The Refrigerator.

We are currently borrowing a refrigerator from my uncle, who got it from my grandmother. It has a large mark on the front where some careless painters got paint on it. I use this as an excuse to display all kinds of things, like this magnet my parents gave me recently …


This picture of Husband and ONE when he was tiny and needed help to toddle around …


And finally, the manifesto.


The author is one of my mother’s discoveries, researcher, author and speaker Brene Brown. Her name is supposed to have a little mark over the “e” on the end but I can’t figure out how to do it. She seems like an amazing woman. If you visit her website, you’ll see what I mean. I love her message of authenticity; I feel like I met someone who has researched and studied something I just now figured out – that to be yourself, truly, is the greatest gift you can give yourself and your family.

I downloaded this manifesto from her site because I loved the very end of it so much. It says, “I will not teach or love or show you anything perfectly, but I will let you see me, and I will always hold sacred the gift of seeing you.”

It gets me every time. Love this lady.
