Reminded today...

Today I was reminded why I started this blog. A mom wrote about her last days with her daughter before she was unexpectedly taken from this earth and into the arms of Jesus. If you have a little one saying, read to me, dance with me, paint my toe nails...then do it. And cherish the moment, every moment with those you love. Not living in dread or doom, but in joy over the Life God has given and the Eternal Life through his Son...

Go and visit, meet this little girl. Pray for her mom and the twins who will arrive on this earth and never know their big least in this life.

Tiffany and Jamie and so many others

I have the best neighbors in the world. but this past week one of them blessed me twice. My neighbor Tiffany kept my kids so I could run off to a Thirty-One Gifts show. My hubby was working late and she took on a house full of kids for me. 2nd, she invited my E to an amazing birthday party, over at Cookies and Tea for Me. I am not sure she has ever had so much fun. She pranced around for days after that party.

Thank you Tiffany for loving on my kids a little.....

My other neighbor Jamie is supportive of EVERYTHING I do. From buying from my company to showing up at all my fundraisers! She is there for it all. I really do have the best neighbors.

Saturday we were able to raise a lot of money for Child Evangelism Fellowship. Because of a lot of people like Kristina and her sister and her friends, Martha Pam and other ladies who served pancakes. Running on their feet for 2 hours. To all the guys who cooked and let us boss them around. And especially to Lindi who set the whole thing up over at Applebees.

I am truly blessed by so many in my life. Thank you.

Still Tell Them Tuesday!

I have not forgotten Tell them Tuesday. I have just let my busy life, my full plate and my ever running over cup to keep me distracted. But this weekend a mother lost her 4 year old daughter, her only child, in a terrible accident and it reminded me about the shortness and preciousness of this life.

Appreciate and love those God has given you. Drink in the special, fleeting moments with those you love. Don't waste your time. But continue to set your hope on Christ. You must, because this life is such a vapor.

So today I thank my mother in law. She helped me out of a tight spot last night at the doctors office. And made going to the doctor with 2 little ones a special time. My girls were blessed with time with Grandma and even spoiled with some new toys!

Thank you Sandra for showing up in more ways than one.
