On my birthday, Jud took us all... the kids and Tommy and me to Provino's. A wonderful Italian Restaurant in Snellville.....scrumptious garlic rolls!!
Amy and her family presented me with the brilliant Sunrise Cactus, pictured here. It closes every evening and reopens each morning to greet the opportunities of a new day!
Spring is the season of new beginnings.....I remember that my often Mom said that when coming home from the hospital after I was born the Dogwood, Azaleas, and Wisteria were in full bloom lining the streets and creating a canopy overhead....a beautiful Spring back in 1943! WOW! That was certainly a new beginning for my folks (I was their first child)....as well as for me!
Entering my 70"s promises to be exciting and challenging.
This Spring, 2013, is glorious as well....even though it has been slow coming!
Our traveling days are not over, but we are finally putting down some roots! Yeah!
On March 27, we closed on this home "without wheels"! Located close to family!!
We celebrated the closing by having all the family to "Our House" for an Easter Picnic after church.
"Welcome and come on in!"
We had PLENTY of food....(and counter space! Woo Hoo!!!)
......and since everybody brought their own chair, lots of space to sit down!
Making Easter Eggs and hunting them....was part of the agenda!
Even the adults got involved.
He's a joy and seemed happy to be there! We trust his opinion....no doubt our new home will be fine!
As I mentioned before, our traveling days are not over!!! (We hope!) But the "Dreamcatcher" has a new home too. March 28, (that same week) we had a Pole Barn built on the property in North Carolina.
We were thrilled to find Daffodils we transplanted from our home in Marshallville. They were breaking through the briars and brambles and blooming in greeting!
Joel and Kathryn gave us some Paper Whites at Christmas. Jud planted them close to a wild Dogwood Tree. Sure hope they make it and multiply! It will be interesting to see what all we find next spring.
But the most exciting New Beginning is that Joel and Kathryn have wed!!!! The two of them are beginning their Journey together....and we have another beautiful "Daughter!"
A small exquisite wedding involving the whole family! It was lovely and we are so happy for them!
What a blessing! We thank God for this union. It is a special gift and a wonderful opportunity for new life for them and for us!
May God bless them and their home. May He help them make sweet music together and always savor the "dance."
Thank God we are HERE to enjoy all of this! I pray He makes us worthy.
