Inspired by. . . my desk calendar

Look around. Whether your "workplace" is a desk, a car, a kitchen, or some other place, do you surround yourself with objects, pictures, or sayings that inspire you?

I do.

Here are a few things from my desk top. Maybe they'll inspire you, too.



Seriously, who can look at that face and not be happy?  My niece, Sophia, inspires me everyday!



This inspiring quote proves itself everyday in my world.



This calming candle and sweet card from a friend inspire me and remind me to be thankful for the special people with whom God has blessed my life.

Close by, just out of the picture is a figurine of a woman releasing a butterfly. It's inscribed with these words:

"You are an amazing woman."

I'm really not. But my husband thinks I am, and this figurine is a visual inspiration to me to live up to his belief in me.


(Oh, and yes, that IS another picture of my precious niece in the background. LOL!)


There is one more item on my desk that I'd like to share with you. Maybe you have one, too.



Textured with Kim's 123


My desk calendar.

The pictures are all mouthpainted by people with disabilities.

'Nuf said.


What's inspiring you today?


With gratitude,
