Spring is here!

Saturday, March 14th, 2015

A bit early…..but oh so beautiful!



Friday, March 13th, 2015

Our office is at the beginning of a dead end street. A few weeks ago someone dumped 6 chickens down at the end. I was feeding them with the help of a friend (bringing me chicken feed) for about a week until I realized that they had out foxed the fox and were still alive and thriving. So…I bought a 50lb bag of feed and claimed them as mine.

It has been several weeks now…. and I must say… I never knew the pure joy of watching chickens RUN as fast as they can to me every morning to get their breakfast! They are like old ladies running while holding up their skirts. So I pray they keep outfoxing that fox and continue to enrich my day!

Happy Thanksgiving…..

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…. It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
~Melodie Beattie
