  1. Oh I love the little pansies or violets, they are so cheerful and lovely. Your handmade Mother's Day cards are gorgeous! I'm jealous of your talents. Maybe I should try the 10 min. cleaning sessions. I seem to bog myself down with thinking of all that needs to be done and trying to do it all at the SAME time! I've thanked the Lord for washing machines and dryers in my 1,000 list too. They are a God send. I'm sorry to hear of your van and will pray a reasonable replacement comes available. Happy Be-lated Mother's Day! I enjoyed your gifts.

  2. This is my first time visiting your blog. I love the idea of paying attention to God's gifts. It's so easy to get caught up in life and forget how blessed we are ever for the little things. Thanks for the reminder. :)


I would love to reply to your comments, but I can't unless you have an email available in your profile!
