Make Every Day Count -- the Diary and Photo Album of the Wandering Widow!
My nephew (my sister-in-heaven's son, Mark David Lawrence and his sweet wife, Donna Lawrence had just about an entire section reserved for their own family in the Cox Convention Center for the graduation. There were about 30 of us. I love that this family celebrates each other and it's a great excuse for a "family reunion" afterwards! Congrats to my great nephew, Caleb Lawrence, on his graduation. Oh, the places he will go!
Yes, this was the "Wandering Widow's musings of my weekend!
Thanks for indulging me. It was my way of sharing how we can make our days count. We won't ever have this day again, so why shouldn't we make the most of it that we can? What we choose to spend time on can unlock blessings for us today, and every day to come.
Let's make our days count by recalling God's goodness, spreading His love around in word and deed, and being grateful for a new day.

It was just "puppy love" that brought my Honey and I together at the ages of 13 and 12. We eventually married at the "mature" ages of 18 and 17. And that's when our faith journey began. Over the years, we encountered many opportunities to stretch our faith, especially when our babies were very sick, when financial situations were out of control, and when our marriage relationship had some rocky periods.But we made it through those times by our strong faith and trust in God. But never was our faith more challenged, than when my 63 years "young" husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 Kidney Cancer. Fortunately, the 44 years of marriage and faith-building experiences, caused us to "weather the storm", and still remain in peace and strong in our faith. This "peace that passed understanding" compelled me to blog and share the principles that caused our faith to be unwavering and continues to give me the joys of living large! I'm still here, so I'm not done!. I pray you will grow in your faith as you, not only read the blogs, but apply the principles to your own life -- for the good times, and especially for those times that seem so overwhelming.
