Welcome to the first Inspiration Party at the White Farmhouse!
I hope that everyone has on their party hat!
Ok, so here are the rules.
I put a McLinky for you to use to post about someone who has inspired you lately. Big or small. It takes alot to put together the wonderful and thoughtful posts that are out there. So now is the time to thank them for all their hard work!
You have to invite them to read the nice thoughts that you read about them.
You can also give them the above button as a gift.
Thanks again to Jan @ Bobbypins Boardwalk for making me the button!
You can also just leave a comment cause I am a tramp for comments!
So now onto my inspiration. There are so many wonderful people that I have met out in blogland. I told my husband that I want to win the lottery so I can go meet all of you. And cook for you. And clean for you. For a week. Because for some odd reason I just LOVE to clean other people's houses. I don't want anyone to feel slighted by not being my first choice. It was really hard to pick just one!
There is one out there that is an exception.
When I started blogging, I almost gave up on it. The only followers that I had were family members that I could threaten with death or great bodily harm unless they joined.
She was my first though. She made my day in so many ways that year + ago that she will ever know. My daughter feigned blindness when I did my "I got my first follower" happy dance.
Since then she has gained a special place in my heart. I actually cried when she gave me my first award.
She has inspired me to continue on. For that, I am truly a better person.
Hell, she even inspired me to lose weight! 7 lbs down now! About 200 more to go though.
Who is this wonderful person?
Lori @ Wildflowers!
If you haven't visited her blog you must! She is just the sweetest, upbeat, happiest person on the face of the earth! She is encouragement and inspiration all rolled up in one sweet little package.
She calls her an ordinary girl, but she is anything but ordinary. She is married to a wonderful man who loves her deeply, she loves and is dedicated to her family and likes to keep momentos around to remind her of them.
I am so proud to call her my friend!
I guess she has been on my mind lately because I have been working on the kids rooms. She was my inspiration for their rooms. I have tried to decorate them to what they would like them to be, not what I want. To express their individual personalities. To encourage them to grow. Every time that I go in them I smile cause they make me think of her and how she has improved my life.
So.... there it is! My inspiration for the month. My friend who I absolutely love! Lori!
Thank you for being my friend, for your support and just for being you! You truly make the world a better place to be!
Party ends Monday night!
