The ramblings of a woman,
wife, & mother, who loves:
Jesus / my man / the three,
learning about parenting /
mamahood / childbirth,
cooking foods healthy /
international / yummy,
pretending to garden /
write / design,
attempting to run /
exercise / lift weights,
enjoying traveling /
camping / adventures,
finding ways to love /
serve / sacrifice for others.

It is not to say she does these things
with style or grace, or even skill.

The many sides of Miriam, well, 3 sides anyway.

1. Last Friday night I was all out of sorts. We were all in the living room, the kids were playing all around us, going in and out of the living room, as I was chatting to Josh about my funk. As I was folding some clothes, telling Josh my woes I watched as Miriam left the room headed for the kitchen and I continued to fold in the living room and the boys continued to do something noisy in their bedroom and Josh continued to talk to me. And immediately, Miriam came back into the living room, carrying my Bible, hands it to me and says, "Here you go Mommy," and then leaves the living room to go the boys' room. I can only assume she was paying attention to our conversation though she was "doing her own thing" and then she heard and need and wanted to meet it the best she knew how. Thanks Miriam!

2. Being one of 3 sickies in our house over the weekend (i.e. Josh, Jeremiah, and Miriam) we have had bowel sagas galore. The other day while, um... passing gas, Miriam says, "I'm blowing bubbles in my underwear." Priceless.

3. Playing Hide and Seek the other day, Miriam found herself a nice little spot. And to make sure she wasn't scared, brought a flashlight in with her. Smart girl! (While not smiling when I snapped the photo, she was giggling right before and after I took the photo. If only they could designed a camera that was fast enough to catch smiles the first time!)

    Oh my goodness- good thing I read this at home and not in some public place. I am laughing so hard at Miriam's comment- blowing bubbles in my underwear!!!! Now that's funny!

    Now, I was there and got to witness the whole thing, and I would say her classification of the sounds she was making, "bubbles" was right on the money. Let's hope that doesn't become her nickname someday!

    Miriam is just too funny! I love the picture of her all curled up in the shelf. Reminds me of Randy on A Christmas Story.
