"You is Important" by Aibileen Clark

This is my new favorite quote.  I finally got to watch "The Help" last weekend.  It was an inspiring movie.  I laughed.  I cried.  I felt shame and disgust.  I think my most favorite part of the movie was Minny telling her "BIG" secret to Skeeter and Aibileen.  HAHA!!!  I love it!!!  Attention to all you Mrs. Hilly want-to-be's it's in chapter 12.  LOL!!

Seriously, in God's eyes we are all important.  No matter where we come from or what color we are.  We are no better than the person sitting right next to you.  We are all equal and have a purpose for His glory.  All you need to do to get started is one random act of kindness a day.  Before you know it, it spreads like wild fire. 

Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes today. I had another wonderful birthday. It started off with my beautiful children wishing me a "happy birthday." I love my snuggle bugs. Poor Colton has been battling a cold.  Millard and Peggy brought me lunch from my favorite restaurant, "Sweet Peppers Deli."  Yum!  On top of that, they picked up my favorite plate - chicken salad on a croissant with a side salad.  Ahhhh!  Y'all it's soooo delish.  They also gave me a slice of one of my favorite desserts - chocolate eruption.  It's basically a chocolate cheesecake on a chocolate cake bottom.  Doug surprised me by leaving work early enough to pick up Katie from school.  He apparently likes my photography because he purchased a new lens for my camera.  It's different and I've had my other one for so long that it's just going to take time to adjust.  We did try it out tonight and I have to say that the pictures were brighter and have more clarity. 

I hope you have a very blessed week and remember "You is kind, you is smart and you is important." 

God Bless!

We just watched that movie too. It was really good. And I know Octavia Spencer, she's from Alabama and went to high school with my brother! I went to the same high school but a few years later. Octavia also helped me audition for some movies that were filmed in Alabama. She's a sweetheart and I hope she wins the Oscar too!
