the marching

It’s been a minute. 

I’ve been super slack. 

Funny too because I write here all the time in my head. 

It’s time to put fingers to keyboard and get it done.

This little Ninja girl slipped into our lives full-on exactly two months ago this day.    I posted here with this picture but, forgot to hit publish.  .  .  what was I thinking? 

This little delight is a complete chatterbox.  She has lots to say. . . and wants her momma’s full attention.  

That momma obliges and my heart sings. 

Today I can hear the conversations as her momma tells her that on this very day she should be proud because her family is Marching for Life.  . . for so many years in a row now, they march.    

They march with the old and young of Greenville . . . they march with the man with the big laugh as he leads his group of youth.  They March with all of America in D.C.  

Marching on. . . peacefully.  

Standing up for what is right

and good

and holy.  

for the youngest ones.  . . for the most vulnerable . . . for all life 

they march.

and I’m not going to lie. . . I’m so proud they stand up.  

The fisherman and I have always told them to be better than us.  Do better than us  .  . they are.  . . they do.  

and I’m in awe of them all.

The Thing I Came to Tell You

You know, I just haven’t had much time to post lately. My kids have been busy with term papers, research papers and more papers.

It seems their teacher has really loaded them down with quite a lot of work to do. And being that we are a little one room, one computer school house…….I have to share.
Mother’s Day was grand….my kids shower me gifts! The boys have been unloading trucks at a nursery and got some great Mother’s Day deals.
It warms a mothers heart to see her kids shopping for a bargain.
But, I have to tell you all about that at another time. I have so much to do today and typically the clock is moving faster then I am.
The news of the week! The the thing I came to tell you.
Yesterday was my mothers birthday. One of the many first we have been through this year…..since….well, you know.
We had a little party. Stephen made dinner and I threw together…….THE CAKE!…….which is always home made and never boxed!
Then we where off to the baseball game.
 It was great!
We all went and really enjoyed the night. However, I do think  Auntie’s Jim enjoyed the night the most…
Do you recognize him?
He is Jimmy Cooney’s little boy…the famous baseball player.
Oh! Now you see it. I just had to give you a little hint………That’s all.
