Homemade Bread…mmmmmmm

breadI LOVE homemade bread. I found a great recipe and made some loaves yesterday that taste like Kings Hawaiian Rolls. They’re so yummy. I never thought I’d be one of those women who loves to cook and especially loves to cook from scratch. But I do. ( I just had a minor emergency of spilt milk but I’m back)

Something about cooking good things for my family makes me feel good. I always thought it would be so difficult to make homemade bread but it’s really pretty easy. If you can bake a cake, you can bake bread!

If you’re interested in the recipe I found, let me know. It’s pretty delicious!

Mother’s Day…

I believe that moms are never given enough credit or recognition. It seems that no matter how hard I work or how many hours I put in, I don’t even begin to touch what Melody can handle. She wakes up, feeds our kids, teaches them about shapes, colors, numbers and animals. She plays with them, feeds them lunch, puts them down for a nap and then begins her work with me. The kids wake up and she tends to them, playing games and handing out snacks. She cooks dinner, cleans the kitchen and then puts them to bed after story time. She has been thrown up on, bitten, peed on, slapped and has never given up. She is an incredible mother and causes me to strive to be a better person each and every day. She doesn’t gripe or demand attention or throw fits or cry when she doesn’t get her way. She does all of this in one single day and then gets up and does it again with the same smile and passion as the day before. This is what mothers do. I want to say thank you to my wife for being this kind of mother to our kids, and to my mom for being this kind of mother to me. I am forever blessed that you are in my life. I love you both., happy mother’s day.

I love my wife…

Melody and I attended a marriage retreat this past weekend. What an amazing time. I am blessed that I get to work with my wife (at home) and we spend every day with our family. We are still growing though. If you ask us, we have nothing figured out.

At first, I was hesitant about going on the retreat. Our family dynamic and the connection between Melody and I is really great right now, so I though why do we need a retreat? Well, we went and I was blown away. The beauty of my wife was amplified in my heart. Not just her physical beauty, but the beauty of who she is. The way she cares for our children, maintains our home and her passion for me to succeed. She is my biggest support and I am her biggest fan. She is strong and patient, kind and generous. Thank you Melody, for being my wife and my friend.
