Saturday I got a phone call from my neighbor,
"meet me at the gate"
We have a backyard gate
that her sweet husband put in,
so that we wouldn't have to go to the road
when we visited each other :)
Her daughter was given these gorgeous roses
from her students on the last day of school.
She was leaving for a couple of days,
so she gave them to her Mom . . .
who then divided them up and gave me
this beautiful bouquet.
How sweet and thoughtful is that!
Well, yesterday I was in tears all day
and started a post to say that I was
stopping my blog.
Life has been just so hard lately.
Then this morning brought with it
sunshine and hope.
The thing is, I love my blog . . .
and all of the incredible people
that I have met through blogging.
How could I even think of quitting?
You are all blessings in my life . . .
and if I quit, I think that I would soon
find myself regretting my rash decision.
So, I hope you don't mind terribly,
but I think that you are stuck with me.
I'm a mess at times . . .
but I guess we all have those times.
I've been walking you around our
little country home.
These are the grape vines.
Everything is young but growing well . . .
this is my row of green beans.
I have two rows of tomatoes.
Nappa (Chinese cabbage)
and this is only a third of the garden :)
Today was a perfect day for washing sheets.
Have you heard the saying . . .
Everything comes out in the wash?
That's what this morning was like . . .
everything forgotten and the slate wiped clean.
We had a bad weekend
filled with sickness and fears,
but with the sunshine and
the fresh breezes, came a new day
and with it came renewed health.
Hallelujah, God's mercy are new everyday.
Just living life one day at a time,
