The Plot Thickens...

"Life is either a daring adventure
or nothing at all"
~ Helen Keller

I must admit that life in my little corner of the garden is anything but boring.
It is filled to the brim. Gloriously.
Sometimes I have to step out of the blogosphere for a short while because my plate is simply spilling over.
Undoubtedly, when my plate is spilling over,
there are bound to be a few messes.
'Cause let's face it, life is messy.
Sometimes the demands grossly outweigh my energy levels.
Yet it never ceases to amaze me
how the very things that drive me crazy,
are the very things that God uses to refine me.
And I embrace it.

Made me think of this song...
anyone else out there who can relate?

On another note, I'm laughing out loud tonight.
My daughter is a real trendsetter...she likes to hang out
in her underwear and flip flops.
My son communicates in a series of growls...He must have tiger's blood.
And just when you thought the dynamics in our house
couldn't get any more SPECTACULAR...
and so the plot thickens...

p.s. is it just me, or is anyone else craving the mint-i-liciousness
of a shamrock shake?

more soon.....ciao bellas....

  3. Congratulations! your descriptions sound so familiar, my son is 21 years old now but still carries a scar on his right thigh, he courageously earned,from what his old pediatrician used to call the famous battle of the woodenhorse.
