May Day Baskets

May Day...I had to share this about my kids.

 They wanted to do May Day Baskets for the neighbors. It ended up being the neighborhood. They made their baskets, stuffed them with tissue, and candy...and then went tearing out of the house this morning on their mission...about 15 baskets later, they all come running back in laughing & heavily breathing from all the running. 2 of them "caught", but the rest were successful.

About 1/2 hour later, I had a phone call from a neighbor several houses down, asking if our kids were the ones who left the MayDay treat, I said yes. This elderly lady started weeping on the phone, and thanked me for my children, explaining she didn't do those things with her children.

About an hour later, another elderly lady down the other part of our street a ways (who I have never met), came to the door with a thank you card for my kids - and went on to say that those baskets made her & her husbands day!

I'd like to say this was my was all the kids. You never know whose lives you will touch by a random act of kindness. My children make me proud.  Happy May Day!!!

I love spring...when I can leave the windows open, feel the fresh air blowing thru, smell the grass and see the sunshine....there's truly nothing like it.

Today during our Girls Book Club - we sat outside and did our "lesson"...more like talk, giggled, etc. And we had a blast. I love working with these great young ladies, ages 8-13. They are some of the sweetest girls I know, and are so much fun to be around. JayCee and I truly do enjoy our every other Tuesday's with them.

I'm so excited for Easter this year! Not only do we get to celebrate the resurrection and promise of our Savior, but my older brother from Texas is home, my younger brother is living here now, and my grandmother is here from Missouri! My parents get all of their kids home for Easter together for the first time in about 12 years! Plus, I get to take some generational pics of Grandma, Mom, Me and JayCee! I'm so excited about that!

While I'm Waiting...

If you haven't heard the song, "While I'm Waiting" by John really need to. Right now, the Karns' are in a "waiting" period. Knowing God is calling us to something "more" - but not sure what the MORE we are waiting. But while we are waiting, we aren't just sitting around, doing nothing...we will still be Serving Him...Worshiping Him.

Please clieck on the LINK below to listen to the song...
