inspiration : thursday thoughtfuls

Good morning all! Last night was kind of a rough night. I was messing around on Pinterest (when I should have been in bed asleep) and I came across this quote about little boys and their mommas that made me cry a little. Then I got to thinking about BB and how much I love him and want to keep him forever and how much it would hurt if I had to let him go back to his family. Let's just say I was an emotional wreck and it was probably a good thing Joey was already asleep. 

That just goes to show a couple of things... 1) I should go to bed earlier when I'm supposed to. 2) Quotes are super meaningful to me. Which is why I keep up with this weekly feature. Because someday I may put a quote on here that speaks to you in just the right way. 

Okay, enough of that... on with the show!!

It didn't take long for this movie to become one of my all-time faves. We haven't watched it yet this season, but we will. Oh and be on the lookout for an upcoming post about my favorite Christmas movies and Christmas music as I continue December's theme of favorite family Christmas traditions. :) 

Amen. I love this. 

I love getting completely lost in a book. I hate having the book end. 

Yep... so very true. Sometime things just are or are not. You can't explain why, it's just how they are. 

So true. I'm learning this... slowly but surely. I've always had all of these goals and dreams and wanted to do and achieve them all. I'm learning I can't do everything, but I can do a lot of anythings very well. I'm working on ridding my life of the things that are just so-so and focusing on the things that excite me and inspire me. Which means Joey will be doing all of the house work from now on. ;) Do you think that would go over well? haha. 

Well, I've got a busy weekend ahead. Today/tonight we will be cleaning house and getting whatever last minute groceries I need. Tomorrow we are having some people over for dinner, trying to get to know some other people in the community. Saturday I will be baking for part of the day and then Saturday evening a friend and I are going to watch Breaking Dawn. I haven't seen it yet and I'm SOOOO excited!! Sunday is church and Sunday evening is our church's Christmas Party. I'm pretty excited about that! Lots to do... lots to do. It's going to be a jam-packed, full of fun kind of life for the next several days. :) 


  1. What a quandary you are in with BB....I hope everything works out for the best in the end. He is one lucky boy to be loved so much by you. I need to post that you can do anything but not everything quote on my wall. I take on way too much and end up just driving my self (and my husband) nuts because I am spread too thin. I hoping in the new year I can put things in perspective and start prioritizing.

  2. love the elf quote (and the movie).

    i called my husband yesterday when mele kalikimaka came on (because it drives him nuts and makes me smile, and makes me smile even more because it makes him nuts). sang along really really loud on his voice mail.


  3. Wonderful post. Elf is one of my favorite movies and there are so many great quotes in that one!

  4. Hi, :) I'm Sarah (I found you on the Castteam blog)
    Thanks for sharing. I read back a few posts to find out who BB is, and my heart goes out to you. My family did foster care when I was young. Our first foster child came when I was only 13 yrs. old. I can't even begin to express how much I loved that baby. It was really strange, especially since I was so young, but I loved him like my own child, not a sibling. I loved feeding him, I begged my mom to let me get up with him at night, and he was all I could think about when I went over to play at someone else's house. We only had him for several months, but I was crushed when he returned to his birth mom. I find comfort in that he is in God's hands. I know that baby came to us for a reason, and I pray for him every time I think of him. When I think of him, I'll pray for you and your little foster baby, too!
    God bless,
