Hi.......It Has Been a Chilly Windy Day~and it is our girls birthday!

Hello Sweet Ladies,

Talk about a cold day. It is going to be colder on Thursday. Some on the western side of Kansas got some flurries........but not here. I don't think I am ready for that yet! It was so cold though and the wind blew. Took some more warm water out to the girls! Hope they keep laying! I will be sad if they don't. 

Happy Birthday sweet girl!!!!

I have to say that this Momma is a little sad. Our Tressa will be 20 tomorrow,  Thursday October 27 not a teenager anymore. Can't believe it has been that long since she was born.........what a blessing the Lord gave us on that day. I remember leaving the hospital on the 28th.....they said that we would have to bring her back the next day.......she was a little gaunduice. We had to go in a snow storm and drive a half an hour there.......with an adorable PINK bundle through the snow to the hospital to have a test done. Now you have to understand when I say PINK I was one happy Momma. I had already had 3 precious boys.......they were 13, 16 and 19 at the time. I was 38 and we had to tell them that Momma was pregnant (I have to say I was a little embarrassed). They were excited and then in the world were they going to explain this to their friends they thought. I was thinking the same thing! How were we going to explain it to our friends? We walked into Sunday school class and one person said, "Only you guys.......only you"! God knew we could handle it.........He planned it from the beginning of time. My sweet man and I LOVED CHILDREN so it was fine with us! We were always borrowing others little people so their Mommies and Daddies could go out on dates. Now we had our own little one. Dressing her in little girl things after having the boys was a prayer come she is 20 and I am thinking where did the time go? She just traveled half way around the world......alone.......loves the Lord with all her heart......she is confident that the Lord has plans for her..........what more could a Momma want. 

Father....thank you.......for thinking up that we can trust You with Your Word and pour it into their they can know the Truth that will set them free if they will choose to follow You. Thank you for our precious girl who has made that commitment. May you continue to guide her Father in the way that she should go......and I ask that you continue to use her to bring JOY to many, as her Daddy and I have prayed from the day we named her after her Grandma Jo......... Tressa Joy Stubbs. You have been so good to us and we thank you for her life! Use her in a mighty way to bring You Glory. In Jesus Name we pray.......Amen

If you have a birthday wish or a prayer for her can leave it in the comments! I will surprise her!

Blessings and hugs,

  14. Oh Happy Happy Birthday to Tressa! Oh to be 20! How fun and what an exciting time in her life. What adventures she has already had!
    I know how you feel Momma Linda. I always have a twinge of sadness of my babies birthdays. Just miss those babies so!
    Will be over to email and we can catch up! Miss visiting with you....ALOT!
    Cooler here....not quite excited for it. Hate to close up the house! Furnace/burning wood....cozy yes...but just love the fresh air.
    Have a wonderful Friday! I'll be thinking of you!

  15. Hi Linda,

    Sorry, haven't been able to post comments for a few days. Downloaded a new browser and it is working part time. LOL

    Love the picture of the birthday girl! Both your girls are beautiful.

    I'll send you and email or give you a call later in the day.

    Love you!

  16. Just beautiful to see your lovely girl and her horse .... daughters are such a gift, arent they?! Mine just turned 17 and I'm ever mindful that in a couple of years she'll have flown the nest and gone out into the world - who knows what adventures she will find, but I sure will miss her!!

    Love from Willow xxxx
