It has been one of those weeks as a mother. My heart is saddened at the choices my children have made and yet where can a mother turn for solace and peace? No one knows my children quite the way that I do. No one else knows of our struggles, our challenges and the “cha-cha”… Read More Post #39 – As the thunder rolls in . . .
GingerSnap has been working on a project lately for Young Women’s and asked me to help her with it. Sadly she had to send me an email request to help her because I kept forgetting to do it. I guess being a homeschool mom has its limits, like being asked by your kids constantly for… Read More Post #38 – My First Story of Faith

He was able to take these shots on his way to Utah, to surprise his parents for… Read More Post #34 – SURPRISE! for 50 years of Marriage

We are literally having to walk with the only sight we have, and that is not sight but the… Read More Post #32 – Bubble Baths and Letting Go!
