Yesterday I took a walk over at the park. I decided it would be better to walk during lunch than it would be to go and eat something unhealthy. Not that I am much of a health nut because I am not. But I am always up for a little serenity in my life. The park does it to me. A place called “The Garden” is always kept so pristine.
Colors were vivid in the garden.
I was the only one there.
I found a beautifully carved metal box at the entrance of the park which held information about the park and the different vegetation.
Then I found serenity
and I stopped to reflect on what I have to be thankful for
Only a few hundred feet from the park along the walkway it opened up into the local cemetery. The colors were even more vibrant. I walked along the path and saw many names that meant nothing to me but had a lot of meaning for someone else. It took my breath away and I knew that in a few more weeks this same place will be adorned with colors of Christmas. I will want to come back.
As I was leaving the sun broke through the clouds for just an instant and I took a deep breath.
The day was unusually warm. The sky was dark and very cloudy and on my way home I was chasing the storm.
As soon as I walked in the door, the love of my life greeted me with a big hug and smile and asked how my day had gone. It just can’t get any better than that. No matter what storm I was chasing…or what my day had been like, I knew I had come home to serenity.
My strong sweetheart is healing. Not as quickly as he would like, but he is healing.
I am grateful for his calm serenity. All the storms he has faced and trials he has gone through; he is such an inspiration to me. He is a man of honor, integrity and courage.
He is my serenity

It has been brought to my attention…that I have been neglecting my blog. Not only have a few friends noticed but one of my 3 children mentioned it to me. Yes, I haven’t been blogging. I don’t have a very good reason, just that I haven’t been. Summer came and went, then came back again. Yes the weather in my part of the country is warm VERY WARM. I was all ready to pull out what few items of winter clothing I had and had to put them back up on the shelf! I took some amazing photos of my Northern grandies in August. I will share a few of those photos and also a few fun facts about Thanksgiving….which I didn’t know! These little turkeys will be visiting for Thanksgiving this year. We will have a house full…I like it that way….
For some reason Lauren was so serious this little photo session, I think she was modeling for me LOL
There are many of her but these were a couple of my favorites.
Owen also had a serious side during this photo session
It is hard for Ryan to sit still long enough for me to take his picture so I am thankful for anything I can get!
Well have you all had enough? Well don’t fret….they is a lot more to come….just not today!
This one is for you BARB! LOL
