Happy Birthday Jenni!


Happy Birthday to my beautiful daughter!

Today, March 14th, 34 years ago – you came into my world.  Your birthday is really my celebration…because your life has made such a wonderful difference in mine.

Dear Jenni today I reflect on the miracle of your life.

I thank God for the gift of being your Mom. I ask Him to shower you with His blessings and protection because I love you so very much. These are everyday wishes I pray for you.

I pray you will be happy and embrace the joy of each new day. Fill your amazing heart with wonder and be full of courage and hope.

Embrace the love of your family and  friends Jenni, they all love and cherish you. Dad and I are honored to be your parents . . . you are great medicine for my soul.

I pray you will have the insight to see your inner and outer beauty – you are so very beautiful my dear daughter.  I want you to enjoy millions of moments when you find satisfaction in the things you do so wonderfully. I am very proud of you!

Jenni, please remember wherever you are and whatever I may do, there will never be a day in my life when I won’t be wishing and praying the best for you…

Happy Birthday Jenni Girl!

I love you ~ Mom

Christmas in March!


Feeling so blessed . . . yesterday Kevon and I had Christmas with Michael and Naketa . . . perfect day . . . even had snow! I love my family . . . “Being a Mother is not about what you gave up to have a child, but what you gained from having one”

Snow and Cold



Winter is not over . . . the snow and cold returned this week! I do love watching the birds out my window and “Red” (my favorite squirrel)! So beautiful . . . “Kindness is like snow – it beautifies everything it covers” .  . . Kahlil Gibran

February by the Lake


Beautiful Big Lake that I love! The sand and snow mixture on the beach reminds me of meringue on Lemon Meringue Pie! There is ice next to the beach and then beautiful blue open water due to the above average temperatures this February. “A lake is the landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature. It is earth’s eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.”  ~Henry David Thoreau
