I found this on my bed this morning…none other but from my beloved Emma, who I believe has an incredible heart for people. In my life, I’ve met so many people who constantly just want to receive, people who even keep encouragement to themselves, people who hold tight to money that by grace they’ve been blessed with…and only a very small few who naturally LOVE to give. The givers are the ones that teach me about humility, sacrifice, and what it means to be a blessing. And I’m not talking about someone sharing their large fries over a meal; I’m talking about people I knew who: gave their guitars to young musicians who were just starting to learn used to shake my hand before I left for college and surprisingly slipped a $20 into my hand surprised us with money during Christmas or birthdays during unexpected seasons when we needed a little more than what we had gave up their comforts for a cause funded other’s people’s college education, medical bills, etc. out of their own willing heart, gave a new Coach bag away to someone who’s never owned one before treated our kids to a day of fun and […]

To make it more creepy, Perze and I both felt this strong urge to sing a special number with the lyrics, “I’ll fly away, oh glory, I’ll fly away. When I die, hallelujah, by and by, I’ll fly away.” I cannot absolutely say that I welcome death with a smile. Not just now. I think about my daughters and how much they will miss me. Questions will come up wondering if they’ll remember me, my messy hair, my dry lips, my hugs…I think about my […]

So i have a cool idea for your thanksgiving dinner!!! I’m doing it myself with the girls for our dining table centerpiece. You just have to find a branch with tons of twigs, precut leaves of different colors, and tape. I’ll post ours when it’s done. Hopefully, I’ll have it done by next week, right in time for Thanksgiving. http://www.pbs.org/parents/fun-and-games/activities-and-crafts/thankful-tree/ Thankful Tree . Fun Games for Kids: Educational Online Games For Kids . PBS Parents | PBS www.pbs.org We’re celebrating the beauty of fall by creating a festive centerpiece for our Thanksgiving table. Kids will love to help draw, cut and color the paper leaves. They’ll also have a chance to see just how much they have to be grateful for. I hope this fun craft will become part of your family’s Thanks…
As we were closing all the lights tonight to get ready for bed upstairs, Zienne said, “let’s leave one open for kuya platypus ( Fitz Seggay ), ok. Leave one on.” #sothoughtful #thinker
