Went to the beach on Sunday... 
Nice afternoon bike ride and lunch on the pier.
My girl made a cake for her friend's birthday.
It was a nice Sunday.

I guess I am posting once a week.  It has been a crazy week and posting pictures or even taking pictures is the last thing on my mind.

School is almost out for summer for my girl.  
She has one or two things left to do this next week. But, all her outside classes are complete.  Yay!  
Softball is over! Yay! We can have a resemblance of a normal life now.  For a second anyway.  

My boy came home yesterday.  School is out for him.  Yay!  We made it!  It was rough in the beginning but we, I mean "I' adjusted.  Glad to have him home for the summer. 

It has been a hot one these last two days.  I am officially adjusted to the weather here, so when it bares any resemblance of the desert weather I lived in for years, I know it is hot.  And it has been.  

But the biggest, saddest news is of my sweet friend Trish.  She is a young mom of 4 and has breast cancer.  It has now spread to several locations in her body.  I went out to see her this week. (she lives in my hometown). It was good to see her and she is so beautiful but... but is all I can say.  I am praying for a miracle.  Please join me in praying for her.  They need clarity of mind to know the next step for treatment.  Also, pray that Jesus would do a miracle in her life.  
He really already has done many miracles.  She is a sold out believer and is Heaven bound.  Praise Jesus!!  She is amazingly praising Jesus through this entire process.  
The one thing that really spoke to me this week when I was out there was the importance of telling people now how much they mean to you.  
My friend was overwhelmed with love from her church family and kept saying "I can't believe how much I am loved!"  Let's remember to tell the people in our lives how much we love them.

And with that I am off....
counting my blessings one by one...

730. My family.
731. My friends.
732. My health.
733. The body of Christ in action.
734. Witnessing transformed lives.
735. Jesus.....

I am finally posting...  
I think it is turning out to be a once a week post.  

My girlie girl had Spring Formal this week.  She looked so beautiful and grown up.  I keep telling my hubby "how can this be?"  It seems like she should still be in diapers.  I know that is how I look at her sometime.  But she is not.  I digress. 

Did I tell you how much my girl love softball?  Well, her team was in the playoffs over the weekend and it happened to be on the same night as formal.  What was she to do?  Formal started at 6:00 and game was at 7:00.  What any girl that loves her sport would do - leave formal, change into softball uniform, go to game and then go back to formal after game!  She was a trooper.  All smiles, even when they lost the game. Then lost last night and are now out of playoffs.   This really stinks for this team because they won the season but lost in the playoffs.  Ugh!  Heart breaker...
Character counts with this girl and she did not want to let her team down.  

Many Blessings,
