Wow, that was a quick way to put it. Thanks for stopping and leaving such a nice comment. I'm glad my post spoke to your heart. Also, I wanted to know if you would mind if I borow the laundry graphic to put on my blog. I think it is just so cute, and with 5 kids and one on the way, I'm always a little behind on the laundry.


Sincerely,

~The Robin's Nest~ said...

Hi there,
Hey sorry I have been MIA! I see that you tagged me like forever ago and I haven't been over here to respond. I'm really sorry about that. This year has been a blur and I am praying next year slows down a whole lot. If it wasn't for the Lord I would be a basket case! I do hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving-We did-I am trying to recoup from it still! :)
Take Care,
Robin~♥
