Day 8 and fathers



Day 8 is here! Still glad I joined this challenge. I love how it makes me feel so accomplished, I love that my family can see a difference without me saying anything, I love all of Rhonna's inspirational quotes, and I love everyone's heartfelt, funny, supportive, very sweet comments. My heart is full of appreciation!
Fathers day was yesterday and we had my whole side of the family over for dinner, except for Julie and Justin's family. Still so sad that they moved to Tennessee. I missed them so much...especially on holidays. (HUGS GUYS!) Anyways, it was a yummy dinner and fun conversation with the people I love. I want my sweet dad and my dear husband Mark to know how much I love and appreciate them and their roles as fathers. My dad helped my mom raise 5 ornery daughters and he still has all his marbles. Mark is still helping me with raising 5 ornery sons. (now a daughter in law too and soon a new grandson to boot) His hair his graying fast, but marbles are still intact as well, but we're not done so the verdict is still out on that one. They are both wonderful men who do this hard job called fatherhood with a smile on their face and love in their hearts!

Go Jolene!!! It sounds like you had a lovely Father's Day. We did too, just the 3 of us, so it was quiet, but peaceful. :)

You are really blessed. And sounds like you had a nice fathers day as well. :)
I really like the jornal-pages you create, and the way you incorporate Rhonnas art in your own pages. :)
Thanks for your nice comments on my blog. :)
