II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

It's been a heckova day!

I could make this a long story-but I will spare you all the details and just say that I got fired today by one of my doctors. It was totally unexpected and very disappointing. After a lengthy discussion with them, I am still confused why this is happening..but oh well. I am going to try to look on the brightside and see that now I will have more time to spend with my sweet babies! God is my provider and there is nothing He can't do.
I read a quote today in a magazine article. The article was about learning how to do one thing at one time instead of ten things at one time (something I haven't figured out yet.) Anyway here is the quote, "Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow, for babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow. So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust, go to sleep. I'm rocking my baby, and babies don't keep."
I am hoping to live more like this from now on. Here's another thing it said in the article, "It's true that when you stop rushing around, you get less done. But you also get more moments, and yes, these are the moments of your life."
Ahhhh....what a thought....that slowing down and doing less can actually be a positive thing. I want to spend at least a few minutes every day cherishing my children rather than rushing them along from thing to thing and place to place. And now, I should have more time to do that! And now, it's time to put this day to an end. Goodnight everyone!

Hey Jenni! Glad to have my computer back so I can read your blog...and update mine too! I love hearing about what's going on with you. I miss you guys so much! And I know this was from one of your earlier posts, but those pictures of your kids are gorgeous! She did such a great job capturing just how adorable your kiddos are. I made my own photosite website with pics of my new house and pics from our Chicago trip too. Check it out. www.craftylildevil.photosite.com
Love and miss you! Amy

P.S. I'm so sorry to hear about you getting fired by one of your doctors! But I'm glad it will allow you to spend more time with your family. Maybe it was God's way of telling you that you were doing too much.
Pour yourself a glass of something nice and cool to drink, sit back, relax and just enjoy doing nothing. That's something we could all learn to do more often.
