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.
in the simple life I live, some days that is
i explore and look around
last week they caught my eye
and this is what i found..
to nestle in a flower
and sit contently for hours
maybe it was peering eyes of the intruder
that gave reason for hesitation
to leave it’s place of safety
on the high place
of a hollyhock plant…
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.
I am linking to the challenge of Magic at the Daily Post..
I recently paid a visit to this visitor’s center on Veteran’s Day. It was my first time there and I was quickly greeted with Oregonian style hospitality. We were in town for the parade and I had about an hour before the parade started. I decided to explore. The street sidewalks were filling up with chairs and people, so I ambled on my way, destination unknown at the time. This window display caught my eye and there I stayed long enough to chat with the gracious ladies that offered me a hot beverage. I was too excited to eat or drink anything at the time, because I wanted to take a few pictures, to capture the gorgeous carousel horse. This horse named Lightning and the fish will eventually be housed in a building that is being constructed. I definitely will go back at another time, so that I can look at the many brochures at my leisure. I highly recommend visiting this Albany, Oregon, visitors center, if you need any kind of information on what to do or where to go while in the area.
