Treasured Moments - 6

Do you find yourself falling into a pattern of daily grind, skipping the 'fun' activities because you don't have time or lack energy?Do creative arts, nature walks, drama, read aloud or spontaneous acts seem only a distant dream in your life?
Yet these Treasured Moments shared with loved ones uplift us, nurture our soul, remind us of the beauty and joy in our lives.
We want Treasured Moments for ourselves, for our children, for our families but how can we make it happen?
... Commitment ... Encouragement ... Support ... Ideas ... Plans.

I invite you to join us every Saturday and share your plans and ideas, your targets and goals and your stories ... your 'Treasured Moments'. In this way we may inspire one another, encourage ourselves and start achieving our dreams. Hosted by Erin at Seven Little Australians and Counting

My Treasured Moments this week are:

Seeing Sir N jump into a pool for the first time at swimming lessons.  Watching his pleasure at receiving his good effort certificate after the school holiday programme at Paul Sadler Swimland.

Catching up with Mrs T,  she is such a gentle godly women who inspires me and encourages me.  I felt so good after our time of fellowship.  I think I need to invest into more time with friends like this.

Hearing that baby Maddie is getting well.  She has been in the NICU unit at the Royal Childrens since she was born seven weeks ago.

Starting Healthy Lifestyle by Careforce LifeKeys this morning has been a real goal achieved for me.  I have come home refreshed and encouraged and ready to make some healthy lifestyle changes. 

Time to confess.  I have not started  31 Days to Clean Challenge Having a Martha House the Mary Way by Sarah Mae.  I do intend to do this but life happened this week.....  and I decided I would rather do this excellently and gain the full benefit rather than half heartedly and only gain 10 % of the benefits.  I have however been looking over the pages and will be blogging about it over at GEMS 2 TOTS in a weeks time.

  3. Yes, so important to make time for all the things we want to do, things that we want to look back and say...we used to do this. Today is a day of rest for our family. The house is clean before we start, the first time in months. Its given me freedom to have real rest.
