Lately I Find Myself...

Lately i find myself waking up a little earlier than usual.
I find myself saying a prayer in the morning before my feet touches the floor.

I find myself taking time to slow down and admire nature in all it's splendor.
I find myself watching the sunrise and smiling
I marvel at the fact there are flowers still growing while snow covers the flowers.
I marvel at the sunset....the brilliant colours of yellows, reds, oranges.....so vibrant!

I find myself turning off the electronics and listening to my husband when he is talking to me.
I find myself wanting to kiss longer than a peck.
I find myself wanting longer hugs and caresses.

Lately I find myself wanting to spend more time with my friends and Godson.
I find myself wanting to talk to family more and longer.
I find myself longing to be closer to family members who are far away.

I find myself wanting to push my body a little bit more than usual at the gym.
I find myself wanting to taste my food instead of rushing it.
I find myself drinking more water because my body craves it.

I find myself not wanting to force myself to blog when i don't feel like it.
I find myself missing checking in longer with my blog friends.
I find myself wanting to build stronger relationships via blogger.
I find myself posting more on twitter and less on facebook...

Lately I find myself enjoying all that life has to offer with Mr. Pancakes!
Lately...

Lately I find myself lost in thought as to what our lives would be like when we finally have kids. I've always been one to stop and marvel at just nature around me now, I find myseld daydreaming in the midst of all that beauty around me.

I love this Mrs. Pancakes! Taking that time to "find yourself" brings meaning to life and helps you relax more. I'm trying to do the same.

Lately I find myself marveling at my children's thought processes. I find myself wanting to do more for them. I find myself trying to get more in tune with myself.

This is great that this is happening in you, when we wake up early like that I remember my mother would tell me at a young age it's God trying to get your attention. So use it the right way sometimes in prayer, singing a song to Him because He woke you up early He want you to give Him thanks. God is awesome

Lately I find myself...tired of school, weary of the influence of television and the internet, discouraged about my lack of discipline, worried about the future but hopeful all the same...

Lately I find myself very inspired by YOU, Mrs. Pancakes!
