AThankful Heart, a Must Read and a Giveaway You Won't Want to Miss
While many of you are long past the beautiful colors of fall, we are in the midst of some glorious sights! Nanny, this gingko is for you. ;)
After our brutal summer with a record breaking number of days well over 100 degrees... and a drought that killed so many, many of our trees, then gave fuel for multitudes of fires... the survivors are putting on their best show!! It makes my heart sing songs of deep, deep appreciation... for all things that shine in the face of adversity.
This crepe myrtle provides beauty summer and fall out my wavy kitchen window. There is almost always a little bird show going on in there, too.
I am going to soak up all this beauty my soul can stand... soon it will be gone. I'll be enjoying each moment I am given with a grateful heart.
There are two things I have seen I really, really want to share:
First, a blog post my daughter shared with me:
Lil' Light O' Mine
I say AMEN!! If you have children or grandchildren or are just wanting a great perspective on what this season is all about, take a look!
Second, (I almost hate to share because it will decrease my odds of winning, but...) Tricia at Saving Room for Dessert is having this amazing giveaway of homemade Christmas Goodies!! Oh, my!! Today is the last day to enter... so, you may want to hustle on over.
