She Loved

This morning I'm suppose to be sitting figuring out what to talk about in a women's study at a church this weekend.  Funny how when you need to talk to others, you almost always end up talking to yourself.  Or at least that is what happens to me!  I end up doing a lot of self reflection.  The more I tried to figure it out the more this song that Sherie Easter sings kept coming to me!  

Someone once asked
If only you knew
How short life would be
What would you do?
What would they say
When God called you home?
What would they engrave
Once you were gone?

I hope they would see
What I've done in my life
Who I've cared for
And how I survived
I hope they'd say

Chorus:
She loved more than anything else
She loved with all of her heart
She loved everyone she believed in
She loved...oh she loved

She loved the Lord
And served all her life
A sacrificial mother
And an honorable wife
She gave all she had
And through every trial
Made life much sweeter
Because of her smile

Everyone will see
What she's done in her life
Who she cared for
And how she survived
I'm sure they'd say

Chorus:
She loved more than anything else
She loved with all of her heart
She loved everyone she believed in
She loved...oh she loved


She loved...everyone she believed in
She loved..oh she loved
Oh...she loved



That is how I want to be remembered...'SHE LOVED'.  What will they engrave when you are gone?

What I Wore 10/11

To keep myself accountable to getting dressed as a stay/work at home mom, I try to snap a quick picture of what I'm wearing for the day.  Well, I haven't posted in over a month and honestly only have 1 picture to even share of what I've been wearing.  



I'm really enjoying vests so far this fall.  I'm such a cold baby and seem to really need my core to be super warm.  Looking forward to sweater weather, vests, scarfs and ankle boots!

Currently 10/9

I've have been doing a "Currently" post for quite awhile now.  It is fun for me to think about my week. To open up, and show bits and pieces of my daily thoughts, and life.



Abundance....My aunt always seems to have an over abundance of veggies.  She sent me a whole bunch of peppers!  Seeing all those fresh fruits and veggies always makes my heart so happy.


Christian and the kids went out and picked hazelnuts from our bushes also!!!

Fall Ride...we possibly took the last ride of the year on Sunday with a group of friends and family.  I was just getting over an illness but still was a BEAUTIFUL ride, couldn't of asked for better weather.

Currently 10/3

I've have been doing a "Currently" post for quite awhile now.  It is fun for me to think about my week. To open up, and show bits and pieces of my daily thoughts, and life.



Considering...Last couple weeks I have switched my focus of teaching about essential oils from being a 'hobby' to being my passion and job.  I will be honest I've had a few bumps in the road and totally bumps I've personally made.  The chart below has become what I've tried to live by and teach others to live by.  Life my become crazy busy here in a bit since I'm starting considering going to school to be a 'Health Coach' sooner then later.  My own health has taught me so much, I feel like I need to be sharing that instead of keeping it to myself.  


I'll be honest, I have focused quite as much on the base of this chart as I should and that is my bump in the road right now.  

Look at that hair...Hannah had to teach me how to fishtail braid while we were waiting at the eye doctor.  With her length of hair it takes FOREVER but it sure if beautiful when done!


I'm getting old...Ezra is turning into a teenager on me!  Last night he got contacts, which were his request.  Since he went through 3 glass frames in 6 months we figured he was responsible enough to try contacts and it would probably be cheaper. LOL He was excited to show some of his friends last night at 4H since he won't be wearing them to school until next week.


Silly...Somedays you have a good hair day, feel pretty and have to document it. My hair has been SUPER curly lately and feeling dry even though I haven't dyed it for a few months.  So I've been making my own deep conditioner and trying to not sure any heat on it.  

Praying for a blessed week for you.

Word of the Year: Self Care Vol 19

Word of the Year:  Self Care Vol 19

What does self care mean?  Self care is any activity that you do voluntarily that helps you maintain your physical, mental or emotional health.  It can help you feel healthy, relaxed and ready to take on your work and responsibilities.

This morning as I sits next to the lake to work.  I'm so thankful not only for the gifts of the earth I have been given to help others especially moms and their families.  But that I also have a flexible schedule which means I can take 20 minutes and enjoy this beautiful fall weather this morning.  Tried out a new trail this morning that I think I will be taking advantage of more often.  I struggle to fit exercise into my life most days. In the next few weeks I am going to try and make that a priority a bit more.  Sitting in the sun next to a window that faces over a beautiful lake is just an extra bonus!  

These last couple weeks with Kezia in preschool I'm finding that I am a much better mom when I can set aside 4 hours each week to focus on my business and myself.  I always felt like a selfish mom when I did that but not only is she happier but so am I!  It's been a win/win.

Enjoying a beautiful fall morning walk

This view...now it's time to focus and work!

Currently 9/25

I've have been doing a "Currently" post for quite awhile now.  It is fun for me to think about my week. To open up, and show bits and pieces of my daily thoughts, and life.



Working on...Basement bathroom, it is a long work in process.  We did get the shower done before our company came for the weekend. 


Harvest...Lot of tomatoes from the garden!  Looks like I will be making more sauce today.



Enjoying...My sister from North Carolina was here for the weekend.  We went shopping Thursday, then for church she wore her skirt that matches the girls dresses she made. 



Celebrating...Our niece got married this weekend.  Zeke was in the wedding and got to walk down with his friend Elise.  They were so cute. 



Laughing at...These two!  They are both 3 and full of energy and life this morning!  Of course have to get a kick out of Batman.

Fall Tour 2017

It's super warm here today with a high of 90 and high humidity but, fall is one of my favorite times of the year.  Maybe it's because my birthday is in the fall, or the garden is about done, lawn care slows down, or maybe it's just more of a normal schedule then our summer.  All in all it's my favorite time of the year to decorate the house.  Kezia and I went shopping at Hobby Lobby earlier in the week for a few new fun fall decorations.

New Sign on the China Hutch

Finally found a sign for above the stove, just need to hang it yet!

Being my kitchen is overflowing with 'HARVEST'
I felt like the 'Harvest Blessing' sign was fitting.

Fresh flowers always brightens my day!!!!!
