a break and regrouping for the rest of the summer (more on that in a later post).

Until then, we are making the final preparation for the Love Rocks Run, which is happening this Saturday, and making sure these two are loved and cared for.

best friends l and a

If you would have asked me this time last year about these two I would have rolled my eyes and asked you if you wanted a dog.

Over the past month something amazing has happened in our house, Alice and Linus have become best friends. Watching this relationship blossom has been so beautiful, especially because I never thought it would happen.

Today over at Portland Moms Blog I share about their relationship and how this little girl has successfully tamed our wild beast.

 

Naptime

alice linus sleepingI had big plans to write a post during naptime today and then I saw the laundry that needed to be folded.

Priorities ❤

Naptime is over and we are now in the midst of family time, Tom just got home. It’s beautiful here in Oregon so I think there is a walk to the park in our future. I can’t wait for the day I say that we will be walking to Anna and Abby’s Yard.

Soon ❤

Today I have a post over at Portland Moms Blog so let us just pretend I wrote that at naptime.

Deal? ❤
