Happy Birthday Rita!

Another Nov. birthday! Our family has now got 4 birthdays to celebrate in Nov. Little Andrew added another one by making his appearance early and joining his 2 aunties and one uncle in the month of Nov.
So here we are with Rita's 14 th. birthday on Nov. 8. The years have gone by so quickly. As you can see I am already one week late with posting for her birthday. I wish that sometimes we could just make time stand still and we could keep things the way they are for awhile. But that is not the way God intended it to be so we have to cherish each moment that we have with our children to the fullest! The joys of raising and training your children are so rewarding,I wouldn't trade them for any other job in this world!
With Rita in the house their is never a dull moment! She knows how to get us to laugh at her funny ways. Then sometimes there is no Rita around at all. She likes her quiet times where she will go outside and take a stroll in the pasture just talking to herself as if there are other people listening. Rita loves old fashioned stuff. Dressing up in a cape and bonnet and going out to be with the horses. Sitting face to face and talking to them. Another thing that Rita loves is driving the oldest and slowest machinery on the farm. That way she doesn't need to drive so fast and try to catch up with the others in the field. She loves taking her time. Rita has a great passion for little children and loves her younger siblings. We are so glad to have you in our family. Your ways have taught us alot about life. You have taught us to enjoy work and not just rush through and see how fast you can get it done.
Rita we love you and hope you have a wonderful year ahead. May you enjoy what life has in store for you and hold on to Jesus who is the authour and finisher of everything we do.
Here are some photos of what Rita loves doing.Being with her horse, eating, crafts, friends, outdoor fun and just simply standing and thinking
Love Dad,Mom and your family
