Such Amazing Blessings!



This Mother's Day I want to take time to share with you just a few of the many blessings in my life. I was born and raised in the city and lived there until just about 7 years ago. I am so grateful for the wonderful homes that we had there, both growing up and then later when my husband and I married. Now that I live in the country, I enjoy lots of greenery. This is a little picture I took from my deck, looking out at a portion of my backyard.


These are the seedlings we have started for the veggie garden we will have this summer. I hope it produces a great harvest. Need to get them in THIS WEEK as the rainy weather has delayed me far too long from planting. Those are tomatoes on the left, then peppers, then zucchini, and on the far right are spaghetti squash!




Below is a picture of our wonderful home. I am so grateful that my dear, sweet husband works so hard to give us such a beautiful life.




This is Bambi. She is one of our four dogs. She is 14 years old and still going strong, despite a heart condition and hearing impairment. I am so thankful for all of God's creatures. He has blessed us abundantly, hasn't He?


This last picture is of my garden in the front of my home. I am so thankful for the beautiful blooms on my irises. I am also enjoying the creativity the Lord has given me. My placement of the chair there is new and I just love how it looks.
Enjoy your creativity today and be blessed!

Your gardens are looking gorgeous and the veggie patch will be wonderful. I love spagetti squash, it's a fun vegetable (or as fun as a veggie can get). Hope your Mother's Day was wonderful and peaceful.

Your home is beautiful and Bambi so sweet. It is good just to sit and appreciate what we have instead of rushing round always wanting more and as you have done giving thanks for what we have.

I want to try for a veggie garden next year. I love the view from your deck and your home is absolutely beautiful.
