"The true way to live is to enjoy every moment as it passes,
and surely it is in the everyday things around us
that the true life lies."
--Laura Ingalls Wilder
A joy-filled heart, a thankful heart, another week for counting...
0565the last of the peonies
a wrist full of silly bands... his favorite new collection
chai tea with friends and laughter around the table
our neighbors' strawberry patch... and their wonderfully generous offer to share
the way she says "berries"... they're her "boo-eys"
plans for next year... finally coming together
and shopping for school books-- DONE!
convention companions, shared meals, and homeschool planners
my very best friend-- and an all-be-it brief time together
my mama's generosity and her help with the littles
dinner with classmates-- their kindness, their hospitality, their friendship for more than 15 years
basketball hoops and scooters, popsicles and cupcakes
and plans to get together again-- very, very soon!
"Now, our God, we give you thanks,
and praise your glorious name."
1 Chronicles 29:13
