It seems that I am down to blogging once a month.  I am at a time in my life where much is happening and yet I am needing more 
"observing" the moments time.  I WANT to blog more, yet I need this moment to sit and see also.
Thank you all for sharing the times of our lives and for your sweet comments.  I still follow what is going on in your lives and pray for you.

September brings remember what I am thankful for;

...a daddy that takes care of his family, even when that means using his fishing boat for water play for his children, and grandchildren, because the "lake play boat" had a horrible accident.

 My family who works together to overcome whatever storms come our way....we are never alone.

 This woman, my mother, and Gommy to many... she has taught me what real courage is; to fight cancer and LIVE, to have children when you were told you couldn't, to endure financial hardships that few have known, to pray for healing when crippling arthritis struck her, to walk through an accident that crushed her leg and to pray that someday she would ski again...
She is inspiration to all of us that is we love the LORD and are willing to fight the hard battles the LORD loves to give us the desire of our hearts.  

 This man was my little son so many years ago.  I am forever grateful that the LORD chose me to be his mother.

 This man is my brother...and if you ask me (or him), it isn't the easiest of jobs.  How I love him.  He is ALWAYS there for me, and protecting me.  He loves on me and the many nieces and nephews that I have given him.  I know that any time I need him, he will be there. 
 And this sweet one, my daughter (in law), Karlie.  I use to say that I was blessed with one blondie, Careese, and then the LORD sent us Karlie.  She adds so much to my life, and I thank the LORD so often for giving her to us.

 How wonderful is has been to see my children try new things and succeed.  But we could never do it with out our extended family.

 Jace helped his newest brother Clive learn to ski this year.  Clive's face says it all....

 I remember chances to rest, and see the clouds;

 times of playing games with precious family; and enjoying the gift of a car for Kalyn.
 The many conversations shared, as well had the fun had on our favorite dock...

And I am grateful for my little man who first learned to ski on the young ski helper, bought my my thoughtful Kim and Karla.

Guess what else the LORD blessed me with?


  1. A great husband! :) bless you Shonni! It looks like a year of great growth, bonding, and healing has taken place. Praise The Lord.

  2. So much to be thankful for...your family is just beautiful.
