it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood

today i'm grateful for a new day.

*not necessarily the waking up, peeling myself out of bed part.

but i am definitely grateful for another chance to breathe in and out.
another day to live, cry, laugh, totally screw up, get over it, work & play.

another day to experience joy & work out my salvation.

i'm also grateful for livy who greets me from her crib with smiles & laughs.
seriously: there couldn't be a happier baby in the morning.
she's such a lover.

and an ever-entertaining chloe, who woke me up with these words,
"jesus wants you to make me some toast."

haha. life is good.

It's easier to get out of bed when your kid makes you laugh.

Your girl is quite funny.

Coree Adams said...

Lisa Romer Keele said...

Well, you can't say no to Jesus! I bet the toast was good :-)

Jesus wanted me to take 2 naps today. So I did. You can't argue with Jesus - clearly Chlo has already learned this!

granny said...

LOL, Chloe. Granny is dying (of laughter.)

I knew I liked Chloe. Please expect that to be the new catch phrase at our house for EVERYTHING.

If I woke up to those words in the morning waking up would take a whole new meaning! LOVE it!

(Oh and could you ask Cloe to ask Jesus to please send me a grandbaby that is just as amazing as she is? I've been waiting a long time and I'm trying to be good!) LOL!
