i have no clever title

The weekend was very good. Though, it seems like it is always good of late. Definitely, always busy and always good. There was lots of BBQ-ing, family, friends, laughing, joking, eating, and lots of heat. Tons of it. I don't really care for the heat.

Monday is here and I am beat. Super beat. Dead tired. I have my to-do list ready to get as much done while my mother-in-law is here for just a couple more days, so I will stay busy. 
a to-do list
And seriously, all your comments and emails about my blog is so appreciated and means so much. I think from time to time I struggle with the idea of blogging, as I just write about my life and things I do, and I get afraid that it all seems so self-consumed and self-exalting. I always pray that it wouldn't be so and that Christ remain my focus and I am able encourage others to love Him and see Him more because of it. I don't think that I am the most creative person or best person out there, and I so acknowledge that there are far more wonderfully talented people than me. Plus, God is the one who enables the things that I do. I am just really glad and blessed to be part of this community. Seriously. You all are the best.  

That's my little rant for the day, but just all this to say thank you for all your encouraging comments, especially emails. I will try to reply as soon as I am able. I am really so touched and I wish I could give all of you a hug. Just pretend I am able to.

Now, off to start another busy week...

A few days left of the giveaway and I am so excited that you all are just as excited about my best friend getting married.


  1. I think your struggle is a common one among fellow bloggers. I sometimes sit for hours trying to find something to write...something with meaning. I fear I will be a boring "mommy blogger" assuming that everyone is just as excited about my day as I am. Or am not, depending on the day!

    Ironic, though, because since discovering your beautiful blog through Artful Blogging, I continue to hear it is what you were quoted saying...that everyday...every THING is a reason to CELEBRATE.

    God has His hand in all we say, do, write, and create. THAT is worth celebrating.

    Have a beautiful Monday...

  2. Sometimes little rants are the best. It allows you to speak your mind and be honest. And your little rants are always so sweet - that's why I enjoy reading your blog so much!

  3. What a beautiful post! I sure enjoy your blog and I can just feel of the love you have for life and for your family through it. :)
