Too good to be true

I am sitting on the couch enjoying the cooler fall weather. The breeze is coming in through the open glass door. I can hear Sophie playing with her dolly in her room. Caroline is sleeping in her bassinet. My boys are off with their friends, enjoying a Chick-fil-A play date. I had an entire conversation with a friend on the phone this morning.

This doesn't seem right. It is my first day 'on my own' with four kids. My mom is back in Florida, and Scott is at work. And it has been a great morning.

Thank you, Lord! I was a bit worried about how today would go. Of course, I will not take away the fact that I've had help with the boys. And a friend is bringing dinner tonight. And my bed is not made yet (I'm hoping for a short nap while the older kids nap this afternoon). But I am blessed. And today has been a great day so far.

Yes! His lovingkindness is everlasting. And the friends helping out is part of all of that. Isn't it great that we don't have to manage it all ourselves?

Yes, Renata. It was great chatting last night. Our dinner finally got hot. How did yours turn out?

It turned out great. I put potatoes and carrots on the bottom of the crockpot (I should have tossed them in some oil and salt, but it came out just fine), then I put meatloaf on top. I left it in the cooker on high for 4-5 hrs. The veggies were seasoned by the meatloaf. We had enough left over for last night too (I reheated it in the slow cooker as well ~2hrs). I'm definitely making this again.

I remember my first week with Natalie (number 3) I was feeling pretty productive and I looked around it was evening and I realized we all had the same clothes on from the previous day except Natalie of coarse she was the baby doll we changed her several times sad I know but I was so focused on having a normal day I guess I forgot the basics.. lol
