"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Monday snap...

Hubby took this pic a few days ago while he was doing lawn work.  In my earlier days I would have been upset at the fluttering of dandelion seeds, they are after all a weed, but my little ones set me straight and hubby knew the memories this lone photo would evoke.

Today I will lay in the grass, damp with the morning dew, and let the warm rays of the sun fall on my body and warm my aching spirit and saddened soul.  Just for today I will remember those beautiful toe-headed sprites  of mine running in the morning sun, bare feet damp with the morning dew, blueberry picking and home made pancakes.  Just for today I will be in that place where no one ages, where children laugh, and no one gets sick.  Just for today I will shout to the moon and count the stars and know I am blessed.  Just for today...

as tomorrow starts a new chapter in this journey we call 'life.'


  1. Did you ever blow the fluff away and count the time? I remember doing that so many times, and did it just last week, to remind myself there is always beauty in a weed.

  2. *hugs* and God bless. ♥
    According to all I have read, every part of the dandelion is edible. Similar to other greens, if I remember right.
    Thinking of you.

  3. Beautiful Jojo! I think of you every day and pray happiness comes into your daily life and that you are feeling better. xoxoxo

  4. I have thought about you so many times in the past few weeks. I hope you are doing well!!! I am keeping you in my prayers and praying for some light in your life. xo Diana
