If you want to hear an angel sing, go to my soundclick site and listen to my precious daughter-in-law sing There Will Be Peace which she recorded on Simon Daum's album Steadfast. She is working on some new music to add to her website which is She has been such a delightful addition to our family. Of course, that darling granddaughter, Journey is too.

Hope those links work as I am still learning to do this!

Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Look at my cute little Pilgrims and Indians that my darling hubby bought me for our table yesterday. This is not how they were displayed. I put them all together for the photo. They have the cutest little faces. Wish you could see them IRL. We had a party building full of people and tons of great food. We are truly grateful for all of our blessings.

Why those songs?

If you have not noticed, there is quite a variety of music in my playlist. I like all music except rap (sorry to my boys). I just don't like it! The first few songs are reminders to myself. My husband is a treasure to me. He loves me endlessly and unconditionally. I love him with all that I am. Then there's the Micahel Jackson oldie. I know what he is but it's the words of that song that get me. We have lost some dear friends and family members way too soon. This song reminds me that me have no promise for tomorrow. Enjoy the time you have and let those you love know how much you love them. Over the years we have lost premature grandchildren, my best friends 12 year old son, my wonderful father in law and my daughter's 23 year old friend way too soon. This past year, my daddy's death was a life changing loss. He was the love of my mom's life even though they divorced when I was about 11. He was not a faithful husband and not a constant in our lives. Many years passed that we did not speak to our daddy. When we did begin to spend time together again, he was a good daddy and a great Paw paw Mac to my boys. I think about how different not only our lives could have been if he had been faithful to our mother but how many peoples lives would have been different. So if you are married, be faithful. Honor your vows for yourself, your spouse, your children, your in laws, your granchildren, your siblings, your nieces and nephews and friends that you and your spouse share. Divorce is like dropping a pebble in a lake. The ripples go on for years though not just moments. I would love to have those years back with my daddy. And then the tributary songs for the brave soldiers who have fought for our freedoms for hundreds of years. I love being American. I love the opportuniues that we have here. I am thankful for their sacrifice and they are all HEROES in my eyes. Never forget our Veterans! Then some more gushy loves songs that have been my favorites over the years. I am so lucky to have everyone that I have in my life. Even that person who pulls out in front of me and drives soooo slow and makes me late. God put them there to hinder my voyage for a reason. Quite possibly to save my life. Think of the lives that were saved on 911 because they were running late and did not make their flights or make it to work on time! I love my life! I love my Savior and I am still searching for my favorite hymns for my playlist. So check back and see what they are. Gotta take the boys to school and sneak away for breakfast with my best buds, Shannon and Pam! Off to IHOP. Have a wondeful day and make someone else's day wonderful while you are at it!

My first post

OK. I am finally doing it. I am addicted to so many blogs and so many elements on everyone else's blogs that I have to try it too. By trial and error, I am adding some elements that I have seen on other blogs. Bear with me while I play around. I sold my first item on ebay today and that sort of gave me the confidence to try this too! Yeah me!
I will learn to upload photos so I can post those of my crafts and family too. I am very excited.
