Beautiful Spring Time......

I must begin by saying I am still deeply touched by all the encouraging and kind words from so many of you. Your beautiful sentiments were like gentle hugs.....thank you so much. You know, all we hear are the ills of the world and the lack of kindness it holds, but I wish for just one moment, just one little moment folks could just experience the heart felt kindness of so many of you precious women out there....you indeed are special. I also wish one day to meet many of you. I would just love that for sure!

Mother's service was absolutely beautiful beyond words. Lots of tears of both sadness and joy, she will be missed so deeply....so deeply. I will forever remember my Sweet Mother's smile and all she was and is to me. She indeed was a phenomenal woman here on earth and I just know she is graciously continuing her work in heaven above.... At this point, I ask myself just how will I go on with this life without her.....I know it will simply be one day at a time. I will miss my Dear Sweet Mother so, oh my how I will miss her so.

Our inner court garden is looking so pretty with these little purple flowers. Looking at them reminds me of the delicate shade of a purple jelly bean. Spring is such a beautiful time of year with its many colorways of beautiful flowers, mild weather, longer evenings, picnics, long drives, all the beautiful things that spring brings.

I have so much to do this week at Mom and Dad's home. We girls plan to do some spring cleaning and helping Dad with his "to do list". Once again thank you so much my beautiful blogging friends. I am looking forward to seeing all your beautiful gardens and crafts this season. Have a beautiful week.....

Friends and flowers
both are to be treasured.
And when it comes to
expressions of our affection
for special friends....I
think that flowers
are the nicest things
we can give.

Heaven Has A New Angel.....

My Dear Sweet Mother went to Heaven on yesterday evening with her family by her side. I cannot begin to tell you just how beautiful she was with her almost angelic face, it was as though she had fallen into a restful and peaceful sleep. I just know Heaven is rejoicing in welcoming someone as beautiful as my Mother. I only pray to live the beautiful life she led touching so many that was blessed to cross her path.

Hear my cry, O God;
attend to my prayer.
From the end of the earth I will cry to you,
when my heart is overwhelmed;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

Psalm 86: 3-4

Thank you all of my wonderful blogging friends....you are so appreciated.

Resting In His Promises......

Hello to all of you..... It has been a full and trying week for my family. My Dear Sweet Mother is now in Hospice Care and we have been spending every available moment with her. As I sit there with her I am comforted in knowing so many are remembering Mother in prayer. I am daily resting in the promises of our Lord and Saviour.

I am so grateful to all of you....thank you so much my sweet blogging friends for all your kindness and concern. I brag on you all a whole bunch, simply because you are wonderful. I promised you a six word memoir. I really loved the thought of this meme......a delightful one.

A Memoir: A True Treasure.... Knowing Thine Self.

In the day when I cried out,
You answered me, and made me
bold with strength in my soul.

Psalm 138:3

Have a lovely coming weekend....I will talk to you soon.

Pink Roses and Butterflies....

Hello to all of you! Another brand new week we have with a day already gone! My week thus far is going wonderful and I sure hope you are truly enjoying yours. My last post was filled with showers, but the rain has cleared and it is all lovely blue skies with puffy marshmallow clouds.....absolutely beautiful! I am so looking to spring and cannot wait to photograph all the lovely spring flowers the season brings.

I would like to share a brand new blog with you all! Her name is Idalia and her blog is "Chronicles of Yaya Orchid" I just love that title.....just beautiful Idalia! Drop by and say hello, you will be so glad you did! Idalia has a beautiful heart that shines clearly through her comments to me and others and now through her very own blog! She also is a crafter.....a girl after thine own heart!! :o) So pay her a visit and leave her a great big welcome!

I've been tagged by "lots of little things" for a meme! Hmmmm this one really has me thinking...the meme is my memoir using only six words! I am really excited about this one....a real challenge though I must say! :o) Look for it on my very next post! This month also marks the month of my one year blogging anniversary! Wow one full year.....so hard to believe! I will be doing something special to celebrate this special time and will let you know soon just what that will be. Continue to enjoy the rest of your week.....

And God saw every thing
that He had made,
and, behold, it was very good.

Genesis 1:31
