miles & i do this thing.
when he obeys really well, i pour on the praise and say "i've got a happy heart!"
and when he disobeys really badly, like, i don't know, kicking his sister's face,
i say, "wow, i have got one sad heart."
and my face is so obnoxiously sad, i don't even want to know what it looks like.
but he has started to get it. and now when he sees a big smile, he says, "happy!"
and when there is distress anywhere around him, he frowns so big and keeps saying, "sad!" until we acknowledge.
anyway...tangent already and i barely started.
today i'm going to share with you my happyz and my sadz.
i have a really happy heart when there is a z on the end of the word instead of an s.
these stickers are calling my name.
love heather's new shop.
i am in mourning over jef & emily breaking up.
i loved them and had a feeling in my apparently wrong heart that they would make it.
you think i'm joking but i'm not.
my girlfriends & i have spent way too much time agonizing over this.
there may be another blogger or two that also has the sadz over this but i won't say names.
i want to stare at this picture all day.
i have a heavy heart.
and for the last week i've prayed for a few things harder than i've prayed in years.
good because it's bringing me to my knees.
bad because i should be praying like this consistently.
but, man, i'm a burdened girl right now.
i'm carrying burdens that other people are carrying and my heart is just heavy. really heavy.
with a small ache. and sometimes a big one.
but like i said on friday, he is GOD no matter what.
and he called us to follow without compromise.
i will trust in that.
:: this picture ::
i have a few feelings about it.
my friend lorie posted it on instagram because she likes to torment me.
you know me and my dislike for cats.
but it did make me laugh for a second.
tomorrow is family picture day and lorieloo is doing it.
it's gonna be a really good time.
unless she brings her new friend along. and then we've got the sadz.
tell me your happyz or your sadz. but if you say a sad then you've got to end with a happy.
that's the rule i just made.
