Transparency Series & Great Ideas!


Unfortunately, the flu bug has been spreading in our household and my computer time is minimal this week. However, His Girl, has an amazing "Transparency Series" that she has been doing that is worth checking out. She is a girl after my own heart and the comments left are as wonderful as her posts.

She has gone over personal transparency, transparency on our blogs, transparency at home and with our children (how much is too much), and transparency with our friendships.

I saw this wonderful "Do Something Daily" calendar over at MckMama's blog. It has creative ideas for things to do with your kids each day. I don't know about you, but I could use a little inspiration some days! A few of the ideas listed:
  • Put socks on your hands and dust around the house
  • Eat by candlelight
  • Go to a local school track to ride a bike, walk or run
  • Put a surprise in her shoes
  • Use a magnifying glass to find things outside
  • Organize photos
  • Make jewelry using things around the house
  • Play flashlight tag in the dark

I hope to be able to do some more writing of my own soon!! Please pray for our family as we work through this sickness! I just keep telling myself, "This too shall pass!" The above photo is where I'd love to be right now instead of cleaning up the yuckiness...on the beach in Aruba. I snapped this photo a few years ago on our vacation there.

Many Blessings!

I'm sorry everyone's been sick!

I love this post though. What good ideas. Even though I don't have kids, I sometimes forget that it's all about the "little things" in relationships, you know?
