"... What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes." - James 4:14 Today would have been my sister's 47th birthday. It is hard to believe that she's been gone for so long. I miss her and at the same time I am so thankful to God that I had such a wonderful sister for the short time that she was here. She was a giver, giver of herself to others. She was absolutely beautiful! She had this personality that I can't describe folks were just attracted to her. Everyone wanted to... Continue reading

I know exactly what you're talking about. I'm currently working through clearing out the clutter both the physical and the mental clutter. I know that once the clutter is gone I can think more clearly and make wise decisions but sometimes it can be overwhelming when I take inventory of it all. What I do is break down stuff into super small steps and work 20 minutes at a time on a certain project then give myself a break. I'm a work in process. Never seen "Baby Daddy" on Netflix. I've been watching "Leverage" on Netflix (that's my current time waster), really good show.

Babies are so precious. The smells, the giggles, cooing and the cries all so precious. I know a few new moms and moms-to-be and I am overjoyed with the many blessings coming their way with a little one in the house. I've been wanting to do something special and unique for them so I went to my local fabric store and purchased a pretty flannel fat quarters pack, fired up the sewing machine and made Burp Cloths. There are several tutorials online. I used a simple technique of cutting the fat quarter in half matching two different patterns, sew them... Continue reading

A little note of encouragement for those who need it today…. Have faith, better still have The God kind of faith. This faith believes, speaks, and acts. You must first KNOW God’s words. Read it. Study it. Ponder. Meditate. Pray about it. Talk about it. This is how you get God’s word into you mind and your heart. Now believe God’s word. Believe what God says in His word about you, your situation, your family, your circumstance. Believe that God loves you, it is in His Word. Believe that God has forgiven you when you’ve repented, that’s in His Word... Continue reading

Been a little quiet on this blog lately, though today I thought that I'd share some random thoughts/happenings... Freddie's been sick lately, got a doctor's appointment this afternoon I hate autism Watching my little guy have a seizure scares me EVERY SINGLE TIME I'm enjoying the warmer weather. Flower garden in the front of the house is finished and looks fabulous. Vegetable plants are ready to go in... Still deciding on a fence for the veggies Finn (our service dog) likes to swing from our tree (he's funny) Started exercising at home, not a habit yet, but it will be... Continue reading

I just ordered my copy on Amazon. Congrats!
I would have loved being able to sleep uninterrupted (didn't happen) and a long bath all to myself... Hmmmm... maybe next year.

That arrangement is beautiful. My hubby gave me a stargazer lily plant that smell divine (I will plant it this weekend). My mother in law came over and my hubby spoiled us both with dinner, movies, and cleaning. It was a relaxing day. My mommy is out of town at my niece's college graduation (I'm so happy for her), so I didn't get to see her on Sunday but I'm planning something very special for when she returns home this week.

I put up a wreath and a few decorations around the house. We're going to my aunts house for dinner (I'm bringing a cinnamon pie).

My son was the FOX news (local station) last night. Take a look. Brookfield Zoo had an Autism Awareness Day yesterday that we attended. Freddie just loves being at the zoo. The weather was perfect, here are some pictures of our fun-filled day. As soon as we arrive we head to Freddie's favorite place in the zoo, The Living Coast, as you can see he's just getting ready to make a run for it I think that he would stay here the whole day if we let him. This is the only picture that came out clear. Couldn't use my... Continue reading

Our Spring Break did not go according to my plans. I planned a fun-filled week for us, signed my son up for a spring break camp in the morning, afternoons he’d still have therapy but I included lots of fun early evening activities such as the Children’s Museum, playdates, the mall, and lots to time outside with Finn. The Sunday before our spring break began my little guy woke up vomiting with a high temperature. Since he is seizure prone we kept him home from church and spent the day trying to get his temperature down. I was unsuccessful, we... Continue reading

My handsome little guy turned 4 last Wednesday, he woke up super early to open up a few of his gifts, and he giggled like crazy when I sang Happy Birthday. His big birthday gift was his service dog (Finn), I wrote about him in a previous post. Our parents came over this weekend to celebrate with gifts galore this Larry hat seems to be his favorite so far. He looked so stinking cute wearing his new hat all day. He was more interested in the Buzz Lightyear birthday candle than this caramel cake (more for me). Today though my... Continue reading

This week we added a new member to the Greenwood household. A service dog, named Finn. His job is to help/aide our precious little guy (our son has a diagnosis of autism and seizure disorder). Last year while at a Special Needs Expo there was an organization with service dogs, during her demonstration she talked about how these dogs can be used to keep our kids safe, she gave us the example of a child who wanders, is nonverbal with epilepsy. At the time I thought that her presentation was interesting and I filed the information in my head just... Continue reading
