Wishing you a day of thoughtful, joyful observance of this National holiday.
A few pictures from our trip to my favorite cemetery…
Yesterday it occurred to me that I have many ancestors from generations ago who are buried within a couple of hours of our home. I have never visited any of their burial sites but I started researching their locations and have found the first one on my list. Doesn’t that sound like a great field trip to take my kids on this summer? So many great people to remember…
I’m missing my Grandpa today. A year ago this weekend we were in Denver visiting him. He passed away a week later. It was a precious weekend, one I’m so grateful we experienced.
Wishing you a Valentine’s Day of simple joys, heart-felt hugs and love notes. I hope it’s great!
“It is by studying little things, that we attain the great art of having as little misery, and as much happiness as possible.” -Samuel Johnson
I feel like I’ve been studying a lot of big things lately, big things that leave me exhausted and trembling. It’s time to take a step back and study some little things.
It’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow.
I have a lovely list of things I wanted to accomplish before this holiday hit. Some really fun ideas, some really thoughtful ones too. But as happens all too often, life got in the way. I remind myself that this really isn’t as big a holiday as the stores would have us think. I didn’t want to do it to impress anybody, only to bring to life ideas I have flitting around in my head, and to express my love for my family in fun ways.
As I sat with my hot chocolate and heart shaped marshmallows, I said good-bye to the big plans I’d made, and decided that tomorrow will be a day of little things. Little things done with love.
