I have been surprised and humbled by the many emails, calls and comments with words of love and encouragement to me and our family since I started this blog. I know I have responded to each of you, but I felt compelled to publically say thank you again. As I am sure is the same with each of you, there is that little place deep inside my soul that receives such refreshment and renewed energy when only a simple sentence of kind words is spoken. Your words have challenged me to be even more sensitive and respond quickly to the Holy Spirit when I am feeling His nudge to write a note of encouragement. Thank you!

Many of you have mentioned that you are not able to leave comments….and I am not sure why…yikes!! Any techies out there that can help??? OK…so after my call to techies I myself went snooping into my settings and found that you had to be a registered user to comment, so I changed that setting. I hope this helps…I am not a techie, just hoping I selected the correct options this time!

This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!! Psalm 118:24


  1. Yes --I can now leave comments

  2. Chessa, I was just reading through your blog and it makes me cry and smile. I hope you are having a wonderful day. May God give you strength.

  3. Oh my goodness! I'm so glad to be able to comment now! I couldn't even find your email, and resorted to sending smoke signals via your kids at school. "Here's your sandwich, PLEASE tell your mom to email me!" :)
    What a lovely blog. Your love for your grandparents is amazing to read about. I hope I will be as blessed and lovingly cared for when I age. I have cried while reading so many of your posts. You are a great writer Chessa!

  4. Thank you Leslie...for your encouraging words. I tried to leave you another comment on your blog but it did not come through. I love the photograph at the top of your blog, it is beautiful!

    Shawn...Hi there sweet girl! I am so sorry, my kiddos told me "the lunch lady said to email her" and I had not done it yet! It cracked me up....I loved that they did not say Mrs. Ellars...they said..."the lunch lady"! Thank you for your sweet words. The priviledge is ours in caring for Papa and Gigi...truly! It is your blog that I love! are one creative homeschooling mama...your posts are fantastic! I am going to send you an email so we can connect that way also!

  5. Shawn...I emailed you but I am not sure if it is the correct address...I got it off WINGS. I tried to use your blog but my computer would not let me use your "email me" link...yikes! I think I may log into FB and try emailing there! Hopefully "talk" to you soon...Chessa:-)

    Hope you and the family are doing well.
