Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer

I also wanted to link the Holly Otten post again, as the giveaway is going on all week and if there is someone who might need to here Holly’s message of hope or desire the chance to win the book I hope they find us! Happy Monday! (almost!). I love the story about William and his card…that is impressive. Also off to check out the journal and art card links! Have a great week. 😉
