Life is full of ups and downs, but I have to tell you…. I’m so happy I’m on this roller coaster called life with the people who are in my life. When thinking about what makes me sparkle, a few ideas come to mind.
What Makes Me Sparkle
My Guys – Dan and Jacob and Jaden are my life, plain and simple. Sure, we have our moments, as any family does. But what really makes me sparkle is time spent with them. Quality time. Nothing else compares. As a family, we’re together a LOT, and we’ve grown so close. I treasure these guys.
Friends and Family – Family can drive you batty, am I right? Family can also create amazing memories. Those memories make me sparkle. Memories of Christmases past with my grandparents, who were possibly more excited than us kids. Memories of trips with my parents in my dad’s 18-wheeler. Memories on the farm….
Of course, friends come into the picture too. Friends, both past and present, bring even more meaning to life. Lately, I’ve been meeting up with a couple of local writer friends, and when we get together to work, it just completely fills my cup. Jamie and Laurie are two amazing women, and I couldn’t be more grateful for their friendship.
Traveling with my Guys – Oh yeah, nothin’ like a roadtrip to bring out the sparkles. Exploring new places is just so exciting! Travel opens up a whole new world of possibilities and endless beauty.
Our Little Homestead – Living in our own home with a back yard garden, 10 adorable chickens, and a crazy cat named Harold…. yeah, that makes me sparkle. I’m so grateful for this life we’ve carved out here in Northwest Arkansas.
My Job – Writing, blogging, creating, taking photos, working on my first eBook…. I love what I do so much. Would not trade it for anything!
The Little Things – Trips to the library, books, good movies, nights at the drive in, homemade chocolate chip cookies, decorating our home, a good swim in the pool, an evening in the hammock…. it’s the little things that bring out the sparkle in my life.
