updates again

My husband and I just recently celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary. We had a lovely evening out to dinner, just the two of us. Before we left home, our daughter took a picture of us..she did a pretty good job of it too! :) I think perhaps, suitable for framing :)
We have been busy, busy, and are on the hunt for a new homestead! Been searching and looking for just the perfect house for our family to live in. I am certain I want a nice front porch this time. I do hope we can find a house with one. I do need a front porch for sipping tea, stitching and relaxing with the long summer days ahead..don't you agree? :)
Please keep us in your prayers and thoughts that the perfect house will pop up for us and God will plant us where we need to be, and at the perfect time. I do not want to move anymore, and I want this move to be the last and final move in our lives. I want this to be our final "earth" home and I want it to "feel" like home.
I haven't truly felt settled in a very long time now. Too much moving around!
School is winding down for our daughter. I am so glad for that. She needs the summer break too. Our son has been keeping up with military training and doing extremely well..bootcamp is coming up all too soon.
I don't know if I will fare very well with him leaving the nest. How will I ever say "goodbye" to my son. Although, I really do not believe in goodbye's...only farewell's for now...
I am proud of him and want the best for him, but somehow I don't want to let go, but know I have to.
A Mom will always worry, and always have that strong love and bond, it never ends.
Oh, this is going to be one hard and emotional month ahead with so much going on.

Please, won't you think of me and keep me in your prayers, I would so appreciate it.
I need all the hugs anyone can offer, I truly do,
Thank you,


  1. Congratulations on your anniversary. I hope you find the perfect home for you and your family and that you get your wish of being settled. I always think of that saying as my children grow up. "A mother holds their child's hand for a short time, but holds their heart for ever". My eldest DS is getting ready to leave home and move on to. He is hoping to get a place at a Summer Camp in the US, it is hard to see them go.

  2. Congratulations on 26 wonderful years!! That picture of you and hubby is beautiful and frame worthy :)

    Best of luck on the house hunt. Did ya'll settle on a location/town??

    Take care

  3. Happy Anniversary! Very sweet picture of the two of you. I'll keep you in my prayers as you go through all that you have to do.

  4. 26 years just flew by didn't it? You are in my prayers for this new adventure in your life.

  5. Happy Anniversary! Great photo.
    Good luck to your son!
