Hello, everyone! My house is booming with my two granddaughters. Their names are Ella and Jura. Let me tell you about them.
Yesterday, both girls (Jura and Ella) visited the Mall of America for the very first time! They were so excited to see the mall. In fact, they had an interesting conversation in the car on their way there. Jura has been having bike rides with her mama and she is totally loving it. One of them even went to the playground the other day and had a good swing.
Sometimes, their mommies forget where they are but when they find them, they shower them with so much love and attention. I just heard Jura’s mommy, who also happens to be my daughter (in case you missed that), gushing on how her hair is “so smooth”. And oh, their hair is always done. Sometimes their mommies go to their room and lock themselves in there. They will then comb their babies’ hair and decorate them with all sorts of accessories. These also take naps in special places like well-padded baskets. While they are asleep, I’m only allowed to speak in whispers. Any loud talking from me will supposedly wake the babies up.
Ella and Jura are a part of our lives and I can’t deny it. Meet them…

Jura belongs to girl number 1 while Ella belongs to girl number 2. They keep them really busy, which totally works for me!
In church, we learned about the importance of being kind even when we are wronged. We looked at the story of King David who showed kindness even to people that wronged him. We were encouraged to go out and show kindness to someone in the next twenty-four hours. It could be a phone call, a quick text message or a heartfelt smile. Just do something that will make someone feel loved.
My week started well. I homeschooled, cooked, changed diapers and hosted playtime outside today.
Next month, August, I plan on sharing only very healthy recipes which are also delicious. So watch out for that! The last time I ate completely clean for one week, I lost a few pounds and I felt really good inside. I plan on doing that for a whole month this time and I’ll be sharing that journey with you in my kitchen and on my YouTube channel.
Talking about my YouTube channel, please make sure you SUBSCRIBE if you haven’t done so already.
Each morning this week, tell yourself “today is a good day for a good day” then go all out and make it a good day. No matter what happens, try to live each day as though it were your last.
That’s what’s up with me, friends. How are you doing?
