Life can get so hectic and busy that I can forget to enjoy this life that God has given me.
I seem to struggle with OCD on some levels; especially when it comes to my house being clean and tidy. I can become obsessed with trying to make everything look “perfect” yet there is no perfection in this life.
My husband has to remind me often, ” We have to live here Angie.”
I forget that this home and my precious family are the ministries that God has given me to take care of today. I am to walk with a sense of loving those HE has blessed me with in this life, all the while remembering that life is fleeting and I am not promised tomorrow with any of the ones I love.
I need to be reminded that life is about NOW; not tomorrow. I struggle with taking time to remember the precious gifts I have been given in this life such as:
My husband of 30 years, Mike
My children and grandchildren
My dogs; especially my Penny and Roscoe (my buddies)
The books I have to read for enjoyment or to obtain knowledge about a particular subject.
The crafts I have the freedom and supplies to make
The friendships I am lucky enough to have: C. F and R. C and B. H and J.H. and P. B and B. S. and many others that I have made through Facebook and my website.

I am thankful that God allows us to see the beauty in the small things, all the while allowing the huge parts of life to change me and to make me a better person, wife, mother and Christian.
Life impact us both in the small as well as the big.
Whether it is a small flower, a child smiling or a hug from someone who loves you;
God’s Beauty Surrounds Me
Thankful for my family and God’s blessings; big and small
