for unto us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace

Isa 9:6

Celebrating 25 years of Marriage!!


Happy Anniversary to me and my PC (Prince Charming) and yes I’m a Princess! We have traveled the states together, built a family together, buried a daughter together (leukemia/heart transplant-perhaps I will tell about on her birthday this week), made it through high school together TWICE! Once for us and then for each of our children. We homeschooled together, cried together, made mistakes together, celebrated together, boy do we laugh a lot!!!! We love, we take turns making the plans for our anniversary celebrations and birthdays to which are both in June. It has been a wonderful life and extraordinary marriage with mountaintop highs and valley lows. The valley lows are ok because when you are in the valley, you can always look up and see the mountain and remember the good times and focus on the sustainer and creator of life and the present circumstances.

Here is a snippet of our marriage




Merry Christmas!!!

It has been a long month! But as usual, we are survivors!! While recovering from the Virginia-ick (happens every Fall. Sinus’ and allergies!), I still managed to get Christmas orders made and shipped or delivered and start a new job. Today, I am off work. Tried to sleep in but it did not work. Awoke at 5am 😳. Anyway, the house is still quiet. My daughter and pastry chef arrived home safe and sound. My son and hubby have to work today and I’m thankful they are gainfully employed. So much goodness to reflect on this season. It can be so easy to get distracted by current events and see all the bad stuff going on in and around the world. My heart breaks for all these calamities and all who are affected by them. And at the end of the day, I now my head and whisper to God, Lord I’m thankful.

Some things we created to help others celebrate in their own way..
