this "happy light" is part of my "plan of attack" for the winter. i turn it on in the morning when i'm reading. and i TRULY believe it's helping. now, it could just be a "placebo" thing (you know, where you THINK it's helping but it's just helping because you THINK it is). i don't care WHY...i'm just glad it is!! (some of my other plans of attack are not going so well...like not eating sugar :/ i DO KNOW that helps...but can't get myself under control!)
my mom sent me this picture after that show a couple weeks ago...isn't he the cutest?!?
megan, helped put on this amazing shop last week. all of the items were purchased from artisans and businesses to create economic opportunity for the vulnerable. it was so beautiful! the shop AND the items and the hearts.
so. neither pat or i drink coffee. which is fine. but when people come to our house, we have no coffee to offer them. because we never think about it. but then feel bad when they are here. so we usually send them down the street to dunkin donuts (which DOES have good coffee, or so they say...)
anyways. when i was cleaning out our storage room the other month, i found this coffee maker. we got it when we got married. !!! we registered for it, someone bought it for us, and we've had it for 16 YEARS...from apartments to townhouse to house. STILL IN THE BOX until last week! i opened that thing up and made my first pot of coffee in my kitchen. i didn't drink a drop (hate the stuff) but, thankfully, rebekah likes it and she drank it for me.
in one of my efforts, i printed out a super detailed coloring page for each of us. and we colored. side by side. for over 30 minutes. we didn't talk a ton. but we were just TOGETHER. i didn't let anyone distract me or pull me away. who knows if it met her heart or not, but it was an enjoyable time together and i'm thankful for it!
