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.
I am a very happy wife of 32 years. A mother to three awesome sons and one beautiful daughter. I have homeschooled for 24+ years. I have a deep love for all things old. People, art, material things, lost crafts. I am a crazy lover of The Lord, always seeking to draw closer to Him.
My blog title came from my husband who started calling me Sunshine the day we met. Over the years the name was shortened to Shine and sometimes I wonder if he really even knows my given name!!! I am not an eloquent writer, not gifted that way as so many bloggers are....I just have a heart to share things with my friends and family that are far away yet so very dear to my heart<3.
