{ Thoughtful Tuesday }

Just curious.....

Is your focus on the trees.....
  light breaking through.....
  clouds/darkness in the sky.....
the glimpses of blue?

I first noticed the blue when I took the foto.....
I told a friend that it gives me HOPE!

{ SONday Morning Song - O God Forgive Us }

This is the song I had planned to share today after hearing it for the first time last Friday.  Oh, how appropriate it is in light of what happened yesterday in Charlottesville, VA.  Jess and I were having lunch and the TV in the dining area was on a popular news network displaying the violence that was sparked all because of the hatred one race has for another.  This is something our own family has experienced because of where our granddaughter was born. My heart breaks for her and her parents and all those across the world who are mistreated just because of the color of their skin, or anything else that someone in their prejudiced mind deems as "different".

{ Friday Foto Friends #91 }

If you feed them, they will come! Okay, I know that's actually supposed to be "if you build it, they will come" but look at what showed up at the feeders. These sweet little creatures make my heart so happy.....
something I think both my brother and I inherited from our precious Daddy!

A shift in focus.
That sounds like a good topic for a future post!

Taking a breather.....

This one right here thinks he rules the roost.  
He must have found the feeders first and he fights off the others.
Little meanie, he is!

  That's it!
It's all about the hummers today and I can't promise there won't be more because they just fascinate me.

Thanks to everybody who is so faithful to link up each week. I'm sorry that I've been so slack in visiting. Time just  gets away from me these days.

HOPE your Friday is fantastic and you have a wonderful weekend!

{ THANK-full Thursday }

Running really late, but here's my THANK-full post for today.....

Image result for thank full

*went into Big Lots looking for just the right hummingbird feeder and walked out with just the right hummingbird feeder.....
and, it was marked down!

*so grateful our sweet girl still wants to hang out with her old Mom.  She called this afternoon to ask if I'd like to go somewhere with her Saturday morning.  

*thankful that the little birdies are still building nests around our house.....
except this time it's in my hanging fern. Breathe a little prayer that I don't drown the babies when watering!

*so happy to find some thrift store goodies this week - a couple of "new to me" tops, a skirt and a little mirror.

*I'm so happy that I got both the front and back doors painted this week, something that's been on my "to do" list for quite some time.  Now to get the storm doors spray painted!

*driving through Rocky Valley early this morning.  If you've followed me here very long, you know that's one of my favorite drives!

since I don't sleep all....I was so thankful to get to take an over 2 hour nap this afternoon.
