After the rain

Saturday 1 October 2011

Today it is a very rainy day and I can hardly believe that the weather forecast for tomorrow seems to be sunny according to my husband.
We’ve had lovely summer days this week, in which I sometimes felt too warm.
But I enjoyed sitting in the backyard watching Yovannah splash around in the paddling pool and having great fun.

And sitting in the park while Ixora was feeding the ducks and watching the kids enjoy themselves on the playground.

But it has been raining since yesterday now and everything is getting wet.
The double buggy in front of the house ,the little slide in the backyard, the bikes and everything else that has been left outside.

And we are getting wet when we go out of the house to do a few things.
But that’s okay. Those few rain drops falling on us won’t kill us.

I’m certain that some day the sun is going to shine again.
Just as I know, things will get better for us.

I hardly earn anything with my AVON business. I'm actually having some payment issues with a couple of reps. They haven’t paid for the products that they received and I’m left with their debts. Our Child benefit payment was suspended last month.
And although we had a reduction in the rent our house might be too expensive to keep since our housemate is moving out today
And there are bills and things the kids need, medical care for the kids.

But I have hope. Hope in the God Who promised to provide in all my needs according to His riches in glory. Hope in the God Who can do much more than I can pray or think.
He has an answer to all of our needs and I’m certain that He will take care of us like He promised that He would.

I’m certain that after a bit of rain. The sun will shine in our lives again
Because after today, there is always a tomorrow.
Glory to God !

Seek first His kIngdom and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.

Love and blessings,

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Mummy, I need your 'pookie'

It’s World Breastfeeding Week from August 1st to August 7th 2013 and this year’s theme is Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers. You can read more about it on The focus is on community support, particularly in the form of peer-to-peer support.
To show support for World Breastfeeding Week, the Irish Parenting Bloggers group is holding a blog march about varied breastfeeding experiences, including experiences with breastfeeding support in Ireland. This inspired me to write a post about breastfeeding as well.

My breast feeding journey
When I was pregnant with my first child, I decided that it would be a great idea to combine breast- and bottle feeding. But in the hospital they convinced me how healthy and important it was to breastfeed exclusively and then I decided to go that road. I got a breast pump to express milk so my baby could get a bottle with breast milk when I was out and about or for the scarce times that I would leave her in the care of h…
