Day 4

Today's comment from the kiddo... "Momma, I can't with you." She is laughing at me for posting daily during this 6 weeks of her not being in school. (I will take a break from posting during spring break, unless I can find some goodies to post for those who are looking for things to do.)

She is excited today. Her sister is going to be coming over today and she will be able to hang out at home with her sister instead of being at my work all day. She will still have to do her school work when the teachers post it, but she is excited for just a change of pace for the next few days. Next week she is going to her dad's for the week. She said, "Well, does that mean you won't post on your blog?" I said, "NOPE, you will just be sending me pictures for me to post of what you are doing." She just shook her head. 

 Last year I did an online summit event. It was put on by Jon Gordon and it is called, "The Power of Positive Summit." It was so good. It had over 20 speakers and they posted a few speakers each day and it was just so encouraging. I loved almost half of the speakers... a few weren't my favorite, but it is a FREE online event to encourage all things positive. He just announced that he is doing the event sooner than later to help with the hard times we are going through right now. It will be April 2nd through 8th. I already signed up and I can't wait. If you are interested, please check it out. You can check out the speakers and register for the event, here.

When I went home for Christmas, I went to church with my sister and I fell in love with her bible. My only bibles are a big Thomas Kinkade bible, but to use it daily was kind of hard with how big it is. And a read the bible in a year one, where they broke the whole bible into different chapters for daily reading. I wanted a smaller one that I could use daily. I ordered the same one she had that day and got some cute tabs to go with it. I am in love with it. I haven't picked it up too much since buying it, but lately I am doing something in it every single night. The last few nights I have been writing some of the bible verses different people have been posting about fear and the storm we are in. It really has been good for my soul. On top of doing the journaling each night, I read a devotional with my kiddo each night and I am doing 2 different devotionals on the app through You Version. I never realized they added devotionals and I have completed one in the past week and I am not working through 2 more. They are quite amazing. 

So, that is just a little of what is going on over here and a few resources for you if you are looking for something to keep you busy. We WILL get through this together. It might be hard, it might suck for a while, you might struggle with finances, you might be sick and worried... just remember to breathe. Take it day by day (my life motto for now...) and remember to lean on your people. No in person, but from a far. Call them, text them, email them, facetime them, snapchat them... don't lose contact with the ones you love! They are just as worried and stressed as you are... Some of them, just won't tell you they are!
