A happy first day of spring to you! Our forecast is calling for snow for the next few weeks, making us wonder if we brought Idaho's spring weather with us this year. Never mind, all the moisture will mean lots of flowers in due time!
"Nothing much happens without a dream. For something really great to happen, it takes a really great dream."
Extra days of cloudy weather give us more time for dreaming, which is what Frankie was caught doing recently (He fell asleep holding an arrow we bought him for an early birthday present)~
On a clear evening, lie on a blanket in your backyard and really look at the night sky. Gazing at the stars reminds us that there's more to life than we'll ever realize and that every day brings new chances.
~Sarah Ban BreathnachLast Friday was such a nice day, the children and I decided to sleep out on our deck under the stars (Of course, "sleep" is a term used lightly when sirens, trains, planes, automobiles, and extremely loud barred owls are your lullaby throughout the night).
"Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it."
~Johann van Goethe
AnnaMarie has been amazing us lately with her painting talents; look at this box she is decorating with characters from "The Hobbit!"
"Down deep in every human heart is a hidden longing, impulse, and ambition to do something fine and enduring."
We've been pulling out our Easter decorations and have been reminded of the gift of friendships, and how blessed we are to have such talented ones. Our blog friend Linnie sent us this goose egg she decorated a few years ago, and we still cherish it~
We don't know the artist behind this egg we found at a thrift store, but the cutwork on the shell is very boldly and beautifully done~
"The great opportunity is where you are. Do not despise your own place and hour. Every place is under the stars, every place is the center of the world."
May this spring bring you every blessing pertaining to the promise of new life.
