The Important Things In Life


Through it all, is there nothing more lovely than family and friends?  Despite our heartbreaking moments this weekend, it was also a weekend filled with celebration.


A year ago Saturday I posted one of my all time most popular posts, And A Child Was Born, about our first granddaughter being born.  What a blessing.  No one could have told me how intense that love is for a child born to one’s child.  She has filled our house and our lives with so much happiness and fond memories.  How grateful we are that, even though they are teenagers, Emily and Bret decided to keep and raise the most beautiful princess, Maryjane Rose.


Doug’s birthday was Sunday and we all headed out for pizza with our kids and their boy/girl friends.  Then onto an amusement center where we wiled the hours away with bowling, laser tag, and ski ball with friends and family.  A nice change from the solemnity of the farm, I tell you!


It is entirely possible that we will be adopting a day old bottle baby goat kid tomorrow.  I shall keep you posted.

Thanks for being a part of our lives, if through sharing our small town, joining in our family memories, are blood related, or through script, I love being a part of such a large community of friends, talented writers, and family.
