Went and cracked the blinds to let the morning sun peek through and crawled back into bed. The sound of the ceiling fan whirling around was the only sound through the house.
One thing about having kiddos that are night owls- they sleep late. Which is really nice.
There is really is nothing sweeter than snuggling in the morning.
I pull my tshirt blanket (that I sleep with every night) all the way up to my chin, curl my legs up and start thinking about life.
Chris is upstairs in his office working, Ainsleigh is asleep in her crib and I have Aiden sound asleep by my side- the dogs both at the end of the bed.
I could pick the sweet smell of Aiden sleeping out of a million.
When it comes to myself I’m a perfectionist- I’m my own worst critic. When I went to Blog Sugar last year, I’ve written before that something I really took away is that I don’t have to do it all. It’s okay.
Life has thrown me a few curve balls lately and something I wanted to tell you all is that the Dallas Conference is still happening- website is finished, speakers are lined up (and have been praying) and the agenda is penciled out…. but it can’t happen this year (2012) like I first hoped. I know waiting on God’s perfect timing is what needs to happen. So when the time is right we will pick a new date for the event and a new launch date.
Something else that has been hard pressed on my heart this week is the making and living of a beautiful life. Not like what you might first think when I say that- but more taking the time to cherish, enjoy, celebrate every little thing.
I desperately want to live a beautiful life…and to inspire others to do so.
What are ways you do this?
It’s interesting because the people I am most drawn to have a beautiful perspective on life, marriage, God, parenting, etc….it’s like fresh air for my soul.
I read this post yesterday and it also made me think about how to create a beautiful life for my family…for Chris and my kiddos. I loved this post. Maybe it’s the artist in me but as a very visual person I can totally appreciate this.
Also… for those interested.. This is Chris’ 11 min Short Film made for the 168 Film Festival inspired by Luke 21:16-19. You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers and sisters, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death. Everyone will hate you because of me. But not a hair of your head will perish. Stand firm, and you will win life.
He won 4 awards for this film!
