Well January is almost over (thank goodness) and February is less than a week away! There are many things I like about February …. my birthday, (no I do not like getting older but yes I like birthdays) our adoption papers will be signed, (which is pretty much the best birthday gift ever, Valentines Day (spread the love) my nieces birthday, (told you I like birthdays) Family Day, (that means daddy has the day off work – nothing better than that) and than finally we are going on vacation! January is always a hard month its all about coming off the Christmas high, suffering unpredictable weather here in Canada meaning snow and cold temperatures which don’t allow for my babies to play outside and for us this January was pledged with sickness – no fun! So January we are happy to see you go and are excited to welcome February! With February almost here and Valentines Day not to far away there are lots of fun pink and red and hearts to be found all around. Today I thought I would share some of the Valentines Goodies that made my list this year! These gifts would also be perfect to snatch up and use through the year to encourage a friend or just share some love they don’t have to be just for Valentines Day!

  • Sometimes being an adult you gotta do scary things like getting a bunch of bloodwork and other tests done in order to get answers that are needed but like I shared earlier this week it’s all about your mindset. Yes I was sweating and shaking with nerves wishing I didn’t have to do it but I also was thankful that I have a dr who cares and wants answers, thankful for that these tests are available to me and especially thankful for a gentle and kind nurse who made it easier for me.
  • Woke up to the most beautiful white snow and was immediately thankful it was snow and not the rain they are calling for - thankful that the kiddies have snow to play in (which makes them so happy) and thankful that we have different seasons to experience. It’s amazing how a grateful heart changes your out look on things. There is a lot I could chose to complain about today but where I put my thoughts is my choice and will definitely effects my  entire day! Look for the positives in your day focus on those and don’t give negative thoughts a place in your heart and mind!
  • Mama, You were given these children, you! No one else. 
You were given these children because you are who they need.
You have the soul to love them even on their hard days.
You have the motivation and love to give these children everything they need.
You have the heart to wake up every morning and do it all over again, 
Even when you are exhausted. You have the smile that they crave and the touch to make everything okay. You are their sunshine and their comfort. You are theirs and they are yours! On the days you are questioning yourself, remember this! You’ve got this!
  • If you missed it we have a family update up on the blog! www.katiespinks.com
  • After 13 days together this guys Christmas holidays came to an end and I’m not the only one sad about it... little people keep asking “how many more minutes till daddy gets home?” Thankful for how hard he works but safe to say @tspinksy your people miss you!
  • 2018 you were the year of crazy adventure from moving to a new city, saying yes to another foster baby, a new school, new relationships - A year of change and challenge but we are ending the year full of excitement for 2019 and thankful for all that 2018 taught us!
