I went outside yesterday, to chop weeds.
For once, I remembered to take my camera.
I found this plum tree starting to bloom. I keep
telling them not to do it, don't be lulled into thinking
it is spring. They just won't listen.
Then I have this gorgeous sunflower growing
in my strawberry bed. You can see the cold has
been hard on it, but it doesn't matter, it is still
doing it best to find the sun. It outer leaves are
a little bit bedraggled, but it makes me so happy.
This is the Acacia tree behind my fence. I tried
to get pictures of the bees working in the blossoms
but they were shy. They kept flying away from me
into higher blossoms I couldn't stand tall enough to
I woke up during the night, and as I was counting
my blessings and thinking over all that I have been
blessed with, I am very content.
What I am thankful for today is that I can chop weeds
every day and still have the strength to do all of my work.
I am thankful that I have the gift of staying at home.
I am thankful that my husband still likes to hang out
with me after almost 30 years. I am thankful that
that my kids still like me. Even the
teenagers. :) My grandchildren even miss me and
want to go to gama's. Yes today, when I count my blessings
one by one, I have been given a Wonderful Life, and really,
dreams do come true.
