Partnering with my husband in life, parenting, work and serving is definitely wonderful. He is my favorite.

And today they were back out there with Marian coaching Emily in the sport. 
They were out there over an hour and a half!!

MIRACLES happening here.
Today I had to stop and take a picture on the side of the road of a
redbud blooming. 
I love it when the redbuds start to bloom!
That's a beautiful picture of hope.
In the midst of bare trees and cool temperatures we see splashes of Spring appearing.
Makes me look twice every time and every time I have
I don't know if the last couple of days have been just a fluke
or if we are really reaching a turning point,
but just like those redbuds blooming gives us hope of Spring,
my hope is renewed that we are becoming
