Hi, I'm Lynda.
Thanks for visiting Flowers for Francis.
This little blog is my feeble attempt at sharing my 3 great loves: my faith, my family, and the outdoors...in no particular order although the latter came first.
I claim the mountains of Kentucky as my home, and just recently moved back there from Missouri. I should've been named Heidi because if I can't see mountains, whether it's the Ozark hills or the Appalachians, I get homesick.
I love doing anything outdoors, which nowadays, mostly involves keeping my boys from disappearing into the woods and falling out of trees.
I'm married to Tom, who also loves being outside, but not during what he calls "yellow-jacket season". He's my biggest asset and much funnier and more talented than I could ever hope to be. After almost 20 years of marriage, we are starting to get used to each other...but not quite.
In 2016, we became parents through adoption again when our youngest child, Dominic, was born. We like to think of him as the cherry on top of our sundae.
It took us 15 long years before God finally put our family together and now we homeschool, raise chickens, and negotiate our way through the minefield of parenting. Getting to this point in our life has not been easy, but as a result of the journey, we have learned to trust in God's timing, to persevere in prayer, and to look for God's love in the natural wonders that he tries to reveal to us each day.
