Feelling < Inspired

Every time I sit down to write a post, it seems like all the thoughts of inadequacy flood my brain. I become overwhelmed by all the things I'm *not* doing.

It's stupid

and I'm tired of it.

When I look at my life, as a whole, I feel overwhelmingly blessed. Blessed beyond measure. 

This blog is meant to be an outlet for me. It is intended to be a place where I can update family, share my heart and grow as a person. As long as those things are being accomplished, I don't need to worry about what other people "think" of me (or my blog). Opinions are like [butt] holes. Everyone has one and everyone thinks everyone else's stinks.

My grammar won't be perfect. I may not have award winning photography. 
But what I will have are memories. My memories. Our crazy life documented. 

As time marches forward, I hope to become a better writer and photographer. 
I desire to be a good story teller and inspire people through the things God is teaching me. 

For now, this is ME. 
And I'm okay with that. 
Take it or leave it.

To top everything off- my sweet Lilly hit a soft spot. Water works ensued.
 Tears of sweet, sweet Kairos joy.
She kissed my cheek. Not an open-mouth baby kiss. 
An, I-love-you-mama-closed-mouth-mwah! kind of kiss. :)

and I'm eating it up.


  1. I think we all go through this....and that's ok. :)

  2. you just hush, woman....... i was just thinking about messaging you and asking when your next blog was. each and every one is an inspiration to me<3 i was not raised a Christ follower, time spent with my parents and time i've spent with my kids cannot be re-done, so i watch, and listen and read and hope that somewhere along the line, it's not too late for memories. you just love those little ones, they're grown before you know it and you can NEVER go back. the rest can WAIT! xoxoxo

  3. Thanks, ladies :)

    Donna- are you trying to make cry??? ;)

  4. The only way I look at you is up....

    1. I'm shorter than you.
    2. I have an enormous amount of respect for you.
    3. I aspire to be like you.
    4. I look at you and your amazing growing family and feel like I'm going absolutely nowhere in life.
    5. I love your blogs.... Its like getting a christmas card/letter each and everytime you update your "viewers".

    From two (bottom) holes to one....

  5. Sarah you are a precious gift from God, and so is your beautiful family! I am truly blessed to be called your mother! AND DONNA you did make me cry...a little... :0)
