Just 4 Days Away

The excitement is here, our home is filling with people we love, there are piles of wedding items in our dining room and budding mums on our front porch.  There is going to be a wedding in our family in 4 days. Once again I am reminded at how fast the seasons of life pass by – this morning I am sitting on our couch with my married daughter watching my grandson kick away on the floor.  Just last year,…

They're Engaged!!

Last Wednesday, Saint Patrick’s Day, our oldest daughter, Alycia said YES to marrying Jason.  She started her day in Florida with her Grandparents and me, arrived in Pittsburgh in time to have lunch with her Daddy and by that evening, she had a fiance and a beautiful engagement ring on her finger. Photo taken by Jason’s Mom of Jason & Alycia that evening. Once again, Bill and I are so blessed by God bringing Jason into Alycia’s life.  I told him…

Two Days Away…

Josiah and Laryssa’s wedding day is now 2 days away and things are getting busy around our home.  My parents have arrived and Alycia arrives tomorrow and Audrianna on Friday.  There are small piles of items around our house needed for the rehearsal, the bonfire, the actual wedding ceremony & reception and then the gift opening luncheon.  It is going to be a busy weekend.    How quickly the seasons of life change – right now, my almost married daughter is…

Isn't Technology Amazing

  The last 2 days I have been able to have written conversations with Audrianna in Latvia via our Gmail Chat Accounts.  We both can immediately respond to each others words and thoughts — from Eastern Europe to Western Pennsylvania.  It is just amazing how connected we can still be even though she is thousands of miles apart.  We share the news of our days, our thoughts, feelings and prayers just as we do when we are together.  It does…

Working myself out of one more job…

Yesterday, Audrianna (my youngest daughter) pass her test to receive her driver’s license.  That is such an accomplishment for a 16 1/2 year old – but another loss for a Mom.  That time you spend driving your child (or children) to and from different activities –  like lessons, practice, church activities and more –  is good communication time.  And although I am thrilled for her, once again I am feeling what I mentioned a few days ago — that I…

My Daughter's Sweet 16

 Yesterday, our youngest daughter, Audrianna, turned 16.  We were blessed by a wonderful array of friends celebrating her birthday with a surprise party at our home.  The youngest party attender was 4 and the oldest was my husband’s father who is 78.  We had about 50 people at our  home ~ I am so thankful for a home that comfortably accommodates that many people. Our house was full of little ones from families from MOPS (most of whom she babysits…
