I love wreaths. I really love seasonal wreaths. I know they are a "want' and by no means a need. I was wanting a new wreath for our front door this year because all my wreaths are old and faded. I already had a wire form, and burlap, and décor from things I have collected over the years from gifts and such. I did buy some pipe cleaners and some extra burlap and ribbon. I made this wreath for under $12.00. I thought it turned our nice and gives a NICE WELCOME for our front door.
I thought it turned out very cute. It is bright and springy!!! I want to thank you for all the sweet encouragement I have received and I appreciate it more than you all know. A new change has happened and I am just going to embrace it even though I am not for sure why, I am trusting in the Lord and that is all I can do. I do feel better. I believe I have a road to recover and rebuild my health and I am looking forward to our summer break from school to be able to get started on investing in my health and hopefully create long lasting changes and disciplines.
We are getting lots of spring rain here in the Midwest and I love the sound of rain. I am sitting here right now listening to the sprinkles and feeling the breeze through our windows. I love the smell of a fresh spring rain after a lawn has been mowed. Right now, I hear all kinds of birds, and tree frogs having them a time. I love the music of God's Creation.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend. We have Ethan's 15th birthday celebration tomorrow after Sunday evening church. We are all looking forward to that. I can't believe my oldest is 15 years old.
I didn't do so well on my goals that I had set. I am really having a hard time accomplishing them all. I believe it is my season of life right now. I am praying about how to be more committed to goals. I did increase my water intake, walked with a friend this week, kept the house cleaned, and prepared as much as I could for Ethan's party on top of working 43 hours this week and church duties.
In the frugal area I turned down a lot of things to keep money for savings. I try to utilize leftovers this week and felt very successful. I set a budget for Ethan's party and stuck with it on the most part.
