In my cup::
She is not comfortable in jeans anymore. She fussed the entire time I had her in them the other day. They were even loose ones. I think her tummy and her skin prefer soft things now. I went to Target with a gift card we had been given and purchased two pairs of cute sweat pants. She has plenty of sweaters and such but we needed a few more pants.
We are taking things one day at a time as always. This way if she is having a really bad day we can just close the curtains and be together her and I without disappointing anyone or ruining plans.
Fresh cut flowers always make me smile. I love all kinds. These beauties came from the Whole Foods. My sweet hubby brought them home a few weeks ago. They remind me of sunshine and and an open heart.
++ For all those facing joblessness and possibly losing their homes, may God bring them solace and peace in their circumstances.
++ for peace in the Holy Land, Iraq, the Ukraine, St Louis and anywhere where there is injustice and unrest. May God always be the Way, the Hope and the Truth. May He bring healing and consolation to all in harms way.
