A Monday Minute ~ Take Three !

Today Khloe A.K.A.  Sweet Beans turned 3 !

This Namaw cannot believe it....

She had me from the start.....

Nanny falling in love ..... Khoe has so much of my Mom in her :-)

Yesterday we spent the day at the beach celebrating her little life.
Lunch, sun and some good polka dot cake :-) 

She is my little buddy and she adds so much to my life.
 Wouldn't it be great if everyone added to each other's lives?
To be an addition to the lives of others, 
to give and not take away.
To lift up and not tear down.
Too often I think we don't give because "they" don't.
We don't lift up because "they" don't.
Better to do what's right regardless..

 It's why I rely on God for my needs
regardless of what others contribute
or take away...
He can provide what I need when others don't.
He is my constant.
  When we take our focus off self  
we can then see 
we are rich in those we have around us, 
and perhaps even begin to see that  we could give more and take less.
Sometimes we are so focused on what we don't have that we fail to see,
 appreciate, or enjoy what we do have.

It shouldn't be dependent upon what we may or may not get in  return.....'s what echos from my heart today.


  1. Awww, Happy Birthday Khloe! I can't believe she's three already. And, our Rylan; she turns 3 in October! Time- goes.

    You are so right, Debi - what we do for others shouldn't come with a price tag! :)


  2. aahh - time goes by so fast. They have your heart every year....

  3. Love your post today... beautiful little girl... no wonder you were smitten from the start.

    And... I want to tell you that your comments about being an addition to people's lives and not taking away, and your relying on God for your needs regardless of what others contribute or take away...

    That's an echo from my own heart and experience. Whether they won't or can't give what I need or desire isn't the last word, for I, like you, bring those things to the One who wants to and can...and He does it with great joy!

    What I've learned too is when I receive from Him I can just go and love with open hands.

    Ahhhh... enjoyed my wee visit.

    Thanks, Debi!


  4. Your Little Chloe is adorable!
    Happy Birthday!

  5. Happy Birthday to your precious girl! She's adorable. Your "echo" spoke to my heart today.
