Done.... Graduation.

i promise to edit this and add more to this. But had to let all my readers (hi cathy and ashlie) know it is finished! Yes, Molly is officially a college freshman! Wow. She is "fresh" out of High School, but a wo"man".
Her Salutatorian speech rocked the house. (okay i am the mom) But the admin. said it was the most encouraging, appreciative, gracious talk they had heard! But before she gave it, she looked like she was going to give birth, she was breathing so hard!

but more later....i just wanted to tell you MOLLY GRADUATED---with High Honors as Salutatorian of her class of 2010!

back riding again...

Hope you all (mom's) had a great day yesterday. I did. Just having my girls home was the blessing. They joke with me because all i ever ask for is "Quality time" (and when molly says it she does the quotes with her hands!!funny girl)

We did church Sat. night and I watched church Sunday, because Molly was in a drama. Ah..she is so gifted. She says she can do that but very nervous to give her H.S. grad. speech. She will feel better when it is written. That is this week! Prayers.

After Molly got home we did lunch at Jason's Deli. Fun. Came home and hung out with the girls. They gave me some cute presents (even though...i didn't ask) Thanks to big sis Megs who compiles all the gifts and card and lets molly sign it! But the gifts were very thoughtful. Megs knows her mom. Molly does too...because she wrote me a letter. loved it. cherish it. cherish any thing my girls give me, do for me, or don't do for me. They are my gift from God.

After Megs left, i got on my bike (i love it) and rode. I was determined to stay on it til i knew megs was home safely. I rode 20 MILES!!! Which i have been doing on avg. (since the shoulder ligament tear) 12-14 miles. I have done 20 before (many times) but not since i injured my shoulder. It took over an hour and half, but not bad for me!

So anyway. thanks for reading my blog. hope i don't put you to sleep.

God is good. His Grace is sufficient. He lets me carry my burdens to Him and prays I don't pick them back up again. He is still teaching me that lesson!

God Bless You, He already is me!

She was GORGEOUS...

Hey there.
I just keep humming the song "butterfly kisses" in my head as i recap, Molly and prom last night. She was stunning beyond words. Thanks to Chelsea Ferguson, family friend who did her hair and makeup. It was very vintage, Audrey Hepburn looking. I will attach a picture as soon as i can figure it out. But it was a day every mom enjoys...playing dress up with their daughters...except this time it was for real!

Her date, Jacob, is a fine young man. A Godly man with Godly parents. We have been praying for someone like him to enter Molly's life and God provided. They are almost at the one year mark. He treated the King's Daughter like a princess!

It was all magical, in Molly's words went waaaay to fast! Doesn't all special moments/treasured times do that...go to fast.

So picture coming soon.

Happy "mom's" day to you mom's out there! and to the special mom's in heaven. "happy Mom's Day" Mom, i miss you very much. Did you see Molly?

Prom count down

short one. Prom is tomorrow. so no real countdown. just been happening for over 2 months and i have not blogged about it all. i am excited for molly. the baseball season ended (sad) so now she and Jacob can go to prom. YEAH. she looks like a Kathrine Hepburn Princess in her dress. Another reality that my little girl is growing up...hard on mom's. Especially as Mom's (do NOT like to be called "mother") Day approaches.

I miss mom. I wish she could see molly. I know she would have driven up here to see her. I know my craft/office room would still have a bed in it. No more guest. No need for a bed. Love my "retreat" room (craft/office room)

Okay. Picture will be posted thank to Megan.

Today is National Day of Prayer, but someone said "isn't everyday that?" YES.

happy mom's day to all you mom's! if your mom is still around CALL HER, HUG HER, TELL HER YOU LOVE HER...cherish every moment. Because it can be taken in a moment!

life is precious. God is precious and my KING!

hugs to you all.
