Grateful For Quiet Weeks . . .

"I want to thank You, Lord, 
for life and all that's in it. 
Thank You for the day and 
for the hour and the minute."
-Maya Angelou

Tree is up...

with collected memories...

The PaperWhites are growing… and about to bloom.

Sherwin finished his puzzle… thank you, Sheila May.

House under construction across the street… notice the name on the lumber… 
thank you Sheila May.

For those who have heard of the missing black stone heart… lost is found.

And especially grateful for 3 beautiful grandchildren… 
if you look closely you will see Grandma hovering over them in a 'selfie'. 

You can see I have much to be thankful for in my quiet week.

"Reflect on your present blessings, 
of which every man has many, 
not on your past misfortunes, 
of which all men have some."
- Charles Dickens

Have a lovely new week as you prepare your hearts and homes for Christmas.
Be well and stay in touch.


  1. Shirley--I love paper whites! Maybe I'll have to come visit when they bloom!

  2. Yes, come on down… any time. Hope the rodeo was great and you were able to stay warm!

  3. Nice grandchildren shot -- sweet! What a handsome crew .

    1. They are so beautiful to me… Shelby, we have so , so much to be thankful for. The lovely thing is each of these children are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the out!
