I accepted an offer too good to refuse…a date with my guys!

My new fabric--- Unwrapping His Grace at surrenderedlivingnow.com

While I realize I was supposed to show pictures of my bedroom tonight so we could decide about curtains versus window toppers…but there’s been a bit of a change in plans.

I spent the day catching up on cleaning our living room, dining room and kitchen today with my guys and then finished off the afternoon enjoying board games with them.  It was a good day…

The thing is…tonight after supper, they talked me into an up late kind of night snuggling and watching “Free Willy 4″ with pizza and popcorn.  And that is the kind of offer I can’t afford to refuse when they are growing up right before my eyes!  So you guessed it, instead of spending the evening cleaning their rooms and tidying mine or writing…I spent it snuggling under comfy throws with my two favorite gentlemen and then listening to their hearts and reading stories together much later than I planned.

So I had the choice…work on my bedroom and take pictures to prepare my new spring bedroom project or soak in time with these two treasures…it was no contest!

Do I regret it?  Never!  Precious moments like these are priceless!

Check them out sporting their new haircuts that they got on Thursday.

My Mr. Michael right after his new hair cut!  He picked the style.

My Mr Josh right after his new hair cut on Thursday. He decided to go with just a trim. Can you believe he is already 10!!!!???

I couldn’t turn down a special date with these two handsome young men now could I…especially after they did so well helping me while I had the flu this week?

I did discover one thing regarding the curtains vs toppers decision today though…it looks like I don’t have enough fabric to cover both windows which are either side of my bed with full curtains.  Sooo…we’ll just have to get creative or make toppers.  Hmmmm…I think we will revisit this topic later next week…with pictures!  I promise!

I so appreciate all of you.  You forgive me don’t you?

Now, since I am still recovering from the stomach flu, I am going to head to bed.  If everything goes according to plan and we don’t get more snow tonight, we are heading to worship with our church family in the morning!  I can’t wait!

About the author

Mary Joy

I am a broken daughter of God and a work in progress. I am passionate about encouraging women to embrace God's grace and faithfulness as I discover and share His faithfulness, grace and even joy in the messiness of my journey as a widowed (less than 2 yrs), homeschooling mom with a missionary's heart. I am in awe of how God fills me up and carries me through each day. My Heavenly Father leads me as I continue to parent and home school my two recovering and very active boys and encourage my beautiful teenage step-daughter (long distance) during her first year in of college. In every moment I see incredible evidence of God's healing love, grace and faithfulness. I am so blessed to be the creator, manager, and an author of Unwrapping His Grace as I lean on my Savior to lead us in this special web-ministry.
