Farewell, Ruthie! {Tuesday Talk #91}


Today is Ruthie's last day hosting Tuesday Talk with us.  She has always been such an encouragement and inspiration to me, especially when it comes to parenting.  I've talked about how awesome her ministry MTO (Mom Time Out) is.  Her book about overcoming frustration and anger as a mom is the same.  Ruthie knows how to meet you right where you are - with honesty, empathy, and a prayer in hand.

Thank you for being an inspiration to us, Ruthie!  We are definitely going to miss you!

Be sure to stop by Ruthie's blog Rear.Release.Regroup for some parenting encouragement and to tell her thanks for hosting!

5 Random Thoughts and Favorites

It's going to be a random kind of post!  Here's what has been going in my head and around my house this past week:

The 5 Love Languages
Last week, my husband and I got to see a speaker on the 5 Love Languages, and it was so good!  We took the quiz and figured out our primary and secondary love languages.

I'm 100% Acts of Service.  Nothing says "I love you!" to me like taking out the trash and washing the dishes!  It has been so helpful knowing one another's top 2 love languages!

The best part of the night was when the speaker asked us to write down 25 things that our spouse could do that would speak our love language.  And then we gave it to one another.  This has been so great!  Now we each know exactly what the other one wants!  (Next up, reading the book!)

I would highly recommend that you and your spouse each take the 15 minute free quiz and then share your written list of 25 things that speak your love language.  It will definitely change your marriage for the better!

Do you use the 5 Love Languages in your marriage?

Harry Potter
Right now we are re-reading the entire Harry Potter series!  We just love those books!!!

Well, the original books.  We just got Harry Potter and the Cursed Child from the library and sheesh.  It reminds us of the Hunger Games - it's entertaining, but we don't like it much. 

Ok, ok, we've really just started The Cursed Child, but it's hard to get into a book when you can't cheer on the main characters.  But we'll definitely finish it.  So hopefully, it turns itself around soon.  (Someone, please tell me it gets better!)

Test Results
And we got B's results from his endoscopy from 2 weeks ago!  For the most part, we got good news.  We need to do some more blood work and now see a pediatric endocrinologist.  There is definitely something going on, and I'm happy the doctor is trying to get to the bottom of it.  I feel like we're on a good path to figure out exactly what is going so we can best help B.

Please keep up the prayers!  We have a several more appointments coming up!  I'll keep you all posted.

Colds
Three of us have been tag teaming with bad head colds for the past week.  L has just laid on me for two days straight, my poor baby! 

But I have to share this sweet moment from last week!  First thing one morning, I told the kids I needed them to be my big helpers because I felt downright awful.

Right away, J says, "Mom, we're going to take care of you because you take care of all of us!"  Then, she and B made play food for me.  "Mom, I brought you pink ice cream because you like pink!  So do you feel better now?!"  How sweet is that?!
