I love the flourishes that are “all the rage” these days. You can tell I love them…just look up at my banner. Today, Trudee posted the Ways to Use it Challenge for me so that I could spend more time with my mom. I spent the morning there and came home for this afternoon as the babysitter had to leave. Mom no longer knows I’m there and I know it won’t be long until she is free from her disease and will be in Glory. This simple card is inspired by her.

In Mom’s Garden…

I’ve been spending most of my time these past few days at my mom’s to be with her. Her garden is beautiful right now, as always. So peaceful and quiet. So many things to enjoy. Birds, fish, squirrels, frogs…even a family of 6 raccoons that come out in the evening. No the ideal city pet, but they’ve made their home under the deck and we don’t want to wrangle with mama raccoon. Her babies are darling!

I love the sounds of the waterfall and the birds. During the day I often go out for a little fresh air and it is a wonderful place to pray. I can see the love the Great Designer in the care and beauty of his workmanship. I took a few pics the other day and while I’m not the best photographer, I thought I’d share them with you here.


The Waterfall & Pond


There was a darling little frog I was wanting to get a pic of but he must have been off somewhere when I brought my camera. I hope you all have a wonderful day and hope you can find even a few minutes to get out-side, be quiet and enjoy God’s beautiful creations.
