Ever-Presence

18 Apr

I had one of my ever-present days today. They feel great- the ones where my mind follows my heart and all actions follow my guiding principles for life and family. There was a spectacular tea party complete with storytelling.

    Thanks for this post! I needed to hear this today. Follow my heart and their lead and all of our needs will be met. Funny how a five minute break at the computer will lead you just where you need to be… off to play:-)
