I am so exited that spring is coming! My garden is already coming back to life. I am already getting blooms on my hibiscus bush. I am enjoying going out and watering my green babies. I will add a picture of the Blue Girl rose bush when it starts to leaf and bloom. My big tree out side my window is leafing again. ****My Blue Girl rose bush never leafed so the nursery replaced it with the Midnight Blue rose. I will have to wait till next year to try again.
Spring to me is a fresh start, a new beginning. It's perfect time for Easter. Jesus died and was reserected to give us new hope, a fresh start and a new be... » Read More

You all know who you are and have been thanked individually. It warms my heart to know I am so loved and never alone. I can't it express what that means to me! Hugs to you all!

blessings. No matter what we have gone through the rest of the year. I

life and heart, but it is celebrating surviving the hurt and heart
ache. I hope and pray that everyone has a blessed Christmas day, and a fresh new better blessed new year.Here is a gift from me to all who is interested in it...a poem written by me... What Christmas Should be

One of my loves is a Christian cartoon called VeggieTales. The best way to explain them is animated vegetables teaching the word of God in a simple, fun and silly way. I am a proud to be a single adult that loves these wonderful cartoons (no matter how many funny looks I get when my phone rings...lol). I proudly admit to all that I love VeggieTales.
On my hardest days that everything seems to go wrong, Veggie Tales comes to the rescue and make me smile and giggle. I have the sewing fabric that I have made personal items with, cd's, dvd's. I even made the songs into ring tones for my cell phone.
Here are a few clips and songs of this ... » Read More
