Happy Thanksgiving to the Best Blog Readers EVER

Y’all need to know how thankful I am for each and every one of you, dear readers.

You are the very reason I am still getting up to pump in the middle of the night!

I so enjoy the stillness of that hour…  Creating new posts for you, reading your comments, seeing who ‘liked’ the latest over on the Fairy’s Facebook page…

Thank you.

Thank you to all of my email subscribers – it blesses me so much that you choose to let me pop in your inbox daily!

Thank you to the people who think my posts are worthy of a ‘share’ on Twitter or Facebook.

Thank you for ‘pinning’ many of my posts to Pinterest.  (Oh, Pinterest.  You don’t even know how grateful I am for YOU!)

Thank you for spreading the word about the Fairy to your friends and family.

Thank you for not being offended by my excessive use of exclamation points!!! :-)

Thank you for taking the time to send me an email telling me about an idea that was shared and how you used it in your Happy Home.

Thank you for doing silly things for me – like casting a vote for my Pizza Bubble Recipe or helping me win the Homeschool Blog Award for Best Homemaking and Recipe Blog.

Thank you for thinking this blog has something to offer, even though I don’t have amazing photography skills or state of the art blog design.

Thank you for not getting mad at me if I don’t respond to your emails or comments – I read every single one and find the greatest joy in them, but boys howdy!  I am not the best about writing back.  PLEASE know they mean the WORLD to me.

Thank you for believing in the call to build Happy Homes.

YOU, sweet bloggy readers, are the very inspiration behind this site.

I just look at my stats and I am inspired that you take the time to find helpful ideas for creating meaningful and magical and Christ-centered moments with your families.

Not to mention that I never EVER would have survived the great trial of the Happy Baby’s hospitalization without the precious place of refuge this little blog became for me as your comments, prayers, support, and encouragement poured in with every posted update.

How I praise God for the strength He has given our Happy Home through your unbelievable kindness!

May the Lord bless YOU this holiday season.

Happy Thanksgiving.

-Julie :-)

  1. Julie, My Dear, you have helped me through a rough year. You have touched my heart and spirit with your testimony of our Savior. It is through other people that most of the prayers of His children are answered. I’ve rejoiced with you, prayed for you, and cried for you. I have 5 daughters and 16 grandchildren and we, too, have been faced with life altering decisions. August 14th my dear younger brother passed away from a short illness. It was so hard to have a younger sibling pass, but I would find your emails and cute postings lift me. I will never meet you and you will never know me, but I am so very thankful for the way you have shared your faith, creativity, and honesty in your blogs. Love you much!!

  2. Thank you, Julie for your heart for happy homes and sharing Jesus’ love and grace. You make my heart smile. I love you, Ryan, Noah and Jet and thank God for your ministry among us at Rio and through your writing. God bless your happy home…much love, Marla

  3. You are the one that continues to inspire us, your thoughts have been so helpful in attempting to guide others through difficult times…..so happy that your family has shined through the worst of times!

  4. I have just found your blog and I love it! Thank you for your craftiness, your love for Jesus and your ability to combine it all with an openness to share with others so that we too, can be happier home fairies for our families. Blessings to you and your family xoxo

  5. Julie it is you who have blessed each and every one of us. Your openness to the lessons you have learned, your clarity in sharing your teachings from our great God while you were going through the most trying of experiences sends a ripple of Hope and Love to those who share in your journey. You have taught us all what the true meaning of Intimacy is. Thank you Julie for allowing us to be witnesses in the Grace and Power of our Great God. Let me tell you people that I have the pleasure of going to church with the Happy Family and they are the rarest of followers of Christ, they walk the walk, they talk the talk and yes, Julie has a sparkle in her eyes and smile that can light up a stadium in the dark. I am Blessed. Jane

  6. I so thank God for you Julie, you have served as a inspiration to many and still do! Love you sweet friend and all the “Happys” at your house too! Be blessed as we now move into the Advent/Christmas season and know my prayers continue for each of you! BTW I will be a Happy Grandma again, Dec.3rd! 4th time of “happy tears”! oxox
