• Loving life

    I was thinking about how serious my blogs are most of the time.  I was wishing I was wittier and more light-hearted.  In reality,  I love to laugh.  I love to spend time making up musicals with my kids, they sing about everything even toast.  I love the life that I am blessed to be able to live.  So today I will post about what I’m grateful for and add a couple silly pictures just for fun.

    I love my husband with my whole heart.  I truly am blessed to be able to go through everything with him.  He makes the bad times easier to handle.  His is the witty one.  He is the one who makes me laugh all the time.  His one liners crack me up.  We often joke about his comedy routine that he will do when he retires.  It’s funny to me because most people think he is so serious.  The Dan I know and love is humor and love and affection.  I’m a blessed girl.

    You all know how I feel about those kids of mine.  I love home-schooling them because I get to spend so much time with them.  I love that I can look at their face and instantly know how they are feeling.  I love that we talk about everything and I do mean everything.  I know they don’t tell me every thought they have.  I know that sometimes it takes them time to come to me, but I also know they will come to me in their own time.  I know that they know no matter what I will love them.  I know that they are secure in their importance in my life.  I know that they know when they walk in a room it brightens my day.  I love that my opinion matters to them.  I love to hear them quote the quotes I love.  Gracie’s Code 1090 was proof of that.

    I’m blessed with a wonderful extended family.  My mom and my mother-in-law are two of my best friends.  I have grandparents that are still around.  In fact, they celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary yesterday, that deserves a shout out for sure!  Brothers and sister-in-laws and nieces and nephews.  Family is wonderful!  I love Facebook because you get to see into the lives of people you aren’t lucky enough to visit with very often.  Life is good!

    Happy Friday everyone!    Remember….  Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.   (Grace’s Code 1090)
