IN MY LIFE
I’m feeling a bit anxious this morning: my kids are in the middle of state testing at school and today is my busiest day of the week. However, I remind them to stay focused on the moment and give the rest to God…so I’m trying my best to embrace that advice for myself today.
In a moment of silence, this came in my head:
Lord, give me strength to get through,
to focus on you,
and to enjoy what I do.
Corny? Maybe. True? Definitely.
Nail Polish of the Week:
I’m going back to spring colors with a light lilac (BEEZER), but I’m also using a matte finish shine free topcoat for the first time. to be honest, I’m not a fan, but I’m just about out of my normal topcoat. Check out all the Butter LONDON colors here: http://bit.ly/ButLon
