It has been another busy day here at my home. Shawn's first day off from school was today and it was great having him home. Cameron enjoyed having him around and so did I. I took advantage of him being home so I could fill some orders. So, if you placed an order from my Londonberry Primitives site then just know that everything is done and complete and I am currently waiting for items to dry. Hopefully I will ship them out tomorrow! Speaking of tomorrow...... I am due to meet Cindy @ Cynthia Lee Designs tomorrow morning at 10:00 am. We are going to go out and hit all of the thrift stores around town. Now seriously, can you imagine the two of us fighting over the same thing?!? It should be quite interesting, but I am sure you will know who wins by the persons pictures on their blog (lol). I have been joking around with Cindy and telling her that I had my knee pads, elbow pads and mouth guard all set aside for shopping. I mean serious business when it comes to finding that perfect thrift store goodie : ) I promise to be on my best behavior!! I wouldn't want her spreading nasty rumors about my behavior - would I? Hahaha, seriously I am joking. That is one thing that alot of people might not know about me. I get my sense of humor from my Mom, my personality from my Mom and well I guess you could say that I am an awful lot like my Mom. Life is too short to be serious - right? I mean we know when to be serious, but we also enjoy having a good time and laughing! That is just our nature and to be honest with all of you....... I am thankful for taking after my Mom. My Dad and my sister on the other hand are more serious and it seems like they just can't relax and enjoy life. Anyway, enough of my rambling!! I am off tomorrow for a day with Cindy and lunch and I will be sure to post pics sometime tomorrow before we go camping for the weekend.
I also wanted to share this picture of this pretty flower with all of you. I planted these Asters a couple years ago and for the past couple years they haven't done much of anything. Well, back in 2004 when we lost a child, I found this memory stone and put it in my flowerbed. So, when I step out my back door...... I see this memory stone and think about the baby that we lost back in Feb 2004. Well, this year the asters came up RIGHT beside the memory stone and I thought they looked beautiful. I decided to take a close up of one of the flowers and this is the flower that I chose. Do you notice anything about the center of this flower? Well, if you look closely, you will notice that there is a heart in the middle of the flower. Yep, that particular flower that I took a picture of has a heart and not a single other flower out there has one. Isn't that strange? I always look for little signs in things that I do and when I noticed that and noticed that none of the other flowers had any...... it just kinda gave me chills. Perhaps it was just a little sign as if to say "I love you Mommy". Do you all ever look for little signs in things that you see or do? Am I the only one? Anyway, I just had to share the beautiful flower with all of you and the story to go along with it. I know that God has a plan for all of us and even though we may not understand why things go the way they go or why things happen a certain way.......we must just remember that God has a purpose and a plan and even though that time back in 2004 was the most difficult time in my life, I also know that it brought me closer to God, made my marriage stronger and taught me alot of things about life. I am not thankful for losing that child, but I am thankful for allowing God to light the way for me to see why I went through those tough times. I am sure that I wouldn't be the person that I am today and I most certainly wouldn't be the Mom that I am to Cameron. I thank God daily for my wonderful blessings and for giving me such a beautiful child in Cameron. He is most certainly the most precious gift that God has given me. An absolute blessing in every single way imaginable!
Hope you all enjoy some of God's blessings as well!!
