Thank you, Penny! :-)
I'm so glad, Amy! And thanks, as always, for your very kind comments! :-)
Oh I hope you do, Penelope - I'd love to hear more from you! Thank you for sharing your thoughts and for your very kind words ... Blessings!
Thank you so much, Angie ... :-)
Michelle, I am so glad this re-read has been fruitful for you! I am feeling the same way - re-learning lessons I've let slip away, and refreshing myself a little! So very glad to have you with me on this journey ... Blessings!
Thank you so much, Penny. As usual your words humble and encourage me! Hope all is well, my friend ... :-)
Carol, thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on this chapter! I loved reading about your take on this topic especially as you, like I, have older kids. Yes, they do still learn from us, don't they? And come to think of it, I still learn from my own folks! I do on occasion pick up that magazine - it is SO lovely. Thanks again and I look forward to sharing more as we revisit this lovely book! :-)
Thank you so much, Judy! :-)
Thank you so much, amy! :-)
Thanks, Amy! :-)
Thanks, Amy! Yeah, and I like to call grocery shopping day ... marketing. It just sounds so much more pleasant! ;-)
Amy, this is a really great question!! I usually just carry up the items I'll need in the morning as I head up to bed. (homemade planner, day designer, pens - maybe my binder too) Sometimes though, especially if LB is really sleeping in and I can get a lot done, I'll need to grab a few more things. I'm running up and down the stairs anyway - to grab another cup of coffee and to check in with Earlybird who's hanging out in the family room. :-)
Hi Sherrylynne! We just grabbed random branches that were strewn across the yard after that big storm we had, but I think they are mostly oak and maple branches. The are quite sturdy and have lots of nooks and crannies for plenty of blessings! :-)
I follow her on Facebook and Instagram ... and I am eager to read her subsequent books once I finish my MSfG re-read! I love her voice ... she writes so beautifully. :-)
Thanks, Helena! Yes, I forgot to mention in my post that the planners are from last year so dates might be a little off. I will try to update and reload them so they are accurate for 2017. Blessings to you! :-)
Hi, everyone! As I mentioned in this post, we are keeping our Thanksgiving countdown pretty simple this year. I love setting a mood of gratitude and purpose in our home throughout the month of November ... but the reality is,... Continue reading
