Sweet Ending

The curtains are closing on the summer of 2010. This has been a challenging season for our family, but not all bitter, there has been a good bit of sweet. Just tonight, the babies crawled up on our bed and cuddled between Wayne and I for a bedtime story. Is there anything sweeter than baby kisses and giggles....I could have stayed there for hours, but Phoebe and Ruby had other ideas! The cuddles turned into a wrestling match and we were forced to put the opponents in their own beds! Just like my little girls dread hitting the sack,  I really don't want these long, warm days to end. On the other hand, I'm anxious for the fall and for a new start! Our family and friends have filled these days with such love, more than I can even comprehend. Sweet, sweet blessings. I've highlighted a few of the sweetest spots!

*Strawberry picking at Westmoreland Berry Farm.
* A Sunday night walk through the battlefield.
*A visit from Grandma and Grandpa.
*Vacation Bible School at Colonial Heights Baptist Church (The kids loved it!)
*Blackberry picking....followed by blackberry pie!
*All Stars!
*July 9, Cow Appreciation Day.
*A "hang in there friend" phone call at just the right moment.
*Hosting a 5 Day Club at our house!
*July 17, 2010, a good day to rest in the arms of Jesus.
*Friends, incredible, wonderful friends.
*Wayne's wonderful aunts and parents were with me at the hospital.
*ATP administered just in time, Wayne' speech is restored!
*Grandma and Grandpa, Aunt Fran, Nina and the cousins show up to hold down the fort.
*Food, homemade with love from family, friends and even a few strangers.
*The doctors found a hole in the sweetest heart in the world.
*A kind and compassionate employer.
*Cousins, cousins, and even more cousins!!!!
*Myrtle Beach with the family.
*Grandma and Grandpa, Aunt Fran and Uncle Jason (& the cousins) return to the hold down the fort again!
*August 12, 2010, the hole is patched. Wayne's sweet heart is as good as new.
*Ice cream in a box! All the way from California!
* Movie nights, seven people piled up on one couch.
*"Bark in the Park" at the Richmond Squirrels. Tebow's first (and most likely last) professional ballgame.
*August 29, 2010, Wayne's still got it! It was so good to see him behind the pulpit again!
*Water balloon fight!

I thank my God in all my remembrance of you. Philippians 1:3

  1. Holy Moly, Tebow went to a game. Please don't tell my dogs. Way to count your blessings, my friend. And summer's bad days just means fall is bound to have that many more good ones!
