Welcome March!!!

I  GOT A BLOG MAKEOVER AND A I LOVE IT :) 

I am so excited that it is March.. and a perk of being a Teacher we have Spring Break in 2 weeks and we are heading down to 30A in Destin, FL and I am so excited because I love 30A so much. All the little communities are so cute and I hope Lily Jane will love it as much as her mommy.

This weekend was Rainy and cold :( but was able to hang out with my sweet friends and Lily Jane was having fun playing with all the kids. I love that my group of friends are starting to have kids and we are growing!!! Love it so much….. 









I read a daily devotion every morning and this morning it is just what i needed. I read Proverbs 31 and Love it 

The title of todays message was There's No Such Thing as a Perfect Mommy. I feel like we are always judging ourselves and never feel like we have done enough so I was so happy to read this and have a good daily remember we don't need to be perfect.. 
"Her children arise and call her blessed;" Proverbs 31:28a (NIV)

All of us have made mistakes or endured hardships in life, but we don’t have to let our past become a stumbling block for our future or impact the futures of our children. God has called us all to a divine purpose in this life, and sometimes the highest, most divine calling of all, is being a mom.
Not a perfect mom, but a mom who loves the Lord, and seeks grace when she stumbles and strength when she’s weary. A mom who pushes past her lack of confidence and regrets from the past, and allows God to use those experiences to shape her into a faith role model for her kids.
A mom who simply tries her best, while remembering she has a God who will guide her through each season of parenting, one imperfect day after another. A mom who loves her children enough to teach them to love Him too, even in the midst of her own short-comings.
And one day, those sweet babies just might rise up and call us blessed, simply because we built a legacy of faith and love. Then every prayer for grace, mercy, forgiveness, patience and perseverance will be well worth the wait.


HAPPY MONDAY!!!
