Spring Time Joy


Hello there! Have you been enjoying Spring time this year? I am so happy that we are finally having some nice weather and haven't had any snow for a few weeks!! Yay!! 

I have had some time spent with some of my favorite people and enjoying a conversational cup of tea. A tea party can be just the thing one needs to stir up some smiles and fun conversation.

We are getting ready for my daughters Graduation Party, so having fun with my mom and sisters deciding what kind of goodies to make. It will be here in two weeks! She already had one Graduation for her Associates Degree from college last week. It was so exciting. Next week, she will have her Graduation from High School. She is Summa Cum Laude. A very amazing feat and all of 17 years old. 


Please pardon me a moment while I brag, because I am a very proud Momma. My whole family are all so proud of her hard work and accomplishments, too. We are just so excited to celebrate her achievements!!


I sure been busy keeping up with all of life's demands. I been working hard to adjust to my dads absence from our daily lives. Trying hard to handle all that life throws my ways. All the while, I stop to notice and be thankful for every blessing. It can be hard to sometimes find that silver lining, but I must insist that we all should try real hard to always look for it.

Grief is a very difficult thing to get through, as many of you surely already know. But we are so blessed and know that Daddy would want us all to be our very best.

Hopefully, I will have more time to blog more often again, really soon. I miss my blogging buddies!

Here is my wish: That you all are happy, healthy and blessed!!

    1. Debby, you are right. My Dad was her biggest fan, and boy was he proud of her. He was even talking about how proud he was of her in his last days to the hospital staff.. oh, Daddy. I sure miss him. Thanks so much.
      By the way, she was part of a very special High School and she is a very bright girl always ahead of the game. She was able to concurrently enroll in College when she had actually finished all her high school requirements by the end of her sophomore year!! She really is a good girl.
