A couple weeks ago, we were blessed by this sweet package that came from our dear friend, Mrs.Stephanie!
There was lovelies inside...and it was a sweet blessing (and surprise!) to receive!
Thank you so much...we are enjoying using all the goodies! :)
In fact....we made them our table topper for this season!
As we come into this season....may we take time to reflect on the true meaning and reason for this wonderful celebration!

Merry Christmas from our home to yours!
What is your favorite Christmas song?
Enjoy this wonderful season~

just because

Just because life is short....and death is certain... I am surprising my dear Mom with this
post simply to say  
"I love you and thank you for your wonderful Godly example....your willingness to give a hug, share a smile or say a prayer...YOU. bless. me."
What will you do today....
{just because}?
Remember..."yesterdays gone, and tomorrow may never come, but we have
//this moment// today"!
cherish the moment~

Let me tell you somethin'...

  We miss you & think of you so much
So many things have happened in the last two years that we would love to tell you...

I know that your passing has taught all of us so much,
not to put off things,
enjoy the camping trips (no matter) smile,
enjoy the fishing & stories,
Enjoy having Lo agree with me on NO "bate in the coolers", Hum
I know you'd laugh,
do not pet dogs running around the camp areas (ha),
enjoy the hunting,
hug some one even if "you will see them later",
enjoy the zoo differently,
listen to the story again,
hug a lil-tighter,
look at the fish again,
eat the 'catch'....
finish quilts,
make fried tater's,
We are so enjoying and laughing at Jo in her "Bob ways",
enjoy Dad, Grandpa every time we can...
enjoy Rob singing Elvis a lil-more -smile,
and laugh at the many times we hear Rog 'tell it again'!
You know ever time we hear him say "let me tell you something"
Bob, we think of you and just days ago he got his first deer in years and we know how you & he would re-live that story time-n-time again at the June camp out!
We love & miss you and are thankful for the hugs, stories, love & memories!
To me you are always "Big Bob"!
Thank you for the memories.....
For the time we "had"..... we are thankful!
In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus for you.
~ 1Thessalonians 5:18

::Thankful Challenge::

With this week being 'Thanksgiving' we would like you to join us in doing a thankful challenge!
We have 5 days....everyday (we are going to write them down)
think of 10 new things you are thankful for...
each day bringing a new 10 to the list, that's a total of 50 blessings!

"Enter his gates with
{t h a n k s g i v i n g}, and into his courts with praise:
be {t h a n k f u l} unto him and bless his name."
~Psalm 100:4~

The Lord has been SO good to us and given us SO many blessings...
lets "count are many blessings name them one by one!"

Blessings to everyone on this lovely Sunday~
Maggie for the family
