...I was sitting at the dining table drinking milk and eating chocolate chews out of the pot with Mama and Martha and we were talking and laughing and critiquing the new curtains. And holding up a tassle. And then talking about serious stuff over pins and fabric scraps. Then laughing some more.

And just being with them has cheered me up so much that it makes me want to dance and laugh and almost cry because I love them so much!!! I was feeling sorta down today, and they've just blessed me so much. How grateful I am to have them in my life, to be with throughout the day. They are such a delight to live with!!!

It is beautiful out today. It smells like spring. I saw the first snow drop blossom by the fence line today!

"Love never fails" is playing. It reminds me of how much our Saviour loves us-so much more then we humans can ever love.
His love is perfect and beautiful, and it is so, so good to be His.Much love to you on this exquisite day!

I love you!

What a blessing it is to have a family that you delight in, but I'm sure your mom would agree that it is an equal joy to have a daughter that holds her family in such high esteem.
Love the last picture with the sweet baby.

Adeline, it's so neat to hear you share your joy over those everyday blessings we all experience. I too many times take them for granted...you're such an encouragement!

Wishing you a great day,
