Kindness in Your Smile

Well, I’m back at work and it’s somehow the middle of the week. And I’m back at work with a vengeance, too. I kind of forgot about easing back in and jumped in with both feet. I’ve been working at the BIC all day, and have several clients tonight. Oops…

Anyway, thank you thank you thank you for the caring comments about my family and Beth. Reading each one was like a hug to my heart <3

Also, thank you to my lovely guest posters who held the fort down while I was with family. Love that this little blogging community has each others’ backs 😉

Bloggers: Have you ever experienced a time when another blogger had your back or vice versa?

Tomorrow morning I’ll resume with normal posting, and man have I got some delicious recipes for you guys. I’m sure it will be clear I spent my idle time in the kitchen :)


For Beth…


Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.

                                                      – Mother Theresa


I love this quote, and it reminds me of Beth to the nth degree.

For Beth, who touched the lives of nearly everyone she met. I’ll miss you forever.
