I Love a Good Mystery!

F is for …


Me and Sweet Hubby – I am so blessed!


I know I’ve already done an F entry for the week (you can find my original F entry HERE!) but being that it’s VALENTINE’S DAY, I just had to give an online hug to my favoritest people in the whole, wide world!

Iron Man – Goofy Nephew and my amazing mom.

I just LOVE spending time with my kids, my brother and his family, and all of the extensions. 

My mom has the greatest sense of humor and it has spread to my brother, his son, and my son. As a result, we can’t usually make it through a meal without laughing ourselves silly.

Dear Boy and Goofy Nephew
doing what come naturally.

(Yeah, I think the restaurant was really happy to see us leave!)

Speaking of laughing, I love to make my sweet hubby crack up. He’s the quiet type, but he tosses in zingers every once in a while and when he gets tickled, his giggle is delightful.

“Granny” is Awesome Sis-in-law’s Mom.  Goofy Nephew didn’t
realize he was in this shot. Too funny!
Me with my mom and my brother. Yes, I’m a good little Texas
girl and I call my brother, “Bubba”!

All of our holiday and birthday celebrations include my mom and brother, his family and my sister-in-law’s mom. We go together well.

Sis and her family with my dear boy.

One of the reasons we get to enjoy so many Christmas celebrations is because of the wonderful lady who became my dad’s third wife. 

My wonderful step-mom and Dear Boy.

Though Daddy is gone, she makes sure we get to have family time at every opportunity. My sister and her kids complete our celebration. Don’t kids just MAKE a party?

Delightful Dinky Twinkies.
DTs with Precious Redhead.

And speaking of kids, my house if filled with laughter and singing. Few harsh words and fewer raised voices. I love the sweet smiles of my girls and how they chatter and laugh together.

And I never even got to my excellent in-laws!

I’m blessed and I know it full well. 

Tell me about your family!

After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.
