Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor... Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.
Mother Teresa

I love having this little outlet for my passions...

I love that Emily did such an incredible job of capturing "what matters most to me", as she created our new header. She exudes talent.

BUT...she and I agree, three pieces of my heart are missing in my header...our oldest children.

We knew going into our photo montage they were not in our beach scenes...but stay tuned, because we have some cool ideas coming:), and those three pieces of my heart will be there!

If you haven't had a chance to listen to some of my playlist...beware...it is as "all over the map" as this blog is. But...that is sort of the way our life is, so it all fits in a weird, complicated, expressively fun sort of way!

Those of you that know me know that I am pretty passionate...when I'm mad, I'm mad to the bonus margin...when happy...really happy, when I am advocating for something...you hear about it:))

I love my busylife with my dear hubby, nine very diverse kids, a horse, two dogs and a cat named Carl. Its my fit.

The music on my playlist reflects my passions..., my family, ordinary days, adoption, feeling joy in those ordinary days:), expectations, and above all, my love for my Master, Jesus....

I will change songs with the mood and the weather (Ha), and as you can already tell, you never know what will be my passion of the day when I sit down to write a new post. I'll keep you guessing...

Happy sunshine day...hope you are enjoying it too!

I love your new header! The beach pictures are great, but I did notice the missing older children. I'm looking forward to seeing what you will do to add these "pieces of your heart." I sure enjoyed our visit at dinner this week.

Wow! I just clicked back to your blog after posting the last comment and the black and white photos started popping up! That was really cool! Now I can see all of your kids!
