Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

She was fascinated by her reflection in the window. It followed her everywhere she went!

Every bob of her head, every smile, every wiggle!

Just like a mirror – it reflected every move, and she loved watching that little girl in the background dance!


Weekly photo challenge: Thankful

I am so thankful for these very special people that fill up my life.

They bring joy to my heart and make me smile!

My son, my daughter, my in-law kids, and my grandchildren.

God has blessed my life….abundantly!

What I gave today


I gave the gift of time. and according to her, I included patience and love with it! (A bonus that I wasn’t aware of at the moment, she told me later) I took my mom to the Dr, a trip she has been dreading but the news was good. She asked if I could take her to get her hair cut after the dr. appointment – I thought it wasn’t going to work, the timing was off, but in the end, it was perfect! And she feels better with her new hair cut, and so do I.

While i had limited time budget for her due to scheduling issues, on the other side of that visit, I had extra time. Time I found to treat myself to a pedicure, and I was able to give a tip to the lady who was so patient with me while I was trying to decide what color I wanted! So many choices…not enough toes!

And one of my favorite things as a grandma, to buy clothes for my grandkids. They are so much easier to shop for than myself! So, I got Rick a few really cute clothes! Can’t wait to see that little guy again!
