It’s that time of year.. Current pictures of my grandkiddos is always a blessing and much appreciated. They certainly are a gift from God. As I continue on my journey of 100 days of thanks, I am grateful for the opportunity to observe their growth, and see them as I can. I applaud my children, for the great job of raising their children, in happy and nurturing households. Would you join me and others, this new school season and pray for all children that are going to school? For the little one’s in pre-school and daycare centers, and daycare providers and teachers.
Mother and child. My first born on July 4th. This was most likely taken on the 5th of July 1973.
“Happy Birthday, Mark! Love, Mom
Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits.
Psalm 103: 1-2
My heart is full, and holds much gratitude, for the blessings of opportunity to experience new adventures, in grandmotherhood.
On this very fine day
a tiny flower blossomed
from where she came
there was no longer room
her stay was complete
loved ones longed to see her face
with their arms they would embrace
the flower they were given
on this very fine day in May…
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in that secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be
We woke up this morning to a slight covering of snow. It is always a thrill for me to watch snow-falling. I recently saw a picture of a frozen bubbles,so I prepared myself for the moment of hoping to capture a frozen bubble. It didn’t happen, but for that moment, I was like a kid, with snowflakes in my hair, blowing bubbles and trying to take pictures. The older I get, my gratitude for each day and each year increases. The simple things that I have taken for granted, have become so much more meaningful. I am often in awe of the grandeur of nature, in the kind face of a human, in the gentle tone of a caring individual, the miracle of an infant, and sweet endearing look from a furry friend. Unconditional love… May we enter the New Year with Hope planted in our hearts and continued prayer for a better tomorrow.
May God In His Wisdom
And Infinite Love,
Look Down on You Always
From Heaven Above
May He Send You Good Fortune,
Contentment & Peace
And May All Your Blessings

Through the eyes of a child
Meeting this little boy, was my most recent magical moment. I did not wave a wand and was not magically whisked away. It took planning and preparation,but my heart got filled up and it will carry me, for awhile.
