Make My Saturday Sweet - Blog Hop #50

Welcome to my weekend blog hop! Here you get to link your favorite post of the week and share it with other bloggers. Just remember to visit the last two links before yours and leave a comment and make their Saturday sweet!

I'm joining three other great hops today and I've taken the challenge of answering their writing prompts for this Friday. My own hop doesn't have a theme, so you are welcome to link your family friendly blog below.

The word prompt on Five Minute Friday is She

She came when I wasn't ready for a new baby. She messed up my schedule and changed my routine. She came with colic and couldn't sleep in the day at all. There were no naps. There were no easy moments.

She changed my life and that of our family for the better. She turned our world upside down. She showed us how to love and to appreciate each other. She grew into a little girl who knew how to demonstrate sharing and was gracious in spirit. She taught me how to be a better person.

I cannot express in words what she has meant to our family. God designed her to be beautiful on the outside and even more beautiful on the inside. She is friendly and caring. She is smart and creative. She loves to dance by expressing the music she hears with her body.

She lights up our world.

The theme on Friendship Friday is Fall

Morning fog: View from my kitchen

I love it when the trees change colors. My favorite memories are of Virginia and all the variety of yellows, reds and oranges that covered the landscape. It's also the time when we get away from the heat of the summer and enjoy cooler days.

Right now it is hard for me to imagine fall as we are having spring. Yep, everything is backward in the Southern Hemisphere. No snow men at Christmas, but lots of sun and swimming at the beach.

I deserve a medal for the time I... cared for a colicky baby. I had four babies and each came with colic. There is nothing harder than having to give all your time and energy and then some to an uncomfortable baby. You wonder if today you'll get some rest. You wonder if today they will grow out of it. You wonder if today you won't lose your mind.
