I DIDNT help him get dressed this morning.

My wonderful husband has been saying for weeks and weeks that he needs to go running and that he wants to start running again. Well it just so happens that there was a fun run this last weekend and Jordan got roped into running with his cousin, uncle, brother, and sister in law. (Notice I didn't want to run) Lets just say he did a great job and ran faster then I thought he would run the 5K. It had to have been because of his awesome attire....Maybe?!

What a Pair these to are!

The full effect!
I REPEAT.... I didn't not dress him. He decided this outfit all on his own... I only nudge him to do it. We will have to see what the next race has in store for the two of  them.

So It is time for an update as to what has been happening for the Scow's. We spent 4th of July this year with my family.... we ended up taking down a big branch in the tree that had broken off slightly during a large wind storm. Here is how it transpired,

The branch had to be taken out by the truck. The rope came undone the first time because those boys I guess forgot how to tie a real boy scouts knot. But it finally fell.

On to the next matter of business, Jordan and I needed to tame our beast of a backyard. He was nice enough to let me use HIS gas powered weed whacker! I only jammed it like three times. I was covered in grass from head to toe! It was so disgusting but it was still quite fun.

And that is a brief update as to what has been happening to The Scow's. More to come later!

Frustration led to Thankfulness

Do you ever have those times when you feel like you cant do anything right? That you are never good enough? That you will never add up to what everyone wants you to be? Well guess what.... that is pretty much how I feel. I wish I was good enough to meet your unrealistic expectations but guess what I cant I'm human. No one can ever meet these expectations given. No One is perfect! The only perfect person was Christ and He has lived and died so that I didn't have to be perfect. He made it so that I didn't have to meet these expectations of perfectness. What a cruel world we live in. My goal is to be more Christ like. Not to set these expectations that no one will reach. I want to accept people for who they are and what they can do. My house doesn't always need to be spotless and I don't always have to be dressed to the nines so why should I expect others to do the same. We need to love unconditionally. I hope those with whom I associate with know that they don't have to be perfect for me that I will except them for who they are and for the things they accomplish whether it is waking up on time in the morning or winning the Noble Peace Prize I will accept you! You are perfect to me!
    Thank goodness for a wonderful husband who reminds me that it is OK and that things will work out! Thank goodness for Adele's cover of Make you feel my love to remind me as to why I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful husband who is there for me and will always see me as perfect enough for him! I'm so very grateful for him and for how much he loves me. I don't know what I would have done with out him. I cant believe that we have been married for almost a year. Time sure does fly by. He is the best thing that has ever happened to me and being married to him for time and all eternity is the greatest gift I will ever receive from him!
