Heart Beat  Size: 8 x 10 x  2  Acrylic on Canvas.


I will never forget the day my youngest son called and said, "Mom, you know me better than anyone else, I am so tired of the dating scene and all the different personalities out there and the disappointments...can you find me a wife?" 

This was in summer 2008.  We were actually on our way to the airport to fly to Washington DC and then drive up to the Finger Lake Region. My mom was with us for the 10 day vacation. It definitely gave us food for conversation during the flight.  As soon as we hit ground I started watching for 'the wife type' for Morgan.  We actually teased and interviewed a few along the way that chuckled at the request.  Life was busy and I did not forget but it was November of 2008 when I was at church with Mom that I saw this tiny cute blonde working with the youth group. I ask Mom who she was and she told me. The next question was, 'has she graduated from high school?'.  Mom laughed and said Kelly was graduating from college in December.  Putting the times together I realized that Morgan had been through confirmation with Kelly's older sister and Kelly had been the tag along little sis on all the youth group trips.

I spoke with Kelly and got her number and reminded her of who Morgan was. Little did I know she had a little girl crush on him way back then (like twelve years prior).  Lets zoom ahead. They had their first date after Christmas and went to the Symphony for Valentine's Day and to dinner. The first picture was taken in spring 2009.  Zooming ahead, they got married in 2011.

We were sad they did not get married at the church they grew up in, but they had a beautiful wedding in a chapel near downtown Dallas. They were married by the same minister that married all three of our kids. 

Morgan is a financial advisor with TD Ameritrade and Kelly is a school Psychologist with a nearby ISD.  They are so precious and they are the love story for the day. 

True love for February...Heart Beats!


Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Ephesians 4:2

The Thought:  Our youngest daughter is still very ill.   I am pumping her full of fruit and juices, mucinex and tylenol etc but it is not a positive thing right now. Does not look like we will make my older daughter's house for Thanksgiving.  I am sad because there will be new family to be attending along with everyone that has NOT been together since the dea
