Workin' 8:00-3:30 (if only..... hahaha)

Tomorrow mommy goes back to work.  Now you may be thinking that tears are streaming down my face, but I'm here to tell you they.are.not.  Listen.... I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my girls immensely, but the Lord knows that I am not meant to stay at home with them all the time.  It is in His plan that I love other children during the school year.  There was a time that I questioned this plan, but in all the decisions that have been made in our lives, He continues to lead me to the path of loving more children than just my own.  He knows I love my girls like I love cereal, cheeseburgers, and ice cream.  :)

So this year I want to implement a little prayer before we leave for our day.  This will give us time to thank the Lord for giving us the opportunity to enjoy another day with each other and to ask him for his blessings throughout the day.  So I whipped these guys up tonight and am getting ready to laminate them.  If you click on the pictures you can print them out for your home.  :)  I'm especially loving the Angel of God prayer.  I remember saying this throughout my years of catholic grade school.  I have even found myself saying it throughout the years when I've traveled here and there.  :)


From our Brown eyes to yours.......


  1. Beautifully said! I stayed home with my hazel eyed children, but I think I was a better mom when I worked. Partly because I could learn from other parents and see what worked and didn't work for them. I cherish the years I did stay home, but I love working, too. God knows what we need and when we need it. He knows how to use us...where to use us and He always loves us!

  2. I completely agree my sweet friend! It's so comforting to know that we are in HIS hands!

  3. So beautiful..."He continues to lead me to the path of loving more children than just my own"
