 Happy Sunday Dear Friends.   

I'm not complaining......but just wanted to say that I have been working on my Blog for hours today!!!!   Not sure if any of the rest of you have had issues with the size of photo that appears in your header, but I have had many issues.  

I did the same thing that I have been doing for 11 years, and my header photo was only the size of a 3 X 3 photo.

I'm not even sure what I did to finally correct it, so guess what?  The picture that is up there now, of my front door star, may be there for the entire month of July.   

                                     * * * *

I have a couple of Prayer request.   My very dear friend, Marsha, begins radiation this week for breast cancer.   She is doing well from the Lumpectomy, but she now faces four weeks of radiation.   Please keep her in your prayers.    

And, I would covet your prayers for ME, as I am having a heart Cath done this coming Wednesday morning.  I am a little nervous, but I know God is in Control.

Thank you all for your advance!

Part of our family is scheduled to fly out next Saturday to head to Denver, Co.   (My Heart Dr. said it would be fine for me to continue with my trip, as long as everything goes well on Wednesday)

Our youngest daughter (Shanda) and her husband, along with Mylee Jo, are going with us.   Mylee has never flown before, so this should be a great experience.   And, she has never seen Mountains before.   She is going to love this trip!!!!

More to come before Wednesday.....

Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful Father's out there!  My dad is in Heaven and he is so missed.   Today, I celebrate all of the wonderful memories I have of him.  I also celebrate my Husband (Sam) who is the BEST dad to our girls, our grandchildren, and our great grandchildren.  

I also celebrate my Father-in-law.  He is such a kind, gentle man!


Sam and I celebrated our 49th Anniversary this past week.  We had dinner at Kiepersol Winery, and the meal was absolutely wonderful.  I even tried Oysters for the very first time.  

I still can not taste or smell, so I honestly have no idea how they tasted.  

This Bread Pudding was "Over the Moon" good (I think)...  The only thing that I can halfway taste are sweets!!  Isn't that weird? This dessert had a rich caramel sauce with pecans.   Just doesn't get any better than this.  

Yesterday, Sam fried fish, hushpuppies, fries and we had all the works to make for a delicious meal.  The kids were in the pool most of the afternoon.  It is so neat watching them all play games and having a great time!  

This is what is happening in our yard...  The hibiscus are in full bloom and they are quite stunning....

This is my prayer for today.   Not only for myself, but for others as well.

All is quiet here this morning.   Sam is on the lake fishing with his brother and Bella (our dog) is snoring in her little bed.  The TV is on....but the volume is on 12!   Most of the time, when Sam or the kids are here, the TV is blaring on at least a volume of 40.   WAY TOO LOUD for me.

Just a quiet Saturday morning here!  It feels great to just sit here and feel such Peace!

"It isn't enough to talk about peace.  One must believe in it.  And it isn't enough to believe in it.  One must work for it."

-Eleanor Roosevelt

Enjoy this beautiful weekend...

 One of my very favorite scriptures.   Isn't it great to know that the Lord will fight for you....You need only to be still.... 

I am still here....  Just been super busy!  We have had so many family things going on lately.   The month of May was full of events, and so is June.  

We had a Wedding!!!   Yes, Tucker and Emily were married on May 25th.   We traveled to Jamaica!!!  Such a beautiful wedding view!

Our youngest grandson (Trey) graduated High School just 3 days after our return from Jamaica....

This young man is truly Awesome!  I would say this even if he were not our grandson.   Trey is so Kind-hearted and has such great values!!   He is also a very HARD worker and is so dedicated to whatever he is doing.   


Our great granddaughter (Emersyn Kate) turned ONE on the 19th of May...   Oh my goodness... she is such a cutie!!! baby girl, who is now 44 had a Birthday on June 6th.

We had a big swimming party with lots of food and of course cake.   Well...not really cake!  Shanda wanted brownies topped with cookies and cream ice cream and then topped with real whipping cream!   

All of this has been so fun and exciting.......  

The only other event, is SOMEONE backed into my car at the post office last week.  Dented the rear right side.  Now, I have to take my car to Dallas to be worked on and drive a rent car until the repairs are finished.  Dealing with Insurance companies and rental places is not my cup of tea!!   

Hope you all are having a super great start to our Summer months....    



Fall is my Favorite

  Seriously.....Who doesn't LOVE Fall? To Some, the season is called FALL.  To others, it is referred to as Autumn! 🍁 How true this say...
