"When a soul recognises the will of God and shows a readiness to submit to it entirely, then God gives Himself to such a soul and renders it most powerful succour under all circumstances." - Rev. Jean-Pierre de Caussade

Discoveries of life (vol.2)

Waking up at 2am to realize your kid is standing by you staring at your face will surely scare the heck out of you.

The smell of chocolate chip banana pancakes will lure a tired pregnant woman out of bed. (Thanks babe! Just make some coffee next time too, mmkay?)

Your children, who rarely get sick (we're lucky, I know), will come down with a cough/cold/yuckiness the week one of them has surgery. I probably don't have to mention that neither of them have ever had surgery before, so you know...life is funny aggravating sometimes. (Thanks for the prayers for Chase! Unfortunately we will need them again in 3 weeks, as the surgery was postponed due to a cough that started last night. Ugh.)
We decided to be fun parents and have a late dinner at IHOP (to help Chase not be a ravenous beast when he woke up, because, fasting for surgery). All for naught. Sigh.

You will consider yourself someone who tolerates spiders until you find one crawling down your leg while you're sitting innocently, eating a snack. Then spiders are suddenly on the same level as snakes (which are the worst!!!).

It is indeed possible to live without a microwave. Even when your hubby accidentally buys microwave-only food at Costco.

Your least active child in utero will choose the hours between 3-5am to do somersaults and karate kicks. (I love you so much, Aaron, but Mommy needs sleep!).

New throw pillows can really make a difference in a room. (I found $5 removable covers - hollerrrrr - for the throw pillows we already have and I loooove them! I've been wanting covers forever now but couldn't find any cheap enough).

It's okay to stop reading a book that you're not enjoying. Really. It is. (I did this for the first time ever this week. So hard for my perfectionist self - because if I start something it NEEDS to be finished - but it actually was freeing!)

It is impossible to enter a craft store and then leave it without buying anything. Impossible, I tell you. (See the bit about pillow covers above.)

I use parentheses way too much. (Does that aggravate you? Sorry. Well, no. Not sorry. It's my blog.)
