Yesterday I went to Aldi's to go grocery shopping. I knew it was a bit risky to go after the morning working at the YMCA, but I was determined to get it done. Titus has been battling a cold and he did not nap at the YMCA so I thought he would maybe sleep at the store. I was wrong. I got through to the check out and had to start to hold him and bounce him all the while trying to pack my groceries up so I could get out of there and get him to his crib.
A very nice lady stopped and asked, "miss, may I help you pack your groceries?" :) How sweet was that! You do not see many people stopping from there busy schedules to help others much more and I was extremely blessed by her kindness. :) I accepted the help and she was so sweet to my daughter and encouraging me that better days out weigh the cranky ones. :)
She even went a step farther. After I got to my car and unloaded everything in it she came back around and handed me a quarter and said I will take your cart back. AWESOME! I was truly blessed by here!
Who knows she might have had some angel wings. :) I pray that she is blessed this week to!
Have you been blessed by someone's kindness lately? Share it in the comments I would love to hear it. :)

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
