Why am I gone so much this time?

Here Comes Peter Cottontail...
Happy Birthday Pip Squeak!

Ever used Facebook Messenger to have a friend in Kentucky order food for your party while you are in Canada???
Yep - been there, done that.

A Beautiful Union...

I found myself at the wedding of two dear friends today...

It made me think...
It made me feel...
Yes, I cried...
I don't think there was dry eye in the sanctuary.

It made me happy that a wedding 20 some years in the making was finally happening...
And how I wish that their legal wedding could have been the same day as their wedding celebration.

Baby Steps...

My Pip Squeak...

My heart is smiling and crying at the same time...
My Pip Squeak is now a year old!

Happy Birthday Buddy - you and your big brother make my life complete!

Taking That Step...

I saw a post recently, yes I shared it, that said:
"Sometimes God closes doors because it's time to move forward.  He knows you won't move unless your circumstances force you.  Trust Him!"
And, I believe that messages always arrive in threes.

So, after getting slapped in the face last week three times, I did some hard thinking...
I did some brainstorming with my two best friends...
I did some praying in church...

I feel like I am now facing the right direction...Now to take that first step.

It is time to focus on the positive of those steps and not on what I am leaving behind.

Happy Easter - 2015

We celebrated Easter a day early this year...
That's what happens when your children become adults and have other families to spend time with.

As long as we get to spend time with them, doesn't bother me to go a day early!

Zilla and PipSqueak searched for eggs and got some furry pillows/stuffed animals to love on and the adults got baskets too (I only got a picture of three of them... Two had already gone home before I thought to take a picture).
Yeah - I got a basket this year...One that I didn't make!
Our baskets this year were ice cream bowls. :)

Egypt was in town with her girls and we headed up to the Butterfly exhibit at Krohl Conservatory. Had an amazing time catching butterflies and taking pictures!
