the empty tape roll…

the empty tape roll…

On Monday at our homeschool co-op, I asked Grady to go throw this empty tape roll away.  I watched him run over to the trash can & pause…I could see his little wheels turning.  He ran back over to me & said “Mommy, I don’t want to throw this away b/c it’s recyclable.”  Ha!  He proceeded to put it in this […]

Under the Maple

We pulled into Tennessee with hopeful hearts, big dreams & several ideas up our sleeves but no real, concrete plans.  I know that may sound crazy to some of you, but we’ve spent the last several years praying…hard, saving & planning for whatever the next season would hold.  We sensed that it was going to be a time of adventure for […]

Are you singing Sam Cooke right now or is it just me?  Man that guy can sayng…but I digress!;) Last weekend, my husband announced some big news to our congregation.  In August, our family will be packing up & heading back East to Tennessee, where both of our families still live.  This was definitely not a decision we made lightly, rather it’s […]

Six years ago today, my life changed forever!  I am so thankful for my precious Grady & the amazing privilege of being his Mommy!

A Father’s Prayer

Father’s Day was never an easy holiday for me as a kid.  As I got older & understood more, it only became harder.  But I am so thankful for a God who peels back layers of hurt and heals.  He is showing me a beautiful picture of grace as I watch my husband father our children.  It has made me fall in love with […]

Summer days can feel long!  We’re in week 3 of our break & still finding our groove.  I’m definitely a home body…I joke that I can’t handle more than one outing a day but it’s totally the truth.  That being said, it’s crazy how much just 2 days of preschool breaks up our week!  I woke up this morning feeling […]

For those of you who have joined us in prayer for the Clark family who tragically lost their son, Tate last month…today would have been his 5th birthday.  To honor him, Allison asked that everyone do 5 acts of kindness & post about it on her webpage, Pocketful of Tissues and Hope on Facebook.  I can’t even imagine how hard today has been but […]
