10 things I live for - Blogging with a Purpose

It's week two of blogging with a purpose. This week's topic is 10 thing I live for or can't live without.

First, I live for Jesus! The hope that there is in Him. The promise of Heaven. He's my strength when I don't think I can handle one more crazy moment at the house.

My husband - this man. I don't know what to say. He has loved me through so much, when I was feeling unlovable and didn't deserve love.

My kids - Do I really need to say anything about them? I don't know where I would be without these three little people.

Lazy days - hanging out in jammies not rushing to get some where or do something. Just doing whatever we please, those are my kind of days!!

Caffeine - Yes, I'm including caffeine in the things I can't live without. How on earth do you think I survive? Whether it's a frappuccino from Starbucks or an ice cold glass of coke, this tired mama can't wait to get her hands on it.

"Me" Time - Time to read without being interrupted. Going to Hobby Lobby alone. Sewing or playing with my Cricut. Time to blog and read blogs. Time to recharge! Lord, know I need it.

Pictures - I love filling up my iPhone and camera full of pictures. Silly selfies with a tired 2 year old & a silly 5 year old or pictures with Austin asleep in my arms. I'm cherishing these moments because I know this stage isn't going to last forever. I love going to front yard and snappin away while Aubrey shows off her crazy hair, or award from school or just because! I love looking back and reliving that moment.

Watching these kids grow and learn - I am so blessed to be at home with these little ones. This year has been amazing, watching Aubrey go from a 5 year old who knew her letters and could write to this little girl who could read stories to hear little sister! Allyson has been embracing her role as big sister. Talking more and more. Attempting to potty train, depends on the day. Watching Austin go from crawling to walking. Learning about the world around him. I'm seriously so lucky.

Holidays (Family Time) - Holidays now so different than just 5 years ago. We were able to play board games as late as we wanted. Dinner and dessert were running late... no problem. We enjoyed each others company. Holidays are crazy now! Our family has gotten bigger. Candice has 2 little ones. My mom and sisters join in the fun. It's circus now. A whirlwind of a day. It's a different kind of fun. Seeing the fun and excitement on the kids faces makes every bump worth it!

Iphone - I can't live without that darn thing. It's my calendar, clock, and my sanity {when we are out and about it keeps those kids quiet} It's my connection to the world. Yes, that's lame but true. When that silly thing isn't by my side, I feel like a piece of me is missing.


What are some things that you can't live without?
