"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

Oh he is adorable and so is your daughter. That picture of them blowing on the dandelion is priceless. Looking at him just makes ya want to hug his little cute face. Isn't being a grandma the greatest!!!

I saw Mary the comment you left on my blog today before I even had a chance to tell you that I passed an award on to you. Even if you don't have time or prefer not to pass on awards, I just want you to know that you and your friendship are a gift to me even if only through blog land. I think if we met in person you would be one of those friends that I would feel as though I've know forever. I can just tell. Thank you for inspiring me creatively and through your perspective and writings on life. I love your quirky style.
