Quiet Reflection Sunday

This morning, as I was searching for a quote powerful enough
to express my gratitude to all the men and women who have served, and the families who stayed behind, I couldn't find one that did not fall short. How does one thank a veteran and their family?
The only way I can think of is to not forget.

Quiet Reflection Sunday

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth
find reserves of strength that will endure as long
as life lasts.

Rachel Carson

Good morning everyone. Hope you are  having a wonderful Sunday.
We are finally going to have a sunny day in Ohio. 
I took the photo's above on a recent trip to visit my son in Dallas.
I was amazed at how large Dallas is, yet there is this oasis not to far from where my son lives. Such peace among the chaos.
For me, nature is where I am closest to God, where I feel alive and refreshed. Would you agree? Where do you go to refresh?
I can hardly wait to work in my garden today. My garden is ten years old and it's time to move things around. Plants have out grown their current spaces. So as I will be covering myself in soil, I hope you have fun too.

Quiet Reflection Sunday

Happy Mothers Day!

As we express our gratitude. we must never forget
that the highest appreciation is not to utter words,
but to live by them.

John F Kennedy

Good morning and happy Sunday everyone. I went out early this 
morning, when the sun was rising to take pictures and enjoy
the sights, sounds and smells of nature. Quite a gift this Mothers
Day. Kennedy's quote was not written in reference to Mothers Day, but how appropriate for the today. I miss my mother so much and would give anything to be able to give her a hug this morning.

I did not always agree with my mother, but she was human after all. Sometimes it's best to just remember the good. She did the best she could and as a mother myself I can appreciate how difficult it is to be a parent. So for today I choose to remember her smiles, her hugs
and the best memories. Love you Mom!!

Do you have a favorite memory of your mother?
