I have a jumble of thoughts tonight, so I will just share a little on each of them.
The baby birds are gone now. It is amazing how quickly they grew up. I'm so glad I'm not a mother bird. I don't think I could handle an empty nest after only three weeks of motherhood.
MOPS Year End
Tonight K and I went to the end of the year banquet for our MOPS group. Our Council Coordinator spoke about the book What Every Mom Needs. She did an excellent job. K gave me the book last year, but I've have never read it. After hearing the CC talk, I think I'll take a look at it. It has some good stuff in it.
Oh, I won a $15 Target gift card. I also received a small potted plant and a $20 AMC gift card as a thank you for being a table leader.
I must make a confession now. I think confessing in such a public manner will force me to deal with this little problem. I've resolved to do better, but I need the accountability afforded by admitting it to everyone who runs across my blog.
The problem? My potty mouth. My kids don't usually hear me cuss. However, I have been know to drop a rare F-bomb in the company of adults that really know me well. It infuriates Yardboy to hear me use the F word. He is used to hearing me use other four letter words, although he doesn't use them himself.
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14 (King James Version)
All of my words need to glorify God, even when I am upset, angry, passionate, trying to be funny... I need to find a better, healthier, cleaner way to express myself.
I really want to delete what I just typed. I don't want to be held accountable for my tongue, but I know that I need to stop using foul language!
I can hear my dad's southern drawl, "You just had something in your mouth that I don't even want on the bottom of my shoe."
