Doing the rain dance

Is it really bad that I am praying for rain? Not because my plants need it, and they do. But because my kids have soccer and I don't want to go!! Sad sad mommy!!

Common' rain!!!

Deeper thoughts

I have had some struggles lately. Little things. Lots of little bumps that make the road feel rocky. Lots of feeling sorry for myself moments.

Yesterday I got news. Tragic news. A friend from my childhood, from my past suffered a very tragic death. A shocking thing. Yet my life chugs on, bumps and all.

My children are healthy. My husband loves me. My bank account while almost empty has enough for food and shelter. The trees have buds and the grass is beginning to green.

Somewhere three young girls have to learn how to live without their mom.

All I can do is pray. Ask God to heal their hurt and pain.

Terrible blogger

I am the worst blogger these days. I don't even write blogs in my mind any more. Yikes!!

Take it to mean that we are happy well and relatively drama free.

The kids are enjoying our early spring. Bikes have been out for almost a month - they have been snowed on a few times, but still!!

Wes is busy working.

I am well, not sure what I am doing. I appear to be at a bit of a crossroads trying hard to figure out what my goals and direction in life should be. But no fear I'm sure I can put off any major decisions for at least a year or so!

Trust we are well. And if I ever think of anything interesting to say I will be sure to stop by.

Family break

We decided very last minute to take a quick break as a family. Wes found himself with a few days off and (believe it or not) it coincided with a break from school. So we packed everyone up and went to Edmonton for a couple nights and then on to Edson for two nights.

In Edmonton we did the mall, mini-golf, water park, galaxy land, visited with family. So much fun!

Then on to Edson where we stayed with my best friend Ali and her family. We had so much fun with them. The kids got on famously and it was so nice to spend a couple days getting caught up.

We came home tired and not ready for school. But the good news is it feels like spring in Calgary. So that is a plus.

Accidental Life

I hear a lot of people talk about living an "intention life." I know that, particularly the more earnest of them, mean living their life with their overarching focus always in mind. And I applaud the effort but I hate the phrase "intentional." Most people who have this view use it in their attempt to follow the will of God, which again I hugely applaud, being of a very like mind.

In the first place it is awkward and unnecessarily vague, which coming from me is saying a lot!

My far more serious objection is that it appears to be about control. If I can keep my focus on God and my divine purpose I will only do things that fit into that definition. I will make ever choice carefully and correctly. Again in theory this is excellent.

But theory and reality are two different things. Some times our missteps take us down roads we would never have taken. Some times accidents can change our trajectory for the good or the bad, but regardless change who we are and how we cope.

I for one am tired of this measured and careful approach to life, in may work for others but not for me.

Maybe if we all accepted that we don't know what tomorrow brings and that we can't control what it brings we could just embrace the moment and accept what life throws at us.

As I sit writing this my life looks nothing like what I planned. I guess its my accidental life!

Christmas is almost here

Christmas finally arrived at the Davis house. The tree arrived yesterday and the decorations went up today. And the kids are off school and the presents have all been wrapped and I had my Dad take our annual family Christmas card photo. So here we are. We'd love to have you comment and hear from you where ever you all. Merry Christmas and God bless you all and all your homes!

So good

I eat yogurt, because it is good for me. Not because I like it. That was... until I discovered Krema Yogurt. I didn't buy the low fat or no fat version. I bought the full fat flavoured yogurt and GOSH, is it good.

Check it out. Yummy!
