Welcome! I'm so glad you found me...:) If you have a love of DIY, crafting, thrift shopping, or vintage, then you will most likely enjoy your visit here! If you are a fellow mobile home dweller who is looking looking to update your tired, old mobile home, then be sure to check in often as my hubby and I update ours on a budget. I look forward to your visits and hope you will stay a while and browse through some older posts...:) Grab a drink, get comfy and sit a spell! Blessings....Vicky
I wish I had a pretty vignette or tablescape to share with you today, but I do not. Trust me, you would not want to look at my table right now! It is covered in my kitchen stuff that did not get packed up. Not exciting...at all!
Anywho, I felt the need to go outside for a bit and soak up some of this glorious Florida sunshine and warm breezes. It is a spectacularly gorgeous day today. I have been contemplating life a lot lately. I've had a lot on my mind...besides the kitchen remodel that is. This little walk around the yard was good for me. It helped me clear my head of the negativity that sometimes like to creep into my happy thoughts.
You know, real life stuff...heavy stuff. Seems I'm either very happy or very sad lately. Fortunately the happiness wins out the majority of the time, but those sad times are so hard on my heart.
Life has so many ups and downs.
I try hard to keep it real here on my little blog, thus the reason I'm even typing this post. Life is unfortunately, not all sunshine and roses. But, life is good and God is great and He takes my worries from me when they get too heavy for me to carry around. He's good like that!
As I was reviewing these photos to share, I realized that almost all of them were shots either looking up or down. Kind of my life...kind of like your life too if I had to guess.
I'm sitting here listening to the Blend on TV. I love music and so funny how songs speak to you when you're in a contemplative mood. They reach out and squeeze your heart so much it hurts or cause tears to roll slowly out of the corners of your eyes. And on the flip side, sometimes they are so catchy, I find myself dancing while I work...:)
Have you heard I Hope You Find It by Cher? It's a really pretty song.
I love the chorus....
And I hope you find itWhat you're looking forI hope it's everything you dreamed your life could beAnd so much more
And I hope you're happy, wherever you areI wanted you to know thatAnd nothing's gonna change thatI hope you find it
It got me thinking....and I can honestly say I'm happy. Very happy.
Can I ask for more?
And my answer to that question is yes....I can.
I want for those I love the most to be happy too. Life isn't just about me and my happiness. And again, I find myself turning it over to God, praying for happiness for those I know are struggling to find it. And, I'll keep praying until they do.
Thank you for listening to me ramble. I am grateful for each of you dear readers friends. I appreciate the fact that I can use my blog to catalog not only my home improvements, thrifty finds, trips and so on, but also my thoughts and feelings from time to time. I'll never be the blog that has thousands of followers. I don't want that. It would leave me with no time to communicate with you faithful friends that visit me often and leave me the most wonderful comments.....even when I sometimes can't find time to reply. It makes my heart happy to have friends around the world, friends I've never met in person, but friends just the same. Again, I thank you.
