Tiny Reminders


When my girls were young we made this precious stepping stone. Something made of simple concrete and stones has become invaluable. How the impression of small feet, engraved such a huge impression in my heart!

We have moved about 6 times since these long ago years. Thankfully this memory stayed physically  intact. The owners of these feet have grown substantially;13 and 15 years old. The other day when my eldest hugged me, I put my head on her shoulder!

Relish these moments. Preserve them. It is never to late to start making memories.

Committed to a life of purpose. Learning to live abundantly. Embracing creativity. Questioning. Delighting in the comforts of home and family. Determining not to settle only for how things are, but how they could be. Writing is part of who I am, so I trust In God who gave the gift to show me how I can serve Him through it. That is my life…one word at a time. Psalm 89:11a“Teach me your way , O Lord, and I will walk in your truth”
