Oh, Hello There

Good Morning, Dear Friends.

I apologize for having gone MIA this last week. It became quite clear to me that not having the weekend to get my life together means the week to follow…well…let’s just say life = not together.

Scrambling to throw meals together on the fly, trying to catch up on chores that went undone over the weekend, looking at the lawn that was 2 weeks past needing mowed, all the while working my regular job that verges on insanity…you get the picture. How my obsessive, compulsive personality survived is still a mystery!

Time spent in Nebraska made the life = not together scenario well worth it as I shared time with my family. Check out this picture I snapped of this gorgeous flowering bush at my grandmother’s house!! It was so full of blooms that the branches drooped under the weight. Simply stunning!

I hope you enjoyed Mother’s Day, in whatever capacity you celebrated and that this past weekend left you rejuvenated and ready to tackle this week.

I’ll be back later with some fun blog posts, but wanted to drop in this morning to say hello and offer some encouragement that no matter what is on your plate this week: You Got This!!

Fresh Start

It’s the songs of birds in the large tree outside that stir me awake in this early hour and beckon me out of bed. The sun just beginning its ascent brings promise of a fresh start; a chance to begin again. It will later direct our paths as it gives light to the darkness and will thaw the thin layer of frost blanketing the earth.

As the coffee begins to brew, I peer through the kitchen widow. The greenhouse sparkles with a million crystals of ice shimmering in the slowly rising sun. Tucked inside all my delicate plants are happy and content; saved from the damaging frost by the shelter literally built by love.

It is the beginning of a new day.

Seize the opportunity to drink in all that is wonderful and good, and against all that may stand in your way, make this an incredible week.
