For those of you who have joined us in prayer for the Clark family who tragically lost their son, Tate last month…today would have been his 5th birthday.  To honor him, Allison asked that everyone do 5 acts of kindness & post about it on her webpage, Pocketful of Tissues and Hope on Facebook.  I can’t even imagine how hard today has been but […]

A Mother’s Day Prayer

A Mother’s Day Prayer

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and while I have so much to be thankful for, my heart is incredibly heavy tonight.  Last Sunday morning, a family in our church woke up to the unimaginable…their precious 4 year old son, Tate was gone.  My heart is absolutely broken for my friends and I can’t seem to think about anything else.  I have […]

Sometimes when I have a tough decision to make, or I don’t understand why God is allowing something to happen, it’s hard to trust Him.  But then I look back & see that He’s always been faithful. I grew up with a single mom, who worked her tail off just to make ends meet.  That woman could seriously stretch a 20 […]

Kindness Advent – Days 24 & 25

Merry Christmas!  I hope you had a wonderful day celebrating the birth of our Savior and spending time with friends & family. Yesterday was a crazy busy, full day of serving at the church & celebrating our sweet Kaylor, so we decided to double up today & finish strong! This afternoon, I headed over to Starbucks before they closed to […]

Kindness Advent – Day 20

Kindness Advent – Day 20

Tonight, we headed over to North Park Rehab in McKinney to sings some Christmas carols.  I’ll be honest with you…I really did not want to go.  It’s a 40 minute drive on a good day but during 5:00 traffic, the Friday before Christmas…can you say nightmare?  Both boys fell asleep on the way, which meant late bedtimes at our house […]

Kindness Advent – Day 14

Kindness Advent – Day 14

Today’s mission was to buy someone a meal.  Since we were going to be at the church most of the day, we decided we’d buy the band dinner.  These guys & gals arrive by 1:00 on Saturday afternoons for rehearsal & don’t finish until 6:00 & then head back over on Sunday mornings from 8:30 ’til 1:00.  We have a […]

Kindness Advent – Day 12

Kindness Advent – Day 12

Last year, on the day we were planning to visit the fire station, we just could not get our baking act together.  So naturally, I told Aubrey to pull through Chick-fil-A.  He looked at me like I had lost my mind but knew better than to question a woman who was 9 months pregnant!;)  I personally think it was a […]

Kindness Advent – Day 11

We are huge fans of this organization & the awesome work they are doing all over the world.  Our family sponsors a 2 year old little girl named Kimberly from Honduras…we actually just got the sweetest Christmas footprint craft in the mail from her yesterday!:) Every year, World Vision creates a gift catalog with options to donate animals, school supplies, […]

Kindness Advent – Day 5

Kindness Advent – Day 5

  Let’s be honest…this is not what I wanted to do today!  The temperature dropped like 50 degrees over night (that has to be some kind of record) & by 3:00, the freezing rain was comin’ down!  I was already trying to figure out how we could switch things around & avoid getting back out in this weather.  We had […]

Kindness Advent – Day 4

Kindness Advent – Day 4

I like Wednesdays.  We usually stay at home all day & sometimes never get out of our pj’s…that’s a good day, if you ask me!  A perfect day to bake something for someone special. I was planning on making my oatmeal cranberry cookies b/c I know Mr. Rich really likes them but Grady insisted we make chocolate chip…so chocolate chip […]
