When I clicked on Bekah's blog and read these words they struck me as incredibly deep for one so young- ok she is 22 but c'mon how many young women you know can express this so well?

"The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have passed at home in the bosom of my family."
-Thomas Jefferson

"Sometimes, when you can't read the thoughts running through your own head...when the view through your eyes is hazy and you only see a broken path ahead, they are the souls that ground you...they read your heart with understanding and hold your hand until your path is stable. Those who are true family, can never be replaced, imitated or discarded. These are your people....your blood through the generations. To deny family is to deny yourself a gift that was formed for you before you took your first breathe."

Profound. You have raised an incredible young woman.

I have to agree with you,Lea.
My kids' writing amazes me-all of them.
Truly a blessing from the Lord!!!

Very profound, indeed.....You are very blessed to have such a close knit family...I watch it from a distance for I can only wish that I had experienced anything close to it. You are a blessing to know, Autumn, simply due to knowing that you are a true "earth mother" giving your children a spiritual experience while on this earth. :o)
