So Many Blessings

Our gorgeous morning quickly became a cloudy, drizzly day yesterday and the rainy weather will continue well into the weekend, but somehow it doesn’t really matter to us. We are very thankful for all our blessings: God, family, peaceful home, wonderful neighbors and church communities. The list goes on and on and we try neverContinue reading “So Many Blessings”

Never Too Old To Learn New Tricks

This photo is a reminder of what I can do when I put my mind, and hands, to it. All of my 4 ounce bobbins ready to ply. I really enjoyed that summer. I can do it again as long as I take care of myself and stay on top of things. Age really isContinue reading “Never Too Old To Learn New Tricks”

Hava and Magen have settled in, although they wake in the middle of the night, as does baby Gabriel when he hearsContinue reading “Grateful For Our Blessings”

It’s so easy to whine and complain about the small stuff and to think that the big stuff is the endContinue reading “Good Friday”
