Oh, how I love this time of year. Not too hot, not too cold..The grass is green, baby birds are hatching and of course, the flowers are in bloom. There are no words to express how much I love flowers, whether they are fresh cut or taking over a field, they make me happy.

These flowers bring me hope for a bright future. I see color, cheer, love, serenity and joy in every flower. Hope does spring eternal from every bloom..I hope Spring brings you great gifts this year...

The Earth Laughs In Flowers.....e.e.cummings

 Laughter truly is like a flower. Both makes us smile, both are beautiful, both bring joy and happiness, both have the ability to brighten someone's day and both are part of God's creation.  Imagine life without laughter and flowers,  I can't do it.. I have no doubt, God knew how important these two things would play in the lives of each and every person.

 I am so thankful every giggle I have ever heard, in fact, some laughter is so beautiful that it makes others laugh as well. Flowers, make an ordinary yard, an extraordinary yard. A painting or picture of flowers brightens a room and fills it with color and warmth.. As you can see, I would not want to live one day without these beauties in my life.
                                Ranunculus are so delicate and layered with beauty

I hope your day is filled with lots of laughter and some beautiful flowers. I wish you a blessed weekend.

Our Little Lovies....

All kids have lovies, and with 6 kids, we have collected our fair share of lovies over the past 21 years, These precious stuffed animals, blankets, and zippers have comforted all six of my kids through bad dreama, teething, tripa to the ER, long car rides, scary movies etc..You name it, these little creatures have played a very special part in each and every one of the kid's lives..

There have been a few losses, the most tragic was the loss of Piggy Sue, an adorable stuffed piggy that my oldest loved for many years. I allowed one of my children to take this piggy to Kindergarten for some occasion, and it was lost in the room and never returned..Now, all these years later, I still feel very guilty about the loss of this loved member of our family..Hopefully, one day, my oldest will forgive me.. My hubby and I have retrieved many a blanky from the trash bin, a preschool and even a McDonalds, and it has always been our pleasure to return these to their rightful owners in our home.

I admit, it has been sad to see many of the kiddos grow up and put their lovies in boxes, on top of a shelf, in a wicker chest or just left in the bed for those special times. Still, most of the kids still hold their special animal, blanky or zipper close by..Time may pass, but I know each of these kiddos has a lifetime of memories with their special lovey. I may get rid of a lot of things from the past one day, but you can be sure each and every lovey will always have a place in my heart and in  my home..
