Stroud Farm McArthur Arkansas

On our way to the Natchez Trace we thought we would drop by our friend Kim Stroud's Family Farm and Cemetery in Franklin Arkansas where her grand parents were buried.

Antelope Canyon Page Arizona

We had a great time hiking the canyon, what a great place in February with the sun at noon.  This place is spectacular.

A day in the life of Mesilla Valley Habitat Building

The trusses are going up on house #4.

The slab is almost done on the 5th house here in Mesilla Valley.
This is the prettiest place to build, with the Organ Mountains in the east and the desert so much a part of the landscape.

We have 5 houses here in Mesilla Valley and they are in pristine condition.

They always save the hurricane clips for me, thank you Pete.

Meghan, how great it is to have you and Tom with us.

Thanksgiving was great with the whole team.

The Aquatic Center for $1 a day you have the facility to work out in.

The Big guy is always happiest when he is on the build site.

THE TRAIN: At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel by our side. As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of your life. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone. Others will step down over time and leave a permanent vacuum. Some, however, will go so unnoticed that we don't realize they vacated their seats. This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells. Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers requiring that we give the best of ourselves.
The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the best way, love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are. It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.
I wish you a joyful journey.
