Reflecting, thinking, and thanking....

Sometimes I get a bit sentimental, and sometimes I over think Life!
I think it is because, I treasure and value  it so very much!
I am very grateful for so very much!


I treasure my "true" and genuine friendships, I have and have had throughout my life.
It is the little things, like a funny little card you get for no reason...


It's the flowers you buy for yourself, just because they make you smile.


The thoughtful things people do for you,  make for you, just because...
they simply want to.


The simple pleasures of a pretty vignette, that you can create, it makes you smile, just because you think it looks pretty and happy!
Again, the simple things.


I cherish my family, my husband, my boys, for loving me, and putting up with me...
I am not always easy!
{hey, but either are they}:)

I cherish my times with my Mom and sissie, and they too for putting up with me throughout the years.


You see, I wasn't the easiest kid by no means...
I would say I was a tad bit of a rebel....you wouldn't think that now would you?
Don't answer that, any of YOU!
Thank goodness I grew up!


And of course, my little lucy girl, who just loves NO matter what!

and of course, YOU!

my many blog friends that I have made.  You come and read my antics, I show you crazy stuff sometimes.. and you stick with me!
 I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
XO

Have a wonderful Saturday!
 I will see you tomorrow night for the newbie party.

Beautiiful picture of you with mom and sister. and of course the family :-) Love Lucy in her sun spot. I like the candles in the glass vase on your kitchen island and where did you get the light above your sink? I bet in the evening it casts such a pretty glow. --Kathy t

This post is so sweet of you, and it really shows your kind and generous heart. You started with that funny card ~ I vote for buck naked but BUTT makes more sense ~ then you started thanking us for being there for you. We all know it's the other way around. You do so much to encourage other bloggers. Every time you've replied to one of my questions, I've been amazed that you took the time to do that. You are the BEST.
