Well the packing has started and the going through the stuff ...we have been in this home for 17 years.The kids have been helping and some of the guys from where Barry works...which is awesome. Thanks guys...I have a wrecked knee so I can't help him much and Glen , DJ, Ron, and Randy & Dave have been helping when they can ..everybody works so you know times don't always match up ...but when they do ..their hands and muscles have been welcome. We always get a kick out of those that are waiting in the sidelines ..waiting for the free stuff ...just cause. Or arrive to get it and then oh ya can't help ..must run . And we have the one's that would love to help us out ..but don't live here....but wish they did or could even visit to help out .
We want to thank you guys for even thinking about the help and the thought .
we love you .(next time Neti your in charge of the yard sale ..hehehe)they wanted to came and help out..but they leave for their awesome holiday next week....but thanks again for the offer.
This is another flower that blooms in my garden...these are one of my favorite
flowers ..the columbine.
I can honestly say the one thing I will miss the most is our garden
it is just now starting to bloom and fill with color.

This Iris is one that we got years ago from Barry's Auntie Glady's ..I was able to give Neti some so it will stay in our I won't have my any more.

Happy Mother's Day
When God set the world in place,
when He hung the stars up in space,
when He made the land and the sea,
then He made you and me.
He sat back and saw all that was good,
He saw things to be as they should.
Just one more blessing He had in store;
He created a mother, but whatever for?
He knew a mother would have a special place
to shine His reflection on her child's face.
A mother will walk the extra mile
just to see her children smile.
She'll work her fingers to the bone
to make a house into a home.
A mother is there to teach and guide,
a mother will stay right by your side.
She'll be there through your pain and strife,
she'll stay constant in your life.
A mother will lend a helping hand
until you have the strength to stand.
She'll pick you up when you are down,
when you need a friend she'll stick around.
A mother is one who listens well,
will keep her word; will never tell.
A mother never pokes or pries
but stands quietly by your side,
giving you the strength you need,
encouraging you to succeed.
A mother is one who can be strong
when you need someone to lean on.
You're more than a mother to me;
a reflection of Him in your face I see,
a love that knows no boundaries.
I'm glad that you chose to be
all this and more to me.
You share a love that knows no end,
you're more than my mother,
you are my friend.

And to those of you I don't have pictures of to put on my Mother's Day slideshow ..I pray the Lord Bless you and yours ....XOXOXOXXOX

Need to get away today ...selling a home takes a lot out of a person ...I have ask that if it is to be and with the Lord's blessing ..then please let it sell...and let me have a peace about it. I want Barry and I do the dream we have talked about for so long ...but hearing that my home is not a this or that ..has taken it's toll on me ..needed this drive to clear the head...
I came about this waterfall ..the water is coming from nowhere...and watering the grass and flowers around it ..and flowing down to the river.

I never realize that so many neat and awesome things were up behind us in the hills
then I came to a farm who had these cute guy ....makes me realize what adventures Barry and I will have and what Melissa will get to see also.

Was trying to be a photographer with this flower...hehehehe
remember I said that stream was flowing to the river ...well the river is rising fast ...the snow is melting and the land is turning is nice to see. It makes you think of what the Lord must of been thinking when he made the earth ...a garden of beauty, a place of peace. Something I have been searching for ...for a very long time.

the words "SOMEDAY"and "IF ONLY"
here is one of the inserts she used

"It's been said that the saddest word in our language is someday. Why? Because someday eventually turns into "if only." And "if onlys" are the result of time you can't recoup: "If only we would have made more free time." "If only we would have taken that trip." "If only we would have built that porch." "If only...

so please if you get a chance check her site out and leave her a hug...

for the someday is today ......

Read Each One Carefully and Think About It a Second or Two

1. I like you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you.

2. No man or woman is worth your tears, and the one who is, won't make you cry.

3. Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

4. A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.

5. The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside them knowing you can't have them.

6. Never frown, even when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile.

7. To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.

8. Don't waste your time on a man/woman, who isn't willing to waste their time on you.

9. Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet the person, we will know how to be grateful.

10. Don't cry because it is over , smile because it happened.

11. There's always going to be people that hurt you so what you have to do is keep on trusting and just be more careful about who you trust next time around.

12. Make yourself a better person and know who you are before you try and know someone else and expect them to know you.

13. Don't try so hard, the best things come when you least expect them to.

Little Instructions for Happiness
Stay loose -- learn to watch snails.
Make little signs that say "yes".
Make friends with freedom and uncertainty.
Cry during movies.
Giggle with children.
Swing as high as you can.
Do it for love.
Take lots of naps.
Laugh a lot.
Hug trees.
Write letters.
Celebrate every gorgeous moment.
Read every day.
Do it now.
Listen to those older than you are.
Entertain your inner child.
Believe in magic.

As some of you know we have our home up for sale ...we have been in this home for
17 years or more has been a hard road for me ...some times
wondering why our home as not sold being angry at God for how come ..why not???
I was blaming God for still be here ...but something tells me that somewhere
in my heart God knows ..I am not total sure ...the memories garden of peace
of our granddaughter and her time here....this
has been our home ..yes we have a beautiful new fifth wheel home ...
we have dreams ...but one thing I keep forgetting ..I said in God's time ...
Barry and I would get to full fill our dream..of traveling and living in the new home .
When God knows I have made peace within me to move on and to make friends with freedom and uncertainty.
He has help me through so much ..I must learn and stand that it will be the right time
for all
So please keeps those prayers coming and I thank all of you ...
( Candy , Barb, Mindi for reminding me there is a reason )
This was on my sis Barb blog and it made sense
I want to encourage you... if you've found my blog for the first time, or if you're a regular here, I just want to give you a hope that no matter what your situation that you're never alone. Our God wants something better for you - don't let this world get you down. Lay your burdens down - let the one who created you carry them for you!
