I saw this on a blog this morning,  so true!  I want to give ;more of myself today,  laugh more,  be in the moment,  love deeper,  encourage someone,  invest in others!!  I am so very grateful for a husband that lives this every day,  he is the wind beneath my wings.
Something that I have always wanted is a pretty smile,  straight teeth!  I know this is not a deep spiritual desire,  sorry,  but it is real.   Today I have my first appointment toward having this.  Braces at my age!!!!!!!  Crazy?  I am READY!!

Trying to be Suzy Homemaker

I have been doing something unusual the last couple of days,  ironing!  I have not ironed in a month of Sundays but I am now and enjoying it too:0!  Who knew?  Hubby has been wearing these all our married life up until 8 months ago when he decided to retire.

  Now he has moved into these,
  I could take all of his shirts and slacks to the cleaners but I am just too frugal for that, besides, a girl gets a good feeling knowing she is taking care of her man:).  When I was just a little girl my greatest desire was to get married one day, have children and be the best mommy and wife I could be.  My desire is still the same,  I have failed miserably many times but hey I get right back up and try again.  My idea of home making may differ from others depending on how old you are,  I was born in the early 60"s (yikes that makes me vintage!!) so I think of clothes dancing on the clothes line smelling like sunshine and fresh wind,  home made yeast bread baking, chocolate cakes and cream pies all made from scratch, hydrangeas and lantana and roses along the yard,  huge oak trees to climb, barns to ramble through,  chickens laying eggs, kittens always to name,  good old dogs, Popsicles, bare feet on the cool grass, bare feet on the hot sand*ouch!, Big Red, RC, Dr Pepper with peanuts poured into the bottle, Coca Cola for 10cents, getting a deposit back on your soda bottle, tomato fights in the garden,  jumping into a cold lake with cousins and siblings, picnics, cats riding in the basket on my bike, dressing cats up in baby clothes and trying to teach them to drink from a baby bottle, barbie dolls down the entire hall, Hostess Cupcakes.....
  What are your memories?

             "Women willing to share some of their best junking finds"\
We had a fantastic Garage Sale this weekend at my daughters!
Mucho Stuff, Mucho People and Mucho Money,  Woo Hoo!!!
I tried to post about the upcoming sale but "blogger" was not letting any post go through.  I did see a few of Mavis & Harriet customers though:).
   I grabbed these things from daughter's stash. I love any white ironstone so this was for sure coming home with me.

I have to say,  it feels so good to let so much go!

Just As I Am...

A new blog to follow,  love the post "Just As I Am"!!!
Tis so true how Jesus sometimes has to strip us down for us to see how much He loves us!  To give us that abundant life that comes from knowing Him.  You never realize Jesus is all you need until Jesus is all you have:).  I learned this when Henry was diagnosed with severe compression on his brainstem at age 4.  The doctors told us that they had never seen this before so severe,  they did not try and sugar coat his diagnosis,  one said,  "there are some things worse than death."  I would love to share how God brought us through the fire in a later post,  but for now,  allow yourself a little time to read her story and be reminded of God's faithfulness, mercy and grace!
