More than that, my dad absolutely loved his family. Every single member was precious to him and they all know it. From my dear mother who spent nearly every second of every day and night over the last year and a half caring for him to the former grandchild, former because due to the marriage that ended her "legal" tie to our family over 14 years ago. She was there with us crying and missing him like the rest of us, because we all have lost this beautiful amazing man from our lives until we all meet again in Glory. I have even more reason to look forward to that day now. I can't wait to hug him again. I thought about it yesterday. He was sick for so much time I can't really remember the last real hug I got from my dad. He could hardly stand, for several months now so the hugs weren't what the use to be. I will though, I will get a marvelous hug one day and it will be wonderful.

"This is the day which the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
I am thankful for the blessings that God alone has given me. He has blessed me although I have failed Him so many times. I thank Him and Him alone as I know that all good things come from Him.
Sometimes in our lives Satan will do all that he can to try and steal everything he can from us in order to hurt our Precious Lord. Even people who claim to know him will allow Satan to fill their heads with lies, they will listen to any sort of evil and proclaim it as truth.
I choose to believe God's Word, His is the only truth and He tells us that we will know the truth and the truth will set us free. Jesus is the way and the truth and the life. I believe Jesus!!
As you may have gathered, someone has tried to hurt me by using lies from the father of lies himself. I know what is the truth as much as this person and I will not give place to the devil and entertain a heart of vengence. I know that my Father knows all and sees all and I can rest in His promise that vengence is His.
As I stated above, He and He alone has blessed me. I have an incredible husband, one who makes me feel the love and compassion I longed for for so very long. He is not perfect just as I am not perfect, but for me he comes pretty close. I have 6 amazing children. My four daughters (pictured below) and 2 sons. My oldest is in Atlanta, GA and my stepson is in Lagrange, GA. Again, my children are not perfect, but I am so very blessed to have them. We have such an incredible relationship. Especailly my daughters and me. We can talk about anything and they have no or at least very little fear of coming to me with anything. Their only fear is a fear of hurting me, not me accepting them. For this again, I know I am blessed.
God is good and He is all in all. I love Him, I praise Him, I adore Him. Again I will say God is good.
This is Tess, the one in the middle and she holds it all together for us with love. I love you, Tess.
This is Annie, my second born daughter, so full of mystery, so much depth. I love you, Annie.
My sons are amazing as well, I have incredible pride in them both. They have grown into wonderful young men who show great maturity. I love you both, Chris and Kyle.

I woke up Sunday and got a call from my son first thing wishing me a Happy Mother's Day. A very nice thing to wake up to. My family took me to my new favorite resturant (Sakura) for an awesome lunch of sushi. We all loved it, even my two picky eaters, so looks like we will be going back... YAY!!
I praise God for giving me such a wonderful family who gives me so much love. He is so good to me.
Here we all are at the beach on Saturday. We did have lots of fun - This is actually Mexico Beach
We drove over to Panama City later for dinner and to see a movie. (You can click on this picture to enlarge for a better view if you like)
I hope you all have a wonderful week and that God blesses you greatly!!

I'm still not so good at this whole blog thing cause I was hoping to put up a few more pics but I couldn't figure out how I did it last time. I'm missing a pic of my little brother so I'll just have to get him next time I guess. There are so many more in my family, we all have bunches of children and so if you are interested you can see more of us on my Flickr account. It has the same name as one of my Etsy accounts - HeidisPhotoShop. Okay, that's all for now.
I haven't forgot about an update on the bees. It's going really good - they are loving there new home and have even gained a new sister hive which we've got way out back where we discovered we had some tupelo trees. This is really exciting to me because tupelo honey is often the best honey for diabetics and being I just found out I have that dreaded disease I'm pretty thrilled. Take care all and as always God bless you all.
Okay, this one is Susan and me.

I'll try to post more pics tomorrow to show some of the rest of the family. My brother Ken and his wife Kim have seven children. I'm in the middle and my husband Mike and I have six children. My younger sister Marcie and her husband Rick have nine daughters. My youngest brother who we all call Flip lives at home with my mom and dad. He is has Downs Syndrome and will not marry. We all feel very blessed to have him in our family. I hope you will stay tuned for more family updates and pics. Also I feel honored when you ask questions so please don't hesitate. God bless you all. :D

Today my husband Mike and our two middle girls took a trip to Wausau, Fl and picked up a couple of "nucs" These, as I understand are like little mini bee colonys.
Each nuc has a queen, a bunch of worker bees and some frames, already started with wax and honey and all the things little bees need to get a big hive going. Mike had already purchased a couple of bee boxes. He put them together and painted them. He and our girls took them across the street and placed them between our two little ponds. Here they should get plenty of sunshine and water. We have so much vegatation growing around there that we should have some fat, happy little honey producers in no time. This is a project my husband has been wanting to do for many years and I'm so happy this day has finally come for him. Send up a pray that all will go well and that the giant gator he saw this weekend doesn't like honey or bee hives!!
Below I have posted several pictures of honey bees. These are all from photographer I have discovered at Etsy.com. I will put the photographers etsy shop address and the link to each picture below each photographers picture. I hope you will take the time to visit each shop and maybe take a look around. There are some amazing photographers at etsy and if you are in the market for some awesome pictures you will surely not be wasting your time shopping there. Oh, and I have a couple of etsy shops too, ya know, if your so inclined to take a peek.
I hope you all have a marvelous week. Come on back soon for new posts on our new Bee Farm. (Bee Farm name coming soon...)

It's funny how life can change in just a moment of time. People can come into your life and out of it. What was good can become bad just as what is bad can become good. As a christian I do believe that everything happens for a reason and that God allows many things to happen to bring us to the place He wants us to be.
