Seventeen blessings that make growing older worth the effort!!...and 2 more blessings since this picture was taken!

Wouldn't it be wonderful if your family were the envy of all your neighborhood? Not because your family had the biggest house, the fanciest car or the very best interior decorator.

The reason isn't that you are the parents of the most beautiful children, you have a "to die for spouse" and you command a 6 figure income.

The fact of the matter is, you don't own a fancy house, your car is a CarMax reject, and your interior decorator is the local Goodwill Store.

Is all of that important? No! What is important is that your family is "The Happiest Family on the Block"!

I will be sharing our secrets that worked with our 6 children, 6 sons and daughters-in-laws and 19 grandchildren! I will share secrets and ideas that we did do and wished we hadn't, things we didn't do, but wished we had, AND things we did do and are glad we got something right!! Hindsight is 20/20 you know!

The "happy family" revolves around:


Raising children





Hobbies- cooking, sewing, crafts, decorating

Making money


Being friends with your grown up children

Being the best grandparents you can be

Etc, etc, etc

Grab a cup of coffee, sit down, relax and let's visit!

What a cutie. Thanks for the advice about helping a kiddo with fear. We sat down with his Bible and concordance and looked up as many verses on fear as we could and it does seem to help. We just do it again if he becomes afraid again. I will have to put the verse you suggested in the pool too. Thanks for following:)

Hi! Just visiting you back from FF! I'm looking forward to learning some of your secrets to having a happy family. As I type, my 8 month old daughter is screaming her head off because she doesn't want to take a nap :)

Have a blessed weekend!
