Things that brought a smile...

In this crazy world where we are hearing "gloom and doom", I have still had things to smile about...

  • churches being built
  • dads and boys experiencing life together
  • kind deeds and love shown from friends
  • how contagious a newborn's smile is
  • congregations singing praises together
  • brothers wrestling
  • our girl giggling at everything her dad says
  • fall colors showing up around us
  • piano students playing songs after a week of practice
  • "Indian" summer days
  • families working together
  • stacks of clean laundry

What brings a smile to your face?

Baby Claire

While the rest of the country is wrapped up in politics, women working, football, and weather, we are wrapping our minds around having a new little person in the house. Sleeping, eating, and changing diapers consume our days. But we've been around this block enough to know that it goes all too fast. So we are rather enjoying it. We'll catch up with the rest of the world soon enough!
