Some of my many blessings and joys





I just found this lovely St. Francis statue at an estate sale this weekend. It is about 5' tall, and looks amazing in my woods.

Lily of Valley ~ I look forward to it all year. It fills my room with the sweetest aroma, and makes me very grateful.

And can't you just smell the lilacs? This bush has the most amazing, huge, fragrant and dark purple blossoms. It always blooms right around my sixth child's birthday (which is Thursday), and I always remember those sweet first days getting to know my newest son, while enjoying a huge boquet of these lovelies.

And lastly, my first grader lost her front teeth, and we are all adjusting to her new look. Her name is Cecilia. Ever try saying that with no front teeth?

Life is beautiful!

Your blessings are just beautiful, particularly little Cecilia! In fact, reminds me I took a photo of a beautiful stained glass image of St. Cecilia on Friday, I'll be posting it soon on my blog. :-)

Lovely St Francis as well. I came across a statute of him in a little overgrown garden (no house in sight) in Italy with a well beside him and his own flock of birds. It was lovely. One thing I always love about Catholic countries is the shrines one comes across on roadsides and other places. I do agree St Francis looks remarkably well in your wood. Long may he remain there!
