Good morning, Reader! I hope you’re having a beautiful day, thus far. I cannot believe it’s 2014, not to mention so close to February! Where is the time going?!
This week, I am SO thankful for modern medicine. My sweet baby nephew was hospitalized for 4 days because he wasn’t feeling so well! It was a scary time for our whole family, but after just his first night he was feeling better… and each day showed such wonderful improvement. Now that he is home, I can only say more prayers of thanks for Ethan’s recovery. Please send my sister and brother-in-law some love as they are finally settling in at home, with no illnesses and lots of snuggles. …and feast your eyes on these adorable southern boys, living it up with the top down <3

Regardless of dwarfism, this week I want to say how proud I am to know Becky Curran! She was featured HERE this weekend, showcasing her amazing motivational speaking and giving a bit of an overview about her. One of my favorite things about Becky, and why I love that we have become friends is that she doesn’t define herself as someone with dwarfism, or a woman, or a daughter, sister, friend… she is a motivational speaker. No matter what she is doing, she is motivating- giving advice, offering a listening ear or welcoming hug. Of course much of what she talks about comes back to her
limitations differences, but these topics do more than educate the many she speaks to, her words inspire hope and perseverance- because the only limitations you have are those you put on yourself.

And some random for your week? Check out THIS 14 minute workout. I, myself, have had some shortcomings since the beginning of the year- struggling to keep up with my workouts and pulling the “I don’t have a gym membership” card way too often. So, when I saw this post from my friends over at The F Word (it’s not what you think), I knew I needed to share it! Be easy on yourself, but remember, that no one regrets going to the gym after the next day- enjoy the burn!
Here’s to making this week one full of taking care of you!
