There are those moments when “time” takes on a bit of an odd meaning. I mean, like when I have to attach a number to my recent birthday…….like, well…….such numbers are for people like……well, surely, not me! OK……..are you ready……the number is………67….what? You say you didn’t hear me? I said it’s 67…….You ….you still didn’t? 67!!!!! I canNOT believe it!! Alright, enough already!!! DH and I met #1 son and wife on Wed, the 3rd, for dinner in LaCrosse. Such a good time! They gifted me with 3 bottles of their homemade wine!!! Yum! The next day (April 4th), DH and I went to St. Paul and picked up Mom and headed to lunch in Stillwater, MN, at the historic Lowell Inn. I have been lunching there, at least 1 time a year, for 45+ years!!. So gorgeous and the food is 5 star!!!!This photo is obviously an old one but the building has remained the same all these years!! Friday, the 5th and THE day!, began with this card….. and was spent quilting and with family in the evening for a mini-party. The thoughtful gifts are an ever reminder of what is of true value………….
This beautiful “Faith” plaque (and wonderful “Lily of the Valley” soy candle) is from my granddaughter, hubby and great grand-daughter. Love it!!!! The next gift is from #2 son and wife (who reside just up the driveway from our home)…….
A closer look at those sweet words……….
As Spring is at my doorstep, these words certainly will be in the forefront of my mind as the world around me renews itself in the freshness of new growth and new life……..and is that not what is the heart of the Easter story!?! And so I begin my 67th year of life in this beautiful corner of the world and I say “thank you”, dear Bloggy Friends, for being such an important part of my life. You are truly numbered among the many blessings I have been given! Hugs……….
