Flower Flim-Flam Falderal

Isabella loves, loves, LOVES flowers!  My mother-in-law has a silk arrangement that has been decimated over the last couple of years from her allowing Bells to have one flower after another whenever she visits and asks for it.
When I picked Bells up from school today, she said, "My pink flowler (Bella speak)!"  She was beside herself that she had left her flower behind.
We knocked on the door and rang the bell to the school and the psychologist who works with the little ones answered let us in.  We found the teacher and found out that, no, Isbella didn’t have any flowers.  However, the aides and psychologist were all given a bouquet by the teacher.  Dr. P, with the teacher’s okay, happily gave her bouquet of pink "flowlers" to Isabella who has been carrying them around all day still wrapped in clear plastic!
Are we blessed or what?  We are surrounded by lovely people and for that I am grateful.  There’s so much garbage going on in the world and it is great to be blessed.
Have you been blessed by someone today?  Along with what I wrote above, it has been a good day.  Isabella has behaved well and is healthy and a short visit to two of our favorite cafe owners was delightful.  Also, I know I am prayed for daily and that adds to my blessings.
Is there something you do or try to do on a regular basis to bless other peoples’ lives?  I try to remember to look cashiers in the eye at the check out and give them a smile and a thank you. 
Do you like to swim?  Can you swim well?  I was a strong swimmer last time I took a dip.  As I have mentioned before, I don’t like to be wet but learned how to swim at a young age.
Ocean, lake or pool?  If I had to choose?  Pool; least amount of slimy things.
Ideally, if you could do anything you wanted to do anywhere you wanted to do for the next four days what would it be?  I would like to be in a place that feels like home but is in a wooded area.  I would have a couple of good books and friends popping in and out at all times of the day and evening and good black and white movies and a blue ray.  I would like to sleep soundly for a good nine hours straight and feel refreshed for the first time in 29 years.
However, the reality is that The Girl and Bells are supposed to finally be moving back here this weekend.  As she finally has a job, she needs to save enough to move on her own again.  The Girl, that is;)  I’m not looking forward to it as we have a humble home but we are blessed to be able to keep this house for now at least.
Be blessed, dear ones, g

  1. Have you been blessed by someone today? I am blessed by my boss everyday. I am so thankful to be in the position I am. She is so supportive. Is there something you do or try to do on a regular basis to bless other peoples’ lives? I’ve been told my laugh is contagious. I am a very positive person and find humor in the little things. So I believe my laugh and positive attitude bless someone at least every day. (I"m sure that may be hard to tell from some of my most recent posts.) Do you like to swim? Can you swim well? Yes and yes. Ocean, lake or pool? pool Ideally, if you could do anything you wanted to do anywhere you wanted to do for the next four days what would it be? Rest and relax on the beach with a good book……ride my bike……relax in the hot tub with a good book. That would be a perfect day for 4 days.Still no call or email but I have faith. : )Have a great weekend!

  2. Someone many years ago asked me to describe what my perfect day would be like. I did discribe what I imagined to be my perfect day. Many years later, I had my real life perfect day that was not what I had imagined it would be but it was my simple perfect day that was not really planned but unfolded.

  3. I prefer the ocean for swimming when I get the rare chance to visit the Atlantic. Looking someone in the eye and giving them a kind word is an act of grace. Time and time again I’m reminded of just how honest and forthright you are; a real rarity is the world today. Continue proudly to be a brother in Christ and a distant and loyal friend. Isabella remains in my prayers. Oh yeah, I’m a book nut myself. Problem is, when I start reading I don’t want to stop. Perhaps I’ll write a book myself. Will you read it?…grin. Let us keep up the good fight for our country and rights granted under the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Lies beget lies. God’s truth will prevail.J.W.L.
