Just wanted to share a quick glimpse of my next senior, a sweet girl I’ve known for a long time. Happy Weekend!
The name Sara means “princess.” As the oldest of three girls, I like to assume that I have the princess role in our family, but truthfully, the spoiling usually goes to this one, my youngest sister. She has never been punished for anything, and I don’t even think she had a cerfew in high school. (Mine was 9:00!!)
I guess I can’t blame my parents too much for this, however, because Sara really never is any trouble. Quite the opposite. She gives endlessly of her time, energy, and resources. She loves to serve others and meet their needs. She is always willing to help. I can still remember the days after I had my first baby, I’d call her and beg her to bring me some Chick-Fil-A and fold our massive piles of laundry–and she always did. I’ve been blessed with two GREAT sisters!
Sara is graduating this year with an education degree, specializing in special needs and learning disabilities. She is amazing with kids and I know she will make a fantastic teacher. I’m glad we got to have this fun little session to capture some pictures of her, since she usually avoids the camera with a vengeance.
Isn’t she pretty?
Every day as I pull out of my driveway or walk to the mailbox, I am greeted by a beautiful flowerbed next door brimming with these:
The beauty that strikes me is not just that of the flowers, but of their timing. As they were beginning to shoot out of the ground and race heavenward, their owner was beginning a new life of his own. A couple of weeks ago, we said goodbye to our dear neighbor and friend, Mr. White.
We miss him sorely, as does his family, but with Easter around the corner and signs of new life everywhere, we rejoice with him that he has found healing, freedom, and life everlasting. I can’t wait to dance around with him one day in the presence of our Savior.

We had a lovely, MUCH-needed weekend away at the lake this past weekend. My sister-in-law is in town from Denver, so we had the entire Ables family under one roof for two days. It was so much fun!
Most of our time was spent admiring these two little ones:
And if you are a mom, especially a mom to a little boy, doesn’t this melt your heart?? This boy loves his mama!
Check out some other Glimpses here. Have a great week!
This week’s Glimpse is of one of the talented and creative stylings of Little E. He looks so proud–and shouldn’t he be??
I love those sweet little hands and lips beyond description. Little E will be moving into a big boy bed soon. . . his mama will miss being able to zip him into his crib.
If you are a photographer and haven’t checked out the Chic Critique forum yet, be sure you do. I’m learning so much from those gals!
