People are More Important

I've had this phrase floating around in my head a lot lately. I probably didn't make it up... but, I wanted to put it on paper... and hang it in my house.

I find myself often trying to adjust priorities. As an introverted girl, spending time with people wipes me out. It is natural for me to want to curl up on the couch and read, or watch a movie. But, life isn't about my books or TV shows. Life is about people. People are more important.

I have projects I want to get done. I want to exercise more than I do. I want to work more than I do. I want to spend more time in front of a screen. But friends, people are more important than all of those things. There is a time and a place for everything, but I want my life to have an impact on living souls... not inanimate objects.

So... here is a free printable. And my first hand-lettered project. Enjoy!

Insta - Friday

My husband watching his team, New England Patriots, win at the last moment a couple weeks ago.
He was similarly happy to see the Red Sox win the World Series the other night.

My birthday gift from Eric. A place to hang my cast iron.

Another birthday gift from my friend / coworker at Grace Road Church. We both enjoy this devotional site - #shereadstruth   This bright, sunny mug is my new fav!

A funny sight on the way to church. Someone placed a traffic cone on top of the head of these statues in front of the Memorial Art Gallery. Funny and harmless "vandalism".

Sometimes Pinterest is wonderful, and sometimes it fails. I tried to make Sweet Potato Gnocchi. They looked beautiful, but they tasted awful. Not sure if it was me or the recipe... but we had spaghetti that night instead.

I've been training for a 10k. I ran my second 5k race on Saturday. Pumpkins in the Park through Cobbs Hill. This guy stood out in the cold waiting for me to cross the finish line. We went out to breakfast at Spot Coffee  to warm up. Yum!
