My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at his feet.

This quote just made my day.  Thank you Spiral Sisters!

I am going to start writing down random acts of kindness that I happen to witness or be a part of...

1.  I was thrilled to be able to join Finn's Fall Party last week.  The theme was outer space.  Each child got a small pumpkin (donated by a kind parent) to decorate like an alien or planet or other space related work of art.  Finn's awesome friend Ava (who has a broken arm in a big, clunky cast) took young Stella under her wing.  She gathered materials for her, explained the project carefully, AND offered to help her poke holes in the little pumpkin for feathers and such...(with only one working arm I might add!)  She was sooo sweet to little Stell that it made me tear up a couple of times. 
Stella was sparkling with happiness and excitement.  Ava made her feel pefectly at home in a class full of big kids!
So thank you sweet Ava!  Your kindness was greatly appreciated!  


My goal is to record kindness as often as possible to remind myself that it's out there.  Everywhere.  Every day.

Stella's 4th Birthday!

I don't  know how I managed to go so many days past her birthday before posting! 

I no longer have a baby!  I have a house full of big kids!  Happy Birthday sweet girl. 

(you will always be my baby!)

Caught in the Red

Dear Debt Collector (from that credit card that I had before I got divorced) : 

Please leave me alone.  I'm doing the best I can.  I will pay you one day.  Just not right now.  I'm sorry.  I hate it too.  But this is the way things have to be for right now.

Peace Out,
