Creating A Beautiful Life

Melissa at The Inspired Room (hey this is my second post in a row that has mentioned her blog!)  has been hosting this "Beautiful Life" Mr. Linky fun on Fridays.  This is my first time participating, but it has been neat to read her posts (and others') about finding ways to life a beautiful life.

Today she encouraged us to think about capturing beautiful moments...

I feel very fortunate to have a close, loving family but it has delighted me to see the way my children have developed friendships with each other.  This week has seen Kyle, Rachel and Sarah spending alot of time playing together along the creek and in our horse pasture.  It also has been sweet to see my oldest girls as they have become very good friends to each other.  This is beautiful to me... 

What is beautiful in your life?


  1. My family and friends are very beautiful!

  2. I have all my children home this weekend- it is a beautiful life-

  3. My family..friends..whether..real life or blog....I appreciate and value all...but most of all a Saviour that loves me,despite myself.

  4. my family and my fixer-upper cottage is getting beautiful...slowly!

  5. My kind and loving husband of 35 years, and our children and grandchildren make my life beautiful!

  6. I can't think of much that is not beautiful in my life, even the bad stuff, which is far outweighed by the good. Beauty and blessings abound if one only looks for them. Have a wonderful weekend!
