The more help a person has in his garden, the less it belongs to him.
-William H Davis
This house we live in is our home.
We share it with the ones we love.
  Ones who help bring their own personalities, imaginations, and creations. 
Ones who seem to help make a mess every where they go.
Ones that offer to help clean.
Ones who help fill our home with joy.

Speak the truth even if your voice shakes.
-Maggie Kuhn
My faults and failings as a mother often seem to be so many. Many times I look these beautiful children that God has given to me, and wonder how He thought I was the perfect mother for them? I often struggle. I mess up. I have to say I'm sorry, a lot. Asking for their forgiveness always makes my voice start to shake. But how quick they are to forgive! After hearing that wonderful blessing the heart beats an extra beat, then once again I am left feeling light and refreshed.

Your hand will uplift me, Lord, when I have fallen; my failings and trespasses all are forgiven. All are forgiven. Hymn 467;3

Don't put off for tomorrow what you can do today, because if you enjoy it today you can do it again tomorrow. 
-James A. Michener
This summer we have been enjoying each moment we can be outside. We have definitely made a number of trips to the park and even to the lake, but my favorite place to be outside is our yard.
The flowers in window boxes and pots seem to draw me outside, close to every morning to water them before the heat of the day its upon us.
The coolness of the morning and the taste of the first cup of coffee, a great way to start the day!  I appreciate these few quiet moments I have to myself.  
The kids have been working to help me slowly add a flower bed in behind our house.  It's been a love of labor, something that keeps drawing me outside.
