My mama has four girls, three daughters-in-law, lots and lots of grandkids, and a whole slew of friends across the world.

and my mama still finds time to email me;  I'm so thankful:

We are thinking about you today with company and school. Last night Papi and I watched the movie "The Way" about the father who walked the via de Santiago after his son died on the road . . . we liked the movie a lot and I'm still thinking about it today, thinking about worship, how we're created to be worshippers. . . thinking about how everybody has a story to tell and how sometimes we can know people but not really know their story, kind of like passing in the night with a polite hello.  Anyway, just a few thoughts for a Monday. Hope you're delighting in God's goodness today.


  1. Hello! I found your blog through Joanna's post, and though I'm a few days late, I just wanted to drop in and say that I found your account to be particularly lovely. Thank you for sharing your perspective on Cup of Jo, and on your own blog as well; I've been blessed looking through it!

    Your heart for the Lord is so apparent in your writing, and I pray that your work in Mexico will be blessed as you share love with those around you.

    Also, that paper art is beautiful.

    Anyway, have a great day, and thanks again for sharing!

  2. Taylor! a few days late totally counts (it took me a few days just to get through the Cup of Jo comments! :))
    thank you, saying hello and for your generous, kind comment.

  3. What a wise and generous mother and such a gorgeous little work right there. Thank you for sharing.
