There’s nothing like family and friends

This weekend was a pretty busy one.  We went to my mom’s Birthday dinner in Enid and had a great time.  They were celebrating mom’s birthday and one of her friends birthday’s together.  The food was alright but the company was great.  It was nice to get together with the family.  My Aunt came down from Kansas for the night too!  Maddie had a great time visiting with her uncle, great aunt and great grandparents and of course the grammies and friends! 
Unfortunately the food made my mom, aunt and hubby sick during the night.  Shane didn’t get to come to church with us and right before leaving a friend of mine invited us to come and eat lunch, after church, with her family!  We had a blast!  Maddie loves being around all those kids and enjoys playing with the other Maddy.  The have such a good time together when they aren’t fighting like sisters! lol  My friend Kathy has 2 brothers and a sister and each of them have 2 kids so that makes for a lot of noisy fun!  Maddie just loves her ‘Uncle’ Mike and playing with him too. 

Nothing like a great day at church and then some wonderful ‘family’ time!  Thanks so much to the family that has adopted us as one of their own!! Red heart

“The love of a family is life's greatest blessing”

“The heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as perfume and incense.” Proverbs 27:9

“Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:9–12

When we consider the blessings of God—the gifts that add beauty and joy to our lives, that enable us to keep going through stretches of boredom and even suffering – friendship is very near the top."
