As of today at 11:34 am, I will have two teenagers in my home.  WHOA!

Back in my younger days I thought these days would be at least a smidgen of an eternity away. NOT SO!

Here I am. Here we are. Hurtling head long into the teenage years. Seriously, I don’t know if I’m old enough for this! But, here it is anyway and so today I must tell you about the newest teen in our family.

This boy here, he’s made his presence know from the very moment he was born!  He is full of life and enough energy to run electricity for a small village (at least)!

He is goofy and funny and just plain makes me laugh!

He is the master of imagination…

A mighty hunter.


A young man with a heart of gold.  And a heart for God.

This boy who in ten minutes will begin a new journey steals my heart with his lightly freckled nose, his ocean deep brown eyes, the bounce in his step, and his never see them coming hugs!  He is a true Tigger!


J, I love you with an everlasting love. You are a light in this household.  An absolute blessing to your dad and me. Never lose your joy in life. Hold on to your smile and laughter. God has given you the ability to find the positives in all situations and He has given you the drive to keep on keeping on. True blessings indeed. 

You have my heart!
