My Memorial Day Blessings...



I walked to the mailbox, flipped through the pieces of mail, discovered an envelope with the most creatively painted tags in it. It was a giveaway that I won from Laurie at "charmingdesigns.blogspot.com/". She is an exceptional artist producing many beautiful and unique creations. I enjoy each visit to her blog because of the many small, one- of- a -kind masterpieces that I find there. Visit it and I am sure you will agree with me. I am thrilled to have these delicately painted tags in my possession. Laurie, your gift is included in my blessing list for the weekend.


After an eventful visit to the local ice cream shop on Friday evening, we put the three little ones we were babysitting, into the bathtub before bedtime. The littliest one was thrilled to now be old enough to sit in the big tub with her siblings. This smile definitely is included in my list of holiday blessings.


My two pots of flowers that I picked up from the farm greenhouse a few miles away. The young lady who owns this small shop definitely has an eye for color and texture. These pots are so beautifully done and fit right into my blessing category for the weekend.


Last but not least, was the perfectly designed sunset that graced the sky on our Saturday evening motorcycle ride. A maginificent blessing from the Master Creator Himself, for our pleasure and enjoyment. Thank you God for this unexpected surprise. In the midst of daily life these blessings encouraged my heart, this Memorial Day weekend.

Some of our blessings are not even evident to us yet. We have a drastic situation in our family now, due to the economy and we know there are hidden blessings there, but such heartache at the time.
