We did something super fun yesterday!! We went to visit my bff Shanda! She’s working with Caprock Highschool and some of their seniors to brighten up our community! (Check our Blank Spaces on Facebook)
I recently read an article of a mom who raised three girls who became very successful. She was asked what she did to helped them become who they are today. She basically said she taught them to think about others and their community. She taught them that money isn’t everything. She said she was a doer. When others would talk about things needing to be done, she would be the one to take action. She made me realize that our community is what our kids are growing up in. Our neighbors are the ones who are always near us and someone’s everyone needs a bit of help. She made me look at what I’m teaching b and soon Benton. I want to be the mom that is independent and helps out all around. I want to show b that helping others and the community is more than fortune and fame. I want to teach them what the love of God looks like. The Bible says so many things about loving others. I want to instill that in them.
1 Peter 4:8: “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” John 15:12: “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” 1 Corinthians 13:13: “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
So I’ve been looking at things that I can do with b. Ways to help out others. Then I saw Shanda post on Facebook. She posted about making this mural on the walls over at Snack Pak 4 Kids. They were taking volunteers to help them paint! I seriously thought that was the coolest thing ever!! I decided that would be something sooo cool to show b and to let her paint something on there. So that’s what we did!!
Shanda welcomes us and showed us everything! She showed b how to paint and let her paint a flower. And y’all, Shanda even let bp paint!! (Heart melted!) B girl had the best time! She even got to go look at their garden! Y’all! These people are the best! What they are doing is the best! If you’re local go check out the mural over at Snack Pak 4 kids in Amarillo, Texas!
Here’s a few pictures of our time there!
My shirt says “Do more of what makes you happy.” I’d say we are doing it!! We loved helping others! We love our community! These people are doing what they love and what makes them happy!
