Gratitude Journal #39

I love having botanical gardens close. Our own yard will not be featured in Better Homes and Gardens anytime soon, and so we visit botanical gardens to see and photograph flowers. At our area arboretum Saturday, we walked among blooming trees and bushes and a field of tulips dancing in a crisp breeze and bright sunlight. Of course, there were no daisies yet, but there were of my favorite flowers.

Today, I am grateful for time spent in the flowers.

Today, I am grateful for another weekend with Hoover at a nearby park, where he was loved on by lots of kids. One girl even gave him enthusiastic butt scratches and earned herself a kiss!

What are you grateful for today?


  1. Ah yes, spring. Even in SW FL where it's spring/summer 99.9% of the time, I see evidence of spring -- citrus trees blooming, cypress trees leaving out...Then in a couple of weeks, I'll get to see spring in the mountains of NC -- the leaves emerging from winter's sleep. God is good.

  2. I am grateful that my 6-month-old's chapped and infected cheek is finally looking better (thank you antibiotic ointment) and also that he is so good about having goo applied to his little chubby face three times daily.

  3. I'm so grateful that the Lord prevented us from making arrangements to fly to Prague this week! I was disappointed that my daughter had already made other plans, UNTIL the volcano erupted. Then I understood why the Lord had us postpone our visit until the summer!

  4. beautiful! grateful for the sun!


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
