Nothing to do and no where to go!

Today was a wonderful, almost as-perfect-as-they-come day.  Caleb and I got to stay put in one place with nothing (specific) to do and no where we needed to go.  We got to follow his normal routine (including all three walks!), I was able to clean the kitchen and catch up on laundry, we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner in the same place and we were able to enjoy one of the last remaining gorgeous days of MN fall weather.  I think mama needed it almost as much as baby did (maybe more).

And what was Steve doing while we enjoyed our day?  He was back at Apt. 105.  Cleaning. 

I feel honored and I feel loved today.  I am undeserving.  I am grateful for Steve's desire to serve and love us in this way, to allow us to lean on him during this transition.  I'm thankful for Steve's servant leadership and the way he calmly, quietly and faithfully leads our little family.  Even more, I am thankful for the Model that Steve looks to and the picture of Christ's love for His Bride (the church) that Steve portrays to me.


  1. You were in dire need of such a day, be sure to schedule more in days ahead. Your passion for family and friends and church and travel to such is amazing, I'm glad y ou are young enough to keep up this pace but do take more days like this one too! Advice from one who knows: mommy

  2. I love how you describe your husband in this blog and how he makes you feel. (Isn't normal the setting on your dryer?) Normality, who would have thought it would be such a nice gift!
