Friday Musings

Isn't it funny how most of us look forward to the weekend? For me, the rest of the week just drags by. Saturday and Sunday? They fly by! If you're anything like me your weekends are just jam packed.

Family, friends, dogs (couldn't forget the walks with my favorite girl)....if we're lucky a day or two out on the lake with friends.

We lead a blessed life. Indeed, we do.

As part of my intent to savor life I have been reflecting on these facets quite a bit.

Focusing on what is special to me.

This guy.

This girl. Y'all. This girl has been by my side (towering over me is more like it) for the longest time. She has the biggest heart and the strongest backbone of anyone I know. I adore her.

This girl. She went through a devastating loss and smiles. She encourages others and shares of herself. She gives and gives even though so much has been taken from her. The strength of an angel.

These little ones. I adore them more than words could ever express.

And the fact that they love their Uncle Mr. Potts is the icing to my proverbial cupcake!

**I'd include my momma in this montage, but she doesn't like to have her picture taken. I'm lucky that the one in the upper right corner of the blog even happened.**

These people; they're our family too. The ones we've chosen and we love them all.

I know the picture is a little blurry - we know I don't have the best camera.

Quite an introspective Friday, huh? Who (or what) are you thankful for?

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

I was just going to say "Mr. Potts is so cute!" and Dee kind of said the same thing. I think you are pretty cute too Mrs. Potts :)

Have a great time this weekend!!!

I'm sure what I'm thankful is super obvious: my husband and our baby who is about to join us in a few weeks!

Love the pics of you and Mr. Potts! A little too late to say, hope you have a fabulous memorial day! But thankfully it's the weekend again, so we'll just go with TGIF!
