A Special Day

  One year ago today our daughter in-law presented us with a very special gift.

    That beautiful yellow daffodil burst open and presented us with a sweet blossom!

    Adorable baby Reece. This little fellow looks just like my son did when he was little! Tomorrow
    we are off to Traverse City for his first birthday party, so there will be up-dated pictures to share 
    very soon.

    Anyone remember this cute shopping bag?  I love the images on it of Canada that it depicts so well. Little did I realize what a treasured item this would become. I  bought five just on a whim and decided maybe I should get a few more next trip in to town.  But there are none to be had anymore.
I wish I could send one to each of my new found friends out there in blog land. But since I can't I will mail one to each of the first three readers who leave a comment today. Please be sure that you can receive a reply, so I can get your address for shipping.

     For now I leave you with last nights sunset. I don't know what it is about watching the sunset that leaves me with such a feeling of calm. It's like all the cares and the stresses of that day are sinking right along with that sun. I feel that God awaits for me to enter into his rest and allow him to recharge my spirit to face what's ahead for  me in the new day.
It could mean something entirely different to you, but there's no denying it's wonderful!
