Greeting



Hello and welcome to the blog of one crazy mom!

Here I want to share about my life, my struggles and successes, the brighter pieces of my life's mosaics and the darker ones, too. They all are a part of the masterpiece God is working on, it just takes time to see a bigger picture.

In The Nesting Mood

Wow, I don't find myself that very interesting in keeping up my blog anymore! There are so many wonderful things to share, yet I have completely occupied my mind (AND my time) with something else - getting ready for the our new baby's arrival! It seems I had a late start with this child - usually I would have been all set to go by now (the due date is February 12th!). But when you already have two kids, the third one seems such a natural thing that you almost forget to prepare! :)

We have finally set up the crib and a dresser/changing table, I have washed all there is to wash for the little one (hopefully!), bought two huge boxes of diapers :), and in the true spirit of nesting have started a huge task of tidying up the whole house :):):). Now, that is quite a challenge, you should know, as it also means going through dozens of boxes in our garage that haven't yet been sorted out since we moved here half a year ago!! The most unbelievable thing is that I actually enjoy it! It definitely must be pregnancy hormones, dimming my conscience! ;) The Salvation Army will truly enjoy the large bags of stuff I've set aside for them to pick. And my husband just might stop calling our garage a big dump! :)

As for the baby, he is enjoying himself, as far as I can tell. Now he managed to move himself into a breech position, just weeks before being born (no, it happened BEFORE I did all the bending and cleaning! :)). None of my two kids did that, so this one might be special in his own way. Tonight my husband and I enjoyed looking through baby pictures of our two older children, and now can't wait to see what kind of personality will our little Matthew Peter have!..

  1. So excited that your little miracle will be here soon. Babies are such blessings.

    As for the book, I have the Personal Reflections Series. I guess I didn't know there was a difference. I got it at Sam's Club. It has been a blessing. Each day's study is very short (has been so far), so with a new baby, it might be the right thing for you. You can join in with us anytime as well! Let me know how it goes.
