His Mercy

In this life we can not always do great things. But we can do small things with great love.." :) Mother Teresa

Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Her Perfect Nose.....

Is now pierced! I watched it happen! Let's just say she is much braver than I am! And, it does look pretty cute. :)

In Mid December, 3 out of 4 of us wound up with Covid 19. Thankfully we have a very good doctor who stuck with us on the phone and in video call to help us through it. I wound up having it the worst, and this week was my first real week back to work with Mike, and work is just out the back door! Our symptoms varied, but for all of us we lost taste and smell. From there, headaches and cold symptoms. Then for me, severe body aches, shortness of breath, oxygen levels dropped, brain fog, ( I still don't remember much about Christmas) fever, severe chills, nausea, dizziness, and just feeling AWFUL. We were given Ivermectin, steroids and antibiotics. Taste and smell have not fully returned but if I concentrate, I can get a whiff of something. I'm so thankful that we all recouperated. It could have not been so, as for many in our country who did not live. I'm praying that if you are reading this, you and your family stay well!

AND We Are .....

It has happened! Erika and Sarah are now sharing an apartment together with a dear childhood friend. Going into those empty rooms was so weird! So much has happened in this home together with the children! But it is a GOOD STEP. They are both responsible, wonderful young adults and this house holds memories of them that I will cherish forever! They aren't very far away and I know we will visit often. In fact, they have already been back. :) What a blessing being at this stage in life, watching your children bear the fruit of love. I'm proud of each one of them. And now, I turn to writing and helping Mike fully with the business. And of course! GRANDKIDS.... :)

You Are Still Holy
