Some People You Never Forget

I saw a quote today that resonated with me. Our culture has accepted two huge lies.  The first is that if you disagree with someone's lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do.  Both are nonsense. You don't have to compromise convictions to be compassionate. ----Rick Warren----- I loved the above quote from Rick Warren and while I imagine it was spurred on because of the current "equality" campaigns I … [Read more...]

Teapot Tuesday

How about this gem of a different type of teapot gleaned from Ebay for a mere $5?   The owner was not really sure what it was but it is a handmade treasure to me and one that I am sure will brew an interesting pot of tea.  No markings of any kind on it and definitely nothing has ever been brewed or put into this pot yet but there will be!!!  A great display piece with unusual colors and markings!!!     … [Read more...]

Happy List, Anyone????

The frost on the trees on a winter morning as it sparkles and shines like diamonds. The comment on my blog that brings a smile … [Read more...]

Food and Friday Fill In’s

Let's start the day off right with some delightful food pictures!!!   Last night we had dinner with Micah and Angela at a fabulous place in 5 Points (Jacksonville) called Black Sheep.  It was wonderful and any place that focuses on fresh local "handcrafted" ingredients is okay with me.  We were not disappointed with any of our selections and service was great!       Are you hungry now???  It was a seriously good meal and the company was even … [Read more...]

A Special Day for a Special Guy

Today is a special day!  It is World Down Syndrome Day 2013 and today I celebrate my brother in law, Carlton!   Carlton is such a joy to our family and over the past several years, especially, I have shared on my blog many things about how Carlton has enriched our lives.   We had the privilege to live with him for about 7 months and it was an adventure beyond my wildest dreams at times but one that I would never trade in the world. One of my favorite things was waking up to his morning … [Read more...]

Teapot Tuesday

A recent trip to South of the Border (another post on that will be forthcoming!) netted me a beach themed teapot for a mere $5!  Now I am not proclaiming that this one will increase in value but it sure fits in nicely with my "beachy retreat" in my bathroom, don't you think?   … [Read more...]
