Missing my mom

I was just looking at pictures of my aunts and cousins in Argentina and I started missing my mom and realized how much I push out my feelings of loss and try not to think about it. I do miss her so much and still need her. I miss her laugh, her hugs, her smell, her voice, her nurturing and godly advice. I miss sitting with her and just being together. This August will be three years since she went to be with the Lord.

I am also pondering the fact that God has blessed me with a restored friendship with my dad and I am enjoying having him in my life. I can see how God has brought us closer and how much it means to him and to me.

Another thing I have noticed is how much Lindsay and my mom are so alike. Mannerisms and talents. I see so much of my mom in her and it really makes me smile and thank the Lord for her.

My Five current Faves

1. I love chick flicks. Having a small group of about eight friends that come over to cook together, eat and relax to a wonderful movie has been such a fun activity! Everyone arrives at 6pm and there is a flurry of hugs, everyone is talking all at once and there's lots of laughter. I look forward to this every month and am so blessed to host it! Tonight we are watching "Raising Helen" and making homemade pizzas and Italian sodas. :)

2. I absolutley LOVE to scrapbook. I can never get enough of it and there are never enough hours to do it. Even when we spend ALL day scrapping, it never seems like enough and we never get tired. I always look forward to any chance to scrap!

3. I love going on road trips. I haven't been on one in a long while. I think we are about due for one.

4. I love my new exercise bike and the way that God blessed me with it right down to the details of the kind I wanted. He is always reminding me of how He cares about the little things in our lives that make us happy and he blesses me so much!

5. I love all the new fun purses that are available now. I am fighting the urge to go shopping...
