Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri


My Small Wish List

When I was younger, I never imagined what my life would be like.  Some people have it all planned out; the romantic courtship, fairytale wedding, 2.5 children, retirement in Florida.  Nope, not me.  I just lived day to day.  Still do.  Now, that I'm getting older, so much older, I long for those carefree days.  Sounds like an 80's song, doesn't it?  So, I've a few things on my Wish List.  Some I can make happen, others I have no control over.  But, it is fun to imagine.

*Go to a South Pacific island, alone with my husband, for at least a week.

*Ride in a Hot Air Balloon.

*Take Jack to Hawaii.

*See the word "orphan" become non-existent.

*Lose 20 pounds.

*Re-live my children's birth days.  (Even the ones that passed away.)

*Visit Venice.

*Watch Seth parent a son who is just like him.  (You have to know him to understand this one.)

*Go to a South Pacific Island, alone with my husband, for at least 10 days.

*See Joy master tying her shoes.

*Live in a foreign country with all my children for at least 6 months.

*Watch Jordan marry a man who believes she is the best thing since sliced bread.

*Hike part of the Appalachian Trail.

*See Eva become a lawyer.  (She has an answer for everything.)

*Listen to Ivy play classical piano, once she masters it.

*Read a whole novel, within a week.  (I haven't done that since 2003 when I read The Count of Monte Cristo when Mike was out of town for 3 days.  I didn't feed or bathe the children during that time.  I just read the book, and Mike had no idea I neglected his offspring.)

*Work in an African orphanage.

*Re-live my childhood.

*Go camping with the whole family.  (Not on Mike's to-do list)

*Have one more day with my dad.

*See all my children serve their Savior.

*Run a marathon.  (I know that will never happen because of my shins.)

*Visit the place I grew up the first 10 years of my life...Mentor, Ohio.

*Go to a South Pacific Island, alone with my husband, for at least 2 weeks.

I'm not asking for much, am I?

6 kind words:


Love your list! Aren't Longaberger Baskets made in Mentor or near Mentor?

Or is Mentor near Cleveland? I attended a Steris training class there. Stayed at a nice golf resort.

I pray that you get the island trip one day in the very near future.
My Jordan did marry a wonderful man and I pray the same for your Jordan. Don't you just love that name?

I would like the hot air balloon ride. I would also like to skydive at least once!

The weight loss is my own gong struggle!

Praying that God would bless you and your husband with the island vacation for two!


I heart your list!

Except for camping with the fam which we do quite often, I am right there with you. 'Specially that South Pacific Island deal. ;) Not gonna happen anytime soon as we are on our way back to China :)

Learning Together at Home

I can almost feel the sea breeze blowing across my face. ;)

I have one of those children too, that i'm praying has at least one just like him:) As you will be fun to watch them parent a child like themself:) Don't get me wrong....I LOVE this child, It's just that he's the one that was the 'pot stirrer' (is that a word?) if things were going along nicely....he'd stir the pot. He was just was never "easy" And we just seemed to clash most days:( I say that to my shame! Loved your list.....and dream of those island getaways.

No Greater Love

That is a funny, heartwarming, sad, joyful list all rolled into one. What a neat post.


Aw. What a list! It conjures up a lot of different emotions. Very moving post!
