It's really here....and it was completely apparent today as the littles began their Advent Calendars....thank you to BA for those!!! ...Paddy is battling a cold, yet still manages to push through his day...so far of all his tests and quizzes and assignments due today...he has gotten an 11/12 on his Math Test...and he will for certain succeed on the rest of his academic ventures today...because he is just extraordinary...my kiddos are AMAZING...and this is my December Daily today....I am recording the fact that they are amazing and while we haven't kicked off anything..it's the simple things to remember sometimes, it doesn't have to be some life changing revelation...or momentous occasion....their Advent reflection for today....."The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light." Isaiah 9:1
My kids are constantly inspiring me to be better and to keep trying and not give up, because they simply won't accept anything less. They are proud of me for who I am and love me fiercely. I am forever thankful for them...they changed my life in ways I recognize and ways I don't and I do not want to fail them. :)
Lately I have been having inspiration in the oddest of places...well it's not really odd, but I guess what inspires me is odd...and I am always amazed at the result...like it really can't be me creating this....it must be someone else...I hope December inspires you to create great things....whether it's scrappy stuff, crafting or just a smile in the face of someone else.
I want to share with you my blog post for today over at Let's Capture Our Memories....I was actually inspired by this pin at Pinterest:
and it inspired me to create this....just a daily reminder to give thanks for all we have been given:
I used scrap loveliness from Tanya's store....Let's Capture Our Memories!!!
Be sure to check it out, it's a great community, blog, website....it's a whole bunch of scrappy goodness in one place!!!
Happy Monday and December 1st. :)
