Time.....keeps on ticking..into the future.


Rylee loves to read to Regan. Regan loves Rylee. So it all works out. What a blessing summer is. I love it because I feel like we get to be a family more because there seems to be more time. This summer is a slower pace for us. Lots of setting out side, working in the yard, going for walks, riding bikes....time is a good thing when you have plenty of it. I think when you almost lose someone you appreciate the time you have with them more....you just appreciate more. We all have or moments through out the day that we spend special "time" with her. Regan has a slowing affect on time. Her pace is slow..she drags you into it with her. Sometimes you go easily then other times more kicking and screaming.

My parents are here visiting. It is always great when they are here. Rylee is happy because Papa buys her Bologna...I won't. Mom took Ryder and Rylee to see Shreck III. She also introduced them to the ADAM'S Family. My kids think it is so funny. Papa and Nana are also enjoying playing Wii. Again we have time together. We went to the pool yesterday and are cleaning out some over grown flowers on the west side of my house. It is hard work but rewarding. My legs hurt from the pulling and squatting. But it is time to get it cleaned out.

We also get time next week with some good friends from Dallas. We look forward to that time. It is always full of laughter. The "oh my I could wet my pants" kind.

"There's an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth: A right time for birth and another for death, A right time to plant and another to reap, A right time to kill and another to heal, A right time to destroy and another to construct, A right time to cry and another to laugh, A right time to lament and another to cheer, A right time to make love and another to abstain, A right time to embrace and another to part, A right time to search and another to count your losses, A right time to hold on and another to let go, A right time to rip out and another to mend, A right time to shut up and another to speak up, A right time to love and another to hate, A right time to wage war and another to make peace."
....I hope no matter how your spending your time you feel the favor of the almighty. .

Thanks for the inspiration, Chantell, on two levels. One, it gave me an idea for a blog. Two, it was a great reminder to me personally, because summers are so hard for me. Hannah misses her friends and is out of routine, which leads to other difficulties. I'm struggling to get my work hours in and still do the fun summer stuff with the family, etc. This was a great reminder to look for all the blessings summer brings. Thanks!

Chantell,
I love the tenderness and love I can see between your children. I hope to have the same love and respect with Claire and our new little man. I want to foster an environment of love and care for one another. We are thankful to see what is going on with your family, we check often and pray for you all.
Love, Courtney

Well I just read on your full 'About Me' profile that Rylee loves Amelia Bedelia! I loved her books when I was a kid! She makes me laugh! I hope she is sharing those books with the Regs. I love that image of Rylee reading with Regan. Sweet moments. Love you!
