After many years of praying
Such a delight
such a joy
such a challenge.
You can see the age spread in my children here.
Having a toddler in the house with teenagers
is a time I will never forget.
She is her Daddy's girl and her sister's friend.
competitive, athletic and plays the piano beautifully.
She's a tomboy.
She can throw a football and use the drill.
She's a girl.
She loves chocolate and hates spiders.
She makes us laugh.
She determined to conquer the Rubik's cube
and then went on to th 4x4 and then 5x5.
Did you know there were such things?
She's my keep-me-on-my-toes girl.
My keep-me-young girl.
She's my Girl.

Old Time is still a-flying:
And this same flower that smiles to-day
To-morrow will be dying.
The glorious lamp of heaven, the sun,
The higher he's a-getting,
The sooner will his race be run,
And nearer he's to setting.
Glorious birthday roses from my sweetheart.
We are off for a weekend of REST.

My daughter was talking on her cell phone to her boyfriend when there was a lot of noise. the phone went dead and then no answer. "Mom I think Tyler was in a wreck...what do I do?"

It's like there is an excitement building...
We celebrated our family's fall birthdays last Sunday.
This is one of my treasures from Farm Chicks.
I bought it from Amy and Kris At the Country Store.
(Amy's blog is Amy's Vintage Cottage-check out her wonderful whites)
They had a fabulous booth...one of my favortist favorites.
The menu request was *Olive Garden* style.
Miss G made us chicken alfredo fetticini
fresh sourdough bread.
But this is the *killer*.
It is supposed to rain all day
so maybe I'll get caught up on my blogging.
I'm looking forward to a cup of tea and visiting all of the cozy whites out there.

2. I've lived in a 60-mile radius all of my life...I'm a country girl...
I love to go to the city to shop (thrift) but take me home to my quiet.
I really am just a homebody.
3. I've been a homeschooling mom for 23 years...doesn't that sound like a career?
I gave up my nursing license way back in 1986 to stay home with my children.
A decision I have not regretted for even 1 minute.
Homeschooling has brought blessing
beyond measure and imagination
to our family.
I do think a *gold watch* is in order at retirement, though!
My youngest is in the 7th grade...so 5 years to go.
4. My tongue is too sharp and gets me trouble. I don't want it to be.
God is teaching me...through the lessons of life...ouch!
More leaning to walk in grace.
5. I love...chocolate, hamburgers and french fries,
and about anything my Miss G bakes for me.
See # 10. It doesn't work for this...just keeps it somewhat in check.
6. I hate change.
Change of any kind. Change of jobs. Change of relationships
and please don't change the spagetti sauce recipe.
7. I love a two-year old's hand in mine. I love hearing *thank-you*, grandma.
I love being a mom. And I love old pick-up trucks.
I love to decorate.
and over the top.
"How am Isupposed to relax when I know this couch
would look so much better in the opposite corner!"
8. I hate the empty-nesting process.
I hate flippancy about having babies..
I hate wishy-washy-ness and I hate hot flashes.
9. I am for the most part a pessimist.
The rain on your parade. The *let's be real* part of the family.
Except for Miss Gracie's...then all I see is potential.
Oh, and when I see an old house that needs to be *rescued*.
10. I don't like to exercise but I do it anyway...to help with #9.
Endorphins are my friend.
But I can't go look at furniture within 2 hours of exercising...
because then I can fix anything!
See ya'll tomorrow for White Wednesday...
There you have it. More than you really wanted to know.
But they do help us to know each other a little better.
If you'd like to play along, leave me a comment...
and I'll come on over to your place to get to know you better.

my mind and in my heart.
A wife of noble character, who can find?
She is worth more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
