It's good to be alive.

* It was a good weekend. Beautiful weather. Good family time. Extra sleep. WooHoo!

* We have a huge jewelry order going to South Korea, so we spent a lot of the weekend working in the jewelry studio getting that together.
And listening to Christmas music.
And drinking coffee.

* I still feel so terrible for the people on the East Coast.
I want to have them in my home. Give them a blanket. Hug them.
Huddle around the fire pit with them. Give them a mug of hot homemade soup.
Let them experience peace and quiet, rest and comfort, even if it's just for a little bit.
I want them to feel love. True unconditional love.
From a stranger. From God.

* All I can do though, is make things. Donate time and money. And pray.
And we're doing lots of that.

Live like there's no tomorrow. Love like you're on borrowed time.
Don't take a single moment for granted.
It's good to be alive!

Happy Monday to you.

Love that I found more of Jason Gray's song at the bottom! That was the first thing I though of when reading the title of the post in my feed reader!
Great pictures!

Barbara, the green orb things are "hedge apples"... also called Osage apples. (not edible though.)

Love seeing your pics! Fun to see you on Instagram as well. I mentioned/linked you today when I wrote about my love of IG. :-) It's a fun little world.

When I was growing up in Texas, we called those green things horse apples. Does that make any sense? Can horses even eat them?

Ordered my ornament the other day... Can't wait!

Lovely...and that is a good song!

I've had a stressful day taking product photos. They just don't always turn out the way I like them and I get frustrated.

And then I come to read your blog. And, man, thank you for putting things into perspective for me. I have a warm home, with heat and electricity. I don't have the remnants of my life piled up out on the curb because a storm blew through. I have a bed to sleep in tonight. I am blessed, but guilty of taking it for granted.

So thank you for the reminder that I have all that I need, and many people tonight do not.

Just popped back here to see about those green orbs - thanks for the info! They are pretty cool looking.
