This of course, is the back of the detergent bottle apron, I should have posted this picture second instead of first, oh well....We are finally getting rain today and I should be cleaning like a crazy woman and here I sit tranquilly typing away....updating my blog. My daughter and grandson and son-in-law's sister are coming on Thursday evening and staying till Sunday so you know what that means. Extra dusting and polishing etc. I'll love to see them. Its been a difficult adjustment over the years letting go...when I've poured my life into them, but its finally happened, mostly I'm fine with it but now and again a pain stabs my heart. But, hey, would I want to live with my Mother forever??? No way. I love her deeply but..... How in the world did I get thinking in that direction? New subject now...I immensely enjoyed the Anne of Green Gable sites last night. My son came home and showed me how to increase the size of the slide show picture and wow is all I have to say. The views of P.E.I. were breathtaking. So many things make me think of God our creator. He deserves our love and adoration. In my Bible reading, this a.m. the narration is about Naaman the captain of the host of Syria who got leprosy and the little captive slave girl said for him to go to the man of God..Elisha. I could really identify with the way he figured out just the way Elisha would come out and meet him and then heal him immediately, but no, Elisha sent a messenger saying, go wash in the muddy river 7 times. How Naaman felt insulted, after all he was somebody important....and wasn't going to obey when a servant said, basically, what have you got to lose? I guess you know how this turned out...its in 11 Kings chapter 5. But thats a good picture of me....always thinking I know best ....thinking....thinking.....when I need to 'let go and let God'. Hope you are having a good day and getting some of this rain too. I told my husband last night, we might as well go out and bury our garden. Get it out of sight, it looks so patheticly .....gulp.....dead. Only a few tomato plants are thriving in this dry heat. On a last note, we had a marvelous supper. Eggplant Parmigiana (I took a wild guess at that spelling) and corn on the cob that was out of this world good. (and I'm not a big corn on the cob fan) (well, untill now. Hubby is trying to bring home more of the same for tonight). Off I go now, I think I'll give a report on my blog tomorrow just what I got accomplished around the house today. Now that ought to spur me on! The verse on my Mary Englebreit desk calander says this....'Success consists of getting up once oftener than you fall down." The picture above that shows a little girl smiling as she roller skates along, one leg flung out in abandon and her skates key twirling about on a ribbon around her neck. A happy attitude, I'm think I'm catching her spirit = ). Now, if by some chance you're still with me, do leave a comment, I'd like that !
