Happy Birthday No. 1 Niece

I think the giraffe is one of the most beautiful and graceful creature that God made. It walks tall, graceful, making no excuses for its height
So when I call you giraffe, it is not just because of your height. Keep your head held high and walk proud - you are one in a million. I thank God for you.

Happy Birthday and God bless you.

Take time ....

Depending on my family's point of view, I have either an annoying, scary or endearing habit of stopping to admire people’s gardens. Even worse, if the owners are friendly, I will talk to them. The other day I stopped and complimented a lady sitting outside her front garden. In my opinion, she has the best spot for morning sunshine. Even now when I shut my eyes, I can see myself sitting in a similar spot of an early morning, sipping my early morning coffee and watching the world go by, serenaded by the morning birds.

I hope with all the busyness and summer fun that every one of my blog friends will take the time to smell the roses and give thanks to God for the beauty that surrounds us and the hearts and eyes to appreciate it. Winter will soon be upon us.
