Family + Marriage + Motherhood = Priceless

Yes, it’s true. I’m being a wee bit cheesy today. But after seeing the things that happened in Moore, Oklahoma, it was a reality check on me and my mumblings. I really adore my family. I miss my mother like crazy, and I so wish that the pictures here included her lovely face with our two girls, but alas and alack, life doesn’t always play fair.

For today’s Wordless Wednesday, I went back to my roots – my Wednesday Words of Wuv for My Wittle Ones. And I added a few of the big people, too. Make sure you spread the love every day, whether to your family, your friends, your dog, your church, your softball team. It doesn’t have to be big and gushy – although that makes it more fun! – but can be something simple as, “I appreciate you,” or, “I’m glad you’re here with me today.” It’s up to you.

And yes, sometimes we have very odd picture moments. And lots of good times.

      Got the mushy covered, that’s for sure! And yep, he can fold a fitted sheet. Well, with some direction. :)

      You’re welcome 😉 They certainly make me laugh a lot. Especially the hubs! Thank you for hosting!

    • Melissa Swedoski says

      Thank you for the compliment, and I’m glad the scare was just that. Too much to worry about in this world!

      We do try really hard to get the off the cuff pictures, because they tend to be much funnier than the posed ones. Although we have plenty of those, too, lol.
      p.s. I love your site and will continue to promote your linkups!

    I would just like to point out there is still dirt covering my walkway from that one picture.

    • Melissa Swedoski says

      Got it – you want a broom for your birthday. Thanks for the tip!

    • Melissa Swedoski says

      Thanks so much! I love your pictures. I envy you that array of color. I don’t know if I’m clever enough to sustain those in this Texas heat!

      PicMonkey has become one of my new best friends! I can do all those things in PhotoShop, but man, it takes sooo much longer. I can zoom, zoom on picmonkey, lol.
