Kelle Hampton.

You know how I love to be inspired by others. As a matter of fact, I adore being inspired by others. We get so completely lost in every day life, sometimes it takes something so simple - words, thoughts, photos, ideas - to help nudge us to stop & reach for calm. Recall this post? I've discovered that I have been so consumed building my life, that I haven't been living my life. I thank God for my recent discovery. Because things are a changin'. And this mama sure is smilin'. :)

Seldom do I find a blog that stops me in my tracks. I never knew about Kelle Hampton. Never heard of her blog. It was being discussed, briefly, on MWOP. So I wanted to take a peek. Am I ever so glad I did. Her blog did just that - it stopped me in my tracks. It absorbed my heart.

I was mesmerized. I was drawn into her writing as if it were a warm, fluffy, cozy bed. Kelle's story is heartwarming. Full of hope. Love. Grace. Mercy. Inspiration. Kelle had a vision for her future. She still does. But her plan & God's plan were two totally different things. Only, Kelle didn't know it.
Don't you love when someone has a beautiful heart on the inside, and can display it so beautifully on the outside, as well? The way she lives, the way she mothers, the love she embraces, the perspective she has for life.
You too be inspired. Appreciate altered plans. Make changes. Live in the simple.

You can find Kelle's blog here. ♥

It's a beautiful day. How are you going to choose to live it? It's your choice.

I love her blog...I have been following it since Nella was born. It is the first thing I check after I send my family out the door in the morning. I also share something with you..adoption. We adopted seven years ago and I is divine! I love running across other adoption blogs!
