“There are always flowers for those who WANT to see them.”
🌹🌺🌹 •

It’s amazing how much many blessings you see in life when you choose to see them. We’ve been working with the kids lots these days in the area if gratitude. They’ve taken time every night for months now to journal at least 5 things the were grateful that day. It’s been a great practice and stretched them to see that they can, should be, and actually are grateful for more than the things they have or get. They write about being grateful for how hard Daddy works or the dinner Mommy made. They write about how grateful they are for a friend’s kindness, lovely weather, and a warm bed because they saw someone who clearly didn’t have one that day. It’s sparked such great conversations and prayers. They needed a bit of #perspective...they’re getting there and for that, I’m grateful. #gratitude #parentlife #fridayfeels

This simple little capture sums up my kids saying so much more to me than what’s obvious... she is crazy strong, both physically and mentally, opinionated, often argumentative but will use it to fiercely defend those she loves. She’s always camera ready and wearing pink but makes it clear that it’s only because the shirt says #futureleader•
🤣 
He is suuuuuper sensitive, generous...and often decides to be camera shy. He loves hard and would give all he has to make his sister smile. He’s a ball of energy that must be channeled into sports for the good of the family, 😬 and his shirt says somethings that no doubt boasts about his athletic skills. This picture is pretty much my kids in a nutshell. She will always lift him up. He will always have her back. 😊😭😘 #siblingbond #bigsisterlittlebrother #lovemesomethem

Focused UP ⬆️ Feeling challenged to get out of my comfort zone in every way these days which is causing me to take a step back and assess some situations. Feeling stretched spiritually, as a wife, mom, friend, and as creative and just grateful that unlike the times of my youth I have enough sense to draw close the Creator for some way through. Unsure of what lies ahead but pushing through which is super uncomfortable but totally necessary. We shall see what we shall see...keep pushin’ my friends!!! 😩🙌🏽😊 #tobecontinued #lampuntomyfeet #phil413

When I met TJ he had just moved here as an aspiring #singersongwriter. He’d been on that roller coaster for quite some time and was giving LA a shot. As time went on,  he became more focused on being a husband and having a family. Music was put on the back burner. But, this man was put on this planet to sing. I’ve mentioned more than once that it’s how he got me in the first place. 🤣 Well, something has been reborn in my husband. He’s writing again, picking up his guitar almost nightly, and filling the house his voice. It’s the best thing to see happening and I’m super excited to see where it goes. #mcm #lovemesomehim

#tbt 💜 There are those times in life when you experience a thing and then scroll through the pictures on your phone like, “Did that really happen?” This right here definitely fits into that category. 😁🙌🏽🤗 As first jobs go...not too shabby. 😜 What about you, throw it on back and share your #firstjob. 😊#issathrowback
