I gave myself a FabFitFun annual subscription last year for my birthday and I’ve loved getting a new box filled with beauty, fashion, wellness and fitness pics delivered each quarter. While I’ve absolutely loved each box I’ve received, the Spring 2018 edition has been my favorite box so far.
Have you ever looked at a huge, messy situation in front of you and thought, “I just can’t”? Perhaps the thought of walking through whatever that thing is — financial strain, relationship issues, a health crisis — is simply too much to bear.
There must be another way, a way around this hot mess of a situation, you think. You close your eyes for just a moment and offer up this simple prayer, “Please, let there be another way. Please move this struggle from my path.”
But then you open your eyes and finances are still uncertain, the relationship is still tricky and the health crisis hasn’t budged.
So then what?
There are two choices – the path around or the path through.
This site is supposed to be a safe place where we can bear our hearts to each other, lift each other up, comfort and encourage one another. And as the Chief Cheerleader, it’s my job to create that space. It’s my job to start the healing with confessions of my own, with honesty, vulnerability and brokenness. It’s my job to talk about hard things and share how I find joy and hope in any situation.
And I’ve been silent.
I’ve been silent because I simply didn’t have the words. The news of the world had just become too much. I was left stunned and broken and completely mute.
Until last night.
Hi, friends! We are just back from our annual trip to the beach and boy, has it put me in the summer frame of mind! This week’s edition includes a delicious summer treat, summer parenting hacks, a new scripture coloring book for the whole family, a great way to connect with your kiddos each day and a fun family activity. I hope you enjoy these posts as much as I did!
Happy Sunday, friends! This has been a wonderfully wacky week with Wild Man finishing kindergarten, day camp orientation and more activities in the last three days of school than I could have imagined. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for some relaxation and a vacation. I bet you are too. This week’s Sunday Share covers things every woman needs in her life, summer books for grown-ups, parenting and a sweet song. I hope it brings you as much joy as each post brought me.
