We are adopting two adorable girls who have a little something extra, Down Syndrome!
We are excited to add them to our family.
We will use this blog to update family and friends on our adoption progress and fundraising efforts.
Just joining us? Click on the 2011 posts in the archive to find out why we are adopting the girls.

Question 9: What do you do for YOU?

As a mom it is easy to get lost in the needs of your family.  It is important to do things that you recharge your batteries or you will not be a very nice and happy mom!  These are the things that I do for ME.

* I take a 30 minute bath in my big sunken tub EVERY morning.  It is my time to unwind, think about my day, pray, do nothing.

* I go on a date every week with my hubby.  Aahh . . . sweet escape!

* I go to church.  Nothing like going to church to recharge and gain a little eternal perspective. 

* I run an adoption ministry.  I LOVE helping special needs little ones find their forever adoptive families: www.specialangelsadoption.org

* I talk on the phone or go out with my girlfriends when our schedules will allow.  If you can find people who get you and love you for exactly who you are, it is priceless.

* About every 6 months I hire a cleaning crew to come in and get my whole house spotless at once (if only for a moment).

What you do for you?  What recharges your batteries?

  1. Love it. Wow a bath every morning, thats awesome. I take one about once a week, love it. I RUN, it keeps my stress levels low, gives the energy somewhere to go. Praying that things will workout quickly for you guys and getting to the girls.
