It's ok...


...to stand out.

*Gosh...I wish I would have been a stronger kid to have the kind of self confidence to go out on a limb, & be a little different instead of trying to conform to everyone around me...and pretty much failing at that. Now that I'm older, wiser, I love being my own person, a non-conformist if you will. There's no shame in just being you...YOU are perfect the way you are...and don't let anybody try and tell you otherwise!

*Linking up with Kim over at the cafe... Kim Klassen cafe -

*In other news...It's been a very emotional week. A lot of tears, short(er) tempered, & more than a little absent-minded. Justin leaves for Kuwait tomorrow & I want to take this oppotunity to say how MUCH I appreciate all your care, concern and kind words you leave for us. I can really feel the love oozing through to me and it warms my soul to think I have such wonderful support in this blogging world.  Thank you
Happy Snapping

  2. I will be adding Justin to my prayers and send his name along to a group back East who prays for all the service men and women. May God and his guardian angel be with him and you!

  10. Hang in there, Kelly. Six months will not be long. It is quite different having sons - they seem so helpless (and are) when they are babies and we put band aids on their skinned knees and feel real pain when their heart gets broken over a girl... but all sons become men. We have to hold them tight in our hearts, but let go at the same time. You are blessed to have such wonderful friends. We are all here to support you!
