Yesterday we found out that a dear family we have known for many years lost their beautiful 19 year old daughter in a tragic car accident Sat. morning. We loved this girl dearly. She grew up with our 20 year old son. They took lots of classes together.......just can't believe it's real. Today I have been so grateful for my children. I'm almost afraid to hold them too tightly, but then I've always known they truly belong to the Lord. He has been so gracious to give us so many years with these beautiful children and I am thankful for each and every day. If you're reading this, please be in prayer for our dear friends.......and don't take one moment of time with your children for granted. They are an absolute gift.

Venturing Out

OK....I have actually been on blogger for a while now. Over a year! Normally I am not a slow learner, but time and other things have kept me from doing very much with my little blogging life. Part of the reason I love blogging I think is for the challenge! I have really had no one to help me. My son helped a little in the beginning, but now he has other things to do, so...I'm on my own.

I put on my big girl pants and started learning for myself!
You've probably noticed if you've been here much that it never looks the same here!
I'm always experimenting and finding new and different things. Now I'm going to be playing with my pictures for a while, so excuse the mess while I make more progress!!
