Yesterday my son got engaged and I am so happy for him. His bride-to-be is smart, pretty and mature. But best of all she is very good for him. I am very excited to welcome this lovely young woman into our family!

Seriously, I am so very proud of this young man, I just can't tell you how much. He is independent and self sufficient, but more than that he is one of the most compassionate men I know. He is also sometimes brutally honest and I appreciate that(most of the time). He isn't perfect and he still has some growing up to do, don't we all? But I love him very much and can't wait to see what he accomplishes with his life.
Happy Birthday to my baby boy- middle child- practical joker- best son a mom could ask for!
I'm linking to an article that shared some of her best quotes. They are great little nuggets of wisdom and I hope that you enjoy them as I did.
Here is one of them,
“But the question to precede all others, which finally determines the course of our lives is, 'What do I really want?' Was it to love what God commands, in the words of the collect, and to desire what He promises? Did I want what I wanted, or did I want what He wanted, no matter what it might cost?”
“When ours are interrupted, his are not. His plans are proceeding exactly as scheduled, moving us always (including those minutes or hours or years which seem most useless or wasted or unendurable).”

I recently bought a different brand of coffee on the clearance rack at work. It wasn't much of a bargain as I ended up throwing it away. My daughter said it tasted sour. I didn't realize coffee could taste sour, but she was right.
So I bought my favorite Seattle's Best #4. This is a nice rich coffee that leaves me feeling satisfied.
