A single peach bloom with morning dew
from our front yard…
Buckle Up – I am heavy on the 
Randoms this week….

Pedicures make me feel pampered and pretty!
How about you?

I can’t keep a secret when it is this good!

Here is a little thank you set I am giving to my daughter’s bus driver and monitor,
I am putting them in a pretty gift bag & enclosing a card with a handwritten
 thank you for providing safe travel and care for my daughter
all school year. I was trying to be frugal, resourceful and creative.
May is so crazy
Can you believe it’s June?
But there is always time for a little kindness, yes?
Here are some quotes for your week! 

If we should deal out justice only, in this world, who would escape?  No, it is better to be generous, and in the end more profitable, for it gains gratitude for us, and love.  ~Mark Twain

I always prefer to believe the best of everybody, it saves so much trouble.  ~Rudyard Kipling
Even when you do not feel big hearted, 
you can give yourself permission to act that way.  ~Lama Willa Miller
You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know 
how soon it will be too late.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

184. a generous, unexpected tip 185. God’s provision 186. a client who is a pleasure to work with 
187. homemaking day victory- hooray! 188. only one room that looks “sploded”! 189. full, white round moon reminder of the fullness of His love – washed the world in white late last night- beautiful. 190. blessed assurance 191. realizing my faith is stronger than my fear – finally. 192. He is greater than all my fears, yes! BUT to know that I know and believe it to my toes. YES! 193. Lovely wedding shower weekend with peonies, pink and candy treats…surrounded by love and loveliness-sweet!
Sorry so late…
I had to take time to smell the roses…

It's all a part of counting our everyday blessings and being thankful for everything we have! 🙂 And by the way; a perfect and heartfelt gift for your daughter's bus driver…..Blessings and hugs for a lovely week,Denise


  2. What a perfect rose! I love how God does that, don't you? I mean, He shows us the beauty of His creation in simple things right before our eyes, if we will only take the time to notice! Thank you for helping me to see.
