Sunshine in the Valley

humor and encouragement from my heart to yours

I love August…

on August 24, 2009

…or at least I do when it means lots of fun times with family and friends! And no days with temps of 100 or more. And mainly good things happening rather than otherwise. This one has been amazing. :D

I spent a whole week with my precious friend, Bethany, and we had great fun together…

Friends are a blessing! So are wonderful siblings… I spent a really fun day with the guys and Susanna on Saturday in Hot Springs….

I love these kids so much.

Afterwards, we had a very fun, and very close, game of miniature golf. The final scores were all within just a few points of each other! ;)

The past two years have taught me to value the people who really love me -and who are so very dear to my heart- more than I ever have before. The people who are there in thick and thin….the ones who love me on my best days and on my worst days… the ones who are always there even when life goes crazy. Those are the people who count the most, when all is said and done.

These are some of those people. :D
