a "grand little" week.....

it was a "grand little" week last week.........two of the littles were here for three days.....and on Wed. we added a third..........the day was spent at the creek searching for "indian beads"....... and tossing rocks into the creek.....chasing sandals down the creek, floating with the current........and most of all......filling my heart with joy..........................................................................................
& it was a full.....fun packed week......filled with laughter...squeals of delight....& memories!
.......................................................... i am blessed !

a giant of a man....

i remember the day when someone told me......"your Dad was so strong, he could hold up the corner of a building"......i was actually told that when he was at his weakest........................what an uplifting moment to be brought back to the time when he was strong....when i could dance with him on his shoes....when he could lift me anywhere i wanted to reach....when he showed me how to do the broad jump.....when he could work with stone, till his hands cracked...then reach up with those hands to give me a hug & bite on his finger as he gave me a love pat...................when he reached for his tall glass of sweet ice tea.......................and without a doubt...EVER..........................i knew i was loved.....miss you Daddy!!! ...................                        .i am blessed!

spinning..........

it seems i have just been spinning over the last few months.........so why not just make it my total theme!........................................with illness last fall............a computer crash............adjusting to new (used) computer................a new ipad that i totally love, but having a hard time learning how to use for my blog & picturetrail......................and just plain, brain freeze..............................then, i turn around it has been seven months since i posted last...(shame on me)........................................but, the one good thing...i feel refreshed, with a new attitude to start over......hoping to keep up with things around here & adjusting to new technology......................i have missed you sweet friends!!!..............................................................i am blessed!

when the birds came home.......

while being unable to feed my birds ......................... this is what i saw .................. empty feeders ....... no flittering of wings ........ no sweet songs outside my window ..........................
 this is how i feel about my fine feathered friends .................... i missed them ....... their company & sweet songs of encouragement .................................. it had been so long that i am sure they thought i had abandoned them ........................................
i must say .................... they have come back home to me ............. and ............. i am blessed !

quiet moments......

it has been recovery time ...... surgery was almost a week and a half ago ........ first time i have had a surgery ...... so this has been a humbling ....... let others do for you kind of time in my life ........ thanks heavens it was an outpatient, but more of a surgery than expected ......................... i have been recovering well and hope to be back to normal soon (whatever that is ) .................. i of course am behind AGAIN for our next open house tour ................... but ................. mr. prairie blue has forbidden me to stress and as he says "get jacked out of shape" ................... so i am trying to keep calm ...... working on some mustard seed charm bracelets while building my strength and stamina for stand up, moving around type of things ....... isn't that kind of ironic, mustard seed .... the sign of "Faith"  .... hmmmm maybe i need to listen !
thank you for all of your prayers & lifting me up .......................... i am blessed !
