Teens November 06 2019, 0 Comments

So I have read and heard that teens
really get into themselves - it's all about them.
Totally get it.
But I was having a convo with my girls recently when
they were focusing on their hair, makeup etc...
I kept saying - "girls make sure and not to forget about your inside"  - 
And then one of them came up to me later and said "mom I know I shouldn't 
be focused just on my outside but how do I change my thoughts so I'm focusing on other things as well".
I thought about it (shockkkerrrr) and realized once again
I said something so simple that probably wasn't so simple for someone their age.
We can get so focused on things - and we need to snap out of it and redirect
but it can be hard.
I think it's a two fold step - 1) recognize your focus is in one spot and 2) redirect it 
I don't know...I totally get her question and I guess am still trying to figure it out as well.

How cool is this - look at the color on the shelves
and then thru the window that blue that.
And just the overall feel of the room...

Love this woman's look!!
I think I'll let my hair grow out grey at some point
and I want to wear all browns like she is - or all whites - or all grey - or 
all black.
Just solids.  So classy and simple@

Saw this one this morning:

"If you don't like something change it;  if you can't change it, change the way you think about it.

Good one!

As Janice from Friends would say...
"Ohhhh myyy goshhhh"
Have you seen or been to this little gem in our city??
We had a company "crafting" party there a few days ago
and I am obsessed.
Not only can you find the cutest gifts - think letterpress cards (that they make in house from a letterpress from the 1800's), books, pottery and more - 
BUT they have workshops too!
You can bring your own wine, your own food (we ordered the most delish charcuterie plates from local BrieHereNow) and you can craft away.
Such a fun birthday party idea, company gathering or just a great way to spend time with friends.
Definitely check them out next time you are in the Quarry Village!

Last Night October 29 2019, 0 Comments

 I went to a dinner last night with several different
speakers - talking about Young Life - an organization
that teaches adolescents about God.
One speaker got up at the end that brought me to utter tears.
He was talking about Young Life and how he's been trying to spread
God's message over the last 30 years.
And then he put up a slide of a smiling boy - he was in mid air - riding
on a rope swing - he was probably 12.
And the speaker started to privately cry - that cry that you hold in - but you
know it goes so deep.
And I knew. Immediately.
This was his son and he was no longer with us.
I cry now even writing this because I hurt for the dad.  For their family.
Why do things like this happen?  I know there are reasons we don't
know, as we are not supposed to - we are supposed to believe that
this is for a reason - the Man Upstairs' reason - and we are to trust, to have faith
in why it's happening.  But how??????
In an instant nothing mattered but my family.
Yesterday was a sh** day and all of it disappeared, in an instant.
I just wanted to get home and hold my family.
It was a reminder how precious this life is - and how we can get
distracted from that - thru fears of health, parenting, happiness, work...
the list goes on.
Last night re-centered me - I hope this story will re-center you.

Why in the world does this picture
make me so happy??
I think something is wrong with me...
but i feel more connected to this 
picture than to a lot of people.
Is that weird?
I don't care.  I just like it. :)
