My three greatest loves are my funny Valentines, and they make me smile every day. All day. But, Mama Kat has challenged me to come up with just ONE thing that made me smile this week.

5. Something that made you smile this week.

My three great loves are my husband, Chris, my 5 year old daughter, Lizzy-Jane, and my 2 year old daughter, Claire.

I’ve decided to tell you about one thing each of them has done this week to make me smile. So maybe I’m cheating a little bit. Oh well! *smile*

CHRIS

He’s the love of my life. The man of my dreams!

I’ve been on a diet for a few weeks, and I’ve lost 14 pounds. Which I’m thrilled about! And the best part is Chris keeps calling me skinny! I’m like Eyore, it’s great to be noticed!

LIZZY-JANE

She made me smile extra big this week when she came outside to play in this outfit. As you can see there is still some snow in the background. But it really was that warm, y’all!

CLAIRE

She made me smile on Valentine’s day when she was playing in the snow. I just love her, her style and that Black Eyed Susan bush! I can’t wait for it to bloom!

So, what made you smile this week?

I’m baaack! Thank you, Peggy, for all that you do to love and motivate me!!

So, I decided to use some of Mama Kat’s inspirations to get me back on the band wagon of blogging. Don’t you fear, I have been reading and following several of my favorite blogs the whole time I have been gone from this little spot.

Sometimes I missed “I See You looking At Me,” and sometimes I didn’t. Suffice it to say, it IS definitely TIME to come back. I need another outlet y’all!

So, I chose prompt number 2.

2. A blog post inspired by the word: love.

Isn’t it appropriate? Friday is Valentine’s Day after all!

I think love is an action verb.

It is something we choose to do. I choose to love my husband and serve him, while showing him respect. I choose to feed, clothe, diaper and tickle my children. Well, they are so super cute that they make the tickling, hugging and kissing part easy.

This verse helps me to understand love:

I John 4: 18 (ESV)

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

Through Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, I have come to know perfect love. This does not mean I am perfect. Because, I am not. It means God loves me perfectly, and in return I give him everything I have. I ask him to perfect me. To work on me, and make me a better Mother, Wife, Daughter and friend!

How am I doing? You can play teacher and grade me. Do you feel loved today?
