I want a new comforter set... no I am thankful for what I have!

Do you ever have days where you look around the house and think I would love to replace this and that and oh if I had more money I would get one of these days?  I know it is very silly for me to WANT instead I should be thankful for all the things I do have.  I am very thankful!  God has blessed me so much and I am so grateful!

For instance it would be kinda fun to replace my cheap shower curtain with a nice elegant shower curtain.  Then I think about it more and with 2 kids what purpose would I have to needing an elegant shower curtain especially when I live in an apartment.  LOL

Another thing I love buying is comforter sets.  I love getting into bed with fresh sheets.  I would love to buy a yellow comforter set  or even some faux leather pillows, but then I am reminded that my husband sweats while he sleeps and my fun yellow comforter and sheets would soon be discolored from sweat stains.  I love you dear and your sweaty spells.  LOL, I guess we will stick with our brown sheets.  :)

Do you ever have to sit back and rethink your motives.  I am very thankful for the things I have and there is a huge difference between a want and a need.  I am going to start teaching my daughter more about wants and needs but first I had to assess myself and I realized I fall into the want want want attitude.  So I am changing to a grateful and happy attitude and praise God for the many blessings he gives me daily!  :)   Who knows someone might just be led to bless us with one of those many things that I think I need even though I am blessed with a perfectly good one now.  :)

Thank-you Jesus for providing for all of my needs!  Help me to not be selfish in my wants but to have a heart of thanksgiving to  you!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
