2nd Anniversary

We were at the cemetery this morning for my mom's 2nd Anniversary.

Makenna was extremely excited to run to the grave site when we pointed out it was the one with the flowers.

Actually she barely skinned her knee, ( see the blood in the above photo ) but screamed the entire time we were there and all the way home like her knee cap had been blown off. I'm not going to say it didn't hurt initially, but 20 minutes later... don't think so!

Happy Wednesday... have a blessed one!

They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
