familybringsjoy Photo of real life in my home today. No staging. Seeing the beauty in this however imperfect it may be with ironing board out, clothes that need to be folded, pillows not where they should be, remote control out. @thenester #seethebeautyinimperfection #myhome #livingroom 6d

familybringsjoy The smile on this girls face each day brings me so much joy! Glad we took time to have a selfie Mom & Daughter moment. One of the last times with her being 11. Love each one of my kids. Hope I haven't messed them up too much! #mothersday2015 2w

familybringsjoy Our new house in Texas came with a pet...this bunny comes to eat our backyard grass every morning & night. Of course I'm not certain it is the same bunny; there are tons in our neighborhood. I didn't realize how much I missed our outdoor cat, Daisy, until I began to look for these bunnies every day. I'm fine with them eating our grass...but want to hurt them when they eat my pansies. #bunny #firstworldprobs #imissmykitty #backyard #texashome #spring 3w
  •   bethwilbur I will trade you! Ours came with a snake! 3w
  •   dmwooley Prosper has lots of ducks too. Especially if you have a pond in your neighborhood. They just wander the streets like they own the place. Too cute. 3w
  •   poodlesandpearls Bunnies will eat everything so cute though 2w

familybringsjoy A song comes to mind by Depeche Mode called Suffer Well today. "Just hang on. Suffer well. Sometimes it's hard." For close to 15 years I've been taking Adderall to manage my ADD (except when I was pregnant.) It has helped, yet I began to wonder how I would manage without this medicine when I'm older. I also worry if over too many years it might cause harm. I'm going to see about using essential oils to help me instead of medicine. It's been almost 3 days since I stopped taking the medicine. I feel like a zombie. I'm not sure how long it will take to completely detox but it's been rough. I'm not sure I'm suffering well, but I know I don't want to have to go through this again. #reallife #sufferwell #praying #ihateADD #transparent #nomakeup #ifeellikedeathwarmedover 4w
  •   familybringsjoy @kristylatzke Thanks Kristy! I love my Young Living Oils! I'm beginning to feel alive again. I hope I'm over the worst part. 4w
  •   iamcrystalbeutler Google Sam-E. Lots of pros and cons, but it's a natural way to deal with ADD. I think it works. 4w
  •   jmeyerhoffer I didn't even know adults took medication for ADD....which I'm not even sure I know what that is.... I'm sorry you are suffering.... 3w
  •   familybringsjoy @jmeyerhoffer It's Attention Deficit Disorder. And yes adults do take medicine for it. Thank you friend! 3w
  •   contemplatingbeauty Have u talked to the doc a lot weaning off? 3w
  •   stef_littlefield So sorry to hear you are suffering. I hope you are feeling better soon! @familybringsjoy 2w
  •   the.holly.tree I read your blog post this morning and have nothing but admiration for you. It takes grit, a long term view and determination to tackle such a task. You're not alone! xx 3d
  •   familybringsjoy @the.holly.tree Thank you Holly. Wish we lived closer. xo 2d

familybringsjoy Gallery wall in progress. Happy Monday! 1mon
  •   bethwilbur This is a great idea. I have all of the frames and everything to make one. Just wasn't sure how to get it all set up 1mon
  •   familybringsjoy @bethwilbur doing it this way HELPS A LOT! Use some old wrapping paper and trace the frames you want to use. I will nail on the paper and it makes it so easy to get them hung. 1mon
  •   andreaourbluefrontdoor Looking good! Can't wait to see it. I do the same thing and it's so much easier 1mon
  •   kimmilei Can't wait to see it complete. Come do mine next. I still haven't hung our family photos. 1mon
  •   familybringsjoy @kimmilei I'm just now hanging mine. 1mon

familybringsjoy Our new house in TX came with an extra bedroom. We finally have a guest bedroom! This is a first in almost 21 years. Until we sell our house in OK, I'm having to make the best with what we have. I'm taking @thenester 's advice and shopping from home. Stole my oldest's (the one serving a mission for a year & a half) beauty cart out of her room for one of the night stands. Made the other night stand by turning some baskets over & stacking them. Using lamps we used to have in our master bedroom. With the help of some books and magazines to make the lamps level...I think it turned out alright. What do you think? Any suggestions? 1mon

familybringsjoy Paper quilting a kite (decorative) for Spring. (I hate to sew!) Almost done...sigh...for this ADD'er, I've had to persevere to finish this project. I think it's going to be pretty when I'm done. Thanks @justagirl #sparkyourspring2015 #craftclass #crafttherapy #tedious #quilt #paper @rhonnafarrer 1mon
  •   familybringsjoy @justagirl I finished the sewing...enter the chorus of angels here...were the measurements for the shims on the email? I'm ready to glue this baby onto the frame! 🏻🏻🏻 1mon
  •   familybringsjoy @iamcrystalbeutler I'll post a photo of the kite when it's done. Thanks girl! 1mon
  •   justagirl Mine were 32 inches...just less than a yard! 1mon
  •   kimmilei That's adorable. I can't wait to see the finished product. 1mon
  •   lyndsaycreates I'm starting to think I have ADD... Really. 1mon
  •   familybringsjoy @lyndsaycreates It's not the end of the world if you do. However, I'm not sure that is true. You have written a book! You finish lots of projects! Email me and we can talk about it, but whether you have it or not, you seem to be able to function well. (Without meds ) 1mon
  •   lyndsaycreates @familybringsjoy True. When I take the online tests, they say I don't because I have the ability to finish projects--large, involved projects. But I do tend to bounce around between projects, or between tasks within a project. Having to do repetitive work can make me crazy. But then at times I can get really into a project and focus. It depends. You should see me with housework, though. I am always abandoning near-finished tasks to do another task. Ugh. 1mon
  •   stef_littlefield Fun!! Love these prints!1mon

  •   kimmilei Beautiful girl! I love seeing pictures from her mission. 2mon
  •   familybringsjoy @kimmilei Me too! Can't you tell she has an iPad now?! She can take selfies again! lol! 2mon
  •   terrgalvan So cute 2mon
  •   kimmilei @familybringsjoy ha ha that's hilarious. I was wondering how she was surviving with out technology. But guess she's got an iPad now. 2mon
  •   familybringsjoy @kimmilei She is limited to only certain apps on the iPad which help with the missionary work. She said they've been able to show the church videos right on the doorstep. Besides, it's the digital age...I guess the church is trying to keep up in that regards. 2mon
  •   kimmilei I think it is a great tool. I am glad they allow them to use them. 2mon
  •   zionbags Awesome 1mon
