Monday Morning

You'd think Monday mornings would be hard for me, especially since my body insists lately on staying up until midnight and waking up promptly at 5:00am every. single. morning.  

But they're not.  

Mondays are my favorite.  I like order after two whole days of random.  

I love making breakfast for my family.  Since we've switched to a 9:00am church schedule, it's harder to make breakfast happen on Sunday mornings, so I thought I'd make up for it with a little more ambitious breakfast today.  It turned out so pretty I even impressed myself.  (Don't think I do this every morning...)

I love starting the day with scriptures.  This is the chapter we're on today...

"Faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; therefore if ye have faith, ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true."  Those words were so comforting today as I thought about all the many things I hope for, but don't actually have knowledge of yet.  

And this sweet, little, almost grown up, mouse of mine totally melted my heart (and her dad's) this morning when she scooted her chair right next to his and snuggled up while we read scriptures.  I can feel it tugging at all of us that these days aren't going to look like this for much longer.  I keep trying to soak it all in so that I don't miss anything.  But the days roll forth anyway and all of a sudden we're one week or one month closer to the part where she leaves for college.  

And then there was Institute.  Oh, how I love going to Institute on Monday mornings.  Honestly, the rest of the class could just not even be there because I'm quite sure every week that the lessons are entirely for me.  

Hope your Monday was great and that the week ahead brings fulfillment and joy.  


  1. I love your love of family...
    And your breakfast too!
    I am with you struggling to hold fast to every moment with our girls!
    Seniors? Not possible. : )

  2. Is that monkey bread? :) We are making monkey bread for a snack tonight!
