Monday Musings: Fathers and Legacies

I am so grateful to have a wonderful dad, and an amazing husband. My dad was a great picture of who my heavenly Father is, and his love has always been unconditional. My husband is caring and a wonderful partner for life and a great dad for my kids.

What is your father or husband like? What is the legacy are they leaving for those that come behind them?

Tuesday Treasures: SwingStationStudio

I found these beautiful browns and greens from Heather at SwingStationStudio this week and was fascinated:

These lovely purse are perfect for stashing your cell phone, keys, cash, camera, a little sketchpad, ipod, snacks or even doggie treats!

This one has a tropical print outside, with a brown and white dot fabric inside.

And this one has green waves print on the outside, with a dark brown solid fabric inside. It has a keyring on the bright lime green zipper, too! How cute!

Heather can be found here: blog, shop, Facebook, and Twitter.

Monday Musings: Be A Friend

"In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love." -Mother Teresa
"Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless." -Mother Teresa

Have you thought about how your actions affect others? How many kind words have you spoken today? Yesterday? What about your actions?

We have been called to love one another, and people will see our love in action. How well do you know your next door neighbor or the one down the street? Or the family that sits off to the side on your kid's t-ball team? Or the elderly lady at church?

What kind of friend will you choose to be today?
