My Favorite Place on Earth

Zemanta Related Posts Thumbnail

This morning we are loading up the car and heading to Whidbey Island – my favorite place on earth. I have a lifetime of memories there from walking the beach as a little girl, to watching my own children grow up there. It’s amazing to me that one place has seen so much of my family’s life.

Here is the song Isaiah sang for Noah and Katie at their wedding reception; I know I’m his mom, but it really is beautiful. I shared it on my One Thankful Mom Facebook page, but I know that not all of you follow me there. If you like the song, please share it – and be sure to “Like” my FB page too!

Have a wonderful day, friends.

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    I hope I don't seem like a fangirl, but I'm such a big fan of Isaiah's voice, phrasing and ability to interpret a song. I was so excited to hear this cover. I've shown his cover of "Middle of June" to a lot of people and they've been super impressed. I write for a pretty popular country music blog and I'm determined to find a way to justify a way to feature him on there, even if it's a stretch, since he doesn't do country music.:)

    Whidbey Island looks amazing. The scenic shots you share are so expansive; I can see why it would bring you and your family such joy. Perhaps one day we will visit there. We live on the East Coast and love the beaches (many are just 20 minutes away) but this, this looks amazing. Enjoy your time away from the everyday tasks. Hope Russ can stay as long as possible.
