What God has called you to do!

I'm one of those people that struggles with saying NO. 
I love helping people so as a crazy people-pleaser when someone asks me to do 
something my automatic response is typically to say YES. 
The result of that automatic response is that I often end up 
with way too much on my plate and have no one to blame but myself!

The older I get the more I'm learning that:
1. The world will not end if I say NO. 

2. People will still like me if I say NO to them. 

3. If I ask God before taking something on, I have plenty of time to
 accomplish the things HE has called me to do.

 It's all that extra stuff I add to my plate that He 
hasn't called me to do that makes me overwhelmed! 

This is one of my favorite quotes of all times- one that I must remember always!

Snow cone FUN!

My sweet new friend Crystal {who is a fabulous photographer and can be found here on FB} took pictures at my RAOK birthday party so that all of you who couldn't attend could see the precious faces of those who enjoyed the free snow cones!  
I put the pics together into a video so that you could see how adorable they were 
and how much they enjoyed those snow cones! 

Weeks later, seeing these sweet faces makes me tear up. 
They were so cute and so thankful. 
It was truly an amazing day!
To those of you who donated towards the snow cones- 
THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!
Words are inadequate to express my gratitude to you- you truly are a blessing to me!

Autocorrect Mom FAIL

I was at dinner last night with some friends and Madison started texting me 
asking when I would be home and if I would bring her something to eat. 

I was distracted and talking and trying to text at the same time 
{which was obviously not a good idea}.
Here's part of our conversation: 
Autocorrect Mom FAIL!

Wag More. Bark Less.

I saw this quote on a teacher friends shirt today and absolutely loved it. 
Imagine if we all followed this simple advice? 
wag more

Thank YOU!

Early this morning I woke to find several sweet emails from blog readers.  
I'm pretty sure that most people don't  have any idea
 how much I love and treasure each email from blog readers 
but y'all they mean so very much to me!
It makes me super excited to see them pop in my inbox! 

To hear how my blog, ideas, and printables have made
 even a small difference in the lives ofpeople I don't even know- 
gives me more joy than you could possibly know!

I know it seems so silly to be so touched simple by words in emails
but when your love language is words of affirmation 
know that it means a TON!

I realized this morning as I read these emails that I 
needed to say THANK YOU to you sweet readers. 

Thank you for reading my blogs,
 for leaving sweet comments and ideas, 
for emailing me questions and thank yous. 
Thank you for being so stinkin' sweet!
Each of you is truly a blessing to me and I am so very thankful for you! 

And for sweet new reader Kristi who emailed me early this morning  
I want you to know that I am praying for you! 
{and here's a little something I made this am just for you!}
Every Little Thing

He Is Risen!

My Random Acts of Kindness birthday party yesterday was truly amazing! 
My heart was so full all afternoon and I can't wait to share all about it with you.  
As soon as I get all the pictures I will tell you the details and post all the pics.
Those sweet little faces were so stinkin' cute I could hardly stand it! 
For now just know it was an absolute blessed day 
and something I will definitely do again next year!
Thank you so much to all of you that prayed for the day, 
donated towards the sno-cones, 
and/or joined me for the day!

In preparation for Easter this coming weekend here is a little printable 
I made of one of my favorite verses, Matthew 28:6. 
Such great joy in the promise that He is RISEN!

Oh and I posted some a fun little Easter treat on my other blog yesterday. 
Hop on over to get a free printable copy if you'd like!
