I am an unapologetic fan of Jenny Colgan’s books. In some ways, it’s like taking a leave of absence to live in a different time, place, and close-knit community (much like Three Pines). Set in the Isle of Mure, I love getting sucked into the sense of belonging that comes with a Colgan book. It’s like going home. “Christmas On The Island” is another lovely story about love, family, loss, and new beginnings. I loved it. I knew I would. 4.5 Stars. #merrychristmas #jennycolgan #christmasontheisland #merrychristmas #isleofmure #love #family #truelove #belonging #ittakesavillage #sweet #book #books @jennycolganbooks @jennycolganwriter @harpercollins_publishing @williammorrowbooks

Hi everyone! I have so many new followers so I thought I would introduce myself again. I’m Sara and I am pursuing domestic infant adoption. I’m home study approved and court certified and all that’s left is to be connected with an expectant family looking to make an adoption plan for their child. That’s where you come in. Follow, like and share my IG content to help spread positive word of mouth about my adoption journey. Thanks so much to you all for the love and support!

Teacher Tip Tuesday 👩🏼‍🏫
....
My second year teaching I had an aide placed in my 4th period class. I had NO IDEA what that really meant. Was she another teacher? What she there to help me? Was she there to help some of the kids? All of the kids? Help pass out papers? Take notes for kids? I hadn’t a single clue.⁉️So, I set up a meeting with her before school started and basically asked her what her role was. And the answer was yes to all the previous questions. She was a godsend and the kiddos and I cherished her. When she retired, we threw her a party and I cried.😭
If you are lucky enough (like I am again this year) to have an aide in your room, the you’re pretty darn lucky. This lady right here helps keep my little world turning. 🌎🌍🌏 I respect her, I consider her my equal, and I support her. A kid was rude to her once and told her that she “wasn’t the teacher,” and oh you better believe that never happened again. If I don’t show her respect, then what message am I communicating to the students?
Your aides are only as helpful as you let them be. Include them in the directions and expectations. We is a lot more powerful than I. Give them agency. And give them a voice.🎙

// LIFE & DEATH IN MOTHERHOOD //

“I got this exquisite wound you see, because my mother was taken, snatched away from me. When I was at the tender age of 23, and pregnant with the one we now call Umi” ~ @laineyvictoria
.
Laine, THIS sits in my soul 💕. We crossed paths because of pain we both survived. But not at random. On purpose. Because there is so much work and healing to be done in this world 💕 I’m honoured to walk along side you in motherhood.
.
Please watch this clip ... it’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve heard. The full video is linked in my profile @drgilliansawyer
.
Thank you @laineyvictoria @twomamabirds_ for sharing your stories with me and for inviting me into your home. I will forever treasure the knowing that we are not alone in this journey 💕 #togetherinmotherhood

A Christmas poinsettia may not seem like much to many - but for me, it’s been one of my favorite personal #christmastraditions for the past several years. I purchase one every year in memory of my Grandpa Kelley. He passed away when I was in 8th grade, but I hold so many special memories of him and our time together in my heart. And now to keep it alive 😉.

Anyone else have a special tradition like this every Christmas season?

Just been thinking about the past 4 years in my life and how THANKFUL I am that this BOSS LADY convinced me to join her in an at home business ..... I thought she was crazy but one the reasons I have this picture of us in Central Park is because I went for it!!! She wrote this a couple days ago and I just have to share because I’m thinking about you!!! “I was thinking back to 4 years ago... Have you ever had one of those moments in your life where you just know everything was about to change ☀︎ That’s how I felt when I said YES to starting my home based business on a random Saturday night on June 21st 2014. As I clicked “JOIN NOW” I felt:
‣ desperate
‣ hopeful
‣ fearful
‣ excited
‣ optimistic

Because I took that leap, In the past 4 this business has given me:
➰ a monthly five figure paycheck
➰ a way to be debt free
➰ the ability to pay cash for my Lexus
➰ 2 little sponsorship boys from Africa
➰ our dream home
➰ a pool (paid for in cash)
➰ Christian School for our girls
➰ over $400,000 in bonuses
➰ over a million dollars in commissions
➰ freedom of time
➰ a new found confidence
➰ new passions
➰ the ability to dream again
➰ the opportunity to help people daily!” I’m still thinking about you .... This isn’t about me anymore, it’s about YOU. Trust the process, trust me, and trust the fact the you are seeing this post for a reason ♡

TEXT ‘OPPORTUNITY’ to 972.838.5538 to join us!!!

“We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become.” - Richard G. Scott
.
In an effort to attend the temple monthly, we organized a plan to rotate watching kiddos, making it easier for us to actually get to the temple. We encourage each other, make time for each other and walk with each other.
.
Sisterhood is so powerful. I believe so much in lifting each other. Whether you need your a sister to... get to the temple, to help you take action on your health goals, or a safe place to say “I’m struggling”, I’m here for you.
.
I’ll do my best to help you in anyway I can; validating that the struggle is real and giving you some life-changing tools to help you add strength to your life.

This weekend our not so little family went and stayed in a cabin with roughly 35-40 strangers. I was photographing a wedding for a friend, and we knew roughly 3 people before arriving to the cabin for the wedding.
.
Within a short time of our arrival, these strangers became friends. I blinked and suddenly these ‘strangers’ were pulling up a chair for Emerson at the game table and teaching him to play bananagrams. They not only tolerated the boys wanting to tell them all their stories, but they invited them to play games with them. They treated our kids as their own niece and nephews, grand children, and great grandchildren. They bundled them up and took them out to play in the snow, they scooped LuLu up as she made mad dashes for the stairs or just wanted to be held. .
These ‘strangers’ gave me hope for the world in the midst of the social cycle we seem to be stuck in where people choose to take offense and assume the worst of people instead of asking questions to gain understanding and knowledge.
.
This weekend was an encouragement and a blessing. Seeing the world come together for a celebration. No concern of mine, or yours. But ours. Knowing that the more we work together, the more beautiful the world will be.
.
May we all have more weekends like this was. Maybe just more sleep. That would be great! 😜
