How $15 Changed Our Outlook On Life!

How $15 Changed Our Outlook On Life!

This past weekend we decided to take a break for a bit to enjoy some time with our babies. This was something that we not only WANTED to do, but something that we really NEEDED to do. Between Patrick’s almost monthly heart procedures over the past 7 months, and working  7 days a week just to keep up with orders, we were in desperate need of a BREAK. And we knew our babies needed some time to decompress just as badly as we did.

Since it is now Spring, and the weather has been absolutely GORGEOUS here in Louisiana, we decided it was high time for a WATER PLAY DAY! So, we picked up some bubbles, a slip n’ slide, snacks, and pulled out last years $0.99 pools from Target and created a fun little surprise our kiddos. While they were inside of our home playing, Patrick and I secretly slipped outside to set up a FUN FILLED day for our family, and realized a valuable lesson in the process.

How To Be The Wealthiest Person In The World

How To Be The Wealthiest Person In The World

ABSOLUTELY CORRECT! If you are abundant in all of these, then you are the WEALTHIEST person in the world!

We purchased a little decorative sign many, many years ago that says, ” I don’t care how poor a man is; if he has family, he is rich.”

rich

That sign hit home for us because we didn’t have 2 pennies to rub together at the time, yet we felt like we were ON TOP OF THE WORLD because Patrick and I had each other and 2 babies (at the time). We were just happy being together and it truly felt as if life couldn’t get any better.

All of these years later, we still have that little sign in our home. We actually just moved it today to a new shelf in our bathroom so we can see it more often and be reminded of this simple, yet important truth. Sometimes it is nice to hold onto those sentimental things from our past so we can see how far we have truly come.

Be BLESSED, sweet friends! <3

Sometimes girls just need to kick back with a UNICORN, RAINBOW, or HEART mug, filled to the top with coffee and SUGAR COOKIE creamer, and snack on GINGERBREAD cookies. *Continue reading
