Don't believe that I am addicted to brownies? Before my husband and I were married I would tell his mom that I wanted my wedding cake to be made out of brownies. It was a running joke for awhile. Ms. Judy was always such a sweetheart and knew exactly what to do to just make my day, so she made this multi-tiered little brownie cake out of brownie bites just for me for my wedding reception.
Monday I attended a local baby wearing group meeting and FINALLY learned what I was doing wrong with my Moby Wrap. It is so much more comfortable for both of us now that I was able to get some pointers. I LOVE it! I have been able to wear Lily at some point nearly every day this week and it has been wonderful.
I did not notice until yesterday how absolutely gorgeous it has been outside. Yesterday I opened the windows, let the breeze blow on my face, listened to the birds chirping outside, and marveled at the beauty Heavenly Father has created for us to enjoy. Sometimes I feel like He makes days like that just for me. I know I do not talk about things so close to my heart very much, but I truly feel His love in quiet, peaceful moments like those.
Today has been equally beautiful so far. I decided that I should pack Lily up and we should both go outside and enjoy nature. It felt so good to soak in some sun, because sunshine for me truly is happiness! I love sunshine! When the sun shines on me, it's like Heavenly Father is giving me a warm hug. I remember when I would sit in music theory class on some days, and a ray of sunlight would happen to shine right on my face and nowhere else in the room. I would always have to look up and smile because it made me feel like Heavenly Father was noticing me. It was a simple little thing that made me think of Him in the midst of my busy day.

I am so thankful for moments like these where I can ponder Heavenly Father's love for me. I do not do this enough and it is so nurturing to my soul! To copy the words of one of my favorite hymns, There Is Sunshine In My Soul Today!
