Faithful Friday

Hey gorgeous people.

Have I told you lately that I love you?

Maybe I haven't. I have been a little busy.

A little overwhelmed.

But what I wanted to say to you was this as you start your weekends:

1) You rock. Don't ever let anyone tell you that you don't. They are just jealous and trying to "out-rock" you.

But they can't.

2) When you are feeling low and lamenting all the things you DON'T have - or all the things you so, so wish you had, just remember that we all need a good pity party sometimes.

But all pity parties need to end. Otherwise you will be that annoying drunk girl who doesn't leave and nobody will like you.

3) Have perspective about what and who matter. I have lost perspective more times than I can say and I am sure I will probably be guilty of it ten minutes after I hit "Publish Post," so please know I am not preaching.

I will remember these exact words when I cuss out the lady who just cut me off on the way home, I promise.

4) Laugh a LOT.

5) AND Love even MORE.

The other day I wrote a post about our neighbor's son. Stan and Sherri are rocks for their family and all that they have asked is for as much positive hope, thought, prayer and love to be directed to their son as possible.

I asked the same of you. And you guys all delivered.

Thank you.

Like I said - you guys all rock.

Here is the update on Declan. He is full of grace. Full of love. He is a fighter and I cannot want to see his smile when the day comes that he can be home with family.

Please continue to pray?

Love yourself. Love your parents & Grandparents. Love your siblings. Love you friends and neighbors. Heck, love your mailman.

Life is too precious not to.

Losing perspective is becoming irate that your husband, who just left to run an errand you were desperately avoiding, left the window open. Left the window open on a 30 degree Chicago day with a sick baby in the house.

I think he was trying to out-rock me. Unsuccessful, thanks to this post.
