Project 31. Day #3: Beauty Inspired

Day #3: Who is someone you know who inspires beauty?

Can I have two?
These two people greatly inspire beauty in my life:


growing up in my parents house was like most homes.
We had our ups. We had our downs.
But one thing was a constant.
God was the center.

Not many people can honestly say that they saw their parents seek God's advice in everything that they did. And they still do.
I learned a lot from my parents.
The most important thing in the world is family.
Family things stay in the family.
God has a plan for our lives.
Never go to bed mad.

I also learned that I was beautiful in my parent's eyes no matter what.
There was never pressure to be a certain size or look a certain way in our house.
We didn't always make the best choices nutritionally but I was never afraid of coming home if I gained a pound or thirty :S
That doesn't mean that my parents didn't want us to be healthy growing up, it just wasn't an obsession.
I'm grateful for that.

I learned that a sense of humor is a necessity in life. There were times growing up, and especially now in my adult life, laughing was the only thing that kept us from losing our mind.


I am thankful that my parents became "parents" to all of my friends.

I am thankful that my parents follow God and everything He asks them to do. Even if it meant stepping out of their comfort zones. I only hope I will follow God with such commitment.

I also learned never to accept hand-outs but to work for everything you want. To tithe on a regular basis, and to expect God's blessings. EXPECT THEM!

They love their kids, they love their grandkids, and even their grand-dogs with an unconditional love.


I could go on and on and on about my parents. I love them so much and I think that it's because of them that this little gal even stands a chance.
If beauty had a picture beside it in the dictionary, it would have a picture of them.
I have been blessed.
Mom. Dad. I love you!



  1. Wow, what a legacy they have left to you! They sound so amazing and make me want to live a life like that to be able to pass down to my kids. My parents were first generation Christians and my dad didn't come to know the Lord till I was in elementary school so I know our lives were blessed by God for their choices and they did an awesome job but I know me being a 2nd generation I want to be even more intentional! Beautiful:)

  2. That is so awesome! They seem like they are so much fun!
