Wordless Wednesday: Green goodness from my little Garden

Thankful Thursday: 3 Gifts Unexpected

3 Gifts Unexpected

1. I received this “unexpected gift” for  Mother’s Day, it’s a  San Diego Padres flag, and I love it!  I’m so thankful for my daughter and her thoughtfulness when it comes to gift giving. It fits perfectly in my garden, and she knew that it would!

2. My one and only granddaughter…her birthday was not unexpected, nor was it a surprise, but being invited to celebrate her special day with her was very unexpected, and for this, I am so very thankful.

3. What makes a game winning baseball game even better? The gift of an unexpected fireworks show after the win! It was spectacular, and fun, and yes, even something as silly as fireworks can be something to be thankful for!

That’s it for this Thankful Thursday!

I hope that you will take a moment to contemplate all the “unexpected gifts” that are out there for you to be thankful for, and maybe even write down two or three of them!

When it comes to life the critical thing is whether you take things for granted or take them with gratitude.”  ~ G.K. Chesterton

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Early Bird

I’m not really much of an “early bird” when it comes to getting up in the morning.  I’ve left those days behind…but apparently the critter that came to visit my yard is quite the “early bird“, and it looks like they might have gotten a few worms for breakfast too! 😦

Hopefully, you have better things than a torn up lawn to greet you in your early morning hours of the day.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Orange

Orange…is not a color I am typically drawn to.

However, it is beautiful, and bright and the world would be quite boring without it!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reward

There is always a risk to planting a garden….but when there is success, the reward can be pretty sweet!

A few tomatoes, and romaine lettuce, fresh from my garden.

So tell me…what does reward mean to you?

Have a great week! 🙂
