My Finer Things….


Amy, over at Amy’s Finer Things hosts a Friday meme called “Finer things Friday.” This is been a strange week at the Ziegler Zoo, full of life’s ups and downs. Week’s like this make me realize the finer things in my life…. My boys.

I am talking about my husband and son of course.  They are the loves of my life and make everyday worth living.  Dale and I went to high school together, but didn’t start dating until we were almost out of college. God keep him in my life for all those years. I dated boys who were not right for me, but Dale was always there to listen when someone broke my heart.  Our senior year of college he and I went out over Christmas break and have been together ever since.

Mark is my miracle. I always knew I wanted to be a mommy, and from the moment  I saw him on that little screen I knew he was mine. A perfect blend of Dale and me. He has Dale’s eyes, which melt my heart. He makes me laugh everyday, he shows me what is important and makes me stop and realize the true “finer things”

And then there are my furry kids…. Sukey the wonder mutt and Simba the tank. They were my first children, they taught me to be a mommy.
