In My Bag

In my bag you'll find these things (I dumped them out to take pictures): my iphone 6s, mini notebook, coin purse, a pack of tissue, keys (with a flashlight & measuring tape-in-one keychain), hand sanitizer, and gospel tracts (in 5 different languages). I didn't dump out ID cards, business cards, membership cards, pencil, and pink paracord bracelet. #iphone #notebook #keychain #coinpurse #handsanitizer #gospeltracts #tissue #fmsphotoaday #FMS_inmybag

Sweetness

There's always something to worry about and/or something to complain about....if you look for it.

Choose faith. Choose thankfulness. Choose contentment. Choose joy. Choose cheerfulness.

This Means a Lot to Me

Today, my husband and I went to visit and hang out with our daughter who is in college. We had sushi for lunch and took her shopping for cowgirl boots and grocery. In the evening, we attended Dining Out (an annual AFROTC event honoring cadets). My thoughtful daughter gave me a beautiful journal.
This is what my daughter posted later on Facebook (it made me cry and speechless): "My mom is amazing every day so I wanted to post on not-Mother's Day (although if I wait too long I'll forget, haha). My mom has shown me what sacrifice and "service before self" looks like throughout my entire life. I do maybe one nice thing for her for every 1 million nice things she does for me & she'll still thank me for that one tiny thing. She's always thinking of others and truly cares about people. Thank you, Mom, for showing me what loving others looks like! I love you!"
