life with littles

We’ve been enjoying life with littles again as we’ve been babysitting our Northern boy’s twins.  Living far away means we seldom see them, but it also means that when we do, it’s for a few days at a time.  I am very thankful for FaceTime, though, and often wonder how missionaries and others moved from home to… Continue reading life with littles

grow old with me

Now, I’m not sayin’ my Love is old….but he did hit the half century mark.  I’m teasing, of course, because I’m just a year behind him and I’m definitely not old.  I enjoy this sweet verse by Robert Browning (good thing I’d double-checked because I was positive this was written by someone else. You can read the… Continue reading grow old with me
