I have been reading The Inspired Room for months now.  I love her Beautiful Life Series.  Don’t we all strive for a beautiful life, you know I guess we all don’t.   I tend to forget that there are adults in this world that love D-R-A-M-A.  There are women who are catty and pety.  I can’t tell you how happy I am that those type of people just aren’t in my life.  My beautiful life consist of three great kids, one wonderful husband, an extended family that is supportive and loving, a network of women that are hardworking and honest, a group of girls (a posse as Vicki would say) from church that I know I can count on 100%, a friend that I have known for over 20 years that will randomly send a text that says, “I’m free for the day.”, a sister who sends wonderful fun sunglasses for me and The First Born.  Now that to me is a BEAUTIFUL LIFE!

This past week I really focused on peace.  I didn’t let anyone or any situation take my peace away from me.  I am very much at peace with my decision to leave my current job and literally can’t sleep thinking about the opportunity I will be starting. 

I have spent the week working on my “Love Fest” for the month of February.  I am growing as a person by reaching outside of my comfort zone with these post that aren’t my “typical” blog post.  I still love the post from the 1st and how Pastor Buriff shared his heart and looking forward I think the 10th is going to be special. 

I need to come up with some Valentine’s Idea or my love life isn’t going to be beautiful…any suggestions??



Don’t you love it?  Make your own hearts.

I can’t pass up the opportunity to include Ellen and Gladys for a Friday Funny, afterall what kind of life would we have without humor?  Ok I admit I find it more funny then some because I relate.  I love Jesus and I drink a little.

About Michelle

I started my blog as a way to connect with other paper crafters and of course it has gone a totally different direction. I've been able to share my experience as a mother, my hurt and disappointments over not having a relationship with my maternal unit, my walk with God and how knowing Him has changed me and continues to help me grow into the person I strive to be......
