It's the little things


I love big moments in life... traveling, meeting new people, Christmas, weddings. You get the picture. But the little things are what make the difference in someone's day. Flowers just because, coffee handed to you as you wake up, a hug and a simple I love you. Laughing at your favorite show with people you love, doing the dishes for me, that ones big. And this....


My oh-so-amazing husband did this for us. We haven't slept well for a while and  grumpy people don't make for a happy marriage. The a/c in our home does a fantastic job on two floors. Problem is we have three. That last one being where we sleep. So he climbed  in the hot attic, did the supports and wiring,  came down all sweaty and hot and installed this quiet fan to blow the air around so we can sleep and awaken friendly once again. 

Really it is the little things. A good night's rest with a cool breeze. 

I am thankful.

She's a Papermaker!

I know... A Papermaker? Well we live in a mill town with a great love for their history.   It's been a long process to place Lina in school and let me say we are thrilled! Overjoyed! Relieved! 

Now to embrace a new part of our journey. 

Here's to the class of 2017!
Here's to you Hollywood!

Friends are Friends Forever




 Our sweet friends are in the states for a short while and we had the blessing of seeing them as they placed their feet on the ground. Michael W. Smith said it best in his song and the words ring true still today. These two became fast friends in Colorado and distance hasn't changed a thing.  Such Joy!

And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say never
'Cause the welcome will not end
 
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends
 
words and lyrics by Michael W. Smith

Sand Volleyball

 
Keeping our girl's hands on the ball.
 
Seems to be our theme right now. It's been a busy month of sand volleyball, summer league and clinics but worth the time. Not sure sand is her "thing" as much a court v'ball but hey, if you don't try, you don't know and it's given her more exercise and strength training. Plus who doesn't like a beach! We'll take it.
