Think Happy Thoughts!

Today could have been a pretty awful day. A teething baby who cried much of the day, a 3 year old with a cold who spent the night coughing so was not quite up to par, a mama who's not feeling so great herself and a grey, rainy day can easily turn into a textbook 'bad day'. But instead it was pretty good. First of all, I had visitors! Having other people to talk to makes the slowest, crummiest day fly by and a whole lot happier especially when they are some of your favorites! But secondly, I have this little trick that comes in real handy when my day tries to point me down a road of pessimism! Its very simple really. I keep recalling a memory that makes me smile. So today, when I had one child clinging to me crying and another eating her snotty boogers while complaining that her nose hurts, I reflected on the happenings of a few days ago....

Piper and Taitum were playing together in the living room as I was cooking supper. They had found their Daddy's favorite hat and were taking turns putting it on and laughing hysterically at each other. They came out to show me and I laughed with them and took some pictures of their silliness. When it was Taitum's turn to wear the hat, Piper hooted, "Look, Mama! Taitum is a boy!" We made a big deal of how funny and crazy that was and then I went back to what I was doing in the kitchen. The girls continued to play their new found game and I listened in to their chatter. Suddenly, I heard Piper yell to Taitum, "Man! Good girl, man! Good girl!"

And so the smile that I had on my face in that moment, graced my face once again and made me thankful for how the good times make the bad ones much more bearable!

I love motherhood.

We're a smiling family.

I'm a covenant keeper.

I love my husband.

I am above self pity.

I am a nation builder.


Worth more than rubies.

“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”

~ Sally Clarkson

My Hubby

My Hubby
He's my bestest.


She is my compassionate, dramatic, fun to be around 6 year old. She loves to shop, get dressed up fancy and anything else that screams girly!


She is my goofy, snuggly 4 year old who loves to sing and dance and smile all day long!


She is our one year old smarty pants! She does all she can to keep up with her older sisters and to keep them in line!
