Nothing says " I love You" Like a beautiful bouquet of spring flowers.
Gardenias are my favorite.  Right now you can smell their sweet fragrence all over my house!

I bought a dress yesterday this same beautiful color of pink.

Thanks for the flowers Sally, I love you too!

Remember this song?

Yeah she took the moon over Georgia
She'd rather have a millions stars in the sky than a gold mine

She took the moon over Georgia,
when it came down to his world or mine
She took the moon over Georgia

Been humming that song ever since I saw this full moon on the way home.
Shanandoah sang it and sang it well.
Love that song

Bright futures

Just yesterday my sweet girls had chubby little cheeks like this....

They sang their little hearts out like this.........

Time changes everything.......

No chubby cheeks in sight, no angelic voices,
instead pretty girls, 
Grown up ideas
bright futures

Soon it will be just me and my babies daddy.....

Looks like my future is not half bad either!

It's almost over

today is the last full day of school...this week is the end.

The end of middle school for Ginny.

Leslie is done with everything but that last senior year.

Britt and Angie (my sweet coworkers) are almost gone for the whole summer.

Sleeping in is no more....I've got to keep summer hours and be to work at 8am.

It's strange how your life runs parallel with the school year.

Time to take is slow and easy....nothing like summer time....

Saturday was fun. My niece, Megan, is going to be a beautiful bride in about three weeks, and Leslie and Ginny are her bridesmaids. We celebrated with a bridesmaid brunch at the Swan Coach House on Saturday.

What is it about women that makes us love dressing up, and eating delicate food off tiny glass plates? We all love it. It makes us feel, well, girly.

Here's what I was thinking on Saturday.....

These girls are gorgeous!  It is going to be a beautiful wedding.  Look at their faces......oh to be young again....

With a gene pool like this... I see some beautiful Baggley babies in the future.

Everything is done.  The dresses are altered.  The photographer is booked.  The menu is set and all the invitations have gone out.  Enjoy these last few weeks Megan.  You are gonna be stunning in your white gown!

Consider the flowers

They don't worry about what to wear, and our Father dresses them in elegance, far more beautiful than a royal king!

I love this child

Hey Ginny-girl,
Why have you grown up so fast?
Remember when no one else could make you happy except me?
Remember when you used to love to whisper secrets in my ear?
Do you know that you are still my baby?

Orthostatic Hypotension

Whenever anyone asks me a medical question I love to answer in technical terms.  It makes me feel smart, and the person always asking the question, thinks that something is REALLY bad wrong.

Any ways, today, I experienced a phenomena known as orthostatic hypotension.  Here's what happened:
I ran 4 miles at the gym. Yeah Me!  I am trying to whip this tired old 41 yr old body into shape so I can at least complete the Tar Baby next month.  It was no exageration to say that I was shaking and sweating when I was through. There was literally no dry spot on my body, yeah and I smelled pretty good too.  I remembered that I needed to stop at Kroger ( my new most favorite grocery store) because of course I had a coupon for pizza sauce.

I thought I could get in and out without anyone seeing or smelling me.  So I sprinted in and ducked down the pizza aisle.  I bent down from the waist and shuffled round the jars, until I found the sauce I needed.  I popped up, spun around and everything went black.  You know that pins and needle feeling you get before you hit the ground? Yeah my fingers were tingly and the worst thing was I was thinking, "Man I don't want to fall down and knock stuff over", so I squatted down in the aisle, and put my head down.  It took about 3 sec for the blood to pump back in my foggy brain, but not fast enough for me to get up on my feet, and out of the way before a lady rolled over my finger with her cart. I'm not sure, but I think the throbbing from my finger was just the jolt I needed to clear my brain.  I wasn't taking any chances, I picked up a pack of M&M's just in case.

Orthostatic Hypotension. It'll get ya' if you are in too big of a hurry!

Bitterness, Freedom and Faithfulness

Last night I talked to a dear friend for about an hour.  She is one of those people that lives far away, has a busy life like me, and when we talk we get right to the point.  She wanted me to pray about a situation in her life.  Mostly she wanted me to pray for her, she is struggling not to be bitter.

Bitterness, it'll kill you. I know. I've battled that ugly destructive demon in my life....many times.  I want her to know that digging up bitterness in her life is not easy, in fact, it's one of the hardest things you'll ever do, but once that root is out of your heart, you are free!

Free to see that person and smile.

Free not to "go there" in your mind anymore.

Free to wish good things in their life.

Free to ask God to bless them.

Free to enjoy every good and perfect thing God has waiting for you.

I am enjoying a season of freedom in my life.  I know that this won't last forever. I know that one day, I'll have to gear up for battle against bitterness...again. But for today, I love the easy flow of life. I love knowing that my heart feels like good rich soil.    I love seeing the fruit of obedience beginning to bloom. He is faithful to do everything He says He will do. His mercies never fail, they are new every morning! Great is your faithfulness to me!

Random things about my week

This has been a random week, with many random things combining to define my life......

1) I have a great husband. Not perfect, but then again, neither am I. So this imperfect union has made a pretty good team.  Mostly, I trust him. That is huge in the ballgame of life.

2)When I am gone every night of the week my house falls apart, my family is eating granola bars or cake for supper, I feel like I am ready to explode.

3)Working out at the gym is alot more fun than getting chased by the neighbor dog.  I really like working out with overweight, forty year old women alot better than size 2 college girls with long blond hair.

4)I will miss my girls (coworkers Angie and Britt)  It's only a few short days and they will be off for the summer and that always makes me a little blue....

5) I'm ready to go back to school, but not so sure it should be nursing......thinking about expanding my horizons.....

6)There are people you see everyday, who smile and laugh, and inside they are falling apart, and all they want is for you to ask them how they really are.

There's always family

Tonight, I am sitting in my SIL's bedroom to update with a new post and I am thinking about how much I love family. We are celebrating my niece's upcoming wedding, so today has been filled with conversations about family, love and marriage.

We went to see my niece's new home, which absolutely adorable. It reminded me that about 19 years ago, Wayne and I started out our life in our own little love nest.  I think that part of the joy of  our early married life was not just the wedding, but the whole concept of married life. When you don't cohabitate before marriage, there is the mystery of learning to live with each other. (Some mysteries remain unsolved)  I remember a few days before we got married, Wayne was taking me home, and he told me "I'm tired of going home by myself. I'll be glad when we don't have to say goodbye."
This many years later, I hate to be away from him for very long.  A few days is not too big of a deal, but by day 3, I want him near me.  He's my best friend!

Megan you will love your wedding day, but living with your best friend in your new love nest is the best part of the days to come!
