While strolling…swiftly…between the family room and kitchen yesterday I caught a glimpse out of the corner of my eye. I paused and tried to focus through the rain spattered window. A single-fragile touch of purple amidst the green vines on my back porch. I reached over and grabbed my phone and rushed outside, with chill-bumped arms and developing tears, and clicked a pic.
What a Pleasant Surprise!
For those of you not familiar with my story about Morning Glories…this is the nick-name my grandfather called me. His house was virtually surrounded by these wandering twisting vines and the soft bluish blooms were many. I loved the innocent beauty of these blossoms. My grandfather told me once that as beautiful as they were I was more beautiful to him. “What a thought to take with you!”
So I have finally found a place to plant them and followed through. The creeping vines have towered quickly spreading to other surfaces around the planters. I have been anticipating the first bloom…
So here it is…beginning it’s bloom closing in the rainy evening hours. All I have to say is “Thank you Hidaddy for catching my eye and giving me a heart-tugging hug.
I cannot wait to see the vines in full bloom!
“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”
With my coffee in hand I began my morning of habitual and routine actions. I checked my Facebook and posted the numerous replies…bounced over to Swagbucks and did a search for my morning swag…then the all important checking of my Blog Stats. The notifications tab was bright and starred meaning something good waited for me. My heart was near racing when I opened the tab and found a nomination for the “Sunshine Award“. With a thick cloud cover outside I still had A Little Sunshine to Start My Day!
Let me begin by thanking indrajitpatra….written from the soul. I am very honored and thank you for the nomination. Words cannot express the appreciation I feel for this acknowledgment of my blog as well as the spontaneous outburst of dancing, on my wood floors, in my fuzzy socks. “I can mark exercise off my list of things to do for the day!”
As the rules state I am to thank the blog/blogger for the nomination…
I need to answer some questions….and nominate 10 blogger/blogs for the same honor!
Once again…Thank you indrajitpatra…written from the soul for this nomination. This blog opens the heart to seek the beauty in life.
The soul-seeking questions:
Love or Money?
High Salary or Job Satisfaction?
Job satisfaction…that salary gets taxed and then there is nothing left.
Anything written by Nicholas Sparks…
Who is the Television Character you simply adore?
Leroy Jethro Gibbs and Anthony Dinozo…from NCIS! There are many others but alas…I have time constraints.
Most Christian music and Country music and anything by Josh Groban and Michael Buble’. “Quit shaking your head…I like some good old Rock and Roll too!”
Favorite type of movie?
Romantic Comedies or maybe Action Suspense…with some Horror thrown in.
Please take a few moments and explore this buffet of difference I enjoy each day. There is humor and life lessons with personality plus to be found in these blogs! As for me I am off to try and finish the decorating of my classroom for Vacation Bible School this next week. I have the beautiful Victoria Falls as one of the main scenes and will be recreating The Matterhorn Sunday after church. There will be a seating arrangement resembling an airplane facing a cockpit where another teacher will lead as the pilot… “I found out yesterday he was in the Air Force!” I will show you the pics after I finish…if the decorations are any good! HeHe! Have a great day!
