Delight in the everyday stuff!
I have discovered that if I am not joyful today, there is nothing in tomorrow that will bring me joy. I can't think "I will be happy if I get, or if I do, or if I become..."and be joyful right now. Happiness is a choice, and I can be cheerful exactly where I am, every minute of the day! Praise God!
In an attempt to capture a bit of our spring & summer, I posted some "everyday" pictures. However simple they may be, these photos speak volumes to God's faithfulness.
His blessings are all around us in the everyday moments...sometimes we just have to stop and soak them up.
|My poor photo subjects were suffering from the cold in early spring...I caught them huddling for warmth when they thought I was busy shooting Kloe's pics. Kimmy is such a sweet big sister! There's a lot I can learn from her.|
|Looking out the window early in the morning I saw Bay learning from some awesome mentors (and probably enjoying some "man time"). Sure, there are only three brothers in our family, but they are man enough for all eight of us girls!|
|Daddy, giving Uncle Wade and Aunt Joscelyn a "blossom blessing." =) Spontaneous and random is the way we roll.|
|Kare-bear takes "follow-the-leader" to a whole new level. Glancing outside I saw her turning yard work into an awesome game!|
|Best buds playing house. Way too cute for words.|
|This used to be Kyla, Kelsey and I! Our whole family is constantly entertained with these three girl's shows.|
|Getting ready to serve late night snacks at The Achademy. I love these girls! We have way too much fun together (if that is possible).|

|Happy Birthday, Daddy!|
