As I was packing up Christmas decorations,
I was thinking back over the year.
(yes, I am one of those who take down before New Years)
Where did the time go?
It seems as though the year melted away
like an ice cream cone....
gone before I really had time to enjoy it.
Here are a few of my favorite things
shared with you in 2011.
This gorgeous day in January when
the sky was so blue reflected in the lake.
A spring walk in the park with another
blue sky framed with the fresh green leaves
Dogwoods of Easter.
Do we detect a nature theme here...............
Surprise wildflower "secret garden"
Fall trip to the Ozarks
Beautiful Lake Greeson, Arkansas
Melrose Plantation tour with my
Home for Thanksgiving and Mama's
Rio Somba rose.
Beautiful Christmas gift of Pelicans
on the lake.
Not all was lovely....the drought, the unexpected
surgery, the relentless, record high heat of our summer..
but, for some reason,
my heart chooses to remember the beauty.
I pray your 2011 was beautiful........
looking forward to the blessings of 2012.
Till next time.....
