We call our back yard Peterman's Grove, It's Paradise to us. It's a place to relax and to enjoy life. Every year we have our family picnic here...the kids can run and climb the trees and go for a boat ride or just set back and fish....our Paradise! I just wanted to show you all how beautiful it is in the fall. Today the sky was just so blue...you just want to set back and watch the world go by...our Paradise! Life passes by so fast we need to stop and smell the flowers...Never know what tomorrow will bring!
I spent about 5 hrs with Missy today...you can tell we made apple dumplings. She was having a good time. She tries her best at every thing she does...The whole time she was just telling me how her mother does things and how she learned to cook and bake from her. Her mother passed away 5 yrs ago but it seem like her mother is always there with her. I was right there beside her to give her a hand when she needed it. GOD bless her for trying so hard. While the dumpling were baking we did word puzzles ...to pass the time. We can all learn from her.....be in no hurry and enjoy life for what it is. REGARDLESS! The dumplings were great, made with LOVE!
Here we are my family...well my one son is missing for now. A very cold Sunday morning around 43 degrees. And a little foggy. I had my camera in one hand and the other in my pocket...brrrr. Once the sun broke through it was beautiful. . Me and my sons. My gift from GOD..He was watching over us today...even though we had a beautiful ride. Once we got parked and was taking our coats and Helmet off ..One of the riders( my brothers sis- n-law) fell to the grown and was having a seizure . She had never had one before. We called 911...half of the riders went with her..because it was either their mother or wife. Here she had a stroke....We rode about 75 miles and she was behind her DH. Thank GOD she didn't have this seizure while we were on the road. Over all we had a good ride!
Today was our last day to fish for the year. As you all know I bring Missy to my back yard and give her golf cart rides that she loves and I let her fish for as long as she wants. She is such a delight to be around. Today we didn't catch any fish But it didn't matter to her. She just sets there and feels the wind in her face and watches the fish eat her bait. As she was fishing I was putting stuff away for the winter. She would call me over to put more bait on her hook cause she don't know how. I use bread and she had never seen that before only worms...so the first time she saw me put bread on my hook and caught a fish ...her eyes got real big and she said " that is magic" So to her this whole thing fishing in my pond and using bread is all magic. What ever it takes to put that smile on her face..I will keep doing.
We all need to take just a few moments a day and thank GOD for all the gifts he has given us...Missy is one of my gifts. That I'm Blessed to have.
