It is a raining, overcast and cool this Monday morning. This kind of morning makes starting out my week, a bit more difficult. Maybe it is because I am now 56 years old...maybe that is why I am feeling a bit sluggish today. Is this what 56 feels like? They keep sending me the AARP cards in the mail. I'm not sure I like that. Do you...all of you out there who are now in your 50s?
If my mother was reading this post right now, she would be saying, "think what all the years you have to be thankful for, instead of thinking how old you now are." I know she is right...but I am feeling a bit old today.
I am grateful though for the creatively done, homemade card that I received from one of my friends. She makes so many pretty cards. She knows I like glitter...just little touches of glitter.
Our youngest daughter got a diamond from this fine young man. After a four year, long distance relationship, he asked her to marry him. We congratulate both of them and look forward to their June 2011 wedding.
I really like the soft pink rose that sits by my computer and shares it lovely fragrance. It is my favorite flower, and it makes me smile just having it on my desk.
I couldn't believe these two little ones were actually holding hands as they sat on my kitchen table on Saturday morning. How cute is that???
Outside my bathroom window, is this gorgeous tree. I took this picture on Saturday afternoon. Do any of you expert gardening friends of mine, know what this tree is? The blue skies and the fragrant blossoms created joy for me this weekend. I know life is not all clear blue skies and sunshine. I know we need the rain to have everything grow. I know time keeps moving and years keep adding up. I know...I know...
I am thankful today...really I am. I am thankful for any of you who take the time to visit this simple, ordinary blog. You...are a blessing to me in rainy and sunny days.
