America the beautiful, the buzz of the bees...Being thankful and being blessed!

What a great country we live in, I am reminded daily of the freedoms we enjoy, and so appreciate all of it.I know I am so fortunate to live in a clean community, with safe water to drink, one which is relatively crime free, where I can walk at night without fear, and am never afraid of the noises in the night! Something I will probably never take for granted again.

Well this month has flown by, not enough done, more plans that I'd like to get accomplished...but I am so thankful for the blessings in my life. In the past month or two, we have reconnected with friends from over 35 years ago, seen our two youngest grandchildren reach new milestones, first birthdays, walking, learning new tricks and DS2 and his Emmikins are expecting another bundle for us to love. Life is pretty grand at the moment. Have to share, a photo of the Professor in wonderment at all the bees buzzing in the trees while still in bloom. Then my friend showing the table topper she made and I quilted for her. She also did a charity quilt which I quilted for her. There is also a photo of another friends "Farmers Daughter" quilt.... I adored the colors of this scrappy quilt. I had the privilege of quilting it for her.

Then this wonderful applique quilt, an extremely talented lady here did and permitted me to quilt for her. I enjoyed each of these projects... for different reasons. Loved the color combinations, or the pattern...or just looking at the beautiful quilts while I put a design on them. I really am a blessed woman.

Too many pretties, I am overstimulated. In the best way possible, and you are right we are an incredibly fortunate nation.

So good to read such a positive post - if only more folks knew how to count their Blessings the world would be a much happier place to live in. :0)
