Breakfast with a side of Memories
Chelsea is at a sleepover.
The boys are still asleep.
Fox News is interviewing Franklin Graham.
I am just about to dig in to a sweet
and intentional breakfast.
Normally, if I eat breakfast it is
a bowl of cereal. That's it! No
frills...that is fine. I have never

The yogurt...well, it is good for me!
No ancient memories...just some time
at the store with my three children yesterday.
Mikey really wanted some yogurt.
Who knew that fruit on the bottom was his fav?
Well, I do now.
Better get going before the tea gets cold.
Hope you have a special day today.
Take some time for a few precious
memories and enjoy!
