On my heart today

If you really knew me....

You would know that this picture of my girls makes me smile every time I see it.

You would know that my heart has been SO heavy since hearing about the tragedy in Colorado.

You would know that I have been so saddened by the horror of that incident, that thinking about it leaves me breathless and in tears.

You would know I that I have a tender heart, and that sometimes, that softness is more of a burden than a blessing.

If you knew me, you’d know that I keep imagining Craig and I in that theater, and wondering what would we have done.

If you really knew me, you'd know that I love life.

You would know that Craig and our girls are my world.

If you really knew me, you’d know that I believe that life should be enjoyed, not rushed through.

You would know that our house is filled with lots of music, lots of dancing, lots of cuddles and LOTS of laughter.

You would know that hubs and I try to surround our girls with JOY, while teaching them about compassion.

You would know that I will always choose spending time with my family over doing work.

If you knew me, you would know that this weekend I cancelled all plans and spent the day at the beach with my family… and that I LOVED it. 

That I only cooked dinner once this week, and yesterday, we ate giant cupcakes for dessert.

That I just had a glorious afternoon nap with my girlies, and that watching them sleep, holding hands, snuggled up to me; they were so beautiful, I cried.

You’d know that I am yearning for a way to bring peace to people in pain.

You’d know that I’m contemplating sending off all the dresses that I have prepared for the next upload to random customers, just to brighten their day.

You’d know that I am praying for you.

What is on your heart today? 



  1. Beautiful. All these tragedies make me appreciate my life, hubby and 2 girls more and more. I try to remember not to sweat the small stuff and enjoy every moment I have with everyone

  2. Such a sweet post. I'm with you - the madness and craziness of the world makes me hold tight to my guy and my girls. I cherish each moment spent with them!!

  3. Aww this is the sweetest post ever and I too feel pain after what happened and try to give my girls extra cuddles and kisses. We only have this one life and should appreciate every second:)
