Happy Anniversary!

12 years ago today - I was made the happiest woman alive - I married my "knight in shinning armour". He's still my knight though some days the armour is rusty or oily and I still love him as much if not more than I did that day.
We've learned the hard way that life is a rocky trip but as long as there is somebody there to help you climb over the obstances, shelter you when the storms hit, be there to cheer you on when you triumph and wrap their arms around you when your world comes crashing down you'll be okay. Daryl and I have been blessed with more things in this world than some people will ever know. We have been given and recieve unconditional love, found strength in each other, have been blessed with two beautiful children and no matter how rough things have gotten have always managed to keep the faith alive and keep going on the path that was laid out for us. I pray we have many more years together.

Thanks for being my partner, my love and my best friend always Daryl - I LOVE YOU!!!!!!

Its Rabbit show season again :)

Break out the blowers its time to show the bunnies again :) We'll be at the Spencerville Show Ontaro this Saturday and in NY on september 30th. Can't wait to see everybody again but of course the bunnies are all blowing their coats -oh well lots of yummy fiber to spin and trade!
Here's a picture of one of the juniors I'll be showing this Saturday -broken black doe RM's Delilah and broken chocolate Agouti buck RM's Jake. Jake was a godo boy and posed for the camera LOL. Deliah was a diva and refused to pose nicely "no pictures please!"
Fingers crossed they're as good as I think they are!

Happy Birthday Beppe~

I know my Beppe has been gone for 9 years now-but today would have been her birthday. We're almost birthday twins so we often celebrated our special days together. A piece of cake, a smile and special words that only we shared. Today I'll go visit her grave I'll leave no flowers there-I always told her I would give them to her while she was with me -I wouldn't leave them on the grave and so I will. I'll have a little cry -as it still hurts to know the empty spot that is here. We never forget the ones we truly loved and we always remember them but I'll smile too as I remember all the good times we shared. I only hope as I grow up I can be even a fraction of the woamn she was -strong, reolute in her faith and her life, caring beyond measure and above all loved.

Gelukkige Verjaardag Beppe - ik mis u, houd altijd van u en schat ons geheugen. Tot wij weach andere opnieuw zien.
