Sharing A Bit Of Spring Around Here
Well, I see I am going to get this backwards here but it's okay with me. My long neglected backyard is starting to bloom with a little bit of TLC from me. I don't have a manacured garden by any means. Whatever will grow out there in the shade of the huge pine tree is truly a survivor. I let the yard have it's way since it is going to do just that anyway. Isaac was so excited to have his own rainbow visit him in the sprinkler. Of course, he wanted to know how it got there and to be honest, I just told him that God was paying us a visit.:) He just got a huge smile on his face and said "yeah":) I have lots of work to do to get the yard all cleaned up but it feels good to be out there working in the wee hours of the morning when the sun is rising and a chill is in the air. This yard has so many memories of 32 years of living in it. Weddings, rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, family reunions, childhood campouts under the pine tree, my therapy spot when I needed to sit and have a good cry about things I could not change. I talk to God all the time when I am out there working because all of the wonderful memories come flooding in and they are all good, and I am grateful to thank Him for all that life has given us in this house and out in that yard. It is the memories that make this place Home Sweet Home. More pictures to come as I get things cleaned up. Have a great day you guys. I love you.
Love and Hugs, Laurie
