I wish I didn't have to make all those mistakes and be wise...

…name that song! 

Life is a gift. Don't waste it, or fake it. 

Too often I find myself just coasting through the day, totally unaware of the beauty all around me. When you take a minute to look around, and soak up your surroundings, you might be surprised with what you see. I also take for granted my situation in life way too often… as in all the time. I think the saying "You don't know what you got til it's gone" is very true, i might add "you don't know what you got 'til you get shaken up a bit…" 

Unfortunately, even after these revelations come and slap me in the face, I eventually slowly slip back into complacency. Ugh, no. I want to remember all that I've learned. Sometimes being human is just plain maddening. Do you ever feel that way? 

The good news is that I am learning, growing and being molded into who I was made to be- not by me or anything by my power, but by the one who made me and knows me better than I know myself. He alone is writing my story, which is great because he is a best-selling author. Yesss.

Question of the post: What is your favorite piece of classic literature?

Happy Mother's day to a woman whose constant love, willing forgiveness, and sacrificial life has showed me what motherhood, wifehood, and womanhood is all about.
The one person I can share anything with, knowing I won't be judged no matter how silly the issue is, the one I love to live life with and find humor in everyday things with, the one who is my number one fan and encourager, no matter what the venture or project.
I am who I am because of you.
Thank you Mom- for being the best.
I love you.
