|Forgive my peace sign...for some reason, I keep throwing 'em out when my picture is being taken. I'm reverting to my 16 year old self. I do that a lot...I love this merciful, committed, loving man. He is my best friend!|
|This pic was actually taken by Nicki's hubby, Greg. Nicki is the adorable girl with the precious little chicky on her shoulders. Greg had a camera on his head.....his pix of that day are pretty cool!|
|not my favorite pic but you can see all of us in our colored galore....|
|never a dull moment with this guy around...|
|This may be my new fave pic of my hubs and I.|
|This was the pic taken after the one above. David was acting like he was drinking from the canal...such a FUNNY GUY I have!|
|Beck's tribute to Sully...|
|Ethan & Mel|
|I think Mel may be taller than you, Beck. I dunno...just sayin'.|
|Three of my all time favorite guys!|
|Beautiful Melanie...I love this caring, tender girl. If you call her friend, you are blessed. I call her daughter, so I am doubly blessed.|
|we spotted Jamie!|
|David is a colorful little leprechaun. hee hee|
|Out of all of those thousands of people, I found my friend, Melanie E....we were in MOPS together so many years ago.|
|Jamie and Beck|
All credit to Jamie Reese, pictured above with my sister...She was with us, taking all of these pix above (mostly), and she got hit with color and so did her camera. Thank you, my dear friend, for joining us that day! Love you!
I have many thoughts rolling around in my noggin tonight but will spare you the gory details on my blog. I will rest in the fact that GOD IS IN CONTROL and seriously, if He brings you to it, He will bring you thru it...I have learned that one true thing. He is the only sure, good, true, trustworthy thing on this life. People will let you down, bank accounts will get depleted, friends will ditch you, the wrong person will get elected, or that person will cut you off in traffic...
It's all good.....
take a deep breath.
there ya go....
in thru your nose.....
out thru your mouth.
(I'm telling myself this, k? it wouldn't hurt if you gave it the ol' college try too!)
Life is short and very precious...
Cherish the moments that the Lord gives you...
time to get back to organizing and ordering school books...(which is a nostalgia all it's own as I embark on the ONLY year I will home educate all five of my living children at once..unless Will takes a bit longer, which I'm perfectly fine with btw)
