Let the Journey Begin
Although my journey began when I was born I feel as though it REALLY began when I started having children. It wasn’t until then that I realized how beautiful life is through the eyes of a child.
Everything has color
emotions are expressed without hesitation of offending anyone (I love that)…hahah
Today I spontaneously packed a picnic lunch and took the kids to a little historical site just down the road from where we live. It has a beautiful creek running through it and some nice picnic tables.
The train is close by, you can hear it go rumbling past but can’t see it because of the trees.
IT WAS ABSOULUTLY BEAUTIFUL and PEACEFUL. We will be going back with our swimmy shoes on and a blanket for Mom to rest on!!
My cousin lives in this cute little town in NY and over the week end we all made a trip up to see her and her beautiful house and family!
TRULY it was a beautiful little house full of color and by the pictures below I am not sure who has the handsomest/gorgeous/most beautiful family? (Sarah you can not answer this question as I am sure you will say it is yours and I will say NO, it is mine…hahaha)
My cousin Sarah and I
Our little girls…Just adorable plain adorable!
Our little handsome/sure to be heartbreaker boys.
And yes, my oldest who is turning out to be quit a lady. She got her glasses about a week ago and is a little nervous about what people will say.
I am soooooo proud of her.
She makes her own bed and for the most part enjoys to do so WOW!! I don’t remember ever making my own bed while growing up?? maybe that is why I often forget to do this chore??
but there is hope
because if I forget to make my bed one of my kids is sure to surprise me and do it for me.Isn’t that awesome? I just need to get them to enjoy many, many other household chores so that I can relax,read, and work on my hobbies…hahaha How does that sound for a good Mom?
today I read:
PAIN IS INEVITABLE, BUT MISERY IS OPTIONAL
Today my thoughts:
are with the Mast family who are dear friends of ours and lost their Dad this week. It was not unexpected, he was up in age and had health trouble yet he was somebody’s Dad and Dad’s play a huge role in the life of their children. I am sorry for your loss and pray God’s STRENGTH be yours in the days ahead!
