Above Rubies

Last weekend I went with a wonderful group of ladies to an Above Rubies Retreat. There were 7 women and 3 babies. I left my camera at home, so to see actual photos from the retreat see Renee or Hillary's blogs. When I got home I found this picture on my camera. I love the excitement and joy I see in Ruby's eyes. She often says, "I a good mama." I pray that she will be fruitful and have a husband that cherishes her and children that call her blessed.
Erik has been having a rough morning but he takes his role as big brother very seriously. I gave Libby to him to hold and he calmed right down and held her for quite a while.


Back to Above Rubies, we had a wonderful weekend complete with sun, rain and snow. We did not have nearly enough time to sit and visit with each other but enough to laugh. Jess will forever be famous for her line, "Liberty or money" with her finger in the air! It all comes back to the choice of freedom or the bondage of money. There were many thought provoking ideas and thoughts and basically gave me the inspiration and motivation to keep doing what I am doing. We also had one mom with us that has 2 small children and is excited at the beginning of her homeschooling journey. We shared many ideas for time and money savers so I just wanted to pass along this great savings for Pork Loin at our local Cost Cutter this weekend. Enjoy!
