Mother's Day Thoughts

Mother's Day for me is a time of reflection. My family lives 3000 miles away, which means I'm not with them on Mother's Day (although my mom and I usually talk on the phone). So, I usually spend this day, quietly, relecting on time's past. My favorite memories are of those times that Sarah, Danielle, Timothy and Elizabeth came out of Sunday School with a marigold planted in a styrofoam cup and handed it to me. It made me feel special and it touched my heart that I was blessed with these children. I can see these flowers so clearly as if it just happened yesterday....yellows and burnt oranges.
I still have the homemade cards that they made for me too. I keep a special box filled with those things along with old pictures. I hope to sometime sit down and put together a scrapbook. Yes, Mother's Day is a day of looking back and a day of thanking the Lord for all our blessings. It's a very special day. And, I thank God for my mother and for the healthy children he so richly blessed me with.

Petunias and Hot Summer Weather

It's been two years since I have updated my blog. I had gotten busy with my Etsy shop which took a lot of my time. Just lately, I started missing writing on my blog. So, here I am with my first post in two years! 
 I was looking back at my early summer pictures and was surprised at how much my petunias have grown. the above picture was taken in early June. 

Here it is late August and they have grown so much. They've needed a lot of water and tender loving care during our very hot summer weather (over 100 degrees most days). 

A few times, I thought they might not make it. Glad they did, as I love looking out my window at their beauty.

Hello September!

Hard to believe that we are leaving summer behind already. But, welcome September! Inching ever closer to my favorite season of the year.

September days are here With summer's best of weather And, autumn's best of cheer
