Today for Sunday Style is was snowing in the Spring time which is soooooo not my favorite. So I threw on a warm oversized hat of course and a dark dress with a bright pop of orange. Details are below. Today I wanted to share some thoughts in honor of Sunday Style and the woman’s conference. I don’t usually share a thought it’s usually only about fashion but today I feel very inspired to share some of the my most #inspiredby thoughts of #womensconference below. As you know I have MIA lately and this is because I have lost some very dear friends to me and my family. My best friend hubby and my husbands best friend Bryan Byrge lost is life in a tragic accident riding his bike to work with another dear friend of ours who lives down the street John Coons. They were training for a race with my hubby that they were all suppose to do together and leave this weekend for. So they were riding their bike to work and were struck by a truck who didn’t even stop and hit them full force head on. They were both some of the most amazing men I know. Bryan being my next door neighbor was more than just a guy who lived next door. He was my kids 2nd dad and picked up carpool each day for my family. There has not been a christmas, summer, new years eve, and a halloween without him in our lives. We traveled together as families and spent family nights together. All the teens just loved him and Jhon. They were in our church as youth and scout leaders. They made everyone laugh so hard. I have never lost anyone close to me like them before. My heart aches for his 4 children and John’s 3 children. I want to take all their pain away each day. I know I can’t so this sometimes leaves me helpless and feeling alone. I know this is not what I am suppose to feel so I have to kick myself in the butt and just go be happy and smile around them and keep living. I know this is what both of them would have wanted. My best friend Katie is hurting and I just want to fix it for her, so I try to just be next to her at all times. I love her. She is my person. She has always been there for me so I will do everything in my power to be there for her as much as I can. I know life is short but it never makes sense until it happens right in front of you and breaks your heart into a million pieces. So today has been hard for me to pick myself up and move to the next day but I know as much as I pray to know what to do to help my best friend and her family that is what I will do, pray and pray every hour if I need to so I can understand why and how to help her and her cute family. So here is what has inspired me to take more steps today from listening to Women’s Conference.
1. “The word perfect comes from a greek wordages and means complete”- If you look at not being perfect but yet complete it’s much more softer and doable. I want to keep going and moving when I think of this.
2. “We may not want to include certain chapters in our book of life, but we just have to keep going and wait and see how our story turns out”- Once again everyday build up testimony around faith. One of the most hard things to do in life is to have faith and I work on this each day and now I am waiting for the next chapter and trying to prepare myself each day so I can make it through whatever is to come.
3. I was inspired by the most beautiful songs that the 8 year old girls stood up to sing “I am a child of god” with no music behind them just pure beauty. I had chills all over my body. NOW BACK TO JUST SOME FUN FASHION:
