Courage and the Cat

Power words made by those who love us. A cat who sits watchful of the powerful words.A note by someone who has loved me since I was a child, and the most, delicious,.......
...chocolate chip cookies ever. Made the same way for maybe over 40 years. Always perfect, because the imperfect would be secretly eaten, so that all would always be perfect.

A most wonderful gift.
God's grace in every picture. Remembering what is truly important.
A gift of the flowers of life, the flowers in our life. Intense color in friendship and love.
The imperfect edge of a cabinet, over 100 years old......how perfect this imperfection.
Does this need any explanation? Observe the delicious black pads.
A flower by any other name......
an invitation in waiting for a special event.
A new found picture, uncovered by a cousin, tucked away in the years of life, to emerge
on our chair.... now this, dear friends, is priceless.
The courage in living when the hole is so huge. When we get lost in our worlds, it is in the little things in life, in the little details where memories exist and prosper.

Wonderful post Lydia. I hope you and the kids are doing ok. I do imagine that some days are struggles. But I'm glad that you are able to find joy in the little things and moments in life that really are what make up our lives.
HUGS! and happy weekend!

We are hanging tough. I am doing loads of paperwork and job hunting, taxes... Kids are getting ready for school, trying to get back into life.

We definitely have our moments.
