Dear Grandma ~ A Tribute to Mom with Flowers

Hello Dear Readers!

Happy Monday and

Happy Monday Morning Blooms Day!

It’s a  most beautiful Monday, when I and

my wonderful flower loving friends,

Lidy, Mary and Pam,

share our love for flowers,

every 1st and 3rd Monday

of the month, hoping to bring some of

that love to you for inspiration.

Today we pay tribute to Mothers.

joyous and bittersweet as we celebrate

The Hickory Cottage Sunroom Reveal (for now)

Hello Dear Readers!

I have been up to my eyeballs in boxes and

packing paper (still) and trying my best to work

with one room at a time; however, it has

been a bit difficult as there are still

many boxes that need to be unpacked.

I worked on the sunroom.

You could not see the floor as it was truly

covered with furniture, boxes, and orphaned

accessories. However, I got through it!

Reflecting on what is most important in our

lives. . . . Family, faith and friends,

and exhibiting compassion

and acts of kindness to others.

Today, it’s about

Bringing the Beauty of Spring Indoors.

My Life’s New Challenge

Hello Dear Readers,

Sometimes life takes an unexpected turn.

A turn that for me, that I thought I would have never, ever,

faced. Not in a bazillion years.

We all have those bumps in the road.

But for me, it is a “lump” in the road.

My Life’s New Challenge.

But hey!…I love a challenge and this challenge I will win

with the love and support

of family and the overwhelming outpouring of friends,

and my incredible team of doctors and staff.
