Where I Come From

Some things are buried deep within and are part of who we are.
  It's good, it's bad,  it's beautiful, it's who we are.
  We share it, we respect it, we try to understand it and grow from it...
It's who we are.

The familiar still makes me tap my foot and lift my head high.

I joyfully explored the Saturday morning Farmers Market on the square of Murfreesboro, Tennessee the last time I was in town.  Thought you might like to go and take a look at small town living...although  M'boro isn't so small anymore, it's where I come from.

Berly's Having a Birthday!

Thanks for bringing so much joy into our lives each and every single day.
You grow sweeter with each passing year.  
I am so lucky God gave me you.
Happy Birthday, Kimberly!
September 19, 1966 was a very good year!
I love you baby girl.

A passing thought...

I remember when they were little; well, Mike, Kim, then Kate (18 years later).  I thought it couldn't be any better, until we all finely became a real family...Mary, Joe and Issy, Tom, Andrew, Emily and William, Shannon, Molly, Ford and Morgan, Kristin, Alan, Keegan and Aidan, Ben and Adrienne, with Terrence at the head.  That's when I found out that, "Love is the only thing you get more of by giving it away".  We EXPLODED!...and we are all the better for it.  My babies have been given a good family and for this I am so very grateful.

My love is too big for words.

Issy turns TWELVE

A big shout out to ISSY for a very, very Happy Birthday!  

You are so full of life, talent, accomplishments and joy.  We are so lucky to have you as part of us.  Keep growing as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside and just watch what will happen!   


"they didn’t have you where I come from
never knew the best was yet to come
life began when I saw your face
and I hear your laugh like a serenade
how long do you want to be loved
is forever enough, is forever enough
how long do you want to be loved
is forever enough
cause I’m never, never giving you up"…

On September 4th, Ben and Adrienne celebrated their 1st wedding anniversary by renewing their vows and making their marriage and commitment to each other legal in the sight of the law.  
Congratulations and Happy Anniversary to Ben and Adrienne!
  Happy Anniversary wishes go out to Kristin and Alan as well!
