Melancholy Monday.....

"Be cheerful in all you do. Live joyfully, live happily, live enthusiastically, knowing that God does not dwell in gloom and melancholy, but in light & love."  Quote by Ezra Taft Benson. Lettering by Randah Urbina.

Well, Pappy returns to work today.
After having him home since last Wednesday,
and us spending every.single.minute together.....
well, it makes me kinda sad.

I miss him....

We had such an awesome time celebrating my birthday.
I'll try to share later on this week some of our thrifty finds.

But, for today....
it's back to cleaning and laundry and catching up on those things I didn't get done last week.....
because I was having too much fun!!

HOPE everybody has a blessed day!

Breathing in Grace,


  1. One thing about it, while you're doing all that housework you can enjoy all the beautiful memories you made last week! Don't work too hard...((hugs))

  2. Happy Birthday, a bit late. Many blessings for you and yours! Sounds like you had a good week together. I just wanted to say hello. Take care, sweet friend.

  3. Hello, friend. I love the pretty cardinals on your blog header! Happy Birthday- a bit late. It's good to see your friendly blog again. I hope all is well for you and yours.

  4. Hi Deb! I enjoyed that quote and I'm glad you had a great time celebrating your birthday. My birthday is in the spring and I'm already making plans... :)

  5. Hi Deb! I really like your image today. It's the second time I have been reminded to be joyful, cheerful. God must be wanting to tell me something, right?
    Awww, I'm sorry you are missing your buddy today. I bet he misses you too! I think it's wonderful that after many years of marriage, you still can have such a great time together. That's a grace!
    Have a good Monday! Sometimes getting back to normal is it's own blessing too.

  6. Oh my goodness, Deb! I should have read here early this morning for the wonderful reminder you posted at the top of your post today! They are words I definitely needed to hear (see) today. Hugs to you my friend.

  7. Dear Friend, I hope that you had a wonderful and blessed birthday! Hugs and blessings, Cindy
