It's been an interesting week. I've felt a little down about the farmhouse falling through and I'm starting to feel ready for some hints of spring. This weekend I'm looking forward to a date with my husband and Pinewood Derby time for the children. I hope you all have a great weekend!
*My friend, Barbara, gave Grace a bulb to force and she has loved watching it grow and flower! It has made her happy this week. It's astounding what a difference having something green and beautiful can make in your emotional health.
*I love this video about Scott Hamilton's faith journey. I think it's worth the 10 minutes it takes to watch.
*After this post, I realized that many of us are hungry for more support and conversation about raising older children. I think this article has nailed it as to why we don't read/hear/talk about it more.
*I love it when Olympians are excited to get a silver instead of disappointed they didn't get a gold. I also love how passionate Noelle Pikus-Pace is about her family (when the reporter tears up it's hard not to join her!).
*I've been pinning a lot of gardens lately. Years ago, I tore this bow walkway out of a magazine and to this day I still want to recreate it.
Please share anything that has lifted you up this week... maybe more than just me could use it!
