Sometimes you just read those things that are totally inspiring, and make you want to be a 'better person' all around. I've come across a few of those 'reads' lately!
Now, anyone who knows me also knows that the word 'cozy' was once banned from my vocabulary because...I use it too much! I am all about comfort foods, loving families, big quilts, hot coffee on a rainy day....you get the picture. My family (my parents and siblings, that is), at one point decided they'd had enough and told me to drop the 'cozy' word and get a life! Point taken....
However, read some of these blogs/news articles I've mentioned below, and I think you'll get a better perspective on my love of 'coziness.' The families in these blogs are very inspiring. I just recently came across them, and have been enjoying reading about their day-to-day activities and family life. They just really exemplify to me the peace, satisfaction, and yes, even coziness that can result when a family is run well under God's leadership.
This first family, mentioned in this news article, just had their 17th child! Yep, you read that correctly. Seventeen! Now, I live in a community where it's not unusual to see large families---8-12 kids. But 17? This was the first I'd heard of that many :) Check out their page.
This second family has a very nice blog. There are all kinds of helpful things on here, like yummy recipes and just fun reading.
The third family has a beautiful blog that just speaks volumes about what their family and home life must be like. Every time I've visited I've been interested to see what new thing they're posting about today! (Much thanks to andrea for pointing out this site!)
So, have some fun, get a cup of coffee or tea, and check out some of these sites. I think you'll agree with me that 'coziness', at least in moderation, has it's place :)
