The other day I was sitting in our front yard just looking out.....

Sometimes the kids are loud and rambunctious, running wildly through the yard. 

Sometimes I'm alone, stealing a few moments for myself while Timothy naps and everyone else is preoccupied. 

Sometimes it's sunny and warm, with a slight breeze blowing through my hair.

Sometimes it's overcast and cloudy with the smell of rain on the way. 

Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter....

No matter the circumstances, the same thought always crosses my mind in those moments I'm out there in our front yard just looking out....

We are so lucky. Thank you, God. 

Thank God for this place. Thank God for all the beauty that surrounds us. We love our home and are so very thankful for being right where we are, out here in the country. I have never felt such a strong sense of love and pride over a place. But then again, it's not just any 'ol place, is it? It's our home. And it's filled with all the precious things I love and then surrounded by all of God's beauty. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you.  

My heart is bursting. 

Tonight we are having a star party! How wonderful is that? My mother and her husband brought up his large telescope and we invited all of our neighbors and a few others over for dinner and a little star gazing when it gets dark. Just another reason to love where we live!! 

With love,
Mama Hauck

  1. I love looking up at the stars, I bet the view of them is incredible where you live! No doubt the kids had a great time too.

    The household gets hectic sometimes but you've never seemed to lose sight of what matters most. You do indeed have a lot to be thankful for, but you've also both worked hard to achieve it.
