behind, and photo of the week 1.5

i am behind. i really wanted to blog everyday, but the past couple of days have been really busy. maggie must be going through a growth spurt because she basically slept all day yesterday. which was not all that terrible, but she would only sleep in my arms. don't get me wrong, i love to snuggle with my sweet angel, but i didnt get anything done. the sun was shining here in seattle and it was so lovely. i wanted to take her out for a little walk, but she had different plans. then last night we started our new community group. the last group that we were a part of grew to about 40 people, and so we replicated the group into 3 different ones. ours started last night. 
today, maggie and i spent some time shopping with my brother. while we were out i got my wedding ring cleaned, and it needed it so bad! i love when i get it cleaned and it is so sparkly. so that here is my photo of the week.

day ten 
 What is Jesus teaching you as a wife, mom, or friend? (Or just woman in general?)
ahh. this post could be so super long. i am learning SO much right now that it is unbelievale. i think that the biggest think that the LORD is teaching me is:: 
i have come to realize that i am a very selfish person. i like things just the way that i want them. as a wife, (and especially a new, young wife)things will not and do not always go according to your plan or your desires. and as a pregnant mama, and now a mama, things rarely go according to plan, desire, or anything. i had got to give up my body for nearly 10 months to our sweet daughter, and thought that i could have it all back after she was born. my oh my was i wrong. i have to lay myself down everyday for the well being of my daughter. bah. it is just so hard. but Jesus has been teaching me joy in the midst of this hardship. he has been showing me how the more selfless i am in all of my roles, the more fruitful i am, the more joy i have, and the more wisdom i gain. i could post alot more on this topic, but i am so tired. (our baby bird woke up 3 times last night, which is rare because she is 11 weeks and has been sleeping through the night since 6 weeks.) i think this is one that i will come back and elaborate on another time. but i am working on being more selfless, and giving more of myself joyfully to my husband, my daughter, my LORD , and my friends\family.
