Lovin' My Men (and Little Momma)
Life has been running at a frenzied pace around here!! I had worked all weekend scrubbing, sanding, patching and painting on my current remodel project. I came dragging home Sunday night to find a prize from my Little Men.
Now, they (and their Little Momma) sure know how to lift their Noni's spirits when she is dog-tired and frustrated with some projects gone south (not in a good way).
Put a big smile right on my face! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, my Little Men and Little Momma! I love this pumpkin AND its beautiful wrapping!! But, most of all the thoughtfulness that went into every part of it. My heart is full.
Now, I cannot talk sweet about my Little Men without mentioning my Beloved Man. He sent this beautiful bouquet on Saturday. It arrived when I was about to pull my hair out... over situations that had gone arwy (if you have ever started a remodel, you know how this is!).
It kept me going. I'd smile as I would pass it by... heading on to the next step in the process. I have wonderful Men in my life, folks; and, I do adore them! I'm a lucky woman... a blessed woman.
And, I am grateful.
I so wish I had had a tripod.
As I closed the door at the end of my work weekend, the last rays of sunlight glowed off this bouquet. It was amazing. Of course, this is blurred... but, it makes me smile just to remember the glow... and how everything had faded to black... except the beauty. This project will do that, too. Thank You, God... for this blessed reminder. Thank You. Most of all, I am blessed by You.
Now, I'm about to head back to Sherwin-Williams and hit the paint brush again! Been trying to tend to my bookkeeping, tax information (yes, it's that time of year for us AND we are still Examining By Mail from 2008!!!), some Historic Tyler business and the routine stuff... Time to get back to the remodel!
Hope you are all enjoying your week! You are my bright spots during break times! LOL!
