Thanking God on Friday's

~I am thankful for...the rare breaks in parenthood. My mom took care of Noah alot when she was down this week, giving me a much needed mini-vacation from the mommy-duties. It's not that I don't love being a mother...that's the farthest from true. But, when you go into motherhood [especially when you are at home all day] you don't realize that every single waking moment is spent at the beck and call of your child. Feeding, Changing, cleaning up behind them...it's exhausting. Those little breaks in the everyday routines are so wonderful. I actually slept past 5:30 both days she was here.

~I am thankful for...those photo opportunities. This morning Josh went and got Noah out of bed, changed his diaper and gave him his juice. Josh layed down on the floor with him and turned on some TV...thinking Noah was playing innocently behind him. I was still half-asleep but kept hearing something rattling. I sat up and, much to my surprise, found Noah sitting on the side of the bed eating a ding-dong. [Note: this chocolate treat was UNOPENED...he managed to do that on his own.] It was so funny. He was covered in chocolate and just looked at me and grinned. I love those cute moments like that...those are the things that life is made of.

~I am thankful for...good books. I love to read. Really. It's probably one of my top 5 favorite things in the world. I'm a little bit biased in my reading. I tend to only read the same authors over and over again. Nicholas Sparks is my favorite. His new book comes out September 8 and I.Can't. Wait. I'm trying to broaden my "literary horizons" and explore new authors but that's not quite so simple. LOL {Memo: If you know of any really good books, let me know. I'm looking to develope a reading list and need some suggestions.}

~I am thankful for...Good Praise and Worship music. I always feel like I draw so close to God when listening to praise and worship. Third Day is my all-time favorite Christian band and I am in love with their new song "Born Again". It always puts me in such a great mood. I feel like I am sitting in the very presence of the Lord when I am listening to them. Casting Crowns is another favorite. I feel the same way about almost all of their songs too.

Great list. I'm sure it was wonderful to have your mom there with you, helping out. I love reading too. I need to commit to my next book and get it.

"Cornerstone" by Days of Fire is my favorite song - I'll play it over and over again on bad days!
