Winter Faces

We finally have some really cold weather in OKC. I hate the runny noses (so much wiping! 7 little noses!) but I love the pink cheeks!

Colds are so funny. We can try to prevent them but there's not much we can do once we have one. The body basically works it out on its own. It actually seems that many physical afflictions work themselves out without any conscious assistance from us. Doctors are wonderful, but often merely assist the body's own work of self-healing.

So isn't it interesting that we give so much attention to the body and what ails it (when it generally "heals itself") and yet give so little attention to the ailments of the soul (which are not self-repairing).


  1. Oh yipee...I am so glad you have entered the blog oh sphere. I am also glad that I am the first to leave a comment (something about me that is a little competitive and a little psycho). Yea, we can stalk each other each morning at 2 am...this is fabulous. Welcome to the world of blogging.

    Love you friend!

  2. Kristi, you know I'm all about this blog. It will be great to see all those great ideas that you seem to always have. Good for you to not let this just be a thought, but you put it into action

  3. As expected, your blog is instantly more interesting and useful than mine could ever become. So my last post is simply a link to yours. I can't compete. Here's to you my gorgeous bride and uber-hot mom of 7 - and all your awesome facebooking, emailing, texting, scrapbooking, cooking, bo staff, cleaning, laundry dominating, diaper changing - and now blogging - skills. You rock.

  4. Kristi, can you teach me some of your bo staff skills?

  5. Each one of our girls got the rosy, red cheeks each winter. Why is that something they grow out of? Never understood that.
