Sorry I have been a bit MIA this week. Recovering and catching up with the family after my weekend retreat with the Luna Chix (re-cap to come).
How is it Wednesday already!!! I’ll take it though….counting down the days to a little bit of family time this weekend. I am 98% sure we are going to drive up to NY to visit my dad in Brooklyn. The hubby can’t go due to work so that is the 2% chance of us not going. We will see…I will keep you posted.
Today’s word: FAITHFUL
I have to admit when I saw today’s word the first thing I thought about was a faithful dog which is funny because I don’t even have a dog…I am a cat person. Anyhooo, it did get me thinking about my day and daily activities and the things that I am Faithful about.
I am Faithful to:
-I wake up and give thanks and grace for waking up in the morning;
-I wake up the kiddies;
-I kiss and tell them I love them;
-I workout before the family wakes up (most days…);
-I make nutritious meals for myself and the family (they do love their not so healthy treats as we all do);
-I make a conscious effort to be friendly and kind;
-I smile (someone may really need that);
-I work hard;
-I get the kiddies to their activities (how have I become a soccer and gymnastics mom?!?!…but I love it!)
-I read to the kiddies at night and say prayers with them and again when I got to sleep.
As I type this out, I recognize that there are a few things I need to be more faithful :
-Checking in on my mom and dad. They both are retired and not in great health. I need to be more mindful of that and check in on them more;
-Kiss and tell my husband that I love him. Even if there are days that are harder than others;
Religiously, this Lent, I have been Faithful in not having any sweets….which to some may not be anything but to me has been a great struggle. In most years, by the 1st week, I am ok and Easter sneaks up on me. For some reason, this year has been really tough and this really has me thinking about my sugar need. I don’t want to say that I am addicted (that is such a powerful word) but I do have a dependence on sugar and I really want to get a hold and understanding of it but don’t want to have to give up my faithful gummi bears and swedish fish…..the struggle is real!!!
I have not been as faithful in my 40 days of devotion as I had intended for Lent. God knows my heart but I really would have liked to have completed this. I tend to have difficulty in anything that I have to do every day….I am just not a steak kind if girl I guess.
What are you faithful in? Do you celebrate Lent?
