My thought for the week:  I don’t understand the hand of God.  But I know that when my heart breaks; His does too.  And the things that give me joy bring Him joy, and I’m gong to love this life He has given me with every fiber of my being.

    I LOVE my Bosch mixer. It is the best! I’ve had mine forever! Now that I think about it…it’s been 11 1/2 years and I still have the same mixer. So, rest assure you will be mixing cookie dough in that thing with your grandchildren. ;)

    Your kids are adorable. Your week looks very lovely…even the mess on the floor!
    Happy Weekend to you April.

      I’m loving my Bosch too Elizabeth! I’ve had a standard Kitchen Aid mixer for 13 years now but it was too small for a lot of the recipes I like to use. I was thinking about upgrading to the bigger Kitchen Aid when Justin surprised me with the Bosch. I’ve been making cookies and rolls all week long!

    Oh my word, #5 is so adorable. I know the feeling, I squeeze K and think, “How did you get this big already?”
    I know allllll about #12. We are going to remedy one of those today.
    Your kids would be happy here today. No school because of a layer of ice and now the snow is just coming down in big fluffy flakes. :)

    Your last paragraph – YES. I echo that too.
    Darling Pearl looks so much like her beautiful mother.
    Also, I think I’d love to be one of your kiddos. :) Your home feels like such a warm, wonderful place to be!

    Sis, thank you for loving those little ones the way you do. I also do not understand the hand of God. But I do understand the love of a mothers heart. It can’t be explained. And aside from the love of my Heavenly Father, nothing compares. Love, Mom
