The world is filled with brilliant people. I used to feel bad because I wasn't one of them, but now I just rejoice because I can sit back and glean from their wisdom. Our home is filled with wonderful things and thoughts from such smart people.
Now I know my children will get upset when I say I'm not one of the smart people. I know I'm intelligent and I have talents and gifts, however I don't have every gift and talent and I appreciate the complexities of other people's minds and talents.
Some brilliant person thought to put their washi tape on a thread holder. Found it on pinterest and it's the perfect solution for all of us washi users to find what we need. It looks pretty and makes me so happy to see that array of colors.
John teases us about your use of pinterest, but I regularly implement the ideas I see. Gus has a beautiful dress she is making from an pin she found. Not to mention all the delicious dishes that we have tried. Having the app makes cooking quite delightful when you can pull out your phone and have the recipe available while shopping or cooking.
Lots of people smarter than me have taught about scripture journals and writing things down as prompted. This simple practice has enriched my study and helped me draw closer to a loving Heavenly Father. I would have never thought of this on my own and I am so thankful for the things I have learned.
I am grateful for a smart doctor and surgeon who last week scrapped, cleaned, cauterized, cut, and repaired my tendon all in hopes that I can keep it long term. It is going to be a longer recovery road, but I'm on it and I'm so thankful for his knowledge and skill.
I am so thankful for a brilliant husband who knows just what to say to make my day brighter. Who brings home a beautiful surprise just because. He is an amazing man, I'm so thankful he is my friend.
This is not the best image technically, but I'm so thankful that I have been able to learn from other brilliant people who to capture the wonderful moments of my family. I would have missed this toothless grin all stuffed with pillows ready to a sumo competition. I love being able to capture the moments of our lives so that I can remember the silliness of the littles.
Smart people are awesome. Everyone has something to share and bless the lives of others, whether it's always finding the beauty and joy in things or to writing a simple essay that uplifts. We can enrich not only our own lives, but the lives of the people we associate with.
