I got a list minute phone call to come help in the nursery at our local MOPS today. I said yes and then prayed that I would get put with babies and not the toddlers. If you know me at all, you know that I LOVE babies!! Love kissing 'em, love hugging 'em, love snuggling them, I just think babies are the best thing ever!! I must love them since I had four of my own! :-) Those babies grow up though and when they do, they want to play and they tell you no and they don't want to snuggle, I don't like that!! I loved my kids as they grew up and became toddlers and then little kids, but they were mine so they were special! If I have a choice though and get asked to watch a baby, the answer will always be yes!! It was so great to hold these little babies today, feed them their bottles, rock them to sleep and then send them home with their grateful Mom!! I know what a ministry MOPS was to me and I love that I finally got my butt back to help on the other end!! Today I am thankful for:

1) Being able to give back and hold some babies!
2) Being done with my own babies and having 4 children that make my heart swell with pride!
3) I can almost taste Wednesday and the middle of the week!
4) Sparkling Shiraz that is perfect for the holidays!
5) Staying in budget at the grocery store!
