this week's take away message


despite my {very} best efforts,
2012 has started out a little bit rough.

i've been nursing a sick toddler &
a pesky dark cloud that randomly
shows up to linger over my head from time-to-time.

never fear,
things turned around yesterday afternoon.

just so happens, i have an amazing mom
who encouraged me so much with her
thoughtful support & offers of service.

and the night ended among customers & friends at work who {through just being themselves} reminded me that my life is full of kind & generous people who have my best interest at heart.

i came home to a house of sleeping people {of whom i adore.}
*the redhead had even built the sick blondie a giant fort, complete with 2 humidifiers, 6 pillow pets & the softest blankies in the house.

it's never too late to start fresh.
i really believe that. ♥

"When words cannot provide the solace we need or express the joy we feel, when it is simply futile to attempt to explain that which is unexplainable, when logic and reason cannot yield adequate understanding about the injustices and inequities of life, when mortal experience and evaluation are insufficient to produce a desired outcome, and when it seems that perhaps we are so totally alone, truly we are blessed by the tender mercies of the Lord and made mighty even unto the power of deliverance." -david a. bednar
