Thursday Thoughts....

Happy Thursday Ladies!
Hope you are all having a great week.  I have been major blog slacking this week.  With the kids just getting back home and trying to get ready for our trip to Michigan...(we left bright and early this morning) I have had no time to so much as even compose a thought!
Anyway....I am sure many of you who are on social media and who blog have heard about Leslie Sisti , she blogged over at Blonde Ambition, and how she passed away earlier this week.  I started reading her blog a while back, and it was definitely one of my favorites to read!  I was absolutely heartbroken to hear of her passing, she was a young, beautiful wife and mother, and taken WAY TOO SOON!!
As a mother, this breaks my heart so much, these two little girls will grow up without their mother.
I hear sad stories all the time, but this one really got to me.  I just assume I will be around to watch my children grow, be here to watch them get married, have children, etc....but the truth is tomorrow is not promised to any of us.  Now I know we cannot live our life in constant fear of dying, but we can live our life to the fullest each day.  Making every single minute count, making it a point to tell our loved ones how much they mean to us, not holding grudges over the small stuff. 
I know that everything happens for a reason, and God always has a plan, but if I am being honest I definitely question it sometimes.  Why do bad things happen to good people?  What possible reason is there?  I can't sit here driving myself crazy asking these questions...I am aware of that, so all that I can do is treasure every single minute I have here. 
Elaine, over at Honey Pie Accessories is starting Sisti Sisters Letter Writing Campaign, it will be a collection of letters for Leslie's two daughters to read one day. I think it is wonderful that she is doing this for these sweet little girls.  I am sure when they are older, and read them all, they will be so thankful to have these.  If you are interested in participating, send Elaine an email to and put in the subject line "Sisti Sisters Letters"

Also a GoFund Me page has been set up for Caroline and Ainsley for college and their weddings, I can't even think of a better cause to give to than this.  Any little bit, even $5 can help.  You can go HERE to donate!

So today, hug your loved ones a little tighter, make sure everyone knows how important they are to you, say you're sorry, be kind...make each day count with the ones who mean the most to you!
See you back here tomorrow for Friday Favorites!


  1. I'm with you, Kimm. This story hit me extra hard this week. I'm not a Mom or a wife yet but I can't fathom the pain their family must feel. I'm 22 and still need my Mom so my heart breaks for her girls who will never truly know their Mom. Prayers for them.


  2. Kimm, thank you for sharing Leslie today. Have a great trip. Enjoy those babies!
