Little Beauties!


Happy Monday!!

Just had to share this photo with
you today!


These are our two grandies in their
costumes for the Fall Festival!

Little Hannah is five months old now! 
WOW!!  How time has flown by!

She is a little rosebush!
Sam made her outfit and I love it!

Emily is 6 now and wanted to be a little
lady bug! 

She is also a proud bug sis!!
Oh how these little beauties fill their
Nana's heart with JOY and delight!!


And to see our Samantha blossom into motherhood,
and do such a wonderful job with these two...
truly one of my greatest joys!


*****

You know, dear friends,
we have to be so careful how we
spend our days. 

God is still teaching me about how very important
my role as wife, mother and Nana is.

We only have so much time here, and He wants 
each of us to carefully weigh other pursuits and where 
they fit into our lives against these most important privileges
He has blessed us with.

I am 53 years old and still learning every day!
 I have never been
more thankful for the joys of family life, and the time
He has given me with my wonderful husband, daughters, 
son-in-love, and grandies!  

My goal and heart's desire is
 to leave behind me a legacy of love for God,
family, and have the knowledge, when I breathe my last breath,
that I did the best I could possibly do with the opportunities
granted by God to impact the lives of our family's future
generations, so they can touch the lives of others with 
His love.


Have a fabulous week!
I will announce my giveaway by Friday!!

Hugs and love to all of you!

Oh Becky, HOW did I miss this post??! First, those grands are just adorable! I love the idea of a rose bush!! Soo perfect. Can't believe the baby is already 5 months.. And you are soo right. Each day only holds so much time and how careful we have to be in how we use it! My heart echos yours in how I want to be remembered. Glad I "found" this post today. Hope you are having a good week!

Hello dear Becky, please don't think I have forgotten you. Just leading the busiest life we have had in years. Company and traveling so much has slowed me down with my visiting. Right now we are in Jax with Christina for what else, a football game. We love visiting our loved ons but I am homesick. HA!

Emily and Hannah must give you such happiness dear Becky.We love our grands so much. Blessings is what they are.

Love you much,
Jeanne

Beautiful photo, Becky. How blessed that you get to share this time, love and knowledge with them and your family. I am some years older than you, and God is still teaching me, how to live my life as He has planned.
A very moving post,I have been so blessed by your thoughts.
Hugs,
Sue

Donna said...

Oh Becky,

What you said sits so true on my heart as well. This is my goal, each and every day, "Lord please guide me in Your desires, may everything I do and everything I touch be for Your good." I know there are days I fall short, as hard as I try, but each day following, I try again to please Him and not me. I am new to your blog, and even in this short time you have touched me. Thank you for your boldness!

Continued blessings,
Donna
