Complete Joy


It doesn't get any better than this.

    Thanks, from the bottom of my heart, to everyone who encourages & loves my family.  I have cried sooo many tears of joy reading your comments on my last post about Annie's bracelets.  I am still getting around to everyone to thank you all. When I started blogging I never dreamed I would find such dear friends.  But, I have...& that, dear friend, is you.

John 15:10-12
    If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.

I concur totally. It is so amazing to find such kindred spirits in this crazy big world. I started bloging when I had a web made for the shop. Said to one of the ladies that helps me in the store, that I would just get it going and then she could take over...LOL...must say selfishly, I could never give this over to anyone as it has become far to dear to me. MY heart sings when I visit sites such of yours...thank you for this gift...smile on Rosie

Go Bo!
It's a joy to read stories of other family life, similar to our own, but somewhere else in the world. My children too love to hear about Annie, Bo and Rocco, especially Bo's cheeky antics, as we have our own almost identical little mischief maker, Mr Sonney Bobbins :)

They call me "Deb" said...

Oh Libbie....
My husband and I did our shopping over the weekend and because we live in a rural area, we couldn't find Good Housekeeping anywhere!
But when drove to another county to go visit my Mom for Mother's Day, we stopped in at a K-Mart to see if they had one and THEY DID!!!
While standing in line to pay for it, I showed my husband the photos and article and we 'Ooooo'd and Awwwww'd' over it right there in the store.
Do you have any idea how blessed WE are to be able to read your stories about a beautiful family that so touches our hearts?
Let's face it - your blog was wonderful enough - but after the magazine article - we ALL wanna adopt you and your family. lol
Hugs and great blessings,
Deb

So Bo traded in his superhero cape for the bat for a day, too cute! I feel the same way about blogging, and you my friend are at the top of my list! I love all of your stories and pics of your sweet family, thanks for sharing! I got my Womans Day and I loved it, You my friend are now a published author! I hope your Mothers Day was wonderful, it certainly looks like it was, Theresa p.s. we had grapes and cheese stuck on pompom toothpicks yesterday for lunch courtesy of Hannah the toothpicks made them taste extra delicious!

Bo's expression is absolutley priceless ~ my daughter used a similar happy photo of my granddaughter on her Christmas cards this year with a caption that said "May the spirit of the season bring you Uncontainable Joy".
That's what Bo has ~ "uncontainable joy!"

PS. I got my copy of GH!! So can I mail it to Annie (along with a return SASE) for her autograph!?

Nezzy said...
