The Unexpected Change In My Day

Yesterday was a beautiful day,

despite the tragedy around us.

I worked all day on various projects

keeping my mind and body occupied.

{will show you a new fun project once it is finished}

It took me forever to get the laundry done.

I missed Libby Pug Dog a lot.

Maybe, I was just in a grumpy mood?

Then while I was folding laundry….the doorbell rang.

DARN IT. Interruption!

But it was something good.


Oh My Gosh!

A huge,beautiful arrangement from Karen & John.

{we had dinner with Karen and John on Saturday. They were visiting from Atlanta}

The arrangement made my day.

This thoughtful gift changed my attitude immediately.

I have texted Karen and told her that,

but sometimes, people just say that.


someone did something kind and it

changed my day.

Dear Karen & John.

Your friendship means so much to us


One day I hope to be as kind and thoughtful as you both are.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Love you.


PS: Last night, I took the flowers back to the bedroom with me.

They look beautiful on the table next to the big bed.

Larry laughed at me.






Perhaps I Can

It was a lovely weekend.

We worked around the house,

met  friends, Karen & John for dinner on Saturday


went to the country for dinner last night.

There was a 6 year old, a 4 year old and a 2 month old

{the 4 year old and the 2 month old are the

children of Lauren and Josh’s best friends}

at dinner.

I loved it.

I sat on the patio for hours,

enjoying the air,

the sounds of children,

delicious food


watching my family in the early autumn night.

I was very thankful.

Matilda held baby Salma.


This morning I hold Las Vegas in my heart and prayers.

After my wonderful  evening, last night,

I find it difficult to imagine such hate.

Where does a hard heart come from?

Today, perhaps I can do one kind thing

for someone who is angry or down or just needs a smile,

Love you beyond the moon.
