Autumn Splendor ... from my front yard

Trees, charming at dawn, greet me
Trees, vibrant at night, rest me
Trees, dancing in the breeze, thrill me
Trees, silent, still and tall, move me.
But only God can make a tree.

Having breakfast with two sweet little girls ...

Morgan and Delaney enjoying breakfast
with some hot-chocolate ~
Delaney and I ~
Delaney was not quite two when I met her.
She is now 12 years old and a little chatter- box!
She makes me laugh :)
Morgan and I ~
I've been nanny to Delaney and Morgan for 10 years now.
Morgan was 6 months old when I met her.
Morgan is now 10 years old.
She has the most tender and kind heart!

Having breakfast with Morgan and Delaney
is a real treat ~
We are usually there for a few hours.

Delaney and Morgan are beautiful and loving girls ~
And I love them ~

Little girls bring such delight
with hearts so warm and smiles so bright.

My family ... when we were kids ...

Brothers and sisters, I'm 2nd from the right, the little tow-head
My little brothers ... love this picture!
You don't choose your family.
They are God's gift to you
as you are to them.

Happy Birthday to my wonderful son ...

David will be 23 years old on Nov. 26th.

Nothing can be compared to the
feeling of pride you get when
you see your little son grow up so wonderfully
into such a gentle young man ...
Thank you, dearest son
we can call ourselves very proud parents ...
Happy Birthday ...
Love always ... mom and dad
We find delight in the beauty and happiness
of children that makes the heart too big for the body.

Content and at peace with nature ...

This picture was taken on a recent trip to Palm Springs, CA.
My husband and I had a wonderful time there in spite of the 100 degree temps! (I'm not a fan of such heat and was happy to have a beautiful swimming pool at the place we stayed at) I Loved Palm Springs, the people there were so friendly and the scenery was amazing!

In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.
