A cheerful heart is good medicine. Proverbs 17:22

I love this photo of my daughter on a swing. She looks so happy and cheerful. Unfortunately she's not always like this. More often than not Rebekah is a 'glass half empty' kind of kid. When things aren't going her way it would seem the whole world is crumbling down around her.

My aim is to catch her being happy, encourage those cheerful moments and help her experience life in a more positive frame of mind. So I've used the journalling in this layout to give her some 'life advice' about being happy. "Live life as if you are on a swing, flying through the air with nothing holding you back. Free to enjoy the moment ... free to be all that God created you to be."

How does this verse speak to you?
Can't wait to see your layouts for this months challenges.

You are such a caring mum to do this for her.

I too was a "glass half empty" kind of kid.

Keep up the encouragements and affirmation. Do activities with her that she loves. Take her out for a milo and cake at a local cafe etc.

For me I needed all this but my mum was always too busy. I still love my mum to bits and she loves me too. Please don't get me wrong.
