Mug-spiration Monday + a Quick Announcement

Monday, June 6, 2016

Happy Monday, friends! May your coffee be strong, your creamer be decadent, and your Monday be easy! I'm pretty sure that should be some sort of blessing from now on ;)

This past week, I was struggling some with a bad attitude. I found myself sulking for a while, but just like I confessed on Instagram, I knew that I was really the only one who could control my attitude.

I can't control what happens to me each day, or what happens to my loved ones, or my plans. But I can control my attitude. I can choose to be thankful instead of giving into the negativity that will inevitably rise up from time to time.

And you can too. You can beat it. You can choose joy, and thankfulness, and peace. If we trust God things get much simpler. We don't have to have everything figured out- we can simply rest in the fact that God is our Father and He is working all things for our good (Romans 8:28).

So spend today and everyday determined to shun the grumpies and embrace a joyful, thankful heart and life!

A Short Absence

If you notice my presence being sparse in the blog world this week, it's because my husband and I are going to visit his family. We were planning to go to the beach with them, but his grandmother fell and broke her hip a few days ago, so we are going to go to their house instead and visit his grandmother in the hospital.

I may not be gone all week- not sure- but just wanted to give you wonderful people a head's up! :)

  6. Enjoy your time and thanks for the attitude reminder! I'm right there. Trying to refocus and reset. I'm on a week away from home right now sitting near Green Bay in Wisconsin while my husband and son golf.
