Blessings for the New Year
Wow,it's been quite awhile since I've posted but things have been really hectic the last month or so. I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays with your loved ones and hopefully you're enjoying a peaceful start to the new year. We had a good Christmas and celebrated our 2 oldest boys birthdays on Jan 1st. I am faced with many challenges in this new year but I'm hopeful and looking ahead and I'm so full of faith and support from my family that I know things will be ok. I've always loved angels and cherubs but it seems lately I NEED to be surrounded by them more than ever so I've started putting out my collection again.I have candles,figurines,pictures,plates etc etc.I'm finding them very comforting right now. I have a pretty full day ahead today and the kids all go back to school on Monday so lots to keep me busy. I have a few wonderful recipes that I stumbled across over the holidays and I want to post them soon so I hope to be back to blogging a little more often.
I'm a stay at home Christian mom of 7 kids ranging in age from 19 down to 6. I am truly a country girl at heart and hope to someday move to a small farm out in nowhere :) I love my family and my husband,I love to cook and try new recipes~mostly down home style food I ate growing up.
If you want a glimpse of Southern life,Come close and walk with me;I'll tell you all the simple things,That you are sure to see.You'll see mockingbirds and bumblebees,Magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees;
Caterpillars on the step,Wooden porches cleanly swept;Watermelons on the vine, Strong majestic Georgia pines Rocking chairs and front yard swingsJunebugs flying on a stringTurnip greens and hotcornbread,Coleslaw and barbecueFried okra, fried corn,fried green tomatoes,Fried pies and pickles too.
There's ice cold tea that 's syrupy sweet,And cool, green grass beneath your feet;Catfish nipping in the lake,And fresh young boys on the make.You'll see all these thingsAnd much, much more,In a way of life, that I adore.
