It’s the Little Things…

It’s the Little Things…

Maybe it’s something in the water, but Small Fox has had a case of the grumps lately. Mr. Fox and I joke that he is a Terrorist and you are scared to be around him. His constant screaming, crying, and whining has pushed every single button I knew I had and he is only 15 months…can’t imagine when Small Fox is Two. Please pray for us all!!!

As I sit here in the quiet house and look at the monitor as he sleeps, I miss him! Despite his screaming, whining, and craziness I miss him. I want to just crawl into his crib and snuggle him all up! It’s all those little things…

His sheer joy while watching me play fetch with our dog Oliver
When he quietly whispers Daddy when I am telling him to say Mama
His love of the shower
His “monster” face
His babbling as if telling me about his day
When he sits down to “read” his favorite book
His open mouthed kisses
His full contact hugs
The way he shoves his blankie between his pacifier and his face just before he sleeps
His giggle and belly laugh
His facination with putting the dog’s food into the dog’s water bowl
The way he loves me…with all is heart

I couldn’t imagine my life without the little booger and I need to remind myself of all these things when the going gets tough!

Love you Small Fox


It’s Just a {Little} Gossip…a review

Yowzers, is all I have to say!!!!  I recently got the opportunity to review a book that a friend of mine wrote.  I don’t even know where to start.  I received the book this morning and I couldn’t put it down.  Luckily Small Fox was napping because my eyes were literally glued to the page.

“It’s Just a Little Gossip…Letters of a Broken Friendship” hit me straight in the gut almost knocking the wind right out of me.  It is the honest, naked truth of how “just a little gossip” can ruin a friendship, but how all can be healed through Christ Jesus if we lay down our own agendas and follow His.  How simple that sounds….right?

We all gossip in some form or another.  Whether it’s harmless gossip {is gossip ever harmless?} among girlfriends or the gossip that surrounds us in the media.  It is something that is a part of our everyday lives, but what is the big deal as long as no one gets hurt?  There is no harm in “just a little gossip” if you don’t get caught, right?

Getting caught is just what this book is about.  What happens when your friend catches you gossiping about her?  What happens when “just a little gossip” lasts for years {years and years}.   What happens when you hear that still, small voice of God whispering to lay it all down, forgive and move on?  Do you listen, do you follow Him, or do you ignore His voice because the pain is just TOO much?

Follow Sarah and Rebecca’s tale from heartache to healing.  See how “in all things God works for the good of those who love Him…” {Romans 8:28}.  Evaluate yourself with their study questions.  Pray for conviction, healing, strength, and guidance throughout this book with the helpful and heartfelt prayers at the end of each chapter.  Challenge yourself each week by participating in the challenges that Sarah and Rebecca have provided to help you draw closer to God and deeper into meaningful, lifelong friendships.

I can’t wait to share the tales of trials and triumphs that I encounter as I dive deeper into this book and search my heart for what God has for me.  Please visit <a href=”“>She Shares Ministry</a> for more information on the book, where to purchase, the authors, and TONS more stuff.  Also “like” She Shares Ministries on Facebook for uplifting words and much, much more!
