we got a new front door this week.
so here you have little jane saying tonight at the beginning of a new week...
"welcome in, here's a little peek at life in the defoyd home these last few days."
i admit this weekend i may have given a little "high-five" to my kids, husband and some mama friends as we took a breath and celebrated making it through the first full run at fall schedules.
a little, woot woot.
we did it.
we got this.
lots of smiles.
lots of good.
lots of feeling truly blessed.
and as our pastor preached this morning
"not to us, oh lord, not to us but to your name be the glory."
