The franklin mountains and the Mexican poppies.

I realize this is like weeks late, but wanted to get it on the record anyway.

This March was a quiet month. It was filled with caring for sick kiddos and only doing the basics. I used to feel like being unproductive meant I was worthless, but this time around, I'm embracing the fact that I can't do everything and caring for little people and myself is the most important. It's an everyday battle, but my goal is to 

Things I want to remember: 

Caedon in front of his birthday banner.

Caedon in front of his birthday banner.

  • Caedon walking me in circles around the house because all he wants to do is walk, but can't do it without a finger. (Walk in the room and he crawls up your leg and grabs your finger. Then takes you wherever he feels like.)
  • The gorgeous March weather. 70s, sunny, a great month for being outdoors and watching Hannah play outside and learn at rapid speed. 
  • Caedon's first birthday. 
  • Hannah's wish this month is for everyone to be a princess just like her. (The boys can be princes...)

As far as the things I've learned–it's mostly things I'm still chewing on. There wasn't a ton of thinking time when all I really wanted to do is sleep. But there were still some really valuable lessons, I just need to chew on them some more..

 

My March nuggets:

  • The expression of love is faith. 
  • True freedom brings a response.
  • If you love something--set it free.
  • Thankfulness should compel us to love the people around us. 
  • Be a student of the lord. 
  • Intimacy doesn't happen in a crowded room. 
  • Free people still have rules. 
  • I am not guilty. 
  • Choose the life you really want. 
  • Sin is serious business. 
  • Feed the spirit, starve the sin.
  • Victory can be had.
