"Garden Neutrals"

One of life's precious moments

is when we are given

a gift that we never expected

that allows us to grasp each

moment and live with

a fearless heart...

My heart overflows with

gratitude to Sue Jackson...

for my little place with the

A place where I can embrace my

creativity and see the beauty

of small in my life...

A place that is blank page

where I can begin anew

and lay my troubles aside

for these moments...

 Thankful  for grace

 Thankful for the love and friendships

that surround me...

Thank you for every prayer,

every note & email

words of encouragement

and every ounce of love

that each of you have shared..

You can find me here

in my small piece of heaven

 #31 at Country Roads

Wishing you

love and joy

right where you are...

Wow! as usual Kate. You feel the same way about your space as I do mine. It's a place to express all different sides myself.

#31 looks like a space I would linger for a long time trying to absorb it all!

Continue to take care of yourself.
