Home is wherever my family is...

I guess this year with kid #3 off to college, 

and just 1 more chiilun at home to be raised,
has got me feeling all sentimental about my family.

I have spent the last 27 years of my life dedicated to them. 
And as one by one they move off to begin their own lives I feel happy and satisfied that my hubby and I have done a good job with them.
Every one of them is a well rounded interesting person with a good set of values and a love for God.

Each one of them is a light to the world as they move out their to live their faith. It is wonderful to see. 
And no matter where we are, 
when we are together we are "Home"
I'm sure you feel the same about your family!

With all my children out on their own, I now have to say that Home is where my heart is--A little bit in Oregon, a little bit in Phoenix, a little bit in Prescott, AZ, and a little bit in Tolleson, AZ.

Yes, mine are on their own and have done well too. I"m a happy camper when they are happy!
Although home is a bit different now, it's where my heart is.

BTW, I love you designs. I have one that really peaked my interest, can't remember the name but is in my basket to stitch....bird in a cage, leaves Heaven in a rage....???? I love that piece because it carries so much meaning to me. I can't wait to stitch it.
