I'm a redeemed child of God and the momma to four vivacious daughters. I'm passionate about finding hidden blessings in the trials of life, living it out in an honest and open way, while encouraging those around me to believe in better.


a new way to make friends

The girls have recently learned some new card and magic tricks … they’re obsessed … and share with anyone who comes near!  So when they got tired of the same ol’ audience {me, Taylor and Hunter} … they decided to set up a stand at the end of the driveway.  And the best part? they were going to donate their profits to Africa to help build an orphanage!  Love my girls!

Anyway … they didn’t make a profit … but they did make friends!  We had no idea, but 2 girls live just 2 doors down from us!  They saw Piper and Wynter sitting out, so decided to come over {personally, I think they thought they’d be getting some lemonade out of the visit!}.

In the photo below, Piper and Wynter are looking at the neighbor girls walking over … it was sort of mirage and surreal-like.  They’ve been wanting to find other kids to play with, so these 2 girls seemed to drop straight from Heaven! :)

They shared a few magic tricks and then spent the afternoon at the girls house … while I felt the bliss of a grocery store visit – sans kids!
