A Challenge for Our Lives, too...

I saw this video on Sandie, The Chatty Crone's blog.  I LOVED it.  Just the best thing I had seen in awhile.  I've asked her if she minded that I would post it, too.  She was most gracious in her response to share.  Thank you, Sandie, for leading me to this. I hope the rest of you enjoy it as much as I did.  It raises some amazing challenges for our own lives.  Enjoy...

Shhhhh... It's a Secret.


Shhhh... Little Man and Noni have been keeping a secret...



After Noni gave Little Man a Bunny for Easter, they whispered among themselves...



That his bunny needed a friend... And, a plan was formed... to make a little girl friend... to go to Little Man's girl friend...


A birdie told me that Ally had arrived safely with lots of love for Miss Lila!  The secret's out!  Have a fun day, girls!!

Overwhelmed


Do your ever feel overwhelmed with blogging?  Does it amaze you that there are so many more people you really care to know what's going on in their lives and how they are than before you blogged?


I confess I'm feeling overwhelmed.



Real life has been hectic with tenant changeovers... plumbers, electricians, painters, and my floor guy... a yard that desperately needs tending, knitting that wants to be done, Historic Tyler projects to be worked on, golf to be played, food to be cooked, laundry to be washed, bills to be paid, bookkeeping to be kept...

I know you all know how it is.  And, then there are blogs to be read... posts to be made... Where does all the time go???  Wishing you all (and myself) a peaceful, productive day!   ;)

BTW, I will find out the name of the roses soon.  And, Earl (yep, that had to be his name.  Thank you for ALL the wonderful name suggestions) has blown this joint and moved on.  I'm sad about that!

Letter to Little Man's Mom








Dear Mommy,

I asked Noni to help me write this letter to you for Mother's Day.  I love you so much.  Your voice is the voice I listen for to know everything is right with the world.  Your smile is the smile that lights my life.  Your touch is the touch that comforts me when I wake in the night... when I don't feel good... when I am tired or hungry or scared. 



Your tireless love gives me everything I need to grow, to thrive, to learn, to love back.  You work so hard for me and I just want you to know I am growing to be a man you will be proud of...  Noni says I will give you back way more than you give... but, that seems like a lot.  Noni says it is true.  She says one day I will understand that.  She says you have given her more than she ever gave to you.


I don't know about that stuff right now.  What I know is that I love you bigger than the sky... to the moon and back.  Noni says she does, too.  Happy Mother's Day, Mom!

Love,

Little Man
PS Noni says she had to borrow these photos from you for today.  She said thank you.

Sandi's Friday Favorite


I'm posting these roses on our fence as a Friday Favorite at Sandi's Whistle Stop Cafe.


They are the most perfect, tiny roses and they bloom most of the summer.  They make me smile.

New Resident at the Bungalow

As is my habit, I went out in the soft early morning light to tend my plants and say my prayers...


Imagine my surprise as I sat on the steps and noticed this little guy.  He is new to the Bungalow.  Just sat there as I watched!  So, I decided, against the odds, to race back in the house and grab my camera.  So glad I did!  Apparently, he was posing for his announcement as a new resident here!  Little Man, Noni has another friend for you to meet.  =)  What do you think his name is?

Day is Done...


It was a longish day...


Had me hunting a niche in our little corner of the world...


A place to hide away and to share some quiet time with the Fish Boys...



Velvet, our little assassin cat...



And, my dear hubby...



Surrounded by beautiful flowers...



Birds singing...



And, a soft breeze blowing...



The sweet scent of jasmine floating from across the fence...



A good way to end the day...
