working on---spending more time with the LORD, getting a better balance between keeping up the house/toys etc and patience with my children is always an area to improve for me! I'm satisfied with my savings for my family with all the coupon tips/stockpile and look to increase our savings even more as our family grows!

working on being a better steward of the Lord's money he blesses us with...and yet...I am satisfied with the financial restrictions of being a one income family because it allows me to be at home everyday with my precious children.

Hi Le, it's Sally's friend, Rachel. I decided to visit your blog when I got home and was tickled to see that there is a giveaway!

Let's see... the "working on" list could be oh-so-long, but I am working on making the Lord a more intentional part of my life. I need to integrate Him in all that I do, say, think, etc. It is hard even though I have been a believer for a long time.

I am satisfied in my friendships and how I keep up with my girlfriends both near and far.

Nice to meet you today! :)

Come on lucky #7!!

Improving, oh the list is long! Patience, I always tell my dad I get my lack of this from him. Also, my tone and situation handling with my girls. We seem to be referees for the girls a lot these days!
Satisfied with the relationships with God, my family, husband, and friends. I am very blessed!

Sally said...

Ooooo...this would be a fun one to win.

There's lots of things to improve on. I will say probably watching my tone/volume with my kids. I'm finding that more is caught than taught and they catch on pretty quickly--esp the bad stuff.

As far as what I'm satisfied with--how much we read to our children. By the time bed time is over my throat is sore. We go through a lot of books, which is a good thing, but it does take A LONG time.

working on: more time in my Bible, patience w/ our son, being more organized, keeping up with the "chores..." it seems the list is endless these days. I'm satisfied with the wonderful, Godly friends the Lord has blessed my life with.

Working on: a ton of things!! the most important one is trying to get into a habit of daily devotion time.

Satisfied with: my monthly meal planning. Love how much easier this is than asking "what's for dinner tonight" every night!

I am content with the time I spend with my daughters inside our home, but I am trying to improve on quality one on one outside play time with them.
