Tiny Blessings



Thank you Lord for the tiniest blessings.


Trivial to some. Crazy fun dream to me!

A couple of months ago, I was on a trip with some girlfriends.....and as we came down the escalator of the airport...I said outloud “I have *always* wanted someone to be waiting for me at the airport with a sign with my name on it”.

I have always thought that would be cool. Kind-of like I am “somebody”. Really important.

Well, that happened to me this weekend! Check out this guy! Waiting for me! Yes, little ole me.



So, the funny thing is...I was in the towncar (the one he picked me up in!)...and I thought to myself how cool this whole things is...and then it’s like the Lord spoke right to me. I AM somebody. Someone really important. I am His Child. He made me.

I am a mother...a wife...a friend...a sister...I have so many roles. I am not the best or perfect at any of them, but I try. But, regardless of my imperfections, I am really special. We all are.

It’s so funny how it took that moment...almost like a little dream come true...for me to have a self-worth check. And, it does NOT take a guy holding a sign to validate my worth (but...it sure was nice :) )

So, on this trip, in my room, running through Beverly Hills....I had kind of a revelation...a time where I realized that my everyday reality is fun....because we make it that way. My kids love life. We don’t live mundane. Always on an adventure. Making the most of the little blessings we have been given.

And, I totally like it that way! So, my challenge to you, blog reader....go have yourself an adventure.....and remember that you are REALLY important....and if you don’t think you are...call me....I’ll come pick you up and I’ll have a sign with your name on it :)
