“Rejoice with those who rejoice,” and “My feelings do not affect God’s facts.” YEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!!! Two points I need to keep at the forefront, especially this next week with Summit.
Can’t believe Summit is finally here!! Wishing you, Annelise, and all the girls a great competition!!!
THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!! We leave Thursday, and they compete Saturday & *hopefully* Sunday, too 🙏❤️

Sues, I just have to say that YES, those two points are something I need to remind myself of ALL. The. Time. I could honestly just walk around all day, chanting, “My feelings do not affect God’s facts…my feelings do not affect God’s facts…” 😉 Thank you so much for taking time to read my little post! Blessings to you on what sounds like a big week!
Thank you so much for your prayers for our huge weekend ahead and for your post that really blessed me!!!

Awwww…Tracey! Thank you so, so much for the lovely honor of being part of this week’s round-up! I’m sorry to be so late in thanking you…is it just me, or has life not slowed down even though I’m not planning a graduation party this year? 😉 And OH, the little bird family! 🙂 Blessings to you, my friend, and thank you again.
No, it doesn’t seem like life slows down for much these days!! 🙂 Blessings to you and your sweet family as well!
I really appreciated the post about not telling mothers to enjoy every minute. I’m so glad that no one has ever told me that because they might have gotten a punch in the nose! When your baby won’t stop crying or when she’s up multiple times during the night so that you’re exhausted, you cannot enjoy every minute. I have some friends who actually miss the middle of the night feedings. Not me! 😉 But they were several more years removed from that than I am.
I have a bossy child so I enjoyed that post.
The New Mummy Guilt: oh, I hope I never have to do that. My mother had the same struggles with her mother, and I saw how tough it was. As a matter of fact, my mother said that I shouldn’t do that, but that I should just put her in a nursing home if/when the time comes. While I appreciate her saying that, it would be so hard to do.
I’m very far away from middle-of-the-night feedings, but I can still say I don’t miss them at all. Although actually both of my girls were fairly good sleepers, so thankfully that was a relatively short season.
Yes, it’s hard to even think about how we’ll handle certain situations as our parents age. It’ll be yet another time of seeking God’s wisdom and guidance on how best to help those we love!
