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!

Hello Everyone!

I know you all thought I had fallen off the face of the earth!! I didn't... I really didn't! I have just been orbiting the earth in high speed the last several months... or so it seems.
I am committed to blogging again.... between bookselling, my Etsy store, my grandchildren, coaching laboring moms, trips to Texas to see my grandchildren, etc, etc I AM going to try to be a consistant blogger again.
You all tell me what you want to hear. Is it raising children, birthing children, living with teenagers, finances, making money? I have done it all at one time or another. Most everything I did imperfectly, ask my husband and children, they will tell you! I did learn from my mistakes, most of the time... Have you heard the old expression; "A wise man learns form his mistakes, but a wiser man learns from other's mistakes." Learn from my mistakes so you don't have to make them yourself!
There are so many things I want to share with you all that I don't know where to start. Let me sleep on it and I will get back to you tomorrow.
