Wednesday's adventure began with a decision to not continue in my bible study group anymore. I absolutely love this group and all the people I have come to know through it. It has become very much another thing to do though. The studies we are doing are jam packed full of truths I need and want to learn. But it seems to acquire this information it takes about an hour for me to sit down and go through the lesson and not to mention meditate on it. I can't seem to find that extra time right now. If I am able to find the time I soon get interrupted and cannot concentrate during the lesson.. This was a very hard decision for me to make because I need to be in God's word and I need the ladies in the group wisdom on life. I'm hoping and praying that God will soon put in my path a study or devotional that I can use in a short amount of time and continue to apply it to my walk. Oh how will miss my old life. I know, I know this will be an adventure.

On another note I went to visit a friend, and Trinity loves to see her. Just as my friend picked her up from the car seat Trinity spit up all over herself and the new carpet. :) Leave it to the kiddo's to break someone else's house in. I winked and said get used to it. She' expecting this winter!

Mom's should never own anything new!

Adventure #2 Lunch with Aunt Bonnie

My Aunt called one day and wanted to take Trinity and I and another friend of mine and her daughter to lunch one day. We had a great time.

The two girls just love looking at each other.
The adventure here was of course getting us all seated accordingly. They tried to put us in a booth, but the car seat would not fit. Which is why I said IN THE Beginning I needed a high chair/ sling thinger. We had to switch tables of course. It comes with the adventure of going out to eat. Only a couple of weeks and she will be able to sit in the high chair. Yeah!
It is so nice to venture out with family and loved ones. Thank you Aunt Bonnie!
How does one come about this sort of blog? Well you take a person who has a sense for adventure you get her married, throw in a house to take care of, and a business to run, then the two become three, and you have Trinity. Trinity is my gift from above. She came here to rescue me, and I suppose she's hear to learn a few things from me too. God only knows whats in store for us. I'm just trying to make sense of it all.

This was inspired by a few people in my life. Of course my daughter, and a friend ,and sister. As I listened to a friend talk about a past trip they had done. I suddenly felt trapped, and very aware of the simple truth that I will no longer be able to embark on any new adventures. Actually, I have never done most of the adventuresome activities I dreamed of. I think that made it even worse to tolerate the bitterness that crept into my soul. I need to SEE, HEAR, TASTE, EXPERIENCE what is out there. It's in my blood! However, it is also in my blood to be the responsible, loving caring, nurturing, mother and wife that I have been called to at this time. As many of us are.... I'm torn!

As I vented to my sister, she began to explain to me that this is my adventure. Motherhood! An adventure? I guess... Everyday is different. I never know what to expect. She does grow so fast and learns so quickly. I do get to HEAR the laughter and the cries. I also get to SMELL the diapers, and TASTE the baby food when I am checking for the right temp. I do SEE the adventure when I look for it. I am a mother I get to EXPERIENCE everything my Trinity does. What an adventure.

Adventure #1

I realized today that there is adventure in every day you just have too look for it. Sometimes it's the real annoying things that you do every week. Like grocery shopping with a 6 month old when it's raining. I chose to look at that as an adventure. Would there have been a warmer sunnier day to go.... yes, but where would the fun be in that. I prefer to spend the time doing my hair, organizing my coupons, (which is an adventure all in itself), and debating in the car to wait out the rain. NA! I look at the time and the decision is made. Get the hair wet trying to keep the little one dry while lugging the carrier, purse, binder, (holds all my lists and coupons) (Another time on that!) and don't forget the trick to locking the car after you get the baby out, all in the rain/snow. It did spit some snow at us today. Luckily God did have a nice old man with a cart in the parking lot waiting on us. As I got in the doors I laughed and thought could I have even attempted the umbrella? I don't think so. It's just one more THING! By the way this is just one of the adventures of the day. Plenty more to come.

My sweet little girl. Always the center of attention. She had a great first Easter, and her dress was an ebay special. :) Never mind the un matching pinks. Here in Indiana we can't go sleeveless yet. She is just the happiest baby I have ever known. I hate to see her indulge in the real world someday. It already breaks my heart to think of the innocence that will some day be lost. Oh to have the eyes of a child again, and see everything the way God intended.
I really enjoy blogs and such. I just wish there was more time in my schedule for it. I have been trying to think up of something to write about but my mind keeps wondering into all the other issues I need to deal with. I fight the thoughts back with it's my time for me. I need to do this for my own sanity. Reflect, put things into perspective, put it on paper. I always feel better after I do this process. It's good therapy.
