Comfort food at it's finest was on the menu for tonight. My mom and dad had taken the kids out to dinner by the time we got home so I made myself some good ol' comfort food. I used some leftover mac and cheese and mixed in some chicken breast and broccoli (to make myself feel a little better about it!). I had some garlic bread on the side, too. Mac and cheese has been my favorite since I was a little girl! My mom said I would eat a whole box if she'd let me. Problem is, I still could!! After that, I had 2 bowls of ice cream. *Shameful, I know!* I've got to cut back on the desserts...I've been hitting them a little hard lately. But today I think it was particularly needed. So I'm off to bed to dream soundly...thankfully. :-)
Hey! I'm Erica, a 34-year-young stay-at-home mom of 3 wonderful, active children and a breast cancer SURVIVOR. My husband, Jack, is still my high school sweetheart and we have been married for 17 years. I live in a tiny town in Missouri, taking care of my family and soaking up every minute in every day. I am a lover of Jesus, running, coffee, girl-time, positivity, dancing, fruits & vegetables, shopping trips, and sports. I begin each day with the intention on pleasing the Lord and because of His amazing grace, at the end of the day, He loves me anyway. So on my blog you will be seeing my 3 favorite little people (and my favorite big-guy!), my hopes, my dreams, and my prayers. Sometimes it gets a little crazy around here, but if you are up for keeping up with a busy mom, let's go!

Ah, Sovereign LORD, You are my hope, the Lord of my life. I wait on you and move cautiously in my decisions. I'm not ashamed to trust in Your guidance, Lord. Instead, I feel thankful for the encouragement and surety You give me. As I trust in You, I'm filled with peace. Throughout the day, my thoughts often turn to You for direction and strength. In quiet confidence I find strength only You can give. You, dear Father, are my Rock and my Defender; I shall not fear. I know in whom I believe and I'm persuaded You keep me close to You day by day. I look to You, I doubt not in Your unfailing love for me. Thank You. In Jesus' name, Amen. -Anita Corrine Donihue
