My mission is to provide you with inspiration and encouragement to live everyday to it's fullest. I do this by sharing the simple things in life such as recipes to the most difficult of things such a life. We all know life is a struggle and many days a balancing act, but I am here to inspire you to do it well. Everything I write about is designed to inspire as well as encourage you to be a "better" you that you can be. Everything I share is raw and real. I do not cover up or sugar coat what I write about. This would benefit no one. My goal is for you to walk away feeling uplifted and encouraged after leaving my page. Lastly, I am here to remind you that you are… enough and beautiful… just the way you are.
I just had to close out my day with a little Christmas humor. This “Black Hole of Christmas”, my loving daughter named it, is what my future Christmas projects will look like eventually for my business @HL&E Designs.
I sat down tonight to pull some thoughts together and this is what they looked like when I came back to them.
This is also what happens when you run out of day to finish pulling your thoughts together. You are left with this never ending black hole.
For anyone who feels as behind as me this Christmas season, I hope this helps to break up some of the stress, anxiety, and exhaustion and replaces it with a moment of laughter.
We will pull this off, Friends. I can not guarantee that we will be sane still, but I can promise, Christmas will come and go just like it does every year, whether we are ready for it or not.
Tomorrow is a new day, Friends. We can only accomplish all that our twenty-four hours will allow. Go to bed, forget about the never-ending to-do list, and rest tonight. Tomorrow will bring a new day to work on more.
Are you looking for an easy recipe to make with left over chicken and spaghetti noodles?
This soup recipe is an easy one and great for a lunch or a supper on a cold rainy or snowy day.
Left over chicken (or fresh) (amount is your preference)
Left over spaghetti noodles (or fresh) (amount is your preference)
Carrots (match box sticks work best) (amount is your preference)
1/2 onion diced
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp parsley
3 cubes of chicken broth with 4 cups of water (or) 4 cups of liquid chicken broth
In a medium sauce pan on medium heat, add either the water with bullion cubes or the chicken broth to the pan. Cut up chicken into small pieces then cut spaghetti noodles into soup sized pieces. Add a handful of carrots into the broth as well as all the seasonings and onions.
Allow to cook until the carrots are soft for approximately for 20 mins.
Today’s Encouragement is meant to make you smile at a minimum and laugh at best. I find humor at times to be encouraging and it is my hope today you will as well.
