 Weekend Reflections 

If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere
Vincent Van Gogh

Thankful for this day. Thankful that my mom still laughs with me and makes fun of my bangs because she can't stand hair covering my eyes.  Thankful for hospice.  Thankful for my husband who is my rock.  Thankful for my daughter.  Thankful for grandkids who hug with the mightiest hugs, even when they really would prefer to just go on and play. 

The amaryllis are blooming, another sure sign that spring is here.

Wow time flies- seems like just yesterday she was graduating high school.
  Now she is about to graduate college.
My {pretty}  granddaughter.

Moment in Time: Where the Eagles Fly

Moment in Time
3:29 p.m. 

But those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength
They will soar on wings like eagles
Isaiah 40:31

My martins are back and I love to sit out on the porch and listen to them sing- this one looked a bit pouty. 

and a final shot that has absolutely nothing to do with critters, but I 
am so excited that my new camera zoomed in this close to the moon the other night.  Not as happy about it as I am the eagle though...that was my first, and now that we have found him, we'll be going back soon to see him again.

Happy Easter to all my blogging friends! 

Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for storms that go south and north and miss us completely, although I know we have just been lucky so far. I'm praying for the ones who were in the path and were either killed or injured or lost their homes.

 My mom seems to be holding steady and for that I thank God, because this cancer is a {mystery} to me- to be gone but causing so much damage in it's wake.

I tried a new strategy this week and hid Katie's feeder between feedings.  She was sitting in front of it for three and four hours before each feed.  This backfired on me as she ended up yakking up all her food again.  I don't know what to do with her and this strange obsession with staring at her food bowl hours on end.

My daughter had surgery last week, and they removed her gall bladder and checked out some inflamed lymph nodes...fortunately the biopsy they did showed everything was benign, and she is feeling a lot better now.

I hope you are having a wonderful week!  Sending prayers for those who are ill.
