Mug-spiration Monday *Vol. 13*

Monday, September 14, 2015

Was anyone else just absolutely thrilled by the weather yesterday? I know I was!
I pictured myself frolicking in a meadow, but one must be able to run to do that, so I settled for rolling the car window down ;)

The weekend was filled with a lazy, Bones-binging Saturday morning. Then my mom, dad, and brother came for a late afternoon visit. My brother spent the night with Taylor and I, and the next morning we got up and went to church.

Church searching is getting a little old. No church is perfect, but our tiny little church in Waynesville was truly the best church I've ever been a part of. And as we try new churches, I am seeing more and more how blessed we were.

After church, we headed over to the farm to hang out with my parents and brother and eat Sunday lunch. We hung out with the chicken, ducks, and goats, and I swang (swinged? swung? are those words?) on the farm swing, which was so fun!

Now we are back to the work week. Even though I am tired and dragging this morning, I am thankful that I really do like my job. I am thankful that I don't have to do the whole "office job" thing in order to provide for Taylor and I. I am also thankful that during the baby's naps, I am allowed to work on this blog. That is a huge blessing!

But regardless if you are a nanny too, or if you work in an office, at a school, at McDonalds, or even if you are the CEO of a major company, you can choose your attitude for the day. You can choose to be grumpy because it's Monday and you don't want to go to work, or you can choose to be thankful you are living another day, and thankful that you have the opportunity to do great things and be a good influence today. The choice is yours, but my recommendation is to skip the grumpy ;)

Mug-spiration Monday Inspiration

Spiritual Inspiration- God is with his children always.

Creative Inspiration- Make some art.

Work Inspiration- Dream dreams for yourself, and have a purpose.

There is enough negativity in this world to last a lifetime. How about we decide to be the light in the darkness, and the perky amidst the grump-monsters?

Have a wonderful day, friends!


  1. Thank you for the inspiration! I usually wake up on Mondays feeling inspired and refreshed but today I'm dragging. I love the bit about having reminds me why I get up early :) Happy Monday!

  2. I'm so in love with this weather too! I'm going a little over board with all the knitting, haha. We've been visiting a church for two Sundays now and we think we like it enough to keep going. You'll get there. Took us almost 3 years! Hope you find yours faster :)

  3. I was shocked that the weather was a little cooler here in TX. It was very nice! Your weekend sounded very peaceful and a lot of fun!

  4. Love it! Church searching is so hard. You want to find a place you love that challenges and inspires you that also feels like a good fit people-wise and that can be so hard! Hope you have a great rest of your week!

  5. Thanks for these great quotes and the reminder that blogging is a blessing not a chore =)
