Last month we acknowledged important women in our lives, focusing on our Mother’s. In the June Thoughts to Inspire we will equally focus our attention on the Father’s in our lives. Our first hero’s, and so without further a-do. Here are a few inspirational quotes to celebrate our Dads.
“You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.” —Psalm 32:7-8
“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”-Proverbs 22:6
“A father’s job isn’t to teach his daughter how to be a lady, it’s to teach her how a lady should be treated.”— Unknown
“But as for you, be strong and do not give up for your work will be rewarded.” 2 Chronicles 15:7
“A father is neither an anchor to hold us back, nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way.” – Unknown
“I will be a father to him, and he’ll be a son to me. When he does wrong, I’ll discipline him in the usual ways, the pitfalls and obstacles of this mortal life. But I’ll never remove my gracious love from him.” —2 Samuel 7:14-15
I hope you have found these quotes inspirational, and that you will spend some time thanking your Fathers and Husbands this Father’s Day, and showing them your appreciation.

I’m April, a wife and mother of two. Since the end of 2010 I have been battling autoimmune diseases: and facing those have left me with limited physical abilities, limited energy, and limited funds; so I created this blog to document my journey : to simplifying my life, hopefully finding tips and tricks and resources to help save me time, money, and energy. I am hoping not only to share my journey, but to inspire others with similar challenges. Personally I think everyone would welcome ways to save time, money, and energy, but to some it is imperative. The content you can expect to see includes life hacks, organizational and time management resources, tips and tricks to saving money, ideas and resources for making money doing simple tasks or passively, and simple inexpensive gift giving ideas. To those of you who may be concerned that this may just be one big pity party, I want to be clear. I have conditions that have altered my abilities, but this is about taking as much control over my life as I possibly can, and to make it a positive experience. I will not however, turn anyone away if they ask about my illnesses specifically. Perhaps they are newly diagnosed, and need some advice that I haven’t shared. I encourage those individuals to contact me any time. I want people to be able to positively bounce ideas off of one another to make it a blog that everyone can benefit from.
