Into all lives, in many simple, familiar, homely ways, God infuses this element of joy from the surprises of life, which unexpectedly brighten our days and fill our eyes with light.

Well, I have decided to join the blogosphere. It took me awhile, but hopefully I can keep my friends and family updated. Right now I am 'patiently' waiting for Anna to get home from a band trip to Halifax - she should be getting home by 11:30 pm (about 2 hours past my bedtime!). I am also (as of today) officially unemployed after 4 1/2 years of working part time. I am hoping to get many things done around the house (such as making curtains) which have been left unattended for far too long. Well, this is the beginning ...
Wife of 1 amazing man, mother to 5 beautiful daughters, mom-in-law to 3 great guys, Grammie to six very sweet granddaughters (Charlotte, Eden, Lila, Kate, Audrey and Evelyn) and two adorable grandsons, Malcolm and Connor.
