We're havin' a party!
5 Minutes for Mom is hosting a Blog Party! WOO-HOO! What fun! So glad you stopped by while you've been party-hopping~!
My name is Diane. I began blogging February of 2006 with the encouragement and support of my first-blogging-but-forever-friend, Cindy. One of the great benefits of this addiction, I mean, experience......is the community that has developed--in spite of the distance of cyberspace. Although, the distance will not be a problem when I join the Bloggy Girls Moutain Getaway this Fall, hosted by Kristen and Grandma Dawn! Do I hear a "EEE-HAW!"
When I am not blogging (I guess it could be said...even when I am blogging!), I am a wife (34 years), mother of 3 fabulous children (26, 24, and 15) and one foster-daughter (30), non-traditional college student (working on my Masters in Psychology), daughter, sister, Aunt, and Foster-Grandma to three beautiful grandchildren. And, I must add....I am so happy to greet you! Welcome to Partners In Prayer for Our Prodigals!
Should you want to find out, "Why Prodigals?", please click here. It has been a sharing of my journey through loving an adult child through a bumpy road called, "his life!" Or as my blogging friend, Morning Glory, has recoined, "his miracle in progress!"
Like you, I love talking about my children! Our daughter was married to a fabulous young man August 13, 2006! She works as an RN in the NeoNatalCriticalCareUnit at a Children's Hospital, he is an Accountant, studying for the dreaded CPA Exam!
Our 24 year old son just recently returned to Minneapolis, after a stay in Orlando, Florida, and has been hired (WOO-HOO!!!!!) as a Data Entry Coordinator; he begins this answer to pray on Monday
And then.....there is our 9th grade basketball player! It's been said that the "third one's the charm," well, I can affirm! Coming to us 10 years after our 2nd child, we have been richly blessed! Aren't we all! Children are such a gift directly from God!
Now that you have arrived at the door, please come in and make yourself at home. It is my pleasure to say "Welcome!" Please stay; and should you be off to do a little more party-hopping, please come back.....anytime!
