“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

Letting Go

Handmade wedding alter



... of my baby girl.  This is the last week before her father walks her down the isle (er ... side of home and a makeshift isle on our lawn).  Having a wedding is exciting .. and having it at home is hectically exciting and busy.  She's had some help ... but the majority of work has been done by her.  She's got a country sign saying just about anything needing explaining.





We're praying for a God centered marriage; a good foundation to build the start to their family.

Last night I gave her the 'last' ... 'I'm you're mother, so do what I say' command.   Ann had been on her feet all day, was in a bit of pain from a previous vehicle accident, when I told her to just 'sit down and relax .. and no, you can't run to the store.  Whatever you think you need can wait until tomorrow' ... 

Soon she will leave her father and mother and form her own family unit with her new husband.
