a good read

My camera is currently getting fixed from me dropping it. YES! I will wear the strap around my neck next time, husband:) It's been quite freeing to just not have to take photos of anything for a week or two. But I do miss my camera, especially since Caroline is toddling around here.

I came across this post I have posted before- but it's such a good read, you need to read it again.

Blogs and Women.

 Jenny has such a gift with words- and this truly has been on my mind these days. Especially as a mother, it's easy to compare ourselves with other mothers. But we all have our gifts and need to be content with what we have been given. Also along with that- finding out our gifts and using them to the fullest extent for the glory of GOD!

On another note... I am dreaming of garden salads and strawberry limeade.


Happy Wednesday!

Caroline Turns One

I've baked cakes for my nephew's birthday parties for years. Yesterday, I had the honor of making my little girl's first birthday cake. 

It was more than just a celebration of her turning a year, it was celebration that we could have children. I had some health issues before we were married and we weren't sure if we would be able to have children. The ever present question after having an ovary removed, "Will you be able to have children?" I would always reply with an hopeful answer- but it the back of my mind I prepared myself for the worst. After much pain and waiting, we were blessed with a child! We had something to celebrate... so we did.

Praising Our Creator!
