LATELY

I have been thankful for..."befores"...


and "afters"...

for Summer lawn-chairs still being put to good use in the temperate Autumn we have been gifted with this year...

for football-playing cousins...

and dreamy three-year-olds...


for gifts that sometimes arrive through loss...

and for silent moments to reflect on my life...

It's nice when the simpliest things remind us of what we have instead of what we lack.

Great pics and post.

Awww...great pictures! I especially love the one of the dreamy little girl - it's neat to remember back to when the world seemed so big.

remembering....once they get big, and move out and fly on their own...you rely more on that memory than you realize. :( :)

Little one's eyes are so gorgeous! Like pools you want to jump into! Thanks for sharing the pictures, the reflections and the gratitude. Such a good thing . . .

(Hope that your are feeling a bit better. Been thinking of you and other bloggie friends who are struggling with some ongoing health issues. Lifting prayers for comfort and peace . . .)
