Read the Stories:
"I've found that one of the most fulfilling aspects in life is paying tribute to someone who has accomplished something in their own life. Whether a family member has been promoted at work, a friend was admitted into the school of their dreams, or a neighbor's daily exercise has resulted in a healthier way of life, no accomplishment is too big or too small to  take notice and let them know you care.Over the years my way of expressing joy and sharing in others' achievements has evolved." 
"Gift-giving is my love language. It is how I show the most special people in my life that I love them, appreciate them, and I'm proud of them. I use gifts to show people I love them.It doesn't have to be a big, elaborate gift. In fact, something as simple as an invitation to meet for coffee at Starbucks® is a treat for me--and I know many mamas agree.One of the things that meant the most to be after Hayes was born was a sweet friend who stopped by with my favorite Skinny Vanilla Latte and a bag of my favorite candy." 
"It was a hard morning, saying goodbye to our pup of sixteen years with a final scratch of the ears, knowing she was peaceful.The Momma & I stood together outside the vet's office, tears flowing freely in our sadness, & we wondered how to go on with our day & walk away from her. How we could pretend everything was normal, knowing that final goodbyes had just been said as an act of human selflessness, to let Missy go out of love? 
"Y'all know we have 3 kids with one on the way, right?   Well if you have more than one kid you know how very hard it can be to spend quality time with just one of them.   What my husband and I try to do is have a little one-on-one parent/kid time with each of them. It's especially fun to do when they are being good listeners or helpers, and we want to show them how thankful we are that they are helping our family by doing so." 

There Is No Way A Friend Would Not Smile
