Hope for You!




I talked this Summer about my friend that had her first baby at 44. Lisa and Abby Kate came to see us one day this week. We love Abby Kate. She LOVES my girls. She is such a smiley baby, but everytime the camera would flash, she would stop smiling.
I hope Lisa can be an encouragement to those of you who want a family so bad, but have not met Mr. Right yet. Lisa got married when she was 42. You do have hope and a LOT to look forward to!!!!!

I bet she is an amazing mom...
You appreciate things when you wait for them instead of taking them for granted...

God's timing is so perfect! Although... in my earthly sense I look at your friend and think "she's gorgeous! why was she single so long" ... but I know the truth is that God had this season ordained for her long before she came to be... and I know that some of us marry young (and subsequently go thru divorce and single parenting) because we don't wait for God's season of time for us. My young nieces ask me if I will ever get married again and I answer, "only if it's God's choice for me". But my honest heart answer is that this is a different season of time for me, too, and He planned for me to be single to be used just for such a time as this. There is always hope but sometimes we need to move to the answer HE has for us. *hugs*

Complicated

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chu

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
