Gems - Literal and Figurative!

This has been a really good week and there are a number of things I am truly thankful for and I'd like to share them with you on this Thankful Thursday...

For one, I am feeling especially well and have worked like an animal this week! I love that great feeling of accomplishment that comes from work well done. Thank you, Lord, for providing me with so much energy.

Secondly, my four year old granddaughter has begun calling me every evening to report on her day. It is usually a pretty hilarious and often times, informative conversation (which I am sure is not always terribly wonderful to my daughter and son-in-law)! What an absolutely delightful way to end the day!! Thanks Sydney Bell, for making my day, each and every day!

Lastly, I am enormously thankful for the presence of my future daughter-in-law in our family. She is a precious, adorable young lady who makes my son a very happy man! The two of them are currently working on a house together to move into after they are married in a year. Kudos to my sweet son for finding a gem for his bride-to-be! Ahh...my work is almost done!


30 Days 30 Photos - Day 17

I recently found these pieces of vintage jewelry while going through some storage boxes. I believe they once belonged to my mother-in-law. I also have some pieces that belonged to my mother. One of these days I'll get around to photographing more pieces to post. I think my mother-in-law must have been quite the styling lady in her day. You should see some of the fabulous 40's heels she wore!

Love the comment on my daughter's blog, "life changes, but God NEVER DOES". She has been through much in her young life, but that story is not mine to share. Thanks for caring enough to comment!!
