Happy Thanksgiving

TO all who read my blog..Happy Thanksgiving!!
All month I have been listing daily on facebook the things I am Thankful for.
Today I listed what I was MOST thankful for.
It is my savior Jesus Christ.
Without Him all of my other thanks would not be possible.
Enjoy your day whatever you are doing!

Angels For Sandy

Happy Sunday everyone.

Hope all is well with everybody.  I am enjoying life.

I have been busy creating.

I came by today to let you know about an auction that is so dear to my heart.

As most of you know we lost Sandy from The Olde Country Cupboard a few months back after a battle with cancer.

I so miss her!

So we are having an online auction and all proceeds go to her family.

It starts tomorrow November 11th. The theme is Angels.
 You can come see what everyone has made and bid.

What a great way to honor Sandy and all that she did.

Here is the link to the facebook page auction. Just ask to join and there you go.

Here is sneak peek at what I made. It is a pillow tuck and you can remove the angel and hang on your tree at Christmas.
I hope to see everyone there.

He is 23..WOW

Our oldest son turned 23 today.

I know we moms say this all the time....


Only a few years ago I was rocking him to sleep, taking him to school football games, teaching him how to do his own laundry, watching him graduate.

It's like you blink and they are all grown up!

Writing this post makes my eyes tear up and my heart swell. Hubby and I have been so blessed with such an amazing son.

I love you Damian with all that is in me!
I love being your mom!
You have brought me such joy!!
