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:
Hobbies- cooking, sewing, crafts, decorating
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!
We all know what TGIF means, don't we? Thank Goodness It's Friday! That is so true, and my husband can really relate to that one.... but I found a better meaning that I would like to share with all my friends! I saw this expression at a very dear friend's house and I might be posting this every Friday for a while.
Thank God I'm Forgiven!
Isn't that wonderful? We are forgiven! Praise God!!
I am a happy wife, mom and grandmother. I have a wonderful husband, 6 GREAT children, and 15(with 1 more on the way) BEAUTIFUL grandchildren. I am a birth doula, a postpartum doula, I have a store on Etsy and I also sell books online. I love my family, my friends and my life. Above all, I love my Lord. He is the one who has made my life beautiful and for that I am so thankful!!!
