Don't let the grass grow...


This past week was filled with joy, tears, uncertainty
A little sunshine... a lot more rain...
Violent storms have torn through many American lives.
We're praying for you!
We're praying for miracles!


A bright, talented and kind young man perished in a
house fire... he was 16... we heard the news Easter morning.
Almost 18 and Adorable 15 were numb...
Hubby and I have listened, talked, hugged, cried...
We are all blessed to have known him~
He lived each day!
He didn't let grass grow under his feet...


He was the early bird that got the worm...


We attended a memorial service to celebrate
the life of my husbands grandmother.
She loved to travel... the Red Hats... playing cards...
Family and friends... Forget-me-nots...
Oh! the full-life she lived~
Dearest Evy did not let grass grow under her feet!


I have fallen behind on a few very special orders...
Exciting collections are waiting for finishing touches...
My schedule is written in ink...
There have not been enough hours.
One day at a time~


I haven't been letting the grass grow under my feet...
They simply don't have time to touch the ground!

 There was a very special celebration early Friday morn.
With a stretch and a yawn I cut a piece of
left-over birthday cake... sat with a hot cup of tea~
Shared with the world... A Royal Wedding!
Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!

I hope your week is filled with joy and love~

Simply adorable as always! Lots has been happening in your busy life. Such sorrow for your young man who passed, followed by a celebration of life for Grandma Evy. I know both of them are celebrating spring in a better place. Hope your mom is doing better. Blessings to her, you, and the rest of your family.

Smiles!
Deb :o)

PS Had to get up super early here on the west coast to watch the royal wedding . . . well worth it!

Hi Michelle,
Doing what you love and enjoy is very important!
I found a frame for the nest that I won from you...I'm still looking for a frame for the little bird! Thank you so much!
Warmly,

There should be no letting grass grow under our feet. Time is short. We never know. What do we want to do? Go do it.
Love your inks!

Such a touching post ~ such a sad day when someone so young is taken away. God must of had great plans for him.
