Ok August, I'm Done With You
This month has been a very busy month. I'll be so glad when August is gone so I can use September and October to the fullest. Although the weather will be hot and muggy until the end of October, it is what Floridians are dealt with so I'll decorate to the fullest. Ok August, I'm done with you. Go away now!
Precious little Lily Grace came to stay with us one night. She's such a good baby and did so well. We were mainly stuck inside though because every time I tried to take her out, her beautiful white skin attracted yellow flies. Ugh, those things hurt when they bite so getting in the pool was also out of the question. Rocking on the front porch while watching for Mema (my mother, her great grandmother) to arrive was out of the question. We were out there after breakfast and a yellow fly landed on her chubby sweet little foot! One more reason I'm done with summer!
I also let her get as dirty as a little pig. How can a curious 10 month old stay clean when she's exploring?
On August 20, that sweet hubby and I celebrated another wedding anniversary. I am so blessed that I have a God fearing husband that loves God with his whole heart. He also loves and cherishes me and his husband responsibilities as well as Matthew and fatherhood. I would NEVER say marriage and parenthood is perfect because there is no way it could be. It takes work and devotion out of every person involved, but it's so much easier when God is the center of everything. Living by the Bible is so much easier than trying to wing it!
So how about you? Are you done with August and summer? Is the autumn/fall fever raging inside of you as bad as it is inside of me?
Don't be surprised if the next posting is one about fall and fall decorations. I might not be able to wait until September!
Just a very personal note: There is so much going on in my daily life right now that is requiring my mental and physical time/energy. My sister (sweet little seester) and I are really going through a lot with our dad's stuff and trying to get everything resolved BEFORE the end of the year. If you haven't followed/read Lillie Mae Acres for very long, my dad passed away in February. I can't believe it's already been 6 months! Although some paperwork/legal matters was taken care of, a lot was NOT! We are just leaning. depending, and drawing strenth and wisdom from God. Sometimes it seems one step forward sets us three steps back, but we just have to keep telling each other that we're headed towards the mountain top. Please keep us in your prayers. I sure appreciate it!
Remember, don't be surprised if my next posting has FALL splattered all over it. I know ya'll have to be getting excited about the beautiful holidays and weather that's just around the corner! Have a blessed weekend.
