Surprised by Life - Finding the Beauty

My beautiful and amazing friend Brooke McGlothlin just started a brand new blog today called "Surprised by Life".  You must head over to get to know her, for she is an amazing woman with a beautiful heart.  I just love her.  She is one of my "IRL once a year" friends that I get to see and hug at the Allume conference every year in October.

Today as she opens her blog, she has challenged us to see the beauty in our lives.  So I thought I would share a few photos of the beauty that surrounds my life.

An unexpected opportunity to share in new, fuzzy, cuddly life.

So proud of my daughter for braving a cold, rainy day of flag football to raise money for an injured student.

After16 years with this man, I still marvel at the way he loves me, cares for me, and tolerates me!

My mom heart is never full until ALL of my girls are at home. There is nothing like the whole family under one roof. I'm worried about how I'll feel when they are all on their own!

These three gifts from above fill my heart with joy!!!!

A quick glance in a flower shop window, and my heart stopped when I saw this rose.  It  provides hours of photography fun at home.

The garden beginning to burst open with color, texture, smells, and beauty.  I feel fully alive when I am tending to the garden.

Reminders of God's awesome provision, not just for me and my family, but for the earth and His creation as well.

Beauty surrounds us every day, and I am so happy to have had this opportunity today to stop and count the gifts around me.

Linking up with Brooke today.
