Letters To Our Daughters - May

It's such an honor to participate each month with a wonderful group of ladies as we share a letter to our daughters.  Make sure to take time the time to visit through our circle by clicking through the link at the end of this post.

Dear Little Bear,

Spring is my favorite time of year, as the earth bursts forth with new life, warm temperatures and sunny days.  Childhood is so much like spring, full of life and promise, as you live life to it's fullest, exploring and questioning.  Just as I want to savor every moment of spring, I also want to treasure every moment of your childhood, for it passes much too quickly.  I love that you still snuggle with me every chance you get.  I don't love that you no longer like to wear dresses.  I love that you are carefree.  I love that we can explore together and learn together.  I love to watch you play with your sisters, following after your big sister and leading your little sister.  The three of you have something very special, a lifetime relationship that is guaranteed to grow and blossom through the years.

Now click over and visit Catherine and read her letter to her daughters.

Project Ten - Life

For the last few months I've been a part of a wonderful group of ladies that encourage and support one another in our photography journeys.  We've decided to join together and do a monthly blog circle where we share photos on a theme.  This month's theme is LIFE and we'd love for you to follow the links through and see how each of us express the monthly them.  You'll find a link at the end of my post for my dear friend Ivy.

Without further ado, here is my view of life:

 My days are filled with messy, spontaneous, noise, sometimes barely hanging on, weeds, and pb&j, but I think to myself what a wonderful life I'm blessed to live, filled to the brim with goodness and love.

Now go and visit Ivy and see what her life is all about.

Love Multiplies

This week I spent about $30 on supplies and several hours of my day and baked cupcakes.  These weren't just any cupcakes, but cupcakes filled with love and purpose.   Our special cupcakes were part of  a  Cupcake Kids sale.  You can visit the link to get more details, but in short the Cupcake Kids hold sales each year to raise awareness and funds for the children that Sixty Feet advocate for.

From the baking, to the decorating and packaging, my kids joined in the fun and mess as we created yummy masterpieces and talked about the precious children these would help.

Keep scrolling to see what our effort help and how you can get involved...

 Help bring justice to the children unjustly imprisoned, along with education and opportunities for their future.

 Help support a local village school.

 Help provide abandoned children with a foster home and parent.

 Help fill these bowls and tummies with a nourishing meal.

 Help these feet to run with hope, joy, health and freedom.

Help to set these precious ones free from a life of hopelessness to a life of hope.

One cupcake at a time we can make a difference!  Remember that $30 investment I made earlier this week.  God multiplied it to $800!!!

Now you can get involved and be part of the solution by visiting my friend Stephanie and reading a bit more about our recent trip and joining her in the $5.00 cupcake challenge.
