Peaceful and gentle, lambs have been used in religious imagery for millennia. Lambs are baby sheep, an animal tended by shephards since the dawn of history. As a lamb, you tend to stay together in a flock and graze on grassy land. Lambs don't mind being led and tend not to go off on their own.

You were almost a: Bear Cub or a Turtle
You are least like a: Squirrel or a Mouse



This was a fun quiz.  I needed to have some fun this evening.  The week has gone pretty well.  Thank you so much to all who have been wishing me peace and means the world.  There are a lot of undone parts of my life, pieces of me still waiting to be layed down into place.  I know this, which is a pretty good start.  I have dreamed of taking off into the White Mountains and doing some major

soul searching, and then coming to some eye opening conclusion about something that needs changing and then changing it.  The most wonderful thing is that I love my family and my life so much that I would not be able to stay away long enough!  My girls are my life, and to some, that may sound as though I only live to be a mom....well, honestly, that may be true.  But then, I sometimes wonder about that part of me that used to go out and have fun. Adult fun.  My husband and I haven't been able to go out on a "date" for about 2 years.  I think we went to a movie last...some date!  Can do that at home.  We've only danced together once ~ at our wedding reception!  Yet, I have to remember that this is not his choice...he has to work! 

Alright...I will wallow no more this evening.  Mai and I are home together tonight.  Big sis has gone to a musical performance of Guys and Dolls with a friend.  So I have had some alone time with both of them, as Mai was at a friend's house yesterday...It's important to have quality time with them both, one on one, without the sibling rivalry.  Constant sibling rivalry, that is.  I think they take a lot of their own issues out on each other.  It just hurts to see them so upset with each other all the time.  When it's good, it's very good, and short and sweet.  ***all normal, all normal, all normal***

Well, I need to get us ready for bed soon...we have to get up for early double header field hockey games in the morning.  Hope all of you have a great, relaxing weekend!

I do wish you peace, and joy, love and laughter too. Hope down the way you get time to yourself, if only for a little while. Whenever I get overwhelmed or need to sort things out, solitude and silence were blessings to me. I tried to take time away from family, if only for a day. It wasn't quite long enough but it helped a lot. Love your picture. You're so pretty.

Ummm, it says I'm a squirell. Not so sure about that! :o)
I don't know if you remember, but I took a completely along sabbatical this summer. If you can swing a few days, do it! It's amazing, how much your mind can clear the air feels better, and you go home refreshed and looking at things in a new perspective.

I think going "out" is much over-rated. The older I've got the less inclined I've become to go anywhere and do anything. To me the perfect evening is a nice homecooked meal and a movie curled up on the couch. Perhaps when my children are older I'll get a second wind, then it'll be look out hubby!

I think it's entirely normal for us to want to stay in and be at home. Family, and home, the concept of home, is so precious. Why not spend time there? I know tonight, for instance, instead of going out like planned, my wife and I are staying in...why? Becase we need some us time. That's perfectly OK. Going out to dinner at TGI Friday's is date night for us - and we're OK with that, too :). It's being in one another's presence, not the presents we give one another that is most important.
Peace and love,

You are such a good MOM.  Your children are VERY fortunate.

You are a loving caring person who feels deeply . . .  and sometimes feeling deeply means getting hurt, but I wouldn't change it for the world.

I love your journal.  Beautiful photos, love the one of the moon.  OOOOOOHH.

Thanks for poping over to my place. Are you talking about the White Mountains of Maine and Vermont? I used to hikle up Mount Washington as a lad. Great place. Enjoy those sepcial times with your children and the whirlwind of activities. It'll pass all too soon and only reside as fond memories.

Be well. And Bless you for your work and patience as a para.

You are a magnificent person, and I am so very thankful that you've become a friend through reading my journals. You are a person to be thankful for!
With peace and love,
