Thank you, thank you, thank you for your encouragement and your prayers. I woke up this morning feeling so refreshed and energized and - most importantly - no longer feeling afraid. I can feel your prayers in a very tangible way. Thank you.
So many things are making my spirit light and happy this morning. Here is a sampling:
I know Occupy Wall Street is all serious business. The happenings on Wall Street are sorta bread and butter for our family, so I'll stay out of that commentary, but this very serious side issue is one that must be dealt with too, don't you think? It's time we call out Cookie Monster on his cookie greed, amirite?
Sometimes when I need quick pick-me-up, I search "polka dot dress" in the vintage section of Etsy. Well yesterday, I found this darling number at Grandma Marie Vintage and marked it as favorite. I mean, look at it. How can you not smile?
I went back to admire it some more, and it's gone! I'm kind of sad, but also smiling to think that it is going to a good home somewhere where someone will surely smile each time she wears it.
(was it you? tell me honestly!)
The multitude of incredibly helpful links y'all are sharing each week for Your Green Resource. Wow. The recipes alone shared this past week are enough to inspire and keep my busy for a while!
Of course I want to play with them at Parenting. Illustrated with Crappy Pictures. Made me smile and tear up a little bit.
I'm clearly the last person on earth to discover Rubyellen and cakies, but for heaven's sake. Love at first sight for me. Her four beautiful daughters, their lovely names, every single bit of her About page ... It's all just making my heart sing.
What is making you smile this lovely October weekend?
