This week has been a little quieter too, not as much on our schedule and you now what that is perfectly OK with me! We got to enjoy a little down time and friend time, and extra reading time! Which is really OK with me!
We survived the dentist appointments this time. I have one child who is a little sensitive to any type of doctor appointments. This is first time we walked out with no one freaking out, yay!! I am not sure what it was that helped: oils, little Dunkin Donuts bribery, and some prayers, but I am just super OK with it all because it was a pleasant time and I personally am not a fan of dentist offices!
Personally I don't really have much of anything worth writing or sharing about this week and that too is OK with me!

Never thought about like this, but yes! If you ever wonder whether you’re important and valuable, think about this: http://motheringfromscratch.com/2015/05/14/strong-family/
Slow traffic, a sick child, or a costly home repair may not seem like important tools in our sanctification, but they are. We often overlook these interruptions and inconveniences and instead expect God to work in our lives through huge life-changing circumstances. But the reality is, we won’t often have major events in our life that cause us to trust God and obey him in some deeply profound way. We won’t be called to build an ark or take an only child up Mt. Moriah. Rather, it’s in these small frustrations and interruptions, the little things in our life, where we are given opportunities to rely on God, to obey him, and bring him glory. http://www.desiringgod.org/articles/when-god-interrupts-your-plans
Just take a look at how many kinds of flowers there are, how each sunset varies from the next, how every snowflake that falls is one of a kind. We look at “perfect” as fitting into someone else’s mold. The perfect wife. The perfect mother. The perfect employee. But God says you’re one of a kind. He wants you to become more of who He created you to be, not a copy of someone else. http://holleygerth.com/dare-to-be-you/
