Wild Flowers

My sister-in-law said,
"I am going outside to take a walk, do you have a vase?"

A little while later she brought this beautiful flower arrangement  back inside.

(she is very talented.....
everything in the vase came out of our woods)

I was so surprised by their beauty....I started taking photos of them.

I liked the cross on the wall in the background!

Ahh...The simplicity of flowers growing in the woods.

Remembering my Grandfather

This is a pic of my grandfather enjoying time on his porch...
His 26 grandchildren called him "Big Daddy"

He was a respected man that was married over 60 years with 8 kids....when younger, he had to walk to work, no indoor plumbing, and worked in the copper mines....he had a tough but happy life!

He passed away in the early 1980's

When I saw this old photo...
I smiled and thought "Hello"!

I feel like an old photo is a treasure.

Relaxing after Mothers Day

I snapped this pic of Donny the horse dog stretching out to relax.

I enjoyed Mothers Day weekend....eating out twice...also went to Church with my daughter....and talked on the phone with my son who is stationed in California. 
(However, I will always miss my Mom!)

This weekend had more activity than I have had in 7 weeks now!

So I will rest today like Donny is....but not on the floor?

It is so nice to be gaining strength....I am almost back to normal after the baclofen pump implant surgery.

and very Thankful to be a Mom!

My Daughter Recieves Her Masters Degree

Leah shed her heels by the end of the day!
Leah and friends

I am thrilled that my daughter achieved her Masters in Taxation Degree....
She has worked very hard for 6 years
We heard an inspiring speech....bag pipe band played....
As 4000 students they did not call out individual names....but they stood in groups by their degrees.

It was nice to go to the Georgia Dome....
the ceremony ended with streamers as seen above.

Whew, talk about a crowd of people leaving the Dome at the same time!
However, We Still had a wonderful day!

A Symphony of Seasons-Blog Tour and Giveaway

Connie's poems have touched me ever since I first virtually met her....
So I am happy to be in this blog tour!

I think this book would be a great Mother's Day gift!

This post is the sixth stop of Connie Arnold’s Book Release Blog Tour for A Symphony of Seasons, a collection of poems about music and each of the seasons through the year. A Song to be Sung is from the “Songs of Each Season” section.

A Song to be Sung

Every day there’s a song to be sung,
A song for the old as well as the young,
A song for peace and an end to strife,
And for the joy and beauty of life.

We each can have a song to sing,
A song in winter and also in spring,
A song for summer and autumn days,
And for the Creator, songs of praise.

Music can soothe a troubled mind,
A song of love, gentle and kind,
To ease the discord of pain and grief,
And pleasantly offer some sweet relief.

A song of life can be sung each day,
A song of thanksgiving as we pray,
A joyful song sung to God above
For His mercy, forgiveness, grace and love.

Connie is a writer, musician, wife, mother and grandmother who uses her writing to help her cope with the challenges of each day living with lupus and fibromyalgia. She looks for the positive things in life that are uplifting and inspiring, and turns them into poems that encourage others. She is also the author of three other poetry books, her first children’s book, Animal Sound Mix-up, and three more accepted for future publication.

Leave a comment to be entered into prize drawings for a Vivaldi Four Seasons CD and a hummingbird suncatcher wind chime. Additional entries can be earned for comments left on the other blogs during the tour and for sharing this post or any of the posts during the tour on Facebook or Twitter (be sure to post a comment here when you do that so you'll get your extra entries).

The tour schedule is posted on Connie’s blog
