A Few Things I Saw Yesterday


-- a good word in Hebrews...
and also my Lent study.

I saw the date on my phone reminding me ,, exactly 8 years earlier
was the very last time  I got to  hear  Momma
say she loved me... give me a kiss and just a few
short hours later;
 I watched her go see Jesus.    

I saw Trent; my techy geek son come and fix the printer
in a matter of  nanoseconds.



I saw snow on the Chevy,
and icicles hang from our shabby olde farmhouse.  
I saw coffee steam in a greenhouse,
and birds shuck sunflower seeds on a rusty cart.

I saw Miss Priss lay...
this cute little egg that will be whisked with two more
into  cuppycakes this afternoon.
I saw tracks everywhere,
corgis, aussie, birds, bunny and deer.
I saw tulips shiver and 

spent morning glories wave
in Winter's breeze.
I saw this guy at the door holding a bag
of Taco Bell at lunch.  
I saw birds wearing red jackets.  
(for  Jeanie)
I saw opportunity to share 
what we have.
I saw this bell ringer chase an Alpha 
right off the couch.  
And I saw this girl blend in like a
chameleon.  

I'm thankful today for so many beautiful moments
that make  ordinary days
-extraordinary.

Hi Lea, Thank you for sharing your days. Those dates are still painful though aren't they. You are certainly having some cold shivery days. I never fail to be amazed at those little red cardinals, makes me smile. Lovely pics. How much has that puppy dog grown!!
Keep cozy and warm.
