because of this......

because of this ...... 
i can sleep with my windows open ......
listen to the sweet singing of birds ......
watch the first awakenings of the lightening bugs .....
& watch the Memorial Day fireworks in our little town , from my bedroom window ......
 

i am so blessed!

the lace still remains.....

in the recent redo of the craftroom.....
the tiny remnants of lace remain .....
occasionally i think we just need to slow down & look at the "design" of our life ..... 
we are woven into fine intricate little details ...... just like these bits of lace ...... hoping my life shows the " fine details & my lace remains......."
 
.................. i am blessed !

when it all falls in place.....

it has taken me WEEKS to pull this craft room/office together ..... i have enjoyed the transformation of a place that is truly me ..... i am being honest too when i confess to you all .... i probably will still mess up the entire house when i craft projects ..... that's just me & i have chosen to embrace & accept it !!! 

 and my Mom is always close by to cheer me on ..... my best friend .... my cheerleader!
i can hear her in my times of discouragement .... " you just have to come up with a better mousetrap"
 

................................... i am blessed !

as the sun fades......

yesterday as the sun started to fade ........ i reflected on an ordinary day ...... turned in to a blessed day ...... church ... the grocery .... finishing up projects .....  and my heart was just overwhelmed with gratitude in the ordinary ..... 

i am blessed!!!!

it's about this.......

let's face it ......... there are sweet memories of bonnets.... little lace dresses ...... Easter baskets & hunting eggs .... and those memories are precious & priceless ........ but ........... it's about this ......
" then came the morning ......."
 
.................. i am blessed !

we just have days......

sometimes we just have days .... you know what I mean ..... the ones where we just struggle !    
days where whatever we choose to do just seems to be the wrong decisions ......
i have chosen lately to scatter seeds ........ but these tiny little seeds can , at times be challenging !
thankful that at that very last moment .......  scattering becomes easier !
 

..................... i am blessed!

Spring dreaming.....

the sweet smell of Spring in the air ...... yesterday I stood in the yard to just breath deeply ...... smell the dirt & soak in the sunshine .......... my days are dreaming of doing this in my yard ..... not sure about the Mr...... 
.............. i am blessed !
