Whatchoo-Wish-You-Were-Wearin’ Wednesday : Pale Pinks and Wonder Woman

Whatchoo-Wish-You-Were-Wearin’ Wednesday : Pale Pinks and Wonder Woman

So I sat down last night, rarin’ to go after a great BodyJam workout to prep my latest WWYWWW post. I had a topic in mind, and visions …

… and then I put Downton Abbey on as background noise …

and that was the end of my focus.

It was the third time I’d seen that particular episode, so I’d say it’s official : I have a problem.

Anyway, the few moments I could pull my eyes away from the screen, I found this blouse.

Isn’t it lovely? It’s delicate and airy with just a touch of pink. {Love!} It reminded me of that Wonder Woman episode that features WW back at home on Paradise Island. Everyone’s gorgeous, but as a little girl, I didn’t focus on that as much as I did those dresses. Long, flowy, willowy fabrics, and I so wanted one.

Unfortunately, my mom just kept buying me argyle bell bottoms.

 

Wonder Woman

Am I the only one who remembers that episode? I tried to find a quality still off Google but it wasn’t happening.

Anyway, I’m sorry for the lack of focus this week: I’ve been a little off since Sund …

Oh wait, gotta go … Masterpiece is showing Downton.

Again.

Let’s Say Grace

Let’s Say Grace

Somewhere along the way, I stopped saying grace.

Maybe it was when I was first out of the house after leaving for college.

Perhaps it was because I was a ravenous student, trying to fit in a quick bite between classes … working hard toward that Freshman 15.

Or perhaps because I was finally out on my own, without someone telling me what to do.

Either way, it’s a tradition I let go of

and I want it back.

Now that I’m guiding The Boy in the way he should go, I’d like him to remember always that no matter what,

he is blessed.

And I think that taking a moment to say grace before dinner is a beautiful tradition.

Even if you’ve forgotten all day to take a moment and converse with God, to thank Him that you got up that morning,

that your coffee and shower were hot,

that your family is together: healthy and happy …live streaming movie online

Oh wait, I was talking about Matthew, wasn’t I?

Then to thank Him that Bobo The Dog is still lookin’ great after 903 washes; that in first grade, no one cares if that shade of blue goes with that shade of green; and that you finally got over that fear of riding a bike {and that your parents can actually afford to give you one}.

Even if you forget all that …

… when you sit down that evening to have dinner with your family, in that moment before you pick up fork or spoon and you’re about to dig in,

there’s Grace.

For us, it’s

Bless us, O Lord, and these Thy gifts, which we are about to receive, from Thy bounty, through Christ, Our Lord, Amen.

But any words of love and gratitude will do.

To make sure I don’t forget to take that moment, I designed the above printable to frame and hang by my kitchen table.

It is my gift to followers of this little light, so please feel free to download and enjoy.

Happy, beautiful, grateful weekend, friends.

With Love and Heartfelt Appreciation

There is only one thing more exhausting than hosting a 6-year-old’s birthday party at one of those crazy, filled-with-inflatable-slides-and-bouncy-houses kinds of places:

Encouraging your child to

pen the thank-you notes

for gifts received at those crazy, filled-with-inflatable-slides-and-bouncy-houses kinds of places.

His party was two weeks ago, and we’re on Note #4. [Read more…]
