Finding the Blessings

As I walked around our yard yesterday, I noticed so many things that need tended to...
Dead, spent plants to be uprooted and thrown away, bushes to be trimmed and 
tended to, I need to plant my Fall garden if I'm going to have one, 
and weeds need to be pulled...

There weren't many pretty blooms yesterday, but I did find this one! 

Heavy on my mind this week has been the impending destruction of Hurricane Irma. 
I have a son and daughter-in-law evacuating Florida, and that's one reason the topic is 
ever present in my thoughts. Another reason is the recent Hurricane Harvey in Texas 
which impacted so many all around us. Many people lost their homes, cars, 
and belongings. But I guess, like the flower here, in the midst of all that turmoil 
and tragedy is the blessing that most escaped with their lives and their families. 
Even in the worst times, there is always something to be thankful for if we look for it.

Chair Before & After!

We found a set of old chairs...all of them broken except one. 
Painted, distressed, re-covered the cushion...
Love it!!!
