The flowers in my life!

"Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet:
there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires."

I am definitely finding this to be absolutely true. 

When I step back from the "bouquet" and stop trying to make it look as I thought it should be,
I find the arrangement,  just as it is, 
so much more beautiful then I could ever have imagined! 

I hope that you are all having a marvelous Sunday!

Bed rest, Doctor's orders!

Last time I posted I shared a picture of a smiling horse.  Well, me and that horse ain't smilin' no more!  I seem to have a very similar expression on my own face right now.   I am sitting here on the bed, under doctor's orders to stay put due to a problem with my leg, and it needing to be up and resting as much as possible.  I have to admit that I do not mind the chance to ignore house chores for the next couple of days, but I really don't "do" sitting still all too well.  
It is just for a day or two, so I think I night survive that alright and will simply use the time to play the princess, have others wait on me, and enjoy the chance to be on the laptop as much as I want.
Happy Sunday to all.

Life is a real Roller Coaster ride of late.  Some days I am on the top and enjoying the view and the thrill of it all.
Other days I am down and hitting those treacherous curves that give one a painful kink in the neck.  
Some times the uphill climb gives me cause to shudder, knowing what is waiting for me once I get there.
But as I near the top, the thrill and excitement kick in once again and I am ready to enjoy all that the ride has to offer.
No matter what the days offer me,  I find the little joys in life and I always keep on smiling!
I hope you are all finding something to smile about today!!
