No titles. I don't want them anymore.
Don't ask me why, because I don't really know.

Did you know I used to make wishes at 11:11? I used to inform people whenever it was 11:11 and I was talking to someone. I don't do that anymore. One time I looked at the clock and it was 11:11 and I decided not to make a wish. Because I just didn't want to do it anymore. So, now I don't.

This is sort of irrelevant, but I don't care about that either.

There's no logic in this post, so there's no need to tell me that. I was just thinking and I saw that quote in the last pictures and it says; "I hope you remember me with flowers in my hair and laughter in my lungs." I think that's a beautiful quote. Because I imagine a care-free girl always smiling and enjoying life whether she's had a bad day or not. And I think that's a nice thought. To be able to have people remember you as the girl with flowers in her hair and laughter in her lungs. As the one who you could always count on to cheer you up. The one who kept her head high even when the waters are rough. I'm not saying the person has to fake a smile and pretend to love life even when she's sad. I'm not saying the person isn't allowed to be sad. I'm just saying the person doesn't let sadness define her. There's a difference. She doesn't let it hold her back from loving the beauty in life. I hope I'm able to portray that girl. I hope that I can be a girl that someone remembers as always joyful and happy. Not bitter about life. Because there's no room really for bitterness towards life and even if there was room, there isn't a purpose for it. It doesn't change anything. And we're blessed enough just being here. Getting to witness the sun come up each day to brighten the world, getting to be loved and have the opportunity to spread it from your fingertips. Getting a chance to paint the world with your thoughts, your words, your actions. Yeah, I hope you remember me with flowers in my hair and laughter in my lungs and no bitter tastes found on my tongue.
God is good, isn't He?
No need to answer that; I already know the answer.
He is.
Oh yes, He is.


  1. <3 yes, He is. ^_^ <3 This is lovely. I hope I'm able to portray that girl, as well!

  2. You should really consider writing some sort of inspiration book, even if its just a cute little coffee table book, it'd be awesome. <3

  3. i love all of these quotes, so inspirational! like said in a comment above.. i want a coffee table book! one i could look at every morning to gain some inspiration for my whole day!

  4. I agree with Noni. You really do have a way with putting words together, Sophie. They're the kind people put on pictures. :)

    God is good. Always.

  5. i just learned a new word today, thanks to you :)

  6. This is beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.

  7. Oh yes, He is! :)

    For all my life I have wished to be remembered as that type of girl. Except maybe for my brief angsty teenage period of life. But not its all I dream of! Have you read the book "Captivating" by Jon & Staci Eldridge? It is so good and talks about being a real woman and how that affects other people. I thought of it because a real woman who is happy with herself and is madly in love with God is sort of that flower girl you talked about in your post. She brings happiness into the room every time and changes people's attitudes just by being herself. I so long for that myself.

    1. No, I haven't... but it does sound good. :) I am kinda talking about it that way. Because its alright to be sad, but like I said, you should always still strive to find joy and comfort even in the sad times and not let sad define you. And the joy and comfort can be found in God and His Word. :)

  8. Serendipity. One of my favorite words.
    Though, I did't know it existed until I saw it in one of Michelle's posts.
    I getcha, in fact, my sister and I still take note of "magic days"
    Like 12/1/13 could be :12+1=13! =D and I'd always try to watch my watch when 12:12 and 12 seconds was coming up. or 8:08 08.
    It's so good to have one of your inspiring posts again!


  9. "There is beauty in simplicity." That's like my life's motto ;D


  10. I love this so much, I really do hope people remember me with flowers in my hair and laughter in my lungs, because my hardships have only made me stronger, and helped me to appreciate just how beautiful and lovely life can be.
