...who loved the mountains so much that she left her home in Texas to move to Colorado where she could be closer to them.
Besides being in love with the mountains, this girl loved children and couldn’t wait to be a mommy. The Lord provided the perfect man to become her husband who also loved the beauty in the mountains and the blessing of children.
For Christmas' and birthdays we ask for camping things so that we can continue to go up in the mountains together.
We are asked often “Isn’t it a lot of work to go camping with so many children?” As I shared in the“O.K. sooooo...” post, YES! It is. And we have had some difficult things happen (which, sorry that I wasn’t clear in that post...no, all those hard things didn’t happen all on this last camping trip. They have happened at different times over the last few years.)
So, why do we do it?
When we meet people in the mountains and they say “Wow, we can’t believe that you are up here with all of those children”, I usually just smile and say “Yes, it is very special that we can bring our children up here to enjoy the beauty of the mountains”.
And it is worth it all!
