September 2017 Day 24 Faith

Letting go and letting God can feel like a scary thing at first but 
who knows what beautiful things He has in store for us.

September 2016 Day 23 Wishes

On my walk, I found this dandelion for today's 
photo share.  
I added the  heart because at first glance; it's all I could see.
--Like seeing animals in clouds... this wish flower had a heart.   
I love how simple, little things can be  inspiring. 
Not only will I add this photo to my journal,  but also want to sketch it tonight 
along with a list of wishes.  

What are you wishing for?

September 2017 Day 22 Wonder, and Photo Quote

Hello friends,
Today I finished Volume 1 for my grandgirl.
I wasn't prepared to sit and cry while writing her story- but yet..I did.
So much gratitude welled up in me and  spilled over.  
I think it was the  wonder of it all?

  I take this baby bloomer to the garden often and rattle on about every flower, plant and weed
that we see.  She understands in smiles and jibberjabber.
As I wrote this page to her, I remembered my own Grandmother.  
She gave me a love for flowers and gardening too.  
I wonder... if being a growgirl can be passed generation
to generation. Time will tell. 

It's weighed on me to get her first full year recorded.
And today... it was finished! 
Volume two begins.  

 It will be even more fun now just keeping it up to date.  
More wonder to look for.
Which leads me to a picture quote to share:
The photo is of this  yellow garden spider that built her beautiful web right in front of the greenhouse
this week.  I have to remember to look out for it and not  run into it when I come and go.
Spiderwebs are so intricately  made and  well... they amaze me.  
Always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder.

September 2017 Day 21 The Competition

Tonight I'm sharing another favorite quote.  
It seemed appropriate on this little cactus because that's what competition between
friends or family becomes ... something that  sticks you and you pick and pick at it 
just trying to get it to stop bothering you.
Know what I mean?  
That's all I've got to say about that.

September 20 2017 Memory Keeping Sacred Moments

Tonight I'm journaling 
sacred moments as gratitudes that I also want to document and  give
to my grand girl someday.  
I've written about her in other books but this one- I 
bought special for her.  
I'm starting at the beginning of her life... so I have a whole year to catch up
before keeping it current.
Just this evening, I started printing special photos.  
So many sweet memories to write to her in these pages.   
Memories of her story through my eyes.
As I share this tonight, I'm wondering:
What are sacred moments for you?
