Praise be to the LORD,
for he has heard my cry for mercy.
Psalm 28:6 NIV
Greetings Sweet Friends,
Hope this finds you well and happy and
enjoying maybe some warmer weather,
and hope if you were without power you
have it back by now.
As I was writing my opening, I realized
I might as well make it my Thankfuls
now, or I would just wind up being
redundant. Pictures today are from
more of our Winter decor this year.
So on with my Thankfuls....
Wednesday of last week our Daughter
came to visit, you might remember, so it
was a whirlwind visit, but we made
the best of every minute and we didn't
spend time cooking and cleaning up.
We went out and we got take out and
ate off paper goods, so that we could
visit with the short time we had.
It just goes by all too quickly but
We are indeed Thankful for that
wee bit of time, as it certainly beats
not seeing her. lol
It has been Bitter/Sweet week for us,
as while my Daughter was here, which
we cherish so much, We also lost our
Dear Friend Arlene late last Thursday
Evening. As we were in the car leaving
Cracker Barrel, her Husband was so
sweet to call us, so that we could talk
to her for a few minutes...she could not
talk but she could hear us, because he
put the phone up to her ear, and he said
he could tell she heard us. Then about
an hour or so later he texted us that
she was gone. We are very sad for her
precious family, and for ourselves, but
We are Thankful for her, and what a
lovely person she was, and for 47 yrs.
of wonderful friendship that we had
with her, but Thankful that she is no
longer suffering and is with her sweet
Lord.....and having the time of her life,
I would bet....if I were a betting woman,
which I am not!! lol
Think we are all still trying to wrap
our mind around it, with melt downs
every so often......but that is to be
expected....but I know those who were
with her daily are having a much worse
time for sure. We want to reach out
via phone but what can we say really,
other than thinking of you and praying
for you. Just wish we could see them
and our comfort to them would
manifests itself iin hugs and tears,
cause there are no real words that
help when it is all so fresh.
Thankful for a sweet card from
a real time/blogger friend letting
me know she is going to be a
Grandmother this year. Pattie used
to attend our church years ago, and
we reconnected through blogging
somehow. The timing of her card
was just perfect, so think it was
divinely inspired, for sure.
Thankful our Daughter made it
back home safe and sound on
Saturday, and for what a great
time we had and that she had
with her brother and niece..
Thankful that I found just the
perfect amount of Beautiful
paper plates to set a nice table
for my Sister-in-laws Birthday.
Since our focus had been on our
Daughter's visit and it was such
a busy week...., when I realized
her Birthday was this Sunday,
not the next. So finding those in
my stash made it so much easier,
because by Saturday we were
pretty worn out.
Thankful that we had a nice evening
celebrating Susan's Birthday. We
had her favorite Beef Stroganoff
and Key Lime Pie.
Thankful for our nice clean porch
and being able to enjoy it so much
with the March winds a blowing!
Thankful we got to work in our
backyard again. We took off some
limbs and cut down some small trees
that were dead and broken in the
woods. Love watching the improvement
every time we work out there.
Thankful for 6 new cards we put
in our shop this week.
Thankful we got to work outside again
today, the weather was lovely and cool,
which makes it so delightful for us here
in Florida. We have to really enjoy this
great Spring like weather as the Hot
weather approaches all to quickly.
Thankful for my Daughters help....
since hubbies birthday is approaching
this weekend and it is very hard for
me to surprise him even if I order
online, he see's it.....so she has been
ordering things for me, so hopefully
he will be surprised.
Thankful for my Beautiful and Sweet
spirited Granddaughter(AKA lil darling)
who is turning 8 yrs. old yesterday.
Oh my goodness, I can hardly believe
it, she has just matured so much in
the past months, I think due to lots
of changes in her life.
With posterized affect
Well, that's it forCozy Place this week.
Thanks for droppin by.....
Oh, and Welcome to March.....
forgot all about that!
Love, Hugs and Windy
