Gratitudes 45



A few random blessings........
 
.... walks without chiggers
 
bagful of ribbons and vintage lace flowers
 
 
little girl giggles
 

this at 4 a.m. 
 
Visiting with Gardener woman
 
huge flocks of geese
 
the wonder of it all.....
 
hearing his heart beating under my head
and
sweet moments like these: riding bike together and  sharing bottled water
a bag of M&M's and  peanutbutter crackers.
 
 
Writing my heart out,
and covering it up with gesso.
 
 
today's lunch.
 
working alongside Myguy
and that we
gee and haw
well together.
 
The three donors-
 
buzzing bumblebees
 
sleeping like a baby last night and waking
so refreshed.
 
the scent of fresh cut grass with onion.
 
that good feeling of
being tuckered smooth out
 after mowing all day.
 
buttered peas and carrots. 
(my favorite)
 
frying a  bacon egg samich
for Tony
 
and my music man saying,
"Cmere Momma, I want you to hear  this song."
 
the very  pink sunset....
 
new coffee- donut shop.
 
prayering friends.
 
my wonderful kids-
the whole lot of em. 
 
Time with my "Shell"
 
 Whinnys brays and cockadoodledoos.
 
A wren on the dinnerbell
 
Big green eggs
and scrumptious green egg samiches with
lots and lots of dill pickle
 
Hearing my favorite crotchrocket
come up the driveway.
 
And that he  wears his helmet
always.
 
a special  card of friendship,
and divine bag of pumpkin spice tea...
 
for pretend muffins baked
in her cardboard oven.
 
For so much love...
I
thank you God.

How's the baby doing, Lea?

Your contentment & joy spills over into my heart this evening. I need to go to bed this way. (I was WAY too "high" to sleep after watching the debate last night and am pretty tired.)

Glad you can hear those bees a buzzing and those precious whinnys and brays. Allybug looks so happy and contented, such special times spent with grammy. As always you lift me up. Thank you dearest.
