Living, Laughing, Loving It

Adding more snapshots to the album of my life. Photos of me, splashin' in life.
I challenged myself to start, and I jumped cannonball style.

We headed to our local zoo one afternoon. Sticking out our tongues with the Komodo, climbing trees with the monkeys, holding hands with my love, roaring with the lions. Living, laughing, and loving it.

I'm still learning. Cultivating joy in my life and my family, a lesson worth learning. All of your ideas have brought a smile to my heart and creativity to my day. Would you consider joining me?

There is room for all of us, to encourage one another, to laugh with new friends, to spread joy for life in the land of blog. Leave a comment on how you are livin' life this week, playing with your family, going on a walk in nature, snuggling up to finish a good book, and of course leave me more ideas :) You can even join in, and post this week about it. If you decide to jump into this joy pool, make sure to include your link so that we can stop by and splash with you.

And don't forget to sign up for the Red Letter project (the book of Matthew in music) giveaway.

This is something I am trying to work on. I get caught up in the homeschooling aspect of things I forget to stop and play. I have been trying hard to make more of effort to more MOM not just HOMESCHOOL Teacher MOM.

Completely living and loving it with you! So glad to hear you had a great time at the zoo. It will soon be warm enough here for me to take all the children there too!

Rejoicing in God's many blessings as a family - 100% built by His loving hands.

Blessings and love sweet friend,

Lovebug and I are really enjoying this weather. We went outside and played kickball, threw the football to each other, then went for a nice walk. I love it.

I love this! I tend to get caught up in the day to day stuff and forget to just have fun with my family, thanks for the reminder:)

Love the picture of you and your boys and the zoo. So precious! Thanks for sharing!

We've been making a list of ways to Live, Laugh, and Love at our house. Next week is Spring Break for the kids and almost all of their friends are heading south, while we stay home in Michigan.

I'm thinking with a little advance planning and creativity, the kids and I can have even more fun than Florida! Thanks for your reminders (esp. in your 3/20 post) of finding the JOY in everyday life ~ and that's not always at the beach (although Florida would be nice.....)

Your posts always bless and inspire. Thanks for sharing your journey with us!

I'm enjoying your splashes. Keep 'em coming.
I have a friend who says Easter Egg Hunting with a flashlight is way fun. She and her hubby at dusk 'hid' the eggs in open places and when dark came, gave each grandchild a flashlight to find the eggs. She said it was a blast and the grands loved it.
Have not tried it myself but I might.
Holy Hugs, Kathie

Love all the wonderful ideas so many of your readers have already offered. Not sure where we might head this week as I am still recovering from surgery.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

My youngest daughter is done with school this week, so I'm looking forward to a lot of Me & Anna time. I love spending time with my girls individually. It makes each of us feel special!

I read this post and then clicked on the link “ideas” and ended up commenting on that post. ☺

I love your encouragement of enjoying the life we have been given; we have so many blessings the possibilities are endless. I need to take more advantage of this time I have been given with my children. Thanks for the little nudge in that direction. ☺
