Finding Grace and Joy

this has been a week of mixed blessings. my great aunt passed away at the age of 90. she lived life to the fullest and was still going strong when she celebrated her birthday a few weeks ago. she was who i want to be. a gracious, southern lady whose wish for everyone was to be kind to one another. while there is sadness among family here, i know there is such rejoicing in heaven among the family waiting there.

on the other hand my husband and i made a quick trip to the outer banks for a blessing of peace and rest before going back to teaching next week. I have many photos to share but the words i saw on the back of a truck today are what i will intend to make my mantra for years to come. a simple bumper sticker with
powerful words.

i'd also add don't postpone love, laughter, hugs, kindness or graciousness
life is too short to postpone anything.


  1. Beautiful!! I love it...thanks for the reminder! And, thanks for your prayers, they are so appreciated. I'll be praying for you as school starts...I remember those first few days!
    Your right about Jack...he's a totally ham. Not sure where he gets that from;)

  2. Dearest sweet dale, so sorry for your loss. Your lovely aunt sounded like a beautiful inspiring lady. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
    Thank YOU so much for sharing that sweet reminder of such a beautiful sentiment! Have a lovely merry happy mid-week and love to you!
