The good things in life...

My handsome and wonderfully talented teen. He used to play GI Joes with his best friend, Matt, and they would scamper back and forth across the street from Matt's house to our house and back again. Loved Legos, smoothies at the neighborhood coffee shop, roller blading and bicycling. We had a lemon tree in our yard, and Nature Boy was outgoing and industrious enough to make money selling them at the coffee shop. He would merchandise them in shiny foil boxes, wrapped in raffia or satin cord, and sell 3 lemons in a box for about $6.00. He and Matt also ran a lemonade stand and sold fresh squeezed juice in the front yard to the neighborhood passersby. He is an artist, and is currently studying animation. These days he is still my sweet boy, despite being a teenager and the front man in his punk band (never would have thought those words would come from me in that order, as I never cared for punk music)!

The beautiful Little Miss, Amilia. Loves animals of any kind, and loves to look at animal toys on the internet. She has recently learned how to navigate some of her favorite sites on her own, and watch out! She is SO into the Dog Whisperer and It's Me or The Dog. Afraid of monsters and the dark. She is also a talented young artist, story teller, and budding musician. My talented and selfless spouse. Best friends since the day we met, and always happy to be together, we are so blessed to have found each other. He feeds us when we are hungry, tells us stories when we are bored, draws us pictures when we want cheering up, sings to us, plays guitar, makes us laugh, stokes the fire when we are cold, and all with smiling eyes.

Whatever might happen in our daily existence, the important things are right here at home. Blessings often come in the form of family and love. Let us always remember these good things in life...
