Catch up-MIL day, Making your home a haven and Autumn through my eyes!



Ever get so busy and before you realize you are behind on everything?  That is how I am feeling right now.  I saw this graphic and thought it was perfect.
So here goes, first I am catching up on my Autumn Through My Eyes! Days 19-22

Baby Piper born this October day

 Also I am sure many of you have never heard of Mother-in-law's day and I had not either until the first year my son and his wife were married.  It is the last Sunday in October each year.  My Daughter-in-law has never missed remembering me or the day.  This year she gave me these adorable salt & pepper shakers.  I collect them and I love all things pumpkin so they are perfect for me as she is for our family.


Also this is the last week for the Make your Home a Haven challenge for this year.

This week’s challenge:
Focus on the kitchen, the heart of the home.
Cook things with pleasant aromas like homemade bread, pies, and cookies. Don’t wait to have a reason to make something special – do it simply to show love to your family. Invite your kids and/or hubby to cook along side of you – make memories in the kitchen – test tasting, being creative, laughing and loving. Remember the importance of dinner time around the table as a family.  Work on showing love, goodness and faithfulness to your family this week.
I hope your candle is still burning, the music is playing, and you are spending time showing your family they are special, whether it is by playing some games, watching a movie while snuggled together or baking them a special treat.  The challenge is over for this year but it is one I plan to try and continue all through out the year with my family.
God bless and I hope you have enjoyed catching up with me.

Happy 16th Birthday Stephen Austin Love!

From this little baby born on April 7, 1995 to the wonderful young man you have became April 7, 2011 Moma and Daddy were so blessed the day you were born and grow more blessed with each passing year.  I pray God will richly bless you this year.  Let Him be your guide and follow Him and do His will and you will be right where you need to be.  We love you! God bless, Moma & Daddy

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.  
God bless,
Pat


Does Anyone? And a giveaway!

Sometimes I wonder does anyone even read here.  I wonder if this blogs time has come and gone.  I sometimes think, well I will just write for me and use it like a diary of sorts.  I am just not sure what to do.  I really enjoy writing the blog but......
     I decided I am going to continue for at least the month of February and see what happens.  Since February is the month of love and my last name is "Love" and I am trying to decide if I love this blog anymore, I am going to to have a "Love" giveaway. All you have to do to be entered to have a chance to win is leave a comment on this post on my blog.  I will choose a winner from all the comments.


Until next time or until I choose a winner of the giveaway, Pat
