November 23rd: I am thankful for prayer.
I find myself praying much more frequently than I ever have before since becoming a mom. I have found that if I am not constantly calling on the Lord to make me braver, stronger, and more confident, my fears and anxiety about life can EASILY take control of me. I pray for anything and everything, but I do mostly pray for my child.
A long-time friend read a passage from The Confident Mom by Joyce Meyers to me a few weeks ago, which basically reminded us as moms to not fear for our children. That worrying for them is NOT a what we are called to and is sinful. Letting go of my fears for Kennedy is not an easy task, but at the same time, I feel a HUGE weight lifted off my shoulders when I say the words "Lord, I trust you and have faith that you have the best intentions for my daughter". I know that the Lord hears my prayers and I am so thankful to serve a Savior who knows me and loves me just as I am.
November 24th: (On a less serious note) I am thankful for recipes!
Whoever thought that it would be a good idea to start documenting delicious creations was a genius and I am forever thankful. Especially during the holidays! I mean, can you imagine if no one had recipes? Everything would taste like wood chips.
Monday Confessions: Let's be real here. It's a safe place.
My favorite time of the day to eat sweets/candy is after breakfast. I have probably eaten a mini snickers every day after breakfast for the last 4 months.
I love to eat yogurt and cottage cheese on toast.
I daydream that I am the singer/rapper/girl in the music video when I hear certain songs.
I want to become a celebrity JUST SO I can be on Dancing With The Stars.
I feel that if I started now, I could still become an elite runner and actually compete in a marathon, not just survive and get awarded with a "free" Chick-Fil-A sandwich (which I still look forward to).
If I ever saw Kate Middleton in real life, I think I would faint.
I love living in the city where I grew up but would jump at the chance to live somewhere else.
I watch the Food Network while I do circuits in my living room. Totally counterproductive.
I love tattoos and the stories that are behind them. I have two and feel like I could easily have 20 if I didn't lock down my love for them. I just think they are such a cool expression of individuality and personality. My mom does not share my sentiments but loves me just the same :)
HAPPY MONDAY! I love you guys and hope you have a fantastic week! Gobble Gobble!
