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!

Musings of a grandson

From my daughter, Jillian Woods. A conversation between her and her 8 year old.

"Bad news tonight! Lee and Beau and I were talking about heaven and who we will see there and Beau sadly said, "...and Grandma Corle."
Me- "You mean my mom?"
Beau- "Yeah...she's only got a few years left in her."

Wow!! What a reality check!! I love you, Beau Woods!

This made me chuckle. My kids are 7 and 5 and have a way of coming out with things that would make your hair curl - especially when there are visitors around! Found you via #WelcomeToTheWeekend
