Closed down the Y. Never thought that’d be me. Prayer & perseverance are a powerful combination.

Break The Cycle.

Dinner.

That run.

This marathon.

This adoption.

Our Jesus.

"I have this theory. You ready? So we are on earth for a finite amount of time. And time is a manmade perception. And we perceive time passing through change— seasons, aging, things like that. So to expand our time on earth, we must incite as much change in our lives as possible.""Interesting. I haven’t heard that before.""That’s because I made it up!"

I LOVE this. And my phone autocorrected love to live which is also incredibly true. My way to savor my baby’s first year of life was to do lots of things out of our routine so I could have stronger memories of each stage. I’d say it added a little more time but not enough ;).

Even when you’re exhausted

There is possibly not a better feeling in the world than a baby completely melted in your arms and laying on your chest, limbs limp but still wrapped around you. That feeling of overwhelming trust, love, and reliance when all day they’ve shown their independence. The connectedness. I think this blog may turn into lessons God is teaching me through parenting. That seems important enough to write down.

But am I really back?

I should start blogging again. Went back for a little looksie at some old posts and some were pretty entertaining. And since I am really bad about making yearly photo books I feel like it might be nice to have some memories recorded somewhere.

How to talk to your daughter about her body, step one: don’t talk to your daughter about her body, except to teach her how it works.

Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight.

If you think your daughter’s body looks amazing, don’t say that. Here are some things you can say instead:

“You look so healthy!” is a great one.

Or how about, “you’re looking so strong.”

“I can see how happy you are – you’re glowing.”

Better yet, compliment her on something that has nothing to do with her body.

Don’t comment on other women’s bodies either. Nope. Not a single comment, not a nice one or a mean one.

Teach her about kindness towards others, but also kindness towards yourself.

Don’t you dare talk about how much you hate your body in front of your daughter, or talk about your new diet. In fact, don’t go on a diet in front of your daughter. Buy healthy food. Cook healthy meals. But don’t say “I’m not eating carbs right now.” Your daughter should never think that carbs are evil, because shame over what you eat only leads to shame about yourself.

Encourage your daughter to run because it makes her feel less stressed. Encourage your daughter to climb mountains because there is nowhere better to explore your spirituality than the peak of the universe. Encourage your daughter to surf, or rock climb, or mountain bike because it scares her and that’s a good thing sometimes.

Help your daughter love soccer or rowing or hockey because sports make her a better leader and a more confident woman. Explain that no matter how old you get, you’ll never stop needing good teamwork. Never make her play a sport she isn’t absolutely in love with.

Prove to your daughter that women don’t need men to move their furniture.

Teach your daughter how to cook kale.

Teach your daughter how to bake chocolate cake made with six sticks of butter.

Pass on your own mom’s recipe for Christmas morning coffee cake. Pass on your love of being outside.

Maybe you and your daughter both have thick thighs or wide ribcages. It’s easy to hate these non-size zero body parts. Don’t. Tell your daughter that with her legs she can run a marathon if she wants to, and her ribcage is nothing but a carrying case for strong lungs. She can scream and she can sing and she can lift up the world, if she wants.

Remind your daughter that the best thing she can do with her body is to use it to mobilize her beautiful soul.

Dear Baby: Everly and Arlo, Just a small thought today. Sometimes, I still can’t...

Everly and Arlo,

Just a small thought today. Sometimes, I still can’t believe that you exist- That all the cells of your body can be traced to your father and me. That your flesh came from my flesh. That those precious fingers and lips and eyelashes first grew within me. It seems beyond…

Wish I could write this well. This has definitely been how I’ve been feeling recently.

Well today I baked cookies, made lemonade, did laundry, worked out, went to Publix, had a dr appt, and took a nap (not in that order) all to distract myself. Next step is to keep going on the quilt. These are perhaps the longest days of my life.

It’s like trying to fall asleep on Christmas Eve…I can’t do it. Way too exciting. Guessing this might be a struggle every night for the next week or two….

I have learned that things are more filtered IN my head then they actually come out. For example - in my head I really only want to ask someone a question. I re-read the email and it somehow came out a demand to do something. I used to think I just didn’t have a filter…which is fine…but I am realizing it is a worse problem…my mouth is meaner then my head. I think this is why people look at me funny a lot. How do I fix this?

Here’s a way to make life exciting. Host a 40 person party for your husbands birthday & the very next week host both sides of your family for Christmas. Not only am I considering putting my bed in the kitchen but I think I need a third job. Merry Christmas Eve!
