Serenity Sunday...week 53

Celebrate our heros on this Memorial Day.

"That's what it takes to be a hero, a little gem of innocence inside you that makes you want to believe that there still exists a right and wrong, that decency will somehow triumph in the end."
Lise Hand

**Happy Memorial Day friends. Spend some time enjoying your families and friends. Take time to remember your heros and pray for peace. Peace...takes dedication, patience, loyalty and above all, courage. **Peace, Tami

Serenity Sunday...week 52

"The trees are coming into leaf

Like something almost being said;

The recent buds relax and spread,

Their greenness is a kind of grief.

Is it that they are born again

And we grow old? No, they die too,

Their yearly trick of looking new

Is written down in rings of grain.

Yet still the unresting castles thresh

In fullgrown thickness every May.

Last year is dead, they seem to say,

Begin afresh, afresh, afresh."

- Philip Larkin, The Trees
**Somehow, in the craziness, I forgot to post, even Serenity Sunday, last week! What's up with that? Ever have those days when you are busy as a bee, but can't see much accomplishment? I'm having that kind of month. Like Grandma used to say, "the further I go, the behinder I get". My gardens are growing like crazy this year and I'm working on expanding a bit. I'm getting there, slowly but surely...** Peace, Tami

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child. ~Sophia Loren, Women and Beauty

The one thing children wear out faster than shoes is parents.
~John J. Plomp
Most mothers are instinctive philosophers. ~Harriet Beecher Stowe

For Heaven's's MAY!

The lilac's have been blooming for over a week...
great big purple flowers...wonderful scents...

My garden is growing and it's so much
earlier than it usually is...

The myrtle has the tiniest of purple blossoms...

...and the lily of the valley is in it's final stages
before the flowers burst and
the fragrance wafts into my window...

lavender is growing and it won't be long...

...and then this? The weather report says there is a chance of flurries...
say it ain't so!!! I'm probably not going to see any here at home, but rest assured that there will be snow within a few's just crazy...the wind has been howling all day. This was 64* here at my house and now ... this?? It must be a dream...a bad one!

Serenity Sunday...week 50

Because everything will be ok!

A simple piece of paper that my nephew
Zack found on the street yesterday.

Profound and elegant words,
that carry huge weight.
