Finding Time For Each Other In A Busy Life

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

Relationships require tender loving care to stay strong. RancherMan & I are 25+ years in love, y’all. It makes us smile that so many people (including complete strangers) comment that we must be newlyweds.

But like any relationship, it doesn’t just grow on its own. We take steps to keep it strong, we make sure to find time for each other.

Keeping Your Relationship strong by finding time for each other. #TexasHomesteader

What Is The Definition Of ‘Mother’? Lessons I’ve Learned

by Texas Homesteader ~

I’ve learned some important lessons about motherhood. I’ve learned it’s much more than being the woman giving birth to a child. Much more!

Not all mothers were present at their child’s birth. There are some amazing moms out there – whether biological moms who have been there from day one to moms who came into their child’s life later.

There are adoptive moms, grandmothers raising their grandchildren and so many more.

What I've learned about being a mom. You don't have to give birth to that child to be his mother. #TexasHomesteader

Surfside Beach, TX: Make Time To Spend With Family

by Texas Homesteader ~

In a continuous push to purposefully spend more time with our family, RancherMan & I always look for opportunities. We have a tradition to drive to one of our kids’ homes once a month to have dinner together & spend the day with them. They fix whatever they’d be having for supper that day, but with two more servings to accommodate RancherMan & me. We bring something to go with the meal such as dessert, a side dish, or maybe a bottle of wine – hostess’ choice!

We also try to drive to Oklahoma when we can to visit my dad, or to west Texas to visit my favorite aunt & uncle. There’s an important message here:

Spend time with the ones you love. If life is busy – make time! Tomorrow is never promised…

But recently RancherMan & I enjoyed a weekend at Surfside Beach on the Texas coast with several family members. What a special time! And RancherMan really loved the beach fishing too. (Always wearing his cooling UV-Protective Shirt of course)

Beach fishing. Make time to spend with family! Life's short and there's no promise of tomorrow. Recently we spent family time at Surfside Beach, Texas. #TexasHomesteader
