Hello Lovely & Sweet
I have decided,

I will go back to blogging a little more.
So, if you start to wonder where I am,
please think back on this post
See you on

Several weeks ago my First Baby Boy,
had a significant birthday.
He turned 21 years old!
Here he is with Daddy in the hospital,
safe and sound after a very
difficult labor and delivery,
which ended up being a C- Section.
He has been a strong-willed little fighter
from the beginning!
Named by his Poppy,
"The Gusto Kid"
My Boy never just walked-
He ran, and ran, and ran...
A curious and very smart little guy,
He still does...
First Birthday Fun!
First hair cut.
It hurt my heart so much
to cut off his little baby curls in the back. :(
As little boys will do.
I love this Amazing Young Man so much!
So, here is my moment to talk about
my child, as only a Mommy can.
Yep, this is my day that I am going to go on and on...
My First Boy is-
(I LOVE that!)
Loves his brothers so much,
A loving Son
Boyfriend to Jessica :)
He always thinks out of the box,
Enthusiastic about things he loves,
He is kind,
He is a Blessing to our family!!!
I Love You Hoon!!!
My greatest hope, desire and prayer,
for all three of my boys,
is not wealth or fame,
but that they
Love & Follow The Lord.

in the way you should go.
I will guild you with My eye."

"If you aspire to be a person of consolation,
if you want to share
the priestly gift of sympathy,
if you desire to go beyond
giving commonplace comfort
to a heart that is tempted,
and if you long to go through
the daily exchanges of life with
the kind of tact that never inflicts pain,
then you must be prepared
to pay the price for a costly education-
for like Christ,
you must suffer."
Frederick William Robertson
We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God.
This is from a devotional called,
that a dear friend just sent to me
because our family is going through
some hard physical challenges.
Thank you Nancy.
It is the small, personal acts of kindness
that warm my heart!

perusing the on-line fabric stores,
I came across a sale.
So, I put a couple of items in my cart.
It was a better deal to buy a certain amount-
you know that Free Shipping amount?
Fabric is on its way!
Oh, the Thrill when it arrives!!!
I really do believe two things-
1. Presentation matters
2. It's the little things that matter,
like a sweet Thank you.
The fabric is
Meadowsweet Designer Surprise
Amy Butler's Daisy Chain
Next are a couple of things
that I picked up when I was visiting my Sis.
She has so many cute, little, amazing shops
in her little town.
This is some wonderful vintage fabric
that I had bought before and was almost out of.
I LOVE IT!!!
I was so happy to find some more.
In the same shop were
these vintage pom-poms and fringe.
And this little 70's beauty
is a big round table cloth.
How cute will that be outside?
Make sure that you hop around
to all of the wonderful Blogs that are part of
Another Pretty that is worth taking a look at is
She writes about a beautiful
experience that happen to her.
It just touched my heart.

Some of the most amazing women in my life!
Read about them Here
From right to left:

Vows & Promises
To Love and Cherish
To Leave & Cleave
Our Wonderful Wedding Party
Jer and I
Husband & Wife
Jerry is in there somewhere...
Twenty-six years ago today
two very young kids got married.
Those young kids,
who thought that they were Very grow-up,
were Big Jer and I.
We were 21 and 22.
Some would say that that is not so young...
And, now that I have a 21 year old
I really know how young that is.
We stood before friends, family
and most importantly, before God.
and vowed to
Love and Honor
We promised to be married until
Do 21 year old "Kids" really understand
"Until death do us part."
Well, through all of these years together,
all of our big and small events,
all of our unbelievable joys
and some heartbreaking trials,
By The Grace Of God,
stood the test of time.
We do not take any of these years for granted.
We are thankful, every day,
for August 11, 1984 until today.
We are even thankful for those heartbreaks,
because through adversity
strength is truly born.
Thank you for our life together!
I love you more now than I ever have before.
through the last couple of hard years,
a steady and compassionate
He has thought of me above himself
during several trials this year.
Trials that I could have easily drown in
if he had not been holding me up.
That is True Love.
At 21 you think that you understand love-
I say Ha Ha.
True, long-lasting enduring love takes
Thank you for all of this
Life is very good with You!
I Love You,
