Note to Self

Dear Precious Daughter,

You are more than what you do. You are valuable even when your hair is a wreck, your bathroom filthy, your legs unshaved, and your car a landfill. You are more than an A on the last paper, test, presentation. A's do not define a person. What about the P's? Positively present! It is better to be present with the ones we love than doing mindless dribble we will not remember in a year. What is most immediate is not always most important. Some things can slide.

You are lovely, and beautiful and precious. No need to worry. No need to fret. Give away your worries, cast aside your doubts and fears. Release them in pray and meditation. Give them to the Source for He is more than able.

I love you,

Spring Salutations!

Here is some of the Spring/Easter decorating we've been doing around here. We enjoyed several really warm days and now they are calling for snow again! Not to worry, if the ten day forecast is to be believed, the temperature will be back in the 60's by Sunday!

Chicks and bunnies from here.

I love these little bird nests. They are actually napkin rings. I got them last year at my moms shop in Jonesborough, TN.

This was my great grandmother's view master. This card with the little girl in her bonnet just makes me smile:)

And on those pretty days... my little gardeners have been busy. They were all excited about a garden inspired "prop box" I had put together for one of my classes. When I was done with the project they got to play in the box. Thus the hats, gloves, etc:)
