Blue Monday: Two Special Gifts



Today I'm linking up for the first time with SmilingSally for Blue Monday. To visit other Blue Monday participants, click here.


My blue item today is this beautiful little figurine that my 10 year old daughter, Lynzie, gave to me this last Christmas. What is so special about her is that Lynzie had picked out one very similar to it weeks before and told me how much she liked it. I told her to put it on her Christmas list!

When I opened her gift, it really blessed me that she'd chosen something that she wanted so badly to give to me. To add to the specialness, I had purchased the one she picked out and stuck it in her stocking---so we ended up with a matching set!

My daughter Lynzie is one of God's most special gifts to me! She is not only a lovely young lady of whom I grow more and more proud each year, but she's also becoming a close friend and prayer partner!

The second special gift I'd like to introduce is also one of my children---our newest family member, Liam Bradley! Liam was born on May 12 and was the tie breaker for our three boys and three girls! While he's nice and pink, I figured blue is the color associated with baby boys so it's not too far of a stretch to feature him on Blue Monday, right?

Have a great Blue Monday everyone and be sure to check out all the other Blue Monday bloggers at SmilingSally!

  11. Lovely post for Blue Monday! You asked where I found the vintage ad I posted today. It is from a book called, "Memories of a Lifetime: Vintage Labels from a Lady's Dressing Room." I purchased it on Amazon.com and it is wonderfully filled with ads of many colors and styles!

  13. I, of course, love the blue you chose to share with us today. Your "tie breaker' steals the show, however. What a sweet baby. I hope you are having a wonderful Blue Monday. Blessings...Mary

  14. That gift really is sweet. When we had 3 boys and 3 girls in my family growing up my mother was really upset to be pregnant again. She thought her perfect 3 and 3 was going to be spoiled but then she had twins...a boy and a girl so we were 4 boys and 4 girls! Fun times...
