I’m a week behind!

oh well. 🙂

I got this lovely, lovely necklace from my dear husband on Mother’s Day. I’ve worn it every day since. The same little saying hangs on my dining room wall – its a pretty popular piece of art seen on many a blog, shelf at Target, etc. But I’ve liked it from the first time I laid eyes on it. It’s a good thing for me to remember. A piece of good advice for all of us, I think!

As a person who usually tended to overreact as a rule, I’d like to think I’ve become much more calm and collected. Which is due to anchoring influences like the Holy Spirit, age and experience, my very unflappable husband, wonderful friends and occasionally, a self-imposed time out.

I’ve also come to realize that generally, if its not one thing its another and this world is rife with issues, drama and problems. Thankfully, I’m also promised that I have a Helper who has overcome the world and there is far more to this life than meets the eye. So I do try to keep calm and carry on, imperfectly though it may be.

my life is full and beautiful because the Lord of all creation has seen fit to take me as His own. I have a wondeful husband, a sweet puppy, a beautiful baby boy, a lovely house in a small town, and two great jobs that allow me to mostly work from home. I throw the occasional temper tantrum, love good food, bake drool-worthy treats, and have a love affair with French-pressed coffee and vanilla lattes.
