Yes we had a small cold front come into Dallas over the weekend, but no, not cool enough to warrant this adorable knit dress. I didn’t want to wait until the temps actually cooled down enough because I knew she would be gone and she’s too good not to share, so here she is today!
Looking through the photographs this morning I found the incredible serendipitous moment of the butterflies behind me and the new life inside me. I stopped for a moment this morning to appreciate these news beginnings and the incredible transformation of the butterfly and the significance of new life. Each and everyday we get to wake up and choose new life. Each and everyday we get to begin again. How amazing is that! We get to choose differently and get to choose love. I’ve been hurt by others many times in my life and now instead of allowing myself to be hurt and get angry I’ve started praying for these people. It has completely changed everything. As hard as it has been to find the love when I wanted to be angry has truly changed me inside. Everyday is a struggle to always choose love and I’m by no means perfect, but everyday I get to wake up and try again. When you want to get upset at how someone has wronged you, if you can find it within yourself to offer them love, it will change your heart. If we harbor the anger and hurt feelings all we are doing is hurting ourselves. If we allow life situations to eat away at us it only makes us hard inside. If we can find a way to accept each situation as it is and do our best to keep love in our hearts it will truly change how we go through life. I promise you will wake up each morning happier with a feeling of peace instead of feelings of anger. Next time someone or something hurts you and you find yourself wanting to choose anger, see if you can choose love instead. See if you can pray for them or the situation and see if you don’t feel changed. It may not come immediately, but if you can continue coming from a place of love I promise you will be different in the most incredible way possible.

Hope you each had a wonderful weekend! I’m sad to report my computer screen decided to take a turn for the worse and is currently in the ‘Apple’ hospital so my posts this week may or may not happen depending on when she recovers from her surgery! Hopefully I will have her back soon and get back to all you beautiful people!
Have a wonderful day!
