Sick Day & Uniquely Me.

Jasha & I woke up with some coldish sickness.
Not fun.
BUT last night we had an amazing time at the Prayer Furnace.
Truly it was just the message we needed to hear.

Anywhoo... thank you for all your wonderful comments on my day 1 post of the Celebrate 31 Challenge. 
I haven't gotten the chance to read too many yet, but I look forward to following many of you on this journey.

DAY 2: What Makes You Uniquely You?

My name is...
Or Ellie to my Hubs &
I have a story that only I can tell.
As I believe we all do.

My pains, my joys, my laughs, my wrinkles.. 
my memories... all tucked within my little self.
I am unique because I was created to compliment Joshua James 
(or Jasha to me...)
God made me unique just as he made us all unique.
Just like He is making my son unique and just like He made you unique.

It is a simplistic beauty...
To be unique is to be alive.
