I Love This Life

I'm starting out this morning by saying Happy Anniversary to my husband of 39 years.
We were 18 in this picture standing in front of the Court House in Tucson, AZ - young and determined to make it on our own.

It would take me writing a book for you to have a clear understanding, but walking out the door of my parents home to live your own life took courage. I found my wings and flew away with my soulmate by my side, and a newborn in my arms. 

 There's been a lot of growth personally and family size since that day in 1977 - with some bumps in the road, but life would be a boring ride if we didn't have those bumps to teach us some of life's greatest lessons. 
I'm grateful, thankful, and blessed beyond measure. I love this life and all that it has to offer!

Peace, Love, & Hugs!

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. 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…
