Hearts for Home

Today I want to join in with Gae at Cherished Hearts at Home.  Here are her words about her weekly link-up:

"In today’s busy and aggressive society mothers at home are not given much encouragement to be committed to their role in being home.

In my weekly 'Hearts for Home' post I am encouraging myself and others to commit to thinking about what 4-6 things we can do each week to bring our thoughts, prayers and actions to keeping our 'Hearts for Home'."

So my list for the remainder of the week is as follows:
  1. Get started on my mornings earlier, and keep plugging along...in other words, make the most of the morning time.  I did yesterday, and everything went that much smoother!
  2. Read to the children a lot this week; it's a cooler, grayer week, perfect for snuggling up with books.
  3. Have a "Daddy Day"...in which we email pictures of what's going on in our day, call him more frequently, greet him with a treat or craft for him when he gets home...make him feel special and involved.
  4. Get to a pumpkin patch to add to the children's pleasant fall memories.
  5. Make fudge for me for the family.  :-)
  6. Don't get on the computer too much!  (Which means I must go now!)
How are you keeping your hearts for home?

I know what you mean about being on the puter to much. We were without internet for a month and I can't believe what I got done. I have decided to really stick with a certain amount of time and not go beyond that.

Such a nice idea to do for "Daddies"!
Thanks for sharing your sweet family with us!
This is a great list!
I pray that you will be successful in keeping these commitments!

Sounds like you have an amazingly fun week planned. "Daddy Day" is a wonderful idea and I know he will be blessed from it as will your family. ~Alana~

What a great list! I'm sure your husband will enjoy "Daddy Day" and it will give you and your children wonderful memories to look back on!

Dear Jen,
Oh I love the Daddy day. It would be a great thing to implement.
I agree about the earlier mornings. I too find I get so much more done, It is just hard to get up and get moving though
Praying you have a great week snuggled up reading and eating fudge
