Okay, these are some of my favorite things right now, it changes each day you know?
Our sweet grandson came for a visit last night! I miss him so much. Because of not feeling well the visits have been far and few between. I soaked him up all I could. It astounds me how much I love this little guy. I mean, I thought I could only love like that my own children. I can't get enough of him. He very much loves his mama so he does better with the guys in the family. I have to kind of quietly sneak my way into his heart, which is hard for me, because I want him to love me the best , of course ;-) He does love his Popi, though, which is precious to see!
Levi and his Mimi!
This is two of my favorite things, my Victoria and my new hat! Don't you just love that name, Victoria. It seems so regal and feminine to me. Her name suits her perfectly! She is an amazing daughter. I prayed for years to have a little girl after my three boys. She is a huge blessing. She is so tender of heart, such a good big sister and becoming quite a force to be reckoned with in the kitchen! She adores wearing skirts because they make her feel so 'girly'. I learn so much from her. I tell her, " I want to be like her when I grow up"
Victoria and Mama
I LOVE this picture! Can you see the pictures of Brian and I in the background? They are my all time forever favorite pictures of us. They so display our love for each other and the joy we share as one. When I saw the lilacs there in front of the pictures I just had to capture it.
And, of course, LILACS! Who doesn't love lilacs? They are early this year. Usually, on Mother's Day I awaken to the whole house filled with lilacs. I mean, I think they pick all the bushes bare! Huge boquets of lilacs in nearly every room! So sweet. Do any of you have any tricks to make them last longer in the house? I have heard of smashing the stems so they can soak up more water, anything else?
Return to your rest, O my soul, for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you
