Blissful Encouragement

(this is one of my FAVORITE photos *of thousands lol* that I captured this year)


The encouragement we each give to one another is far more important than all the ribbons, parties, and flowers. It is what fuels our souls to create more, live richer, and think deeper. I so appreciate the sincere words of my friends who have shared my excitement in my little life and pushed me forward. To those of you who have showed your love, thank you. You have taught me to rejoice in others' happiness in all situations because it makes people just FEEL GOOD!

I was hopeful...but now I'm shocked, amazed, surprised, excited, giddy, humbled, honored, blown away, overwhelmed, but basically just blissfully happy over the attention that some of my projects received this summer. Thank you to everyone that made me feel like a million dollars.

I want a way to recognize the lovely places who showed my work. The following sites are AMAZING, full of motivational ideas and beauty. I admire each one and am absolutely HAPPY that I discovered your websites.

A really super big THANK YOU to you all!!

ALSO...I realize I haven't included every site and I SO apologize! Will you {pretty} please let me know if your website isn't on here so I can quickly add it? I can be disorganized BUT every single feature made me SMILE and truly blesses me.
Your encouragement is priceless.

Next time your friend is excited, join in. Hug them, be giddy together, let them know you're their biggest cheerleader. And you'll leave them with a forever smile.
This is the biggest lesson I've learned in blogging.

Rock on, mama! You deserve -- and worked hard -- for these rewards.

Nancy said...

I'm glad that your amazing talents have been so recognized! I hope it just keeps growing. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see you on Martha Stewart or the front of some decorating magazine someday : )

Andrea said...

I think you deserve all of this! You have such talent!! I have your blog on my front page so I can follow when you put new posts! Congratulations! AND thank you to introducing me to some new sites! I am the girl from three pixie lane that had the same green napkins with polka dots! :)

The Quintessential Magpie said...

I am really proud of you, sweetie pie, and I think you deserve all of those honors! You are so talented and so sweet to share those talents with others. I know your family is proud of you, too, and rightfully so! :-)

Am still on a blog break, but I do try hard to answer comments. Mr. Magpie has not been well, and he is slated for kidney surgery on the 7th. So please remember to keep him in your prayers. It's been a stressful few weeks, but the Lord has seen us through it all. So I am a happy girl!

Sending you warm hugs across the miles...
