{a peek back at Spring to be reminded that...}

There's more to
life than simply
crossing things off our
TO-DO list.
{close your eyes and breathe all the sweetness that life has to offer you today}
this is the day that the Lord has made

Dearest Koralee - so true! And - guess what? i just came into the office, looked for the mail from yesterday - and what was there? Your package!!!!! OMG, i was SO happy to see it! Somehow, it gnawed on me that it should have been lost and you made all the effort in vain - even more so now that i see it. It's not only one magazine, but two, along with your gorgeous card and notebook - thank you so much sweet friend! Can't wait for tonight to look at the mags - and will blog about your gifts soon. Hope you have a delicious sunday and am sending you additional sunlight! xox, M.

Libbie said...

that picture TOTALLY made me smile!!! I just love it!!! Fun to think of spring during fall...I guess I don't really do that! But I am also thinking maybe my problem is that the only thing on my to do list since Rocco started walking is "survive the day with no one going to the hospital." Maybe I should be a little more ambitious! :)

What a beautiful truth to share a lovely photo to go along with it. You always bring a smile to my face.
Blessings,

Hi Koralee!
Oh this was a day the Lord made! I had almost the whole family here for a "Labor Day" celebration. My brother-in-law was "master chef" at the BBQ grill ...
~such a great meal was had by all!

Thank you for the reminder to breathe in all the sweetness of each day... I hate to wish any day away... no matter what lies ahead... all the days in between are counted as gifts.

The photo of your lovely daughter among the lilacs inspired us all to close our eyes and remember that special springtime fragrance.

A Merry Monday to you dear friend ♥
~Maria

Maria said...
