I love the Pumpkin Patch!! This year was our 5th trek to the Flower Mound Pumpkin Patch... WOW! The first year we went I told DH that I wanted to make this a tradition and now with five years under our belt I would say we are off to a good start and the wonderful part is that James LOVES it and starts looking forward to it in July and August. Out of the blue he will just start sighing and asking when is it time to go to the Patch. Miah had a great time on her secound trip and I think she too will be looking forward to next year and all the fun we will have. Happy Fall Ya'll!

Before I knew life on my own there was my mother. My anchor in life and a constant reminder that I was very loved. She held me, fed and clothed me. She protected me and gave me room to fly. My mother was and is a friend to me when I needed one, a role model and drill Sargent if she needed to be. Most everything I learned in life came from her.
After I had moved into a life of being an adult and many years of waiting and longing, along came my daughter. I want to be an anchor in her life and a constant reminder that she is very loved. I will hold, feed and clothe her. I want to protect her innocence and give her room to fly. I want to be a role model and drill Sargent if I need to be... I want to be a friend when she needs me to be. I want to teach her many things in this life, but most of all I want to love her.
My before and after, My Mother, My Daughter.... what blessings they are to me and how sweet is it to be in the middle of such love! More than anything I want them both to have a very special bond, to be close and learn from each other... there is a quote by Charles Dickens: "Nature gives to every time and season, some beauties of its own." I must say that this is so very true and never more so than when I look at my Mother and Daughter together.
These Are a few pictures of my family... My dad, Mom and DH! I had a chance just to shoot the camera with some results I love.
My dad has changed a lot in the last few months and is not as young as he use to be. I know he is not feeling really great and I just keep thinking about how quickly we lost Randys dad. Now all the time I have with my dad is Presious... I do not want to take one single moment for granted and I soak up all that I can when I am with him. I love you dad!
Time moves so quickly and life just flys by... Don't wait to say I love you. Don't hesitate to make that call or say what is on your heart. Tommrow is not promised, Live in the moment God gave you today and Love now.
