The Good Stuff

Thanks for bearing with me yesterday and for your words of encouragement. I am so happy to report that today has been a better day...not perfect...but better. My head and my heart are in a better place.

I've noticed a trend in my posting style. When I post something particularly heavy one time I'll usually come back with something much lighter in the next. Have you noticed that? I don't know if that makes me come across as manic-depressive (I'm not). I like to think of it as being more reflective of life...some days are hard, some days are good.

And today I'd like to talk to you about some good stuff. Stuff like....


- Friends like Brian and Angie who had has over for a delightful meal at their house along with a few other friends. Good fellowship.

- Friends like Matt & Callie. Matt was kind enough to loan us his technological knowledge and was able to set up wifi for us so we can do Netflix instant streaming (we're LOVING it and thinking of dropping Directv). Mr. Matt helps us with all our computer/technology issues. (And he sets us up with some awesome coffee that he's roasted himself). And, Callie is a trusted and dear friend with whom I can share so much. She is a strong woman of faith and prayer. She's creative. And, she's an awesome mom.

- Friends like Russel and Selena. As they are getting ready to move across the country, they surprised me the other day by stopping by with some boxes of toys their boys have outgrown. It was like Christmas as my boys rummaged through the boxes.

They brought us this guy too. Scary looking, but made for boxing/punching practice. Great for using up some small boy energy.

Signs of Spring
Need I say more?

Hydrangea buds

The rhubarb is already making it's appearance!

My sweet boys

Ok - We'll include the dog too. She's a good girl. She makes me nutty with her barking sometimes. But, I wouldn't trade her for anything. She is so faithful and so loving.

Moments in time
Not merely temporal - these last into eternity.

Have a blessed day.


  1. Oh so sweet. Those pics of the boys are so cute. Love all their smiles. That is enough to brighten anyone's day.

  2. Lovely! I'm so glad yesterday was a better day! Have fun today and enjoy the spring weather. We're still covered in snow but your pictures give me hope. :)
