{a horse if a horse, of course, of course}

Unless the horse is actually a weird little weenie dog.

{taking a nibble of my apple}

{yum yum}

This was by far the weirdest thing this dog has done. She hovered over  stayed under me while I ate my apple Saturday morning so I decided to let her lick the core, at least that is what the other dogs did. She on the other hand walked right up and took off a little bite and chewed it...then continued to do this until all that was left was the actual core, not the still slightly fruit covered core I leave behind. She even ate around it while I held it. So odd. I miss my furbabies.

Pop says dogs are a product of their environment...is my health freakness waring off on the dogs? Or the dog, because Ellie thinks half the things are absurd.

After I shared my apple with Maddie Mom and I headed out to see Beth Moore's Living Proof Live Simulcast. Might I add it was absolutely amazing. She talked about Proverbs 31:26 and the laws of kindness.  Our memory verse for the day was:

"She opens her mouth with wisdom, and on her tongue is the law of kindness."

We also went over the 8 tastes of kindness{I won't go through my whole set of notes but I want to be able to look back here and remember what I learned}.

1. Kindness is not weakness
2. Kindness is not an action. It's a disposition.
3. Kindness wears down when we do.
4. Kindness looks pain in the face.
5. Kindness is a Savior.
6. Kindness has good memory.
7. Kindness craves an outlet.
8. Kindness leaves a legacy.

Needless to say that was message I needed to hear. Work has been tough this year an I just spent all of today continuously saying Pr. 31:26 to myself. But like I told Jeremy, after lunch today I was sucked dry of my kindness and actually raised my voice a few times. I think I did good though in one situation where I would have normally lost my cool a bit with a student.

Oh a completely other note...I am in love with this chair.
And I want these two chairs to go on either end of my farmhouse table.
Love love love them! I like the size and shape of this couch, but I'd like different material.
Can you tell I am itching to redo the living room? My parents just did theirs and it made me even more anxious to ditch our ugly old couch. I want to buy a house and do the whole decorating thing...but I have got to hold off until we get done with school. I'll be a dead dog before we buy a house in North Louisiana.

That was last weekend by the way, I did but one of those head massagers that I have wanted for years. Needless to say Joshua loved it. I have never seen the baby sit so still...and with his hands neatly in his lap.
