Going Away for the weekend

Yeah! We are leaving after church this morning to go to Camp Manitoumi! My dad-in-law is the director, so we have full access to everything from the horses to the pool. It is supposed to reach 90 today, so the pool may actually be tolerable, though probably still a bit cold.

Anyhoo, I am especially excited to be able to see my parents, who are also coming to camp. They plan to take Jack back home with them for several days. He is sooooooo excited! "Grandma Donna has a cool train for me!" That is all he has been talking about the past two days! What a riot!

Andrew is sure to be a big hit as well. I know I am prejudice, but I honestly beleive he is one of the cutest and sweetest little guys around. He has a great personality, and he loves to be around people, as long as someone he loves is nearby. He is crawling everywhere already, so I know he will be another go-getter, just like his brother. (sigh) I definitely have my work cut out for me as I try to raise these two!

New to the blogging thing

Okay. So here is my feeble attempt at blogging. I hope it will be more than my own ramblings, but I want so much to be able to share what goes on inside of my head.
I am pretty much a dreamer. My mind is usually going a mile a minute, thinking of everything from my deadlines at work to a fabuous idea for a melodramatic novel. (sigh) But who has time to do all of that?
As a mom of two little guys (ages 3 and 8 months), I feel like my life is consumed by them. They are constantly on my mind, and always in my heart. They are truly a joy, and I thank God each and every day for bringing them into my life. Though Nat and I are often exhuasted at the end of the day, we are truly blessed that God has seen fit to give us the privilege of rasising these little guys.
Along with my responsibilities as a wife and a mom, I am an editor at a Christian publishing company. I enjoy my work, especially since I can work part-time from home. However, it does keep my busy. I feel like it leaves little time for me.
So maybe this whole blogging thing will be good for me. I can use it as my stress relief.
Who knows?! I may find that I really enjoy it! :-)

Future of Hope

In an ever-changing world, I am thankful that the hope of my future is in the hands of the almighty. What a comfort to know that His promises hold true from generation to generation. I am truly blessed to be His child.
