His Mercies Are New Every Morning!

It's a brand new week. A fresh start! Another beautiful day is forecast and lots to be done.

Last week was a hard one for us. Tragedy struck our daughter's high school for a second time in three months. Four of her classmates have been killed in needless accidents. When will they learn that alcohol and driving (especially at such high speeds) do not mix? It is a hard lesson for those left behind that these kids are not invincible. They are not untouchable. It was a very hard week.

On a happier note, I just have to brag about my sweet hubby. He is an amazing artist. He works with colored pencils and, if I may repeat myself, is amazing! You can check out his website here. He has been working on pictures of our sweet kids. Here are our oldest and our youngest.

He is just beginning on our other son's drawing. For those of you who know our sweet kid #1 you will agree that this is sooooo him. Such a perfect expression. I just love it! And then, our baby - she's just a beautiful person - inside and out. I can't wait to have all three framed and hanging in our entryway. Their pictures, that is, although there were days when they were growing up when I would have liked to hang them by their toes!! Now though, I'm so proud to be their mama.

Thanks for stopping by!
