Picking up my daughter from "Kid's Club" today and her backpack was very heavy. I asked why? She replied, I have a bunch of rocks in there. Me: Please don't pack a bunch of rocks in your backpack. Koah: We made them today. We get home and I've never seen more beautiful rocks. ❤️❤️❤️ #love #daughter #joy #rocks #keeping #treasures #momlife #create

A Letter to my daughter: It's seems like just yesterday, I was preparing for the 1st of March when you would make your grand entrance. We go together like "peanuts and paydays", we have a bond that cannot be altered. What you have taught me, that I consider the grandest lesson of them all: LOVE. The grandest kind. If reflect upon the people who have influenced my life the most I would declare, without a moment's hesitation, that you are at the very top of my list. You have profoundly affected who I am today. Being a mother grounded me, gave me a purpose and set my life's course. Darling, you will Dance.
Tomorrow is your 8th Birthday and while I am eager to celebrate...I would also love a "Pause" button because you are growing up way too fast. Always keep that sense of wonder and smile on your face. In time, you will understand how much it helps you through this journey called "Life". Mommy will always Love you to the "Moon and Back". To be continued for many years... #daughter #birthday #girl #dontgrowup #baby #love #fabulous #child #momlife #bond #eightisgreat #heart #joy #beauty #hairgoals #birth #day

My "natural" comedian of a daughter sure has a habit of losing teeth right before a holiday and/or special day. She's trying to make the "tooth fairy" pay out big!

And my daughter's School Valentine's Cards are complete. I think there may have been a "bad apple" according to her funny expressions. 😆 #school #valentines #cards #treats #candid #child #daughter #love #momlife #moments #laughter #funnygirl #teacher #class #heartday #fun

Love my daughter's imagination as she created a "Custom Laptop" for her American Girl doll to enjoy while she's at the beauty salon. She even got dressed up to go to work at the "salon de koah" as she calls it. Saturday fun. #create #salon #americangirl #love #kidlife #style #play #time #americangirldoll #daughter #momlife #children #girls #kidsofinstagram #creativity #salongirls #relaxedhair #saturdayfun

"You Have Nothing to Lose" and everything to gain when you go the "extra mile" and bless someone. Whether it be through random acts of kindness, a smile, a handwritten letter (doesn't happen to often these days), a simple conversation over tea or coffee, a giveaway, a hand in times of need, a hug, a care package filled with love, an encouraging comment and so much more.

Today, I am extremely blessed by the acts of strangers whom collect an artist's pottery that I just started collecting. I won a fabulous loop contest on IG. These women are artists as well. They have perfected the art of "giving". I needed "strength" this month (more than they know) and my mugs and other items will be proudly used/displayed and will serve as a reminder that in a world filled with dissaray there are those that are still filled with love.
Remember: " You have nothing to lose". Be an encourager and uplifter to others. Blessings will abound.
