Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.” -Anne Frank
“Life is short and we never have enough time for gladdening the hearts of those who travel with us. Oh be swift to love! Make haste to be kind.”

About sparrowjourney

Christian homeschooling mom to three boys, married to my best friend, John, for over 20 years. I love gardening without gloves, learning history with my kids, cooking with lots of butter, serving others, great books, rich coffee, studying the Bible, camping outdoors, scrapbooking, vintage home decor, the smell of rain and cut grass, authentic people, poetry, laughing until your sides hurt, and babies. oh and black licorice is pretty awesome.
