All About Me
Dawn - edging ever closer to 30, although I still feel like I'm 21. :) I'm married to a youth pastor ('Big G'), and have THREE wonderful kids: a five year-old son ('Little G'), a just turned two year-old daughter ('A'), and our newest little girl blessing, Baby R, was born May 28/07!! They keep me hopping as I juggle them, my WAH part-time job as an accountant, being a pastor's wife, and of course hobbies like quilting, scrapbooking, and blogging!

Everyday Things
"...For I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances."
Philippians 4:11

"If you want any one thing too much it's likely to disappoint. The healthy way is to learn to like the everyday things, like soft beds and buttermilk..."-- Augustus McCrae-"Lonesome Dove"

Welcome to Everyday Things, hosted by Everyday Mommy. This weekly feature is designed to encourage all of us to embrace contentment and to appreciate the everyday things which we often take for granted.

Today I am thankful for the quiet in our house in the mornings before the kids wake up - I am a morning person, so I (almost) always get up before them and get ready. My children are remarkably consistent about their waking times, so it's easy to plan this and have a few minutes of silence before the house awakens. Sometimes it is the only time all day where I can hear myself think and I treasure it.

Why can't I be more of a morning person? For when I get up early, I, too, find that the early morning hours are wonderful.

YES -- I wasn't sure how I would do with my son attending morning kindergarten. But with son number two sleeping in I enjoy peace and quiet before my day starts with him. :)

I totally agree. Although I am not a morning person, I love when I do get up and have the calm, peaceful quiet to relax and start my day.
