Defeat


Yesterday was not a good day. I will spare you the whiny details, but miscommunications led to unfair assumptions which led to an unhappy client, which had me feeling something between anger and guilt. Anger over the undefined, yet unattainable expectations people have, and guilt over that ever-lurking-feeling of "could I have done more to make them happy?"

Simplest of Suggestions


If you're like me, you love a good "How To" guide. If we're kindred spirits, you especially love the down-right-practical ones so much that you'd be foolish not to follow directions immediately. Which leads us to my point that Camille Style's simple suggestion to incorporate a pile of loose pictures to create an interactive space on your coffee table is brilliance. Sheer, functional brilliance. Read more here.

Friday Notes 09


What a week! With Taylor starting grad school I found myself starting a whole new regimen to stay on top of work and anticipating his needs.

Moved By Words


I stumbled upon a blog I used to follow and read an endearing quote in reference to helping someone find a relationship with God,

"With the Lord as my strength I will stay the course! [They are] very special to me. I can't imagine heaven without [them]! With you on one side, us on the other and the Lord before [them, they] have nowhere else to go but up!"

My heart stopped at the thought of expressing to someone, "I can't imagine heaven with you!" Doesn't everyone deserve to hear that? And wasn't that how Jesus truly and authentically made everyone around him feel? I pray to live a life with that heart for those around me! So if you need some motivation to hang in there, know that heaven would NOT be the same without YOU!
