time flies

The great thing about getting older is that you don’t lose all the other ages you’ve been.
Madeleine L’Engle

and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace.”

    Julie, she is beautiful. Those eyes 👀. Time does fly. It’s so good to see you. Blessings to you my friend. ❤️

    • How’s that rooted house of yours?!

        Well,… I love it. And this is after 4 weeks of two air handlers of my mini split system with leaks and cracks (no wonder I was cold lol), leaking water heater (replaced the T & P valve~leaked again because I have a closed system so it needs a pressure tank), a dishwasher replacement (all good) and now know insulation issues will need to be addressed. But I am blessed!! I have a frozen pipe in kitchen with this winter storm. But I have electricity and now water in all bathrooms. I’m proud of my house and once the issues are all repaired I’m sure another one will be waiting. But we have a love~love relationship and it’s home 🏡 💛❤️💚 how’s yours?

    Amen.
    She looks like a precocious darling. Enjoy!
    Loved seeing these photos this morning.
    It brought back some very delightful memories of my granddaughter with whom I had the pleasure of nurturing three days a week while her Mama worked in the big city! (Boston!)

    She is the epitome of adorableness. Such mischief in her beautiful eyes – just waiting to pull your strings. Treasure the moments. They go so fast.

  6. Happy Birthday to our favorite Mayor 🎂🥳 God bless from 🐛😍

  7. I’ve often complained that they grow too fast. Tried to get my kids to put weights on their heads to keep them from growing so fast but time moves so quickly now. My youngest grandchild is now 17. He should still be only a few months old. Huge sigh! The Mayor is such a beautiful little girl! May she always be blessed.

    She is adorable and looks like great fun (based on her two-year old pic). I love what Lois Wyse said: if she had known how wonderful it would be to have grandchildren, she would’ve had them first!

    It is so hard to believe that the Mayor is three!! What joy she has brought into so many lives. May God bless her and keep her in God’s tender loving care!
