time to say goodbye

Our very sweet sister-in-law finished her course in life. She bravely battled her cancer with such a positive outlook & unwavering faith.  Here is a link to her obituary.

a day trip to Waco

After several attempts to make this day trip with my dear sister, Amy & I finally had success this week.  The trip was especially fun with nonstop sister chatting all the way up & down IH35. 
Not long ago read about Magnolia Market...that it had re-opened.  Our curiosity got the best of us & we had to check it out.  The store was smaller than I had envisioned, but there was so much to look at.  It took us a few trips around the store to see it all. 
We found a few treasures & it's been fun adding them around the house!

Check out the company's online store.

My favorite purchase:  Magnolia Signature Diffuser.  The scent is not too overwhelming...light & fresh, perfect for our living area.

A special Cowboy Coffee for the ride home to finish our fantastic trip.

Trying new things...

Trevin is finishing up kindergarten with some fun is his robot dog. 
Description:  The robot takes pictures with its collar camera & then you can see the pictures on your computer."  He came up with this idea all by himself.  I like his originality.

He's also been working hard on his reading fluency & has made great strides recently.
He came home with some new books to try!
Trevin attended his first sign language class last night.  What a great kid to try something new.  He learned lots & was excited to share it when we got home.  We have a new deaf friend who comes to our meetings.  We're learning to communicate with her!

Where are we?

"Papa, please tell us where we are."

Such good pondering for my heart today. 
Where am I in this journey of life? 
At the beginning, the middle or the end?
None of us know for sure.

What really matters is that I'm close to Him.
The One who lends us strength,
The One who walks beside us through every valley, every plain, & every mountain experience.

What really matters is that I'm following the one who knows the way.
The way that leads to life.
The way that leads us home.

What really matters is that I'm safe to follow.
