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!

Have you ever run across someone who personifies  the definition of the word "saint"? I have been following a blog in the last few months, written by a young woman who is that person. She has all the odds stacked against her and yet she radiates joy, love, peace, faith and tranquility is the middle of the most devastating circumstances imaginable. She is dying of cancer. She is a wife, a mother of 4 little ones and above all, she is a follower of Jesus Christ! This is one of the most uplifting, soul searching, heartbreaking blogs you will ever read.. I really believe her faith would move mountains!  If you have time, spend a few moments reading what she has to share.
