Hey guys! As promised on Monday, there will be a fun DIY post today featuring two wallet friendly & creative DIY's. But before I post those projects I wanted to ask you all a personal favor.
I rarely try and touch on religious beliefs on this blog because I believe everyone has the right to feel however they so choose. But today I'm asking for prayers to uplift a family who desperately needs powerful healing and courage right now. I have a friend from childhood who I am fortunate enough to be able to keep up with through Facebook. I found out yesterday that after giving birth to her first baby her husband took his own life and will not be making this parental journey with her. I hesitated to post about this because it is so raw and personal to her and her sweet family. However, it just rocked me to my core yesterday and it's all I have been able to think about since I found out. It has put everything into perspective for me... The dishes that I thought I needed to get done immediately instead of taking a few extra minutes to enjoy my family time or the plans I had to make months in advance, meanwhile ignoring the beauty of being in the present moment. It all just seems a little less dire...a little less important.
I believe in trying to learn something beautiful midst the darkness of something tragic. My prayers are with my childhood friend. The new blessing of a baby who is now without her father and finding a healing light through all of this confusion and mix of emotions it has created in my mind.
Love to all of you guys today. Thank you in advance for your prayers & make sure and come back to be able to have something a bit more happy to brighten your day.
