This girl is beautiful every day all day, but look what a bouquet of flowers does. 
I love you Bets, you are always always my little flower girl!

June 2022

The volunteer petunias are outshining the alabama sunset coleus so far.

Mark's firestorm daylily

that cute little oceanna girl with her daddy

Mark and Kyle with a good fire going.  Skye was happy :)
We had to say goodbye to Walker.  He was feeling so bad.  He's a great cat, I know he's having a great time hunting in the garden on the other side.  And he sent  this cute little Annie girl right away!

Mama got thru her surgery.  We're glad that's over for her!
No pictures of mama's garden?  I don't know how that didn't happen.  Here's Powers Pond.
And now we're thru June--half of 2022 already gone.  Wonder what July will bring?

May Happenings

                                                       Betsy graduated from 8th grade


                Oceanna loves flowers and books.  She looks so much like Isaac did at that age.
                                                                  those long legs!

She's growing up so fast!
                                               I'm taking a wreath class online, I love this one

Mark looks great, his treatment is working.  It's kind of a drag, but we have a lot to be grateful for.

May Day Birthday 2022

 This is a little video that Billie, one of Rachel's relatives sent to me.  She took it at Judson's birthday party in 2018, a few months before he left for the other side.  I love the little side hug that he gave me when I got there, I love seeing Kyle watching over the box-opening, I love hearing Rachel's laugh and the sounds of an everyday moment back when we thought that those moments would keep happening year after year.

I have so many thoughts as I watch this.  Why didn't I savor that hug longer?  Why didn't I get to his party earlier to be with him longer?  Did we have another hug before I left that day?  I'm thankful we had that day, thankful that we have this video now.  I'm so thankful that I got to be his mom and that's he's with me every day somehow still connected.  

From that same birthday party

Any and all forms of separation, disconnects, divides, partings, breakups, and
goodbyes, Kynda, are temporary. Very. You'll be together far, far longer 
than you will ever be apart.
