Joy in the Ordinary

Look around, really look around and you will find joy... joy in the everyday... joy in the ordinary things.

Megan and Great Grandma. Since this picture was taken her health had declined dramatically.   She is almost 92 and was recently diagnosed with Leukemia.  Sadly there will be no treatment for this new diagnosis.  Due to her age and existing health issues it would very hard for her.  Only the Lord knows the number of days she has left on earth.  We will cherish each one.
When you get your fishing line stuck in a tree you might have to get creative.  A broom stick, some pruners, string, and duct tape to the rescue to cut the line. 
Front step flowers. 
Someone is excited for baby cherry tomatoes. 
The military flight line must have changed recently.  We see helicopters fly back and forth, above our home, several days a week. 
A long hike along a creek. 
I could have stayed all afternoon watching Mama Duck swim with her babies. 
Like most of the Midwest it has been a very wet year.  Last night Chuck was finally able to get in the garden.  We planted 18 tomato plants that we received for free from Chuck's employer.  
Once down about half an inch it was pretty wet, but you do what you have to do.  
It makes my heart happy to see scenes like this.  My girl is at that in between stage and I know that she will quickly grow out of play.  
My parents pool is officially open!  
Be careful it you get too close... someone might squirt you! 
Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations... keep moving forward, friends.


  1. I am sorry about Grandma, this is hard, but the body just starts to break down. Love her and you do know where she is going so that will help. Cut kid as usual.

  2. Thanks for sharing the photos of Megan - she makes me smile 😊
