About Me

Hello there, thanks for visiting my blog. So, a bit about me; I'm Natalie and I am a Christian, committed to living by God's Word each and every day. I am a proud mother to three beautiful children and creator of The Accidental Mogul - a blog designed to channel my ambitious juices and unleash the writer within! This blog is a reflection of me, so it contains a little bit of everything. I’ll be documenting my walk with my saviour Jesus Christ, as well as my natural hair journey, I'll be writing thought provoking posts, product reviews, hosting giveaway's and of course offering up a generous dollop of everyday mummy musings. I like to hear uplifting and motivational stories, so I’ll be interviewing inspirational people when I can to encourage and inspire others. Sharing experiences is what makes life beautiful, so let's share.

Friday reflection on Tuesday - week 10

This post was meant for last Friday, but my little boy fell down the stairs and a whole lot of sickness happened so blog posts were far from my mind. Here it is now though.....

It really is the simple things in life which bring the most joy, peace and pleasure.

A perfect example of this happened last Saturday. My mum, along with my nine year old nephew, were giving the children and I a lift home. With the season of goodwill in full swing, the streets have completely lit up with sparkling Christmas lights and festivity as homemakers embrace the spirit of Christmas and embellish their windows with dazzling light shows and shimmering decorations of mesmerising proportions. If you have children you can just imagine how much excitement this brings. On the whole journey home all I heard was:

'Wow'
'Amazing'
'Look at those'
'Aren't they beautiful?'
'Oooo...' and that was mainly me lol.

My nephew and children were in complete awe of all the beautiful colours and sparkles adorning homes throughout each neighbourhood we passed;

'Mummy look'
'Wooo'
'Fantastic'
'So lovely'
'So pretty'

And on and on it went. The sheer wonder and awe filled the entire car and was completely infectious. My mum and I beamed all the way home and I felt ridiculously warm and fuzzy inside. God is so good and I am so thankful for my life and the lives of my children and family. The best things in life really are free.
