What Makes My Heart Happy Week #3


Yes, my grandchildren always make my heart happy. I have 4 of them and another one due in May 2012!
It's just such an awesome thing to be a grandparent, I love it -all those sweet hugs & kisses after such a long time since my children were this little. It's so great!
I am blessed!:)

Friday Fill Ins

And...here we go!

1. It's easy to love my grandbabies.

2. Rarely do I use the phrase - my darling.

3. Once upon a time, I was young, now I'm not so young.

4. I only have a few chapters in the book I am reading and then I will be to ... the end.

5. What is going to happen to our nation?

6. I'm hoping things get better sooner than later.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to finishing up the book I've been reading or watch a movie, tomorrow my plans include doing something with paper - scrapbook or cardmaking, maybe cook something yummy and Sunday, I want to go to church & relax in the afternoon!

What Makes My Heart Happy Week #2

This picture makes me think of what makes my heart happy and that is a relationship with God through the sacrifice of his only son Jesus Christ. He is with me always no matter what and it can't be any better than that.

This photo was taken by my daughter Lori - she found some large nails laying on her porch from when their home was built and she took them and made this cross, took a photo and did some work with it in photoshop, that is her hand holding it. Such a neat photo that reminds me of Jesus' sacrifice for me and the grace that is mine every moment of every day.

What Makes My Heart Happy Week #1

I'm doing a challenge at www.haveyourwaywithpaper.com to post something that makes my heart happy, once a week for the month of October.
One of the things that makes my heart the happiest are my children, this is a picture of Randy & Lori taken last October. I don't get many pictures of these two together now that they are adults with families so I love this photo!
I am all about family and these two are my pride & joy, the apples of my eye! I love them beyond words and they always make my heart happy!:)

October Update.

October is my favorite month! I love that the air is cooler & crisper, the sun shines in a different place, one that I love, seems to make everything glow somehow. I love the sights & smells of this season. Makes me happy!

I started reading the last of the DragonSpell Series - DragonLight, I've enjoyed them but am a bit glad they are coming to an end, unlike I felt with the Harry Potter Series.

I have found another way to pass the time - Pinterest, I love this website, I am a little bit addicted I think. So much fun!

I made a yummy Pumpkin Dump Cake last night, so good. Maybe I will share the recipe.

Well - that's it for now. I must go and enjoy my first October Sunday Afternoon!:)
