How to Make Your Own Jam without Pectin
It's taking all of my commitment to sit down and make today's post. It's been a full day of a baseball game and a Father's Day get together and I am beat after an exhausting emergency room visit with #4 last night. Big brother was being a sweetheart and was taking his little brother outside to play just because that's all #4 wanted to do. Doors and fingers just don't mix and we ended our night with an almost 7 hour emergency room visit that consisted with my baby being hooked up to an IV and all those monitors and sedated while an orthopedic surgeon repaired his pinky finger! He was a trooper and thanks goes out to all the prayers and help last night.
Commitment is when you push through when you least feel like it. It's about making time for something that's important to you. I worked today on coming up with a recipe for this SO I am making myself get a post in! :)
