consider it JOY!

Wild Olive Tees

So one day a loooonnnngg time ago (okay, sometime in March, which seems like a really long time ago) I commented on the Wild Olive tees blog, or something like that (I can't really remember, a lot has happened since then), and Amie from Wild Olive wrote back and said I'd won a shirt!!

Or that's not exactly what she said (I have 41 children people, my brain gets overloaded), but that's how I felt when they decided to just GIVE me one of their amazing, pretty, uplifting tees!

It was a hard decision, but I chose "consider it joy"!

And here, I was trying to get a picture with lots of the babies for the awesome Wild Olive tee ladies, but dear baby E was having none of it, as he was in a particularly jealous mood and none of us could concentrate on getting a picture between his screaming and a bunch of wiggling, crawling, drooling, toddling babies. Guess "consider it all joy" is a lesson he'd do well to embrace ~grin~

Then because I was really already considering buying one, I also chose "sing praises" because I love music and playing praise songs on piano and guitar. And I love the {neutral} color!

Thank you so much for encouraging me in this way. It was really sweet of you! And I love wearing them - how neat to have these phrases playing in my head all day!
