Where does the time go?  It is so hard to believe that it is already August!  My Dad used to say that the older you get, the faster the time goes by.  He was so right about that! 

I love that my flowers are doing well.  I am not getting as many tomatoes as I had hoped for....but grateful for the ones I have.  This summer has been one for the records.  We have had plenty of rain and the cool weather we have had is just unheard of in the summer in Arkansas!  It has been wonderful!

I miss Pete so much!  We loved this time of year with the flowers and garden and of course, watching all the hummingbirds!  It still just doesn't seem real that he and Jennifer are both gone.  I will miss them so grateful for the promise of seeing them again!

Mom and Dad loved this time of year too.  I have so many good memories of them!  People that still have their parents are so blessed!

I got my shots again yesterday.....makes me feel bad for about a week, but still so much better than chemo!

Kimberly has been a sewing maniac.....making so many wonderful quilts and gifts!  She is amazing!  Her talent amazes me!  She is so creative.  She is the best sister ever....always there for me.  Of course, she won't let up on the idea of me moving to Little Rock.  She just can't understand that I love it here and am happy here.

I have the pleasure of keeping my neighbor's beautiful baby girl.....Rylee...she is four months old today and she is such a joy to me!  She is the sweetest and happiest baby....always smiling!  Children are the best medicine ever.....for mental and physical health!

Our great-niece, Abbi, is pregnant and expecting in the Spring!  We keep her close in our prayers....praying she will have a healthy baby.  She is very excited about the baby....I just don't think she really realizes the responsibility she now has. 

I still love my card making.....truly the best therapy ever for me!  I can go into the craft room and lose my worries. 

Although I have sad and down days at times, I am very grateful for what I have!  God is good and He is good ALL the time!
