Warriors and Maidens...

In case you did not know, I have another blog.  I started it back in August but have not blogged like I thought I would.  So I decided to post a few pictures of the nesters from their birthdays this year.  If you would like  you can click here to hop on over. 

I had an idea about where I wanted to go with Raising Warriors and Maidens, but I can not seem to get my thoughts out of my head and into the blog.  So I am praying that God will show me what I am to do with the new blog.  It was something I felt like the Lord was leading me to do when I was praying for direction in my life.  I will continue to pray and see where He leads me.

Our Last Birthday of the Year

I can not believe we are at the end of 2013! I think back over the year and the many blessings that God has brought our way.  One huge blessing was Daughter #1 and her family moving back to Indiana.  After five, very long years for us, it was like a dream come true.  (I will save that for another day, just the thought makes me want to cry!)

Anyway, the reason of this post is to celebrate Daughter #1's twenty-fifth birthday!  We were very surprised after having three boys to have a little princess!  She has been such a joy, which is her middle name!

A December Birthday

I can not believe that today our baby girl, Daughter #7, turns nine!  It seems like it yesterday this tiny, 31 1/2 week premature baby came into our lives.  I spent just shy of two months on bed rest with her between home and hospital.

Daughter #7 is probably the most dramatic of all our daughters.  Not a drama queen, but a funny dramatic!  Sometimes we wonder where she comes up with her wit and drama, then we look at the great teachers she has had in her life! 

Daughter #7 is not only the youngest daughter, but the youngest child.  She is the daughter that has played with her baby dolls longer than the other girls, probably because she has not "grown-up" with a baby in the house.  Nieces and nephews are great, but they do not live here all the time. 


Children, Grandchildren and Life, OH MY!

It has been a long time since I posted!  I cannot believe so much time would go by without a post.  I have been able to read a few of my favorite blogs, as reading goes much quicker than posting!

Life is ever so busy.  Truth is, children and grandchildren seem to have me tied up lately.  You know, just life in general.  School, sick tummies, taking care of the grands, and trying to stay on top of life.  I broke my little toe two days after Thanksgiving.  I finally went back to church yesterday for the first time.  I have been out of the house only a total of 3 times!  It is nice to be able to put a shoe on my foot even if it is a tiny bit painful.

We are into the final days of the first semester and have divided our semester exams into three days.  The men in my life are out today delivering food baskets from our church Bread of Life Ministry.  My little women once they finish their school are helping out with Granddaughter J and helping get a few things done around the house.

It is a…
