My Little Mud Princess

For the last two days, it has done nothing but rain! I can't stand the cold, but what can be worse than cold, is rain and cold mixed together. However, today we woke up to a warm sunshine! With this warm weather I decided that there were things I was very thankful for and things that I would never do again.

I am thankful that God blessed me with 5 beautiful children to kiss and love on every day. I am so incredibly grateful for a husband who still makes my heart skip a beat when he calls me, looks at me, or touches me. I am thankful to have a home, not just a house. I am thankful that I have the freedom to praise my God in public and worship with my whole life.

I realized that I never want my children to miss out on a day of laughter. I never want them to think that their mom couldn't have fun or let loose. I never want to sit on my rump and do nothing while the sun is shining. I want my kids to remember that one day they ran through mud puddles and got REAL dirty!

So today, we sang Miley Cyrus' song "Party in the U.S.A" at the top of our lungs while we drove to and from church. We raced each other on our bikes and laughed when Addison beat us all. We delivered cookies to our neighbors. And yes, we ran through mud puddles!
