Welcome

I welcome this new week with eyes wide open.
Hands folded in prayer.
Splashes of unexpected color.





I welcome the challenges.
The laughter.
The coffee.
The vintage finds.
The sunshine.
The family time.
The homework.
The meetings.
The surprise flowers that pop up in late summer.

I'm ready for this week.
Are you?

Yes! My baby brother started high school this week, accckkkkk! He got off to a great start this morning... me and my mom not so much, crying like babies. But I know this is the start of a new jouney for him and he is really excited and is already talking about what college he wants to go to... thats 4 years away! I told him I would be his roommate, hahaha. Hope you have a great day friend!!!

I think I am ready... with God I know I will be.

I have to ask you Beki, I have those same lily's. What are they? They were growing at this house when we bought it and they come up so funny without any leaves. Do you know their name?

I wish I knew what those flowers are! I have no idea. I was hoping one of you could tell me.

They popped up out of nowhere and were full grown in about 3 days.

Love the Decor! said...
