About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Living the Dream

A friend told me years ago that I was living "the dream".
I do believe she's right.

      My family is not perfect.
    But together we are pretty amazing.
    We make each other laugh.

     My pretty close to perfect husband spoils us.
   We kind of like that.
   A lot.

   My girls still pose for pictures.
   Some like it more than others.

          We like each other.
   Most of the time.
   No one gets upset when they don't win.
   Unless the ball keeps popping out of the   hole.
   On Mother's Day.

              We don't mind the heat.
    Especially when we have our own personal "fanner".:)

   Isn't she cute?

   We have been so very, very blessed.
   God is so good.
   My whole family knows this.
   I am so thankful to know that we will spend eternity together.

         Even when times are difficult we know that we are there for each other.
   We all need our own cheering section.

   I pray that you have your own shelter in a  storm.
   I pray that you are living the dream on earth, too, and that you have the comfort of knowing what your future holds with the Lord.
   If you're not sure, I would love to talk with you about it.  Heaven wouldn't be the same without you.   (toosillysisters@cox.net)

       Enjoy your days on earth- even when they are trying.
   Laugh all you can.  
   Try to focus on the positive and I will do the same.

             Thank you, my dear family, for loving me.
    I am less than perfect and downright crabby quite often.
    I do not deserve all the happiness you give me but I LOVE it.  And I love you all more and more.

One word ~ PERFECT! You can't take the cars, houses, material things with you when you leave this earth, but you will have something far more precious with you forever and that's your family. You are pretty lucky to have your family and they are really blessed to have you.
