The video is of Little Miss walking for the first time at my house and it being the first time I had seen her do it. We had lots of fun that day, and I cannot wait until she discovers she can run, that will be a blast for me….IF I can keep up with her.
I hope you enjoy this homemade video of her…..

It is always worth paying to have a professional photographer take pictures of the kids. They seem to capture moments that even you might miss because you are around them all the time.

From our family to the photographer Brianne Glover with Brianne Glover Photography we would like to give you a special thank you for the moments you capture of our love ones.

WordPress & Facebook Junkie

WordPress & Facebook Junkie

A few years ago I was deep into blogging, but I had to stop for it was taking up to much of time. I found Facebook to be a means to add things that I was interested in but many people will not take the time to read more than a few words on it. It is a fast way to express oneself, but at what cost? I do like the fact that I can use both of them as tool to voice my thoughts and opinions. One thing I do not understand is why more people are not using WordPress that are on Facebook? WordPress is a great tool that allows you to do more of self expression than that of just Facebook alone. I decided to start blogging again with idea that I will keep most of my postings to a three or four paragraph limit most of the time.

I must confess I am still very much a Facebook junkie and I will be for a long time. I hope that my Facebook friends will also use this tool of blogging to express deeper thoughts of their lives. For those of you that are Facebook junkies like myself, if you decide to start blogging I want you to know it is very easy and free if you use and I promise you will find it to be a lot of fun and relaxing, too!

Life with pictures….2014


Life with pictures….2014

It’s important to me to capture every single moment that I can, I am not sure why I feel this way, but I do.

Maybe it is because life is so short that we miss so much in our everyday life, and we miss those special moments never to get them back.

I know I missed way to many years of my daughters growing up with the kind of work I do, that now I do not want to miss the growing up of my grandchildren. At one time I was an over the road truck driver being gone from home weeks at a time. Missing so much of the growth of my daughters, now that I am home everyday I do not want to miss this time with the grandbabies.

I will take pictures to keep the memory of the day or the event for a lifetime. I have trained the granddaughter pretty well so far how to pose for a picture but I think I need to work on her smile for the camera, just a little more.

I have an idea!

I have an idea!

While I was working last night, I thought maybe it would be fun to add a page on this blog that would be of a personal daily must do kind of thing. This is what I am thinking of doing and I would like some input from folks on it and if you would also be interested in doing the same.

Start a new page called the (Daily Do) and what will be on this page is one main word for each day.

Example: Laughter

The way I want this to play out is that we take the one word and we try to make it happened with people we talk to during our day. Sometimes it might just be one person you will find that needs the word or perhaps many. Then I want you to write a short comment in the post of one experience what happened when you used the word.

Lets start with this one word given here today and use this post as a sample post to see if it will work before I start a whole another page.

 Rules on what you can do with the word:

1- you can use it with everyone you meet in a sentence, and see their reaction.

2- you can make someone do the word, and see their reaction.

3- you can do the word over and over again while talking to a person, and get their reaction.

I think this idea will be a lot of fun if we try it for a week each day.

Life is what comes next?

Life is what comes next?

I am sure this title has you wondering what path I am going to go with it.

In life we seem to always wonder what can happen next, especially when times are hard or we are having a bad day. I myself have had the same experience many times in life as it has moved along, but this is not about that nor is it about the after life when we’re gone.imagesFE1RGPI2

As people we have many good things that happen to us throughout life only to be shadowed by the bad ones. We seem to remember the worst days of life rather than the good days and the best days. We need to slow down, take time to enjoy all aspects of life, and really begin to live life each moment at a time. We need to stop looking at things so negatively and see the positive side of what it is. The old Ying & Yang theory really does exist in everything.positive-negative

I recently watched a video of a mother and her newborn son that was born without eyes and a mouth pallet. This poor first time mother was very scared, heart broken in many ways, full of fear of how her and her husband would be able to take care of their son. The doctors had no ideas what to do to help her but the amazing thing in the whole story it was her son that helped her. Let me give you just a small amount of the story of her troubles she was going through and how her son help her and many, many others see the positive side of life.

She would take him out in public, people would point and say terrible things about him, one women if told her how much of a bad person she was for not aborting him. This poor women had already been through so much then she was faced with the cold hearted nature of people, then it happened just like a miracle from God sent to this world to see, to hear, and to bring much needed joy to this mother. This little boy would since when someone would stare at him and he would giggle a giggle so sweet sounding that peoples hearts would open up with joy. With his giggle he opened eyes to see beyond the sadness of his situation and see the joy he has to offer this world and he did this all before he was one years old.Positive-over-Negative

I hope this story would also open your eyes to the positive things all around you, look for them and you will see them everywhere. It is so easy to see the negative side, a little harder to see the positive side, but I promise it comes easier the more you look for it. When you begin to do this more and more often a whole new live comes next.

Love the world, love your fellow man, be positive, look for the good things this life has to offer, and remember we’re only here for a short time so do it right.
