Fall Friday

It has already been such a positive experience with my blog, and although I don’t get the chance to send out a post every day,  well…if you read my last posting, you may see why! It is with a very grateful heart that I can say that today was a fun, relaxing day spent enjoying the Triple Cities Area of New York where my family lives with two friends who we feel like we could sit and talk our lives away with. These are the days that I cherish and Thank God for the gift of their friendship and the caring way that they help tote our kids along, taking time out of their busy schedule to make friendship and memories a priority.

I truly believe that everything happens for a reason. It is not a religious belief, it is a belief down deep in my core. There just has to be some meaning to this journey we call life, and I chose to believe that there is a divine plan. That is not to say that this plan does not take into account decisions that we make that may alter its course, because I feel it does. However, stretch your mind if you will, perhaps that plan is not rigid, however it will send that event or person back to you again, if you missed them the first time. I could get really philosophical on you, but I have been out in the beautiful fall breeze all day; leaves skipping along the sidewalks, shoppers peaking in windows, hot cups of coffee softly clinking upon saucers, and I just want to give my mind a chance to absorb the truly beautiful experience it is to spend time with our dear, inspiring, generous friends.

We always enjoy laughing the day away with you~ and can’t wait for our next adventure! They say that the best things in life are free. They weren’t kidding folks, True kindness and friendship doesn’t have to cost you anything. That is good for me, because Brady just took my last quarter to buy a gumball! IMG_20140620_080629

  1. Thanks for a fantastic day, Amy! You have an amazing family.

    I was impressed by how you and Ryan have decided to raise your children to be so accepting of others and their so-called differences.

    It is a valuable life lesson many parents fail to teach their children. That is how I was raised, and I am overjoyed to see that you and Ryan are raising your children the same way.

    PS Feel free to mention us by name in your blog posts. 🙂

  2. I will from now on! As far as differences, we are all human- we teach our sons that it is ok to love whoever your heart tells you to love. Why should it matter? Life is just to short to shut out someone who may come to mean the world to you.

    Thank for coming to visit and treating the boys to such a wonderful surprise! They are so thankful!
