Filler UP Friday

by lindsay cotter on April 6, 2012

Just a quick hello this GOOD FRIDAY. I hope everyone gets their FILL weekend.

FILL yourself so that you can overflow. I know, easier said than done at times. But to me, FILLING ourselves starts with being kind to ourselves, loving ourselves, and being thankful… yes… for OURselves.

Do I sound like a hallmark card yet?194569646370728732_DS2keskp_c

So go head, get your FILL.

Your FILL of

LOVE

JOY

PEACE

THANKSGIVING

and

so

so

MUCH

MORE!

Winking smile

*random* suddenly the word awful will never be the same to me– it sounds like it could be “awe-full” which in my head is now translating to “full of awe” after writing the above comment.

weird, haw? i don’t think i like the word awful as a word anymore.
no worries. i’ll be over it tomorrow.

We filled our home on Friday with wee one clothes/shoes/blankets/bibs, etc. since through prayer we know the gender of said wee one.

Angels blessed us with a free gift from an Earth Angel, and we are beyond grateful.

We also filled our home with the laughter and wackiness of a 13 year old young man all week who could not be more thrilled about his future sibling. :-)
