Happy Birthday to you....

Today was Victoria's third birthday. She has been waiting for this day for the last year :) She wanted a princess birthday, so I made a princess cake and she dressed up and wore a crown. She was so excited!! Unfortunately, an emergency came up with Angel's work and he had to leave. Our neighbors shared lunch with us and helped us to celebrate Victoria's 3rd Birthday. Here are two pictures from today.

My little sister...

I just had to post how proud I am of my little sister....ok, she's not that little (she's 31) but she is my younger and only sister. Last week my sister and her family were on their way from PA to Myrtle Beach, SC where she and her husband were running their first half marathon. On Saturday morning at 6:30AM, they were off. Just over 2 1/2 hours later, she completed the half marathon.... and I AM VERY PROUD OF HER!!! This was her first race that she had entered. Her dream is to do a full marathon but the half marathon is a good start. Congratulations to both Natalie and Brent (yes he ran too)!

Do you have a dream in your heart that seems to unattainable to reach? Put a plan on paper with some short term goals that will get you to that larger, long term goal. Trust God and lean on Him. With God on your side, nothing is impossible.

Visit with an old friend

I think we are getting into the swing of things here in Texas. Enough so that we took a drive this past Saturday to visit an old friend.....not that she is old (but she is older than me :) ) Ronda and her husband Mike moved to San Antonio TX about 2 1/2 years ago and since Fort Hood is less than 3 hours away, we met for lunch. It is always nice to reconnect with those who were a part of our lives but maybe due to circumstances or distance, we don't get to see very often. Since Ronda left PA for Texas, we have seen her once a year. I am hoping that since she is so close, we'll be able to get together often.

Here are two pictures from Saturday. One of the kids and one of Ronda and I. Is there someone in your life that you have not seen or talked to in quite some time? Maybe an old friend or relative? Give them a call today or send them a card. Be an encourager in their life and see what God does in yours.
