I am overwhelmed by how blessed my life really is and I am reminded to take nothing for granted.

How does your life leave you speechless? Pretty cool feeling, isn't it?

  2. Dear Lis-these pictures are so beautiful. Cowgirl is such a beautiful spirit...I see that shining through. I agree with you..there is so much in life to be grateful recognize that is to live in a state of grace.
    Thank you so much for your encouragement and support over at my blog. Things are super hectic over here...I am too busy to be stressed:) ...and I am grateful for that:

  3. We're coming up to our 4th too. Dropped her off today in her school togs and it feels as if suddenly I have to share her with the world. I'm not sure I'm ready, but she is.
    Happy Family Day to you all.
