Prickly life.

Life can be prickly sometimes. Like a desert prickly cactus. Since they grow in the hot, waterless places, they have long deep roots to be able to reach the deep water underground. I believe this is one of the Joshua Trees, that we passed driving in hot, windy Arizona. Sometime we walk through death of a loved one in our life, but there is always life around a corner.
When life is prickly, windy and dry... don't worry, there is always hope, an oasis of green, peace and water in the near future, where our feet can find rest and refreshment.

I count my blessings when my heart feels sad.... there is so much beauty, so much sweetness around me, but I am sad that I have to go back to work after my maternity leave has ended. My little one is used to fall asleep as he nurses, his little chubby fingers holding on to my shirt. I would rather stay home and be a homemaker, then a full time employee at a large company. But I have hope that One day my husband will have a good job, and I will stay home with my little ones. Its a simple hope, and while we live we always can hope. Hope, imagine it in your future, keep positive, and it will happen. We live by faith and not by facts. God does amazing things even now. My sadness is nothing compared to some families I read about. My heart and prayer goes to this family:

Is it June already?

Wow, June came fast this year. Well this whole year is going super fast. We went to visit my parents on a long road trip all the way to MO. It was nice to see my family, my parents, their new house that they built almost by themselves. On our way back we stopped at the CA ocean, which was nice to relax before we returned to our every day life. Here was a picture of almost all of us together. My parents have 11 grand kids so far!
My girls loved playing with the white puppy.
Seeing the chickens, the ducks and collecting the eggs was an exciting thing for us city folks..:)
Some of the girl cousins sitting together, enjoying ice cream.
All together it was a good trip, and we plan to see all the family again in the near future...:)
