The Simple Woman’s Daybook


Monday, January 19, 2009
writing late night before to post for today

Outside my window
crispy white snow sparkles on the lawn and trees

I am thinking…
of the almost 25,000 babies that were aborted in just my state of Michigan alone (that is 200 aborted babies for every 1000 live births) in 2007 and am very concerned about FOCA passing.

I am thankful for
our children having a healthy winter with no serious colds or flus.

From the learning rooms
oldest son is working on his biology college class.

From the kitchen
is a sink full of dishes from our leftover deluxe chips and cheese
and our yummy homemade guacamole bowl that was wiped clean.

I am wearing
brown skirt, burgundy top with soft brown sweater . . .
still in my Sunday clothes

I am creating

I am going
to continue praying for our new president.

I am reading
and reviewing several books which I will be giving away on my blog,
starting this week

I am hoping...
and praying that Jessica has less pain
and anxiety when going to sleep.

I am hearing…
the falling blocks from the Jenga game.

Around the house…
there are endless projects and crafts to be finished.

One of my favorite things…
is the innocence of little ones, such as my baby this past week, trying to share his pacifier with me while I was trying to nap on the couch.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
writing a blog post remembering our stillborn daughter who died on the 25th anniversary of Roe vs Wade
and remembering the aborted babies.

Here is picture thought I am sharing…
thankful for making memories


This is my second time participating with

  1. Thanks for dropping by my blog.

    a CPAP machine is the machine they give to people who suffer with sleep apnoea. it pushes air from the room up your nose at pressure, through a mask you wear at night. That keeps your airways open and therefore keeps you breathing. Which prevents the constant mini waking that go with sleep apnoea and mean you fall asleep less during the day.
    parsley mash is mashed potatoes with chopped parsley mixed in.

  2. It breaks my heart to know that so many babies are aborted each day. Especially since my sister and her husband so desperatly want a child of their own. People just “throw” them away. I enjoyed your post. Blessings!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Just from one post, I can tell that you have a very tender heart. I look forward to reading more in the future.

  4. Thank you for your visit and encouraging comment. I’m sorry that you have experienced the heartache of loss, too, that only another mommy can understand. I admire your prayers for the unborn and I continue to fight daily to bring this little into our lives safely.

    Blessings this Monday,

  5. It is such a sad thing – losing a child – but I think even sadder to carelessly throwing away a blessing. It is a sad time in our world when convenience is more important than life. Thank you for stopping by – I enjoyed visiting your blog & great post!

  6. Thank you for stopping by my blog and taking time to encourage me as I wait for my baby to be born. I like the picture of your daughters’ fancy tea party hair! My girls would love to do their hair like that!

  7. My goodness, could we swap battle stories! My first daughter was killed in a freak accident in my home. After two more girls I could no longer carry children and have adopted twin boys. The girls I do have love foo-foo hair-dos. AND your Delux Chips sound great!
