My Wonderful Mother's Day

(The cake Moriah made me--yummy)

(Look we match!!)

I had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend! It all started Saturday night when my wonderful hubby took me out to the Botanical Gardens for a Moonlight walk. The gardens had a special event going on with a concert and candle lit trails. It was wonderful! The moon was full and the gardens smelled splendid. We couldn't really see much on the trail, but the flowery smell was wonderful. While we listened to the concert we shared a glass of Chardonay. Then later shared a strawberry milkshake. When we came back home that evening, the kids were all tucked in bed and my house was clean, along with all my laundry folded.

The following morning I slept in and woke up to kisses from all my babies and cards with words of love. My oldest daughter Moriah had baked me a cake (pictured above) while we were on our date. My oldest son cooked me an omelet for breakfast and my hubby bought me Barnie's Coffee. Then later that afternoon, Donnie and the four oldest children, picked me wildflowers and walked into my bedroom where I was nursing the baby, saying "Happy Mother's Day"--with singing voices. The bouquet is beautiful. I really felt so appreciated by each one of my guys and gals. Hope your Mother's Day was just as wonderful.

Hello- You have a nice family. I found you through other's blogs. I saw your little family thing at the bottom and put it on my page. How fun. Also I love the chore card idea. I think the Duggar family does that(if you know who they are) Where can I find the cards?

You crack me up!! Yep, I'm pretty easy but I don't lack discipline. Does that make sense? I do try to find a semi-normal balance!!

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Part 2 of my last post/A Reply to a Comment

I decided to write a second part to my last post in response to some comments that were left. I understand the heart of the woman who wrote the response and I am in no way being critical of her comment. I just want to share my heart in a more deeper way. Here it goes: By far am I thinking and promoting people to walk in gray areas or sin. I am just simply sharing that we are all on this journey of walking with the Lord and sometimes we as Christian women can put yokes of bondage out of Law and not allow the Lord to change us by His Spirit. I am wanting to share how the Grace of God has taught me that by His Spirit I can be changed, not by doctrines or teachings of religion. Yes, the bible clearly says that women should wear modest apparel. Does this mean skirts? Yes, it says that having long hair is a covering for the woman? But will Jesus still love me if I do cut my hair? And how long is long enough? Some women cut their hair to help a good cause such as wigs for cancer
