Sunshine, Glorious Sunshine

There's Sunshine in My Soul Today is one of my favorite hymns, with the chorus being my favorite.

O there’s sunshine, blessed sunshine, When the peaceful, happy moments roll When Jesus shows His smiling face There is sunshine in the soul.

I also like the third verse.
3 There’s springtime in my soul today, For when the Lord is near, The dove of peace sings in my heart, The flowers of grace appear.
I felt so good today.
Yesterday wasn't such a happy day so I am basking in the bliss that is today. :) I'm just happy and my heart is smiling. I finally got back on the exercise wagon this week. I haven't worked out since River was born. It was time. I worked out Tuesday and then again today, while Flower was at preschool. I have also concentrated on some other goals this week that are pretty tough for me and here, on day three, things are looking good. :)

After I picked up Flower from school we went and got a Jumba juice together. Then after we got home I got the girls dressed and we went out for a walk. It was River's first walk. We soaked up the sunshine. It's very good for my soul.

Aside from the sunshine, the other motivation for our walk was to try out a new carrier. I've mentioned Walter before. He's one of the nicest people I know. He showed up here on Monday with a princess castle for Flower. Then this morning while I was working out he brought me in a baby Bjorn type carrier. I have wanted one because none of the carriers I have(three!) are front facing and River seems bothered that she can't see out. She loved it! We walked up by the empty canal. Unfortunately this lame mom forgot to put socks on her so her feet were cold. I held them to keep them warm but it cut the walk short at only 30 minutes. I could have spent hours!
Flower has a hard time keeping her eyes open in the sun. I gave her the hat for Valentine's Day. I love it on her!
River loves her new carrier!At one point a ton of geese flew over and it was so loud. I love the sound they make, especially in big groups. We had fun watching them and imitating their sounds.

I love the sun shining in both of these photos!

It was so nice to be outside! Bring on Spring!

I totally agree with you! I am one that likes the snow spefically, but not the cold. I am ready for spring. Lorelai loves to be outside and I don't like going out when it's cold!
