Love shopping at tjmaxx, marshalls and home goods. There are several that are dangerously close to everything. This weeks score was a journal. Cheap thrill. And how about these pins? What? Your first stop at the mall isn't Hot Topic? Usually it's our only destination.
It's time to read up on how to handle the seasonal change with my lovely rose bushes. I'm clueless and need to figure out what I need to do asap. It has brought me such simple pleasure to go visit my roses every day and I want to keep them safe for next year. Any hints?
My cousin Molly sent me this book, 90 minutes in heaven, and suggested I read chapter 2. I admit I have not read the rest of the book. All I needed to hear was Don Piper's account of heaven to give me a rush of peace and comfort. Sure, I trusted that heaven was the kingdom it is promised to be, but his words came at the right time for me. He describes, in simple words, what it was like to enter heaven. My take-away is that there are no words yet invented to express the immense joy ahead of us. My take-away, from this one chapter, was to be thrilled that my sister is there. Thank you Molly, for this precious gift, for this perspective. Another book I have found helpful is Surviving the Death of a Sibling. Grief takes on many faces and it is different for all of us, even within one family. Shannon was a wife, a daughter, a friend - but she was also my sister.
Love my jumbo size Sharpie paint pens. Messing around with them makes me really happy. Love when they smear. The nib on these things are 1/2" wide! Get some!!
And the braces are off! Look at this lovely face. I promised Fallon I wouldn't blog about her new *friend* (Anthony)....I'm not. He may have been edited from the photo, but the blush he provoked is there. Does that still get me in trouble? *wink*
