Welcome back friends! Time to linkup and share your posts on faith, marriage, motherhood and homemaking. 🙂
I hope you had a great weekend, I know we did, a short visit from a brother and his wife was fun. 🙂
Sunday marks 1 week since I went off of dairy. Kolton has been pretty colicky for a long time and I finally decided that I needed to make a diet change. I knew there was a happy little boy underneath all those tears, I just had to find him.
I keep screwing up and eating stuff that has a bit of dairy in it, but overall, I’ve eliminated most of it. By Thursday I was already seeing a difference. He rode home from work and was awake but not screaming. Normally the only times car rides were scream free was when he slept.
So no screaming in the car, a lot more relaxed and MUCH more smiley. I think I’m finding that happy little boy that I knew was in there, and that makes it all worth it!!!
At Heart of Deborah I read about choosing joy. She gave us five things to consider when Choosing Joy. I found it very encouraging and uplifting to read. All of her points were spot on, and I could clearly see that times when I wasn’t happy, had more to do with my choices than my circumstances.
At Purposely Frugal I read about God using you right where you are. Bloom Where Planted is easy enough to say, but a little harder to do. Her post sorta hit the nail on the head for me. “These situations reveal that I really don’t trust Him and in my prideful arrogance I think I know best.” A great read to start out your week with!
