Birthday girl...

A couple of days ago our precious little angel celebrated her very first birthday.
There was balloons, and cake, and treats, and bubbles, and...of course... a ton of presents.
Our grandbaby's birthday was a very special day for us! A year ago she was a very sick little girl. She was hooked up to tubes, and we were scared too death that she wasn't going to make it. I would never want to experience fear like that, ever again.
But look at her now - a year later! She's a healthy, happy, VERY active, beautiful, little girl. She screams when she shouldn't, sleeps when she wants to, laughs at absolutely everything, and keeps us running all day long.
But truth be told, as busy as she keeps us, we wouldn't trade a moment. We are truly blessed to have her in our lives.

My new hobby...

What do you think?

Special Surprise..

My beautiful friend Jeanna sent me a care package.

It contained lots of amazing surprises. Soaps, and jellies, and recipes, and stationary, and crafts, and a beautiful hand knit scarf.

She even sent some special treats for Taliyah.

And as you can see Taliyah has taken a liking to one friend in particular, Ms Mousey. Ms Mousey gets lots and lots of Taliyah kisses.

Thanks Jeanna...luv ya! xxx

Appreciate the day...

Normal day... let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart.
Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so.
One day I shall dig my nails into the earth,
or bury my face in the pillow,
or stretch myself taut,
or raise my hands to the sky and want,
more than all the world,
your return.

~Mary Jean Iron~

I love this quote!

Sometimes I am so guilty of looking backward, and dreaming forward, that I forget to seize the beautiful moments right in front of me.

That kind of week...

Life has been a little crazy lately and unfortunately I haven't had the time to blog (or comment on all the lovely other blogs) as I would like to, but I'll catch up soon.

It's funny, isn't it, the times in life when you have so much going on, so much to write about, are the times when you just don't have the time. Ah well, things will settle down again soon!

Happy weekend everyone! xx

It's the "storm" that never ends.. cuz it goes on and on my friends!!

During all thirteen of the years I have lived in Saskatchewan I have never seen such a disappointing summer! The storms and the rain just won't quit!
Have a peek at the hail on my neighbour's roof top this afternoon..

and the hail pebbles in my driveway..

Seriously, I think Mother Nature and I need to have a chat!!!
