Beautiful Weekend

Sunday, May 26, 2013

This has been a beautiful weekend. It has been so nice outside, with temps in the low 70's and a nice breeze blowing gently. Hubby and I mowed grass for all our kids while they were all away at King's Island. Imagine the surprise when they got up this morning to a newly cut lawn.
We also went to the cemetery and placed flowers on our sons' grave, something no parent should ever have to do. But life must go on, and we are just so thankful we had him in our lives for almost 34 years. Life is not always what we want it to be, so we must accept the things that it throw at us, whether it be good or bad.
We just need to stop and look around us to see all the beauty that God has blessed each and everyone of us with. Be thankful your children and grandkids are around to enjoy the present and hopefully the future with you. Give God the credit for all the blessings in your life today. There is always something in your life to be thankful for, even in the bad times!

    The past couple of days has been beautiful. Bet it is a lovely surprise for all your kids. Sorry to hear your son has passed away but glad to hear you have moved on.

    I absolutely agree with your views especially on your last paragraph. Like you, I thank God for all our blessings everyday, no matter if the day is good or not.

    Take care & have a fabulous day/evening! (depending what time you read this) emoticon
