The Best and Easiest Cherry Limeade Drink You”ll Ever Make!

This Cherry Limeade drink has been a family favorite for years!

Cherry + Lime is the best combo!

In fact, most Sundays we make this tasty drink as part of our family dinner.

The flavoring isn’t too sour, but just enough to make it taste great.

And as always, this drink is naturally gluten-free.

With summer around the corner I think you’ll enjoy making this drink to sip on through the day.

Enjoy!

Isn’t This The Truth About Mamas?

When I saw this quote I laughed because I could relate so well to it.

All of my children tend to wake up earlier than I would like….welcome to motherhood right?!

Anyway, I can always tell by their footsteps who is coming into my room.

My oldest son is quite loud and quite quick, my middle daughter is light on her feet and very soft, and my youngest daughter sounds like thunder coming down the hall ha!

I love that their little footsteps represent their personalities so well.

I know I miss out on a lot of sleep with these cuties, however, I know one day I will miss the pitter patter of little feet sneaking into my bedroom, so I will try to soak it in while I can.

When People Are Nice–It’s Life-Changing…

This may be a bold statement….to say that something is life-changing, but I can tell you it’s true.

I had a moment to reflect on this today, at the post office of all places.

Now understand, I have never been treated rudely or poorly at the post office. However, usually things are rushed and the workers are trying to hurry to get to the next customer and it’s just a quick transaction and nothing more.

However, today was different.

I was the only person in line, and perhaps that helped.

But I must say, it was so refreshing to have a light—nice conversation with the worker helping me at the post office.

He told me he hoped I was having a good day, and then we talked about the weather—and how the massive snowstorm had effected the postal service trucks from getting places on time.

We were cheerful and nice to one another.

It was simple and easy.

And it made me think…wouldn’t being “nice” be life-changing to the world?

I myself, as we all do, have gone through some challenging times… and when people are rude and inconsiderate, it tends to cut deeper when life is already hard.

However, on the flip side… when ours days have been tough and hard, having someone be NICE is so uplifting and rewarding.

And most the time, it’s not hard to be nice.

It’s quite easy to talk kindly and considerate to others.

Yes, I truly believe, that being “nice” can be life-changing.

You never know how one simple act of kindess can change the course of a human life.

So why not try and be as kind, considerate, and as nice as possible?
