The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

My baby is offically a 1st grader....

It has been a week today since Sam's Kindergarten graduation.... already a week has passed! I mean every day it seems like time just keeps slipping away faster & faster!! So, I am just now getting around to posting this.... this time of year is just SO busy!! Anyways my baby graduated!! It was so bittersweet. I am so proud of him, all that he has learned this year, how big he has gotten yet so so so sad to know I wont ever get this time with him back. In a blink of an eye I will be looking at him in that cap & gown as he graduates high school. So I am just trying to treasure, stop & enjoy, and make a big deal out of all of these moments. The graduation ceremony was great. They sang some very cute songs... "Days of the Week", "Special Me", "My Country Tis of thee".... I made it through the whole thing without shedding a tear and then when I got home and was putting him to bed...... I lost it!!! He hasnt seen me cry to often but I couldnt hold it back anymore. We read " I knew you could" (the little engine that could) and I could hardly even read it, it was so sweet, he kept wiping the tears off my cheeks and kept saying "Im always gonna be your baby mom". Sam I am so very proud of you!! I hope your 1st grade year is as good as your "K" year if not better. Want to share the lyrics to this song.... so what I am feeling right now!! Congratulations baby =)

Find Your Wings ~ Mark Harris

It's only for a moment you are mine to hold
The plans that heaven has for you
Will all too soon unfold
So many different prayers I'll pray
For all that you might do
But most of all I'll want to know
You're walking in the truth
And If I never told you
I want you to know
As I watch you grow
I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things
I'm here for you whatever this life brings
So let my love give you roots
And help you find your wings
May passion be the wind
That leads you through your days
And may conviction keep you strong
Guide you on your way
May there be many moments
That make your life so sweet
Oh, but more than memories
It's not living if you don't reach for the sky
I'll have tears as you take off
But I'll cheer as you fly
