love love love

"We were created in love
to live in love
for the sake of love"
~ don't know who said it, but I like it

Today didn't start out as planned.

A grey cloud in the form of strep has loomed over our household. The cough and scratchy throat of one 2 1/2 year old will be needing some attention. Amoxicillin is involved. Lots of kleenex too. And one super fluffy corner on the couch stacked with princess blankets and extra pillows. Ice cream is sure to work it's way into the equation, one must be armed with leverage to offset the whining.

The upside was being greeted with one super big toothy grin, several open mouthed kisses and one high five from my soon to be one year old upon his wakening. Definitely a silver lining.

Sometimes things don't go as planned. Sometimes the year gets off to a rough start with too much sickness and very full schedules that have you doing a balancing act that would put even the most skilled acrobat to shame.

But in spite of it all, this heart is happy.

If someone could look "under the hood," and listen to your heart, what would it say?

Thought this two minute clip would bring a smile to your face today :)

I'll leave you with this Sweet Bellas, it's easy to love the people we love, but today I challenge you to love those that aren't so easy to love....

"Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you" ~ Matthew 5:44


  1. I love it! When ever I stop by your site you always manage to make my day better!

    I hope thats the song playing in my heart!

  2. Strep sure seems to be going around everywhere! Thankfully I have been pretty healthy so far this year. Hoping your family will be soon!

    And I agree... We definitely must strive to love all people, not just those that are easy to love. Thanks for the reminder.

    Blessings on your day, amiga!

  3. Oh, I loved this bella! Thanks for making me smile with this adorable video and I loved the ending...yes! Halleluia!

    Praying that your household will soon be germ free! Enjoy your Valentine's Day! xoxo

  4. Happy Valentine's Day! Love your wisdom!

  5. So sorry you are dealing with strep! My almost 18 year old had it last week, and she was a big baby! Hope yours feel better soon, and hoping and praying no one else gets it!
    Loved the video!

  6. Wishing everyone there better health soon! The video....amen, sister. Happy Valentine's Day.

  7. Oh, I'm sorry that you've got a sick baby. But that's definitely part of the "love" we're celebrating today--taking care of someone else. Mommy's are really quite good at that. :)

  8. I'm so sorry that you all have been sick...but I know that through good times and bad, you continue to bring love and joy into the world. You are an inspiration. Your words are such encouragements to me. Thank you for sharing with me tonight. Hugs and well wishes from Austin! Happy Valentine's Day!
