...and share your thoughts. I've often heard the claim that all those little decisions we make throughout our days are neither here or there (what socks you choose to wear, shampoo or baking soda solution to wash our hair, mac and cheese versus potato soup for dinner, etc...) ...well, ...they just don't really impact our world, near or far. Neither do they matter much in the eternal scope of things. This author would not agree with that philosophy. I'd already been meditating on that very thought for several months when I came across her blog post. While I think there are obviously certain decisions that have more eternal weight and significance (salvation, marriage, etc.), I think the Lord has been teaching me that I can't begin to understand the impact or consequences of what seem to be simple and unimportant decisions. That truth impacts enormously daily life as a wife, mama and friend.What about you? What do you think?

I don't know about your family, but finding cute, modest and wearable swimsuits for all the girls in this house can be a challenge, and this is one of those challenges that is only going to grow right along with them as they get older. My oldest has recently had to move up from the children's department to junior's or women's, depending upon the store, and we spent several hours trying on suits some weeks back so that we could head to the Great Wolf Lodge as a family over Spring Break. When I think of trying to do that times 6...? Oh well, needless to say, it is one of those overwhelming thoughts and I'm glad that THAT reality is still more than a few days down the road!
I stumbled across this giveaway, and decided to take advantage of it. In general, I buy my suits from Lands End and can sometimes find ones that I like at Walmart (but they don't last as long); I'd never heard of Hapari, but looking through their selection, it did appear that there were some very nice possibilities available. Go ahead and take a look, and let me know what suits/combos you'd pick for you or your girls (if you have 'em).
And if you'd like to participate in this giveaway, head on over to "Two of a Kind" to enter.
