    Imagination a Child's Play

    Friday, March 30, 2012

    Plush gardens dot my floors
    Peter Rabbit keeps hopping around
    Imagination has brought ‘Beatrix Potter’ into my home this week


    Spring Breeze

    Thursday, March 29, 2012


    Warmth is riding on the breeze

    My windows are opened welcoming spring to rid winter from my home

    I am washing walls and reveling in hopes of this new season.


    Blanketed with Love

    I found some sweetness in my photo files this morning I thought I would share the joy.
    Can you spot the two little darlings having fun with one wonderful Aunt?

    Trying to bring spring`s hope into our home...
    A little hard when winter`s frozen memories are falling
    and sickness is present!

    Alas we did change out our seasonal books
    made some old-fashioned ice-cream
    and hunted some pussy willows 

    Little details that help
     lift hopes of spring.

    Nursing the boy through his currant viral trial!

    Uncle Leonard

    Wednesday, March 21, 2012

    Tight buds were placed on my sills the morning of my Uncles last earthly breaths.

    Grief pulled me away into the world of loved ones, memories, and good-bye.

    What I left as hidden, brought forth beauty hews, orange, a favorite of my uncle.

    A gift from my creator, a God who my uncle is dwelling face to face with, gifts of Grace!

    Memories of my uncle are bursting with every orange petal; they will slip away, though the impact of his life will not

    In loving memory I will…

    Live a life of laughter.

    Serve with friendship to the lonely.

    Learn to lead.

    Give generously.
    But there’s far more to life for us. We’re citizens of high heaven! We’re waiting for the arrival of the saviour, the Master, Jesus Christ, who will transform our earthly bodies into glorious bodies like his own. He’ll make us beautiful and whole with the same powerful skill by which he is putting everything as it should be, under and around him. Philippians 4:20-21

    Uncle Leonard, Thank you for blessing me, noticing me, loving me. I will miss you.


    Reflections in Paint

    Tuesday, March 13, 2012

    The power of attention, composing of thoughts, gifts of art, history and geography reflected on paint, sun wrapped around learning moments.
    These are the elements
    That fills my school, my students with wondrous beauty.

    Sometimes for me life steals away to extraordinary
    For me always when my Mayflower arrives for a visit
    My Little Sister

    When she is around my days feel lighter, more pleasant, filled with sweetness.
    She engages the littles in the wonder of Aunty.
    She brightens our lives.We were blessed to have her with us for such a nice long visit, and hearts ached when goodbyes were said.

    Beloved Beauty

    Wednesday, March 7, 2012


    Somehow time slipped away my baby girl and grew her into a wondrous new age.
    She whirled and twirled into the dance of five.
    Miraculous is the sweetness that surrounds our beauty’s life
    Our Dear Davina Beloved and Beautiful!


    Cloud Nine

    Monday, March 5, 2012

     They came from the land of heat and red dirt, crossed the continents to brave these cool northern woods

    We joufully shared our lovely land of white and the nature all around.

    Pinned prints of wild animals to trees and thrilled the kids with a wild ‘cap’ hunt.

    Spent time sharing in the joys of friendship, treasuring

    ~ treasuring ~

     each single moment. 

    Gasping with thanks for these added memories.
    And now I fear ordinary life has been wrecked for me…
    How does one come down from cloud nine?
