At it again

I popped on over to Ann Voskamp’s blog again this morning for the first time in a while. Because it is a new month today, she has posted her September Gifts calendar. Might as well dive in here and there and keep my gratitude meter appropriately running. The fun thing about this morning’s dare is […]

Yesterday my heart was overflowing with gratitude for the moments I have with the ones I love.

Education, my son, and the carpool line

#754 A heart of compassion. #755 A reminder that the Lord has me in a certain position at work for a reason. #756 Morning carpool duty!  Sounds crazy, especially when the temps are fairly chilly in the mornings these days but I receive pleasure greeting sooooo many children first thing in the morning.  I have […]
