A rainy Friday night. I remember when I was a kid it was a major treat to go to town and rent a video player and a movie for the evening. I want my kids to grow up and remember the fun ways that we passed the rainy days as a family. This weekend we tried our hand at a family game of Uno attack, which even Thea really enjoyed as well as movie night. What is a movie night without popcorn (with M&M’s mixed in even!) Don’t mind the dirty face, Thea sure didn’t.
"We are not put on this earth for ourselves, but are placed here for each other. If you are always there for others, then in time of need, someone will be there for you.

"What I want to say to you is that sometimes life catches you by surprise and you feel unequipped to handle what it brings you, but every bit of life you've lived before that moment equips you to live through it. That's what I would give to you."
-Fanni Victoria Green-Lemons (talking to her daughter)
If there is any secret to this life I live, this is it: the sound of what cannot be seen sings within everything that can, there is nothing more to it than that.
"The most important thing she'd learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one."
