Blessings of Thanksgiving

Prior to tomorrows chaos dashing from store to store looking for one thing! 
Decorating the table, cleaning house and my other rants.

I wish you all a beautiful Thanksgiving. Full of peace, healthy and happy family and friends, full bellies and warm hearts. love- kat

and from a dear soul who left this world too soon, my lovely kind hearted,  skinny haired friend, (mother, grandmother, sister, wife) Sandra. This is a blessing that she kept written in her family bible and read each time her family and friends gathered. I just love it.

“Our Heavenly Father, we thank you for the food before us, the roof above us, and for this family. Help us remember that a family is for growing up in, for going away from and for coming back to. It is for loving concern, for helping each other through happy times and sad. With Your blessing, this family will always be together in our hearts and in our memories, giving each of us the strength to live our own lives and to be our own persons. Amen.”

Thank you God

Dear Son {jack age 5}


Jack you are 5 years old. It’s Fall and you are in kindergarten. You are bright eyed and always a bundle of energy. You wake up before sun up everyday, your feet (literally) hit the ground running. You love learning new things. You are obsessed with Duck Dynasty, Scooby Doo and Phineas & Ferb. You have lost 2 teeth. You are me made over! You say the funniest things! You call outfits, get-up’s. You question everything. You never stop talking! I love you more than anything in the world. You have brightened my life in everyway. Your favorite food changes weekly from popcorn to apples. You tell everyone you are allergic to peanut butter, your not. Prayer time is your favorite time to share.You pray for all your people, list every single family member from Mema down sometimes sorting between boy and girl. You laugh and laugh a lot. You are a gift from God and I am amazed everyday that I was blessed with you.  You LOVE life and you are AWESOME!

Love- Mommy
