Sunday Sanity: Flowers Make It All Better!

What sparkled in your world this week?

Sometimes it's the little things that mean the most actually. We all know that. As long as someone loves you, you can take whatever life has to throw at you. I have that someone in my life and I am thankful. This week, as I looked around, I knew that I had a lot to be thankful for. I have my beautiful babies of course and for that, I will always be grateful. But when I get frustrated, I often throw my head back with my hands over my eyes and I groan thinking how horrible it all is, and how overwhelming. But the minute I pull my hands away, I look up and I see the beauty that surrounds me and I'm at peace again. 
This week, as I looked up from my desk, I saw these beautiful carnations. They reminded me of Spring and of the beauty of nature. 
And when I looked in to my kitchen, I saw these breathtaking roses. This is the beauty that is my life. And I am thankful. Thankful that I have beauty surrounding me in the form of flowers because my husband appreciates me and shows it (this wasn't always the case, but it is now and I appreciate that...the past is the past). And beauty because the people that surround me are beauty in themselves. 

I'm a lucky woman. I might get frustrated but I have a wonderful husband, 3 beautiful daughters, and an incredible son. Life doesn't get any better than this!

Sparkle on and don't forget to stop and smell the roses, or carnations, or whatever other flowers you might run in to this week. Life is a thing of beauty, stop letting the moments pass you by and just enjoy the scenery!


  1. I love your sparkles. It really IS the small things that ate so hugely important. Have a great week!!

  2. What a great reminder to stop and smell the...well, you know! Really, sometimes it just takes looking around us and seeing what blessings we are surrounded by to encourage us. Thanks for reminding me to do that.

  3. You are a blessing Brandi! Your encouragement and positive attitude inspire me on a daily basis and you just make me smile! Thanks for just being YOU! Rock on and smell the roses. You deserve all the beauty that life has to offer.

  4. I love that you are so positive! It's easy to lose sight of the important things in life and get caught up on the small stuff. You are one lucky lady and it's awesome that you realize it!

  5. I think B needs to have a talk with Michael because I never get flowers! Maybe I would get more flowers if I cleaned the house... hmmm... :)

  6. Seriously have to clean the least every once in awhile. You crack me up!

  7. I am lucky! Thanks Jillian! I do realize it and we're all lucky in our own ways as long as we open our eyes to it. :)
