I will be the first to say how unbalanced my blog has been lately.  I look at my commitment to Roomspiration Blog Hop & Link Party as a valuable way to motivate me to beautify my home {besides working with some talented bloggers & making new friends.}  I’m grateful for the progress I’ve made, but didn’t realize how much time it would dominate.  The work alone is tiring.  Then I want the post to reflect the work I have put into the room.  Anyway, I want you to know I have not forgotten the real reason I blog…to celebrate our families. 🙂  I ran across the gem below on Pinterest and wanted to add the latest video from the wonderful Nielson Family.  If you haven’t heard the good news, they are expecting a new “lil peanut.”  Congratulations to the Nielson Family!


Please come back anytime to brag about your family, 😉

Perfect Example

Before I pack up the Box Tops I have counted over the last week, I wanted to share a video of a family having joy.  This brought tears of pure joy.  It is worth your time to watch, I promise.  I have written about Stephanie Nielson before on Family Brings Joy and also on my other blog Faith Brings Joy.

Yesterday was especially challenging for me.
If I want to put things into perspective,
I visit Stephanie on her blog.
This morning I needed her strength and inspiration.
She & her family gave me more.

You can read my other posts about her  here, here and at her blog here.

Thank you Stephanie,
