I would like to encourage everyone to check out a blog I just discovered called http://mommysblessings.blogspot.com/. This is a blog run by a stay at home mom of six little ones and she blogs about her life.
Frankly I wish I had discovered this blog weeks ago Why? Because she has a special section called "The Friday Fling" and each week on Friday she gives a different assignments on ways to get your house together, clean and organized. I won't provide pictures, but take it from me - I need to start this program and the sooner, the better! If she can do it with six kids, I can do it with four.
Also check out Mommy Mondays, where she shares some tips on being a Mother. Everything from crockpot recipes to different strategies to keep your sanity.
Finally, she has great giveaways that have selfishly inspired me to blog about her blog :)
She is currently giving away this precious pendant from Etsy Shop The Midnight Orange.
The Midnight Orange has many precious sculptures, but the artist specializes in jewelry for loss mothers. I have been stalking this shop for quite sometime, but have never been comfortable spending the money. Owning the pendant would mean the world to me.
For those of you who may want to enter as well, here is the link:
There are several instructions, so be sure to follow them carefully.
In conclusion, a big thank you to Mrs. Cart at A Mommy's Blessing for even giving me the hope of owning such a wonderful piece and thank you to the Midnight Orange for doing such a masterful job of creating sculptures that so accurately capture the feeling of loss.
May there come a day when the Midnight Orange so longer has to sculpt loss sculptures.
