Another amazing quote....

If I had a single flower for every time I think about you
I could walk forever in my garden.
~Claudia Ghandi
I found it on Chasity's beautiful blog~

There are days like these......

Where I miss her even more~ Where I wish that I could call her and talk to her and cry to her and have her tell me things will be ok ~ And that the decisions I am faced with in life are the right ones for me even though they can be so very hard....
I want to call her and hear her voice today... and every day. There is simply no good reason that I cannot do that.
I miss her~ I miss her~ I miss her~ I don't face that enough...
I put a smile on my face and get up and go to work and pretend that things are fine, even when they are not ~ because that is the way the world works. Nothing stops for death and sadness or loss of any kind. It just keeps going and we are only given the option to move forward...
I ran across these words in a book the other day and grabbed my journal to write them down because they could not be more true....

4 More days until actual Spring!!

This weekend was beautiful and warm, with sights and sounds of Spring emerging and showing signs of hope.. I tried to take it all in~
Today is raining and it also may snow, but I am trying really hard to think of it as helping to make Spring more beautiful and colorful when it finally arrives....
I cannot wait!
I took these photos a few years ago~ but they are a reminder of what is to come and... Man, am I ready!!!!

100 years....

Yesterday my beautiful grandma turned 100 years old.
This is my dads mother~ Ezna Greene!
She was born on March 5th 1911~ Can you imagine all the changes she has seen in her lifetime...
It amazes me~
She is the sweetest thing~ So smart and witty!
I am so lucky to have her in my life! She is the only grandparent I have ever known~ I love her so much!
Happy Birthday Grandma~

There were so many people there to see her that I had to sneak in and have my cousin take a photo of us! I felt like I was attempting to get my photo taken with a celebrity! :)
She said her secret to living such a long life is just to be happy! Not to worry about things and be happy!

A pitcher for her...

I painted this pitcher for my mom for Mothers Day in 2000, it now sits atop my fridge~
Reminding me that I am her daughter and I do have talent like she did and I need to use it more often.
With all of my heart I wish it still stood in her kitchen for her to enjoy~
But I think she would be happy knowing that I see it everyday, along with all of her beautiful artwork that warms my home and I think of her~ always....
