Made in Heaven

by Kari Diane Pike

A friend on Facebook posted this meme:

On those days when you don't feel like a queen and you don't feel like a masterpiece, just remember...He's not quite finished making you yet. ~Brad Wilcox

Some days I do feel like a queen - like when my seventeen-year-old son takes me on a date and treats me to my favorite Frost dark chocolate gelato. Or when I see my grandchildren's eyes light up when I walk into their home. Other days, I feel like the hairball my cat threw up on my new comforter. The day I read that quote was one of those days. 

But reading Brother Wilcox's words brought a picture to my mind. Do you remember how in Toy Story, Andy wrote his name on the bottom of Woody's boot? That quote brought this picture to my mind:

And you know what? I feel like a queen again. 
Life is magnificent!



  1. Short, sweet and perfect!! Thanks for this post, Kari!

  2. Lately I've been having the hairball days lol let's hope the queen days are in the very near future.

  3. Mmm...I'm loving that hairball simile...but it's feeling a little too real for comfort. Thanks for the inspiring message though. Of course you're absolutely right :)
