Daybook 2-14-11 Happy Valentine's Day!

A photo thought...

Outside my window…blue sky, sunshine, gentle breeze bringing warmer weather today.
 I am thinking…about Valentine's Day.  Loving so many people, my God, my life.
I am wearing…a coral tunic top and black yoga pants.
I am hearing…"Bless the Broken Road" by Selah on my computer and my two year old playing trains.
I am thankful for…the changing of each season.  I always decide I like the next one even better than the last.  It feels like time to think about planting flowers and bringing out Easter baskets again.
I am going… to stay home today.  Mondays are my work at home day - laundry, beds, general tidying from the weekend and making lists and plans for the week ahead.  Also need to wrap the little gifts I got for Valentine's Day!
I am hoping…my cousin will still be able to visit us overnight tonight.  Feel better!
I am praying for…my friend, Terri, whose benefit is this week at the Blarney Stone.  She needs miraculous healing, prayers and donations. Terri's birthday is also this week and I am so grateful for our 31 years of friendship. May God Bless you friend.
I am reading… Small Steps for Catholic Moms: Think. Pray. Act. Every Day. by Danielle Bean and Elizabeth Foss.  It has very short three-step devotions for each day of the year.
I am creating…a week of celebrations: Valentine's Day and two birthday parties!
I am pondering…this blog post about the urge to quit making art  when things get tough.
God is leading me…to pray the rosary more often.
In the kitchen…a big week of requests for birthday breakfasts, lunches and dinners! I'll be posting about these recipes at Bake Me Away all week. For Valentine's Day we'll be having Chicken Wild Rice Soup and chocolate fondue with fresh fruit.
Around the house…next on the list for 52 Weeks of Organizing is my home-keeping binder system which I'll post about tomorrow.
One of my favorite things… God's amazing grace.  My dear friend was having trouble making ends meet while paying for Catholic schooling for her children.  She and her husband prayed for an answer and kept making sacrifices.  Last week she got a call from the school secretary saying that an anonymous donor had paid the ENTIRE REST OF THE YEAR'S TUITION for their family.  Whoever that was  - she says THANK YOU and THANK GOD!
