Getting Organized

I have been spending time on Pinterest pinning different organizers and printables to my pin boards. The first week I did really well. What was I thinking trying to get all planned out and organized right in the middle of the holidays? I should have been shooting for something a bit more attainable like brushing my teeth at least four times in one week or maybe eating one meal this week while sitting down. Luckily the holidays are coming to an end and I can get things back on track. Well, except for the fact that I am sick and so are all four of my kiddos. You know what I am going to try anyway! Right now I am finding this planner really helpful. It is found at Finding Home. I love the way it is layed out and so far works really well for me. I really like the font she used. I do not know why that would be important but for some reason it is to me. In the meantime here is a real glimpse into my life :
This is from my son's birthday last year. I am not organized enough to have more recent photos. That is not stopping me from moving forward and trying to be more organized!!!

Room for One More?

At one point, it was taught that we should always have room at our tables for one more. I know that during the depression era there were lots of misplaced folks that benefited from the kindness of those who had extra to share. Is this something that is taught anymore? Do we instill in our children that there is plenty and we should share with those in need? I know I have fallen short on this many times in my adult life. I see that there is always room for one more in our life of plenty. In fact, there is room for several more to sit around our table and break bread with us. I would love an opportunity to welcome Sophia to my table. She is a sweet 5 year old that has no family. What a joy it would be to know that she had a permanent place where she is part of a family. Are you that family? Is there room for one more at your table?

Isn't she a sweetheart! If you would like to help Miss Sophia please visit Reece's Rainbow. She is one of the children that is on the Angel Tree. Please share and donate so that we can meet here $1,000 goal!!!
