January's focus was to become more organized. I officially met all my goals as of this morning. I have organized all closets (except Ysmaille's by request), all drawers (desk, bathroom, bedroom, etc.), the shed outside, and more. I've also read two books. And it's only the 16th. My goal for the second half of this month is to see if I can keep up with it. Now that everything has it's place it should be easier.
On another note we are gearing up for Amirah's birthday on the 26th. We are having a "woodland fairy" themed birthday. I just love planning birthday parties. Ysmaille and I were the gracious recipients of a handmade kitchen set made by a family friend over 30 years ago. We have repainted it and hope to have it done today. I hope she loves it. It's certainly been a labor of love on our part (more so Ysmaille than me since he's the painter in the family).
I am just thoroughly enjoying this stage of life that we are in. It's a transition for our family for sure, but I feel God's hand so strongly upon us that even through hardships I have a song in my heart. He does not forsake those He loves. It's like He's giving my soul a hug this morning.
