Song For a 21st Century Child

Song For a 21st Century Child
By "The Motivated Mom"

Mother, oh Mother, check your inbox
text back your friend, talk, talk, talk,
notifications and friend requests, too,
try to go viral with a hit on youtube.
Where is the mother who isn’t updating?
She’s out in the backyard, blissfully playing.

Oh, I’ve grown shiftless as I dislike to.
(giggling, smiling, cuddling, too).
E-mails are waiting, I forgot how toTweet
(running and skipping and hide-and-go-seek).
My blog isn’t updated and my followers are blue,
and my password needs changing to something new
but I'm playing pirates and kissing boo-boos.
Look at those toes! Aren't they just cute?
(giggling, smiling, cuddling, too).

Facebook and Twitter will wait til tomorrow,
for kiddos grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow.
So turn off the iPad, silence the beep.
I’m snuggling my baby for babies don’t keep.

I really love this poem, it is so true. My little ones grow up too fast to let it pass by while I am on the computer or the phone!!!

Cars, Stray Hair Bows, and Binkies

I know I don't often post on here, but this time I wanted to:) The other day, while at the store, I was looking through my purse and found a small match box car, a stray hair bow, and a binky:) It made me stop and think for a moment. I am so thankful for the children that the Lord has given me! At times I need a break and they seem to drive me a little crazy:) I love them with everything within me. I would say if anyone can spend all day, everyday with a 4 year old, a 2 year old, and a 1 year old and not need a break here and there is amazing! LOL My children are truly my pride and joy! They bring such happiness everyday! They remind me to look at the little things, enjoy the little things, and rediscover the world from the view of a little One! I am continually amazed that God has allowed me to be a Mommy to 3 precious souls, and I look forward to seeing how our little children will grow and become the Men and Lady God has for them to be. I pray that they will always know how much I love them, and how much more the Lord loves them. I pray that they will grow to love the Lord with all of their hearts. And that one day they will be able to look down and see a car, a stray bow, or a binky of their child and know exactly how I feel for them!

A Confession

I must confess, I only keep my blog so I can read everyones blog:) I love being able to get on here and read what is going on in everyone else lives. You all lead such interesting lives and I find joy in reading what is happening over in your neck of the woods. I love to read the great ideas you have for homeschooling, menus, and life in general. Life in our family is very busy with babies, toddlers, and deputation, I just am unable to get on here as much as I would like. So I thank you for letting me into your lives through your blog!

A Thanksgiving Poem

Twas the night of Thanksgiving,
But I couldn't sleep.
I tried counting backwards,
I tried counting sheep.

The leftovers beckoned
The dark meat and white,
But I fought the temptation
With all of my might.

Tossing and turning with anticipation,
The thought of a snack became infatuation.
So, I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door,
And gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.
I gobbled up turkey, and buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots, and beans and tomatoes.

I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
'Til all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.
I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky,
With a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie.
But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees...
Happy eating to all~ pass the cranberries, Please.

May your stuffing be tasty,
May your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes 'n gravy have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious.
May your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs!!!

Praying everyone has a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!!!!

Purple Roses

Yesterday my WONDERFUL husband bought me these beautiful purple roses. The purple roses were the center of decorations for our wedding. I love these roses and they are very hard to find. Most of the time they are not in stores and if you go to a florist you have to order them to get them in.
Well Hubby went to the store to pick some things up for me and bought these beautiful roses just because he saw them:) Thank you so much for roses My Love, I love them and you so much!!!!

Summer Update

Where to begin? So much has happened this summer it is hard to start.
Well let me start by saying that we were so blessed and happy to find out that in the beginning of November we will be welcoming Baby #3 into our family. We are so excited to be having another little boy! Now Little Guy will have someone to wrestle with in a few years and can let his sister be a girly girl:)
The next thing is that we have safely moved all of our belongings into a beautiful place where we can call home while we are on deputation. speaking of deputation, it has been slow but good. God has blessed in many ways and He always meets our every need and many of our desires! so far we have been to many churches in MI, NY, MA, NJ, IN, and KY this summer. We have gone with the desire to be a blessing to the people there and in turn have been blessed by them!!! We are also blessed that in going to all those churches people are seeing the need for Gospel preaching churches in the western side of Canada. God is so good and I could never even begin to tell you all he has done for us!
The last thing is we are getting ready to head home to get ready to welcome the baby into our family.
Since deputation requires that my husband use the computer to make calls to Pastors during the day, it is not often that I am able to get on here to write anything. I usually get on long enough to read what everyone else is doing with their families. But I will try in the next few days to post pictures of our summer adventures for all to see:) Till then I must go!
