Yesterday, the girls decided they wanted to make a cave in their bedroom! (At first, I thought they were building a tent but Emma Grace corrected me. It was a cave and they were little bears. "Mama, we are hibernating!") I love those sweet little bears! David and I were convicted this weekend about our own 'hibernation' this winter. We seem to always stay so busy, and our calendar seems to stay filled. When we finally do have a 'free' weekend, or a day 'off', we usually stay at home to rest and enjoy our family. Not that rest and spending time together as a family is a bad thing- it really restores and energizes us! But we've been craving a healthier balance with our time. Our pattern tends to look like this: go-go-go-go-go-go-crash. Repeat. We have been like little bears- when we are at home, we are tucked inside our house, eating or sleeping! wink! Now that it's spring, it is our goal to spend some time enjoying the beautiful weather and talking with our neighbors! No more hibernating for us! "A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger."-Proverbs 15:1 ps- I'm sorry that I have have any spaces between my paragraphs anymore and my 'Quote of the Day' on the side of our blog is all mashed together. It's like our blog has a mind of it's own now! I can't undo the new spacing, nor can I correct it and then try saving it again. It's the strangest thing!
