Happy Thursday dear friends. I love this day of the week, how about you? Yesterday I had a great day~hubby was of golfing so I got a chance to walk 3 miles with a girlfriend, get a much needed haircut and take my girl and her girls out to lunch. How thankful I am for the Lord's blessings in my life.
Being today is TT, I wanted to thank the Lord for extended family and family roots.
This is my cousin Steve, the one closest in age to me, who I spent time with during my childhood. He was always very gracious when I was visiting his family and would let me tag along, just like a kid sister. I happened to see this photo of Steve at his son's wedding and as my sister-in-law said "doesn't this just scream Ireland". All of us cousins do look Irish but I think Steve looks the most Irish. He has a quick sense of humor and although I don't see him and his wife very often, I enjoy our visits. I am very proud of my heritage and look forward to the day when I can visit my grandparents homeland.


  1. Aww! What a sweet cousin! I am the oldest of all my cousins and loved spending time with them too!

    Sooo glad you had such a blessed day yesterday...getting a much needed haircut just makes everything better doesn't it ;)

    Have a blessed day Noreen

    Love u

  2. We picked raspberries on our walk in the ally (the girls call it the valley) it was a calming balm on a crazy morning. The school girls had late start so everyone stopped by in the morning. Five little girls running around getting out every toy while I tried to talk to their Mom. When the Mom and 2 left and I had three girls... I was fried already. I am older ya know. Hee hee. The little walk and berries and a Popsicle helped us all to settle down.
    On Monday and Wed. I have three girls (two mine and one daycare) and we go to parks our McDonald's. sometimes. Maybe you could bring a few kids and meet us for the morning and picnic (or McDonald,s).
