Wearing Words of Encouragement

As some of you know, our girl and I took a road trip to Montana. We planned a stop in Boise, Idaho for a few days to be a part of the Brave Girl Symposium and then we planned on heading up through Northern Montana to Glacier National Park and on into Canada before getting her settled for school in Bozeman, MT. Well, plans changed due to fires but our time in Idaho had moments of fun and friendship. It wasn’t without it’s own challenges with some health issues but we did have some fun moments and I was able to see old friends and meet new ones. Abigail and I really got into the 80’s party which was a blast. 

Prior to heading to the Brave Girl Symposium, where I helped to oversee the Art Room, I painted a Brave Girl apron I had received one year after serving as staff. I wanted the brave girl on my apron to be carefree and speak words of encouragement. While at the Symposium, a new friend Sheri, gifted me with this beautiful butterfly pin. Each pin was different. The butterfly pin was perfect to add to my apron.   just thought I’d share my apron and encourage you that wearing your art or words of encouragement can uplift and be a daily reminder of gratitude.

Wishing you a beautiful and creative day!
