I love Hallmark’s slogan,

“Life is a Special Occasion.”

Who needs a reason to celebrate with sparkling juice and chocolate chip cookies?!

Our favorite games and toys are reason enough to celebrate!

I adore his freckly nose and competitiveness!  He beat me at Goldilocks & the Three Bears and I beat him at Memory (which is a surprise because I the worst short-term memory ever!!)

Dear God,

Thank you for your constant presence in my life.  

I see Your love in the eyes of my children.   I hear Your love in their laughter.  

Thank you for Your tender arms that hold us during celebrations

and sad times and all the times in between.
