That sleep is really important to me and I throughly miss it. I’m averaging, well, not enough sleep, but it’s been really amazing to see a dream come to fruition so I guess I’ll sleep when I’m dead.
That anytime you take a risk in life you’ll find that any and all insecurities you many have never realized you had slap you in the face at full speed and learning to combat them one by one is hard, but so important. I’m so grateful for #shereadstruth to help me see myself only as my Heavenly Father sees me and not as others see me.
That time with my family enjoying life and just being is what I need to feel alive, refreshed and rejuvenated. This past weekend we packed in a ton of activities. So many that I thought our kids would have a zillion and one meltdowns, complain their hungry, go potty every five seconds…. but they didn’t! Oh, my heart is soaring, it was so amazing!
That I miss my besties! I’m so grateful that despite our busy schedules I know that I am loved and prayed for and that Voxer has saved my life!! Seriously if y’all don’t have that app download it now!! And find me. It’s like walkie talkies but for adults.
That I’m all about making heart connections. I just want to get to know people, hear their hearts and if I can help encourage them to achieve their dreams. Might be the teacher in my coming out a little bit there, but there’s nothing I love better then being able to listen to someone talk about their dreams.
That I’m a passionate person. I’m either passionately happy, sad, angry…. oy! There’s no in-between, but I will tell you what I’m most passionate about… my family, my friends, my new business. Lordy I would talk your ear off about all three if you let me.
That I’m cannot end my day without a cold glass of milk. There’s something so calming and relaxing about that glass of milk and it helps me sleep like a baby. And if I could get a few of Jen’s delightful chocolate chip cookies I’m sure I’d sleep even better. What’s better than milk and cookies before bed?
That I miss watching tv in the middle of the day. I can’t remember the last time I sat down during nap time and caught up on my favorite reality tv shows. It does feel good to fall into bed at the end of the day and think back on all the productive things I got done. Too bad none of that includes the dishes or the laundry.
That I love to have clean laundry, but I hate to fold it. Please send reinforcements quick.
That I’m having a love/hate relationship with twitter lately. I’ve kinda found myself saddened by some of the passive aggressive ickiness that’s going on and even some of the outright attacks against others. I just want to fill it with positivity and encouragement. Can we do that? Or just come find me on Voxer.
That I love summer. All I want to do is sink my bare feet into the sand or the soft green grass and watch my kids run around. Maybe sip a cup of ice coffee with a friend or two.
That I’m thinking that Coffee Date on Friday should be a VLOG. eek! Did I just say that? Umm hmmm. So if I make coffee date a vlog, what kind of questions do you want me to answer? Is there anything you’ve been dying to know about my totally interesting life that I haven’t answered? I’m an open book, ask away.
Most importantly that I’m learning that I love that this blog has become my ministry. A way for God to use me a vessel to help others in anyway I can.
What do you feel like you’re learning about yourself lately?
Wore: beautiful jewelry c/o Along for the Ride. Please check out her adorable shop.
“Hi there! I’m Laura and I’m along for the ride. No really, I am. Along For the Ride isn’t just the name of my handmade shop and my blog, but it’s how I see my walk with the Lord. I am along for the ride He has planned for me, and what a glorious ride it is! My motto is “keep is simple” and I try to make simple accessories that aren’t too dramatic or fussy, but add just a pretty touch of whimsy to an already beautiful you.”
Linking up with my beautiful friend Lindsey for What I Wore Wednesday
