I went to a very good friend’s birthday party tonight and I have to say it’s the most fun I’ve had in a very long time. Being around other moms and their kids remind me I’m sane. Kids we’re running everywhere, dads were taking care of them, moms just relaxed and ate and drank (not me FYI, just a taste of wine was enough). Also, it was a wine and yoga pants party. My yoga pants were a bit more tight than the last time I wore them but it was nice to lounge around in them.
Reminiscing about when Gibbie couldn’t/wouldn’t talk much. Her favorite thing to say was “apple pie beach.” One can only assume she wanted to eat apple pie on the beach. She also really wanted to go to Cancun which I think she thought was Sea World.
Realizing this afternoon that I have to start meditating again. How do I do that with a three year old who doesn’t nap without waking up earlier? I guess it’s before bed time but I always liked mid day meditation because it was a mid day recharge.
Just rambling because I’m exhausted and have nothing better to do.
Three year old already yelled at me because I shut the door when papa left for work. She wanted to but she was in the bathroom. When I said sorry I was yelled at for saying sorry when she was sad. One day I will get it right. For now, I’m happy I didn’t lose my calm. Progress!
The Sheep and the Goats
31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
Tell me again what you think we should do with the immigrant children?
Things that made Gibbie happy:

- Knowing a few kids and grown ups.
- Snack time.
- Music time.
Things that made Gibbie sad:

- Mama not packing her a lunch so she could stay after with some of the other kids to eat. (Mama didn’t know about this one.)
