Since you stopped by, I will share the tiny jewels that adorn my life this week...
... the vibrantly colored fresh peppers and the wonderful smelling basil that I bought from the farm next door. I think of them as gifts, especially when I remember those living in the many drought stricken area of our country this summer.
I will cut them up and freeze them for future use.
...a picture my oldest granddaughter colored for me. It arrived in the mail yesterday and proudly I placed it on my kitchen refrigerator door. She is clearly learning to stay within the lines when she colors, and I like the way she added glitter at all the right places. What a treasure!
...remembering their laughter everytime I see this picture. They were listening to their older brother's singing card, at the restaurant where we celebrated his 18th birthday.
...the mint tea that our daughter made for us last evening. She cut the tea leaves from her plants and whipped up a delicious concoction. I poured it over ice and added a sprig of mint and a lemon slice. It was the perfect break in a hot, sticky day.
...the little bouquet by the sink, that I picked from my garden today.
...last but not least, the expectancy of the season coming next. I found this picture in a 2006 edition of Southern Lady Magazine. A moment that creates exquisite beauty for me today. I dream of sitting on one of these rockers as the sun is beginning to rise, and a cup of hot coffee in my hand. I look forward to cool, crisp mornings. But for now, I ask for grace to accept each moment as it comes.
Thanks for stopping by.
