So sweet.

The lilacs in my yard have been blooming.
And the smell is so sweet.
Fresh. Pure. Lovely.


Sometimes my life is so sweet, I feel it in my core.
Right now is that time.
I know life has ups and downs but right now I feel so blessed it brings tears.


I feel overwhelmed by love and sweetness.
Surrounded by people who are way too good to me.
Consumed by a God who shouldn't love me at all, but does unconditionally.


My life is just so sweet.

I pray yours is too.

Me too! I've been feeling the same way. I feel so blessed to have the friends and family that I do. And I'm overwhelmed by their love and generosity.
We have lilacs too but they won't have flowers this year :( they are too young. Maybe I'll go buy a lilac candle and pretend I have flowers

How beautiful! I love lilacs too, and was very sad when I had to leave them at my old house. One day, I will have lilacs again. Lots of them.

Beki, great article about you in the newspaper!! Do you want a copy?

I wanted to plant a big purple lilac bush, but Al didn't like the idea of where I wanted it placed. No other place for it though in our yard. I do have a Miss Kim lilac but it is smaller. Smells good though!

I just read the article about you. You are blessed. (I am wearing my "blessed" necklace right now, by the way!) :)

I LOVE Lilacs! My husband once took our daughter out and got some for me while I was napping. I guess he made sure to tell her they were "mommy's flowers" so now every time she sees them she points them out. so cute!

I could just cry like a baby! My lilac buds were bit hard by Mr. Jack Frost. They always perfume the air of my yard for a couple of weeks...that will not happen this year. {{{SIGH}}}

'Till next year I'll just enjoy yours through your beautiful pictures. Ahhhhhhh!

Have a blessed and beautiful day sweetie! :o)
