God has blessed me with three amazing kids (mostly adults now), and their friends and loved ones. I have been thinking lots today about how blessed I am and how fast everything goes-everyone grows.
I know that I have made many mistakes ~ and I wish there was away I could turn back time and change certain things, but I know I cannot. But, they have grown and blossomed into beautiful people and it makes me so proud.

I HOPE MOST OF YOU READING THIS HAVE FELT A BLESSING BY YOUR CHILDREN IN YOUR LIVES. THE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE YOU GIVE IS PRICELESS.
For the last decade my mother and I rented a garden plot down by the river and planted vegetables.
This year for many reasons I thought it maybe easier for her and I to have the garden close and raised up a bit.
So here is my first backyard garden…can taste the fresh tomatoes now -mmmmmm
Before he went home yesterday he got hold of my fly tying glasses. Such a goofy guy he was so proud walking around in them. He did keep walking towards me while I attempted to take a picture of him so they turned out a bit blurry. But still cute!!
