"If we see light only with our eyes and not with our soul,we have missed it's true beauty"
I'm dealing with alot of things right now.Despite hurdles I'm forced to overcome I am remaining positive and looking to the future. I have circle of supportive family and friends and what a blessing they've been to me and my family.I hope they all know how much I appreciate them.
I can't believe how fast this summer is flying by.My kids go back to school in 5 weeks! WOW! Fall is right around the corner and that can never come too soon for me! My oldest son is learning to drive and boy that's a difficult one for me to handle. Seeing him riding a skateboard is terrifying let alone sitting behind the wheel. Anyone have some extra nerves of steel they want to send me?
So anyway,life goes on with many changes and milestones every day. One day at a time...................
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.
