Peaceful Sunday

I’ve been staring at the screen, trying to figure out a good post, going and doing my treadmill time, coming back, nope, that didn’t do it. I just keep coming back to the mental image of the plum tree my kids gave me a few years ago–a stick with promise, something a little kid would be delighted to go play swords with–and what a beautiful, perfectly shaped leafy specimen it’s already grown into. (Wait–it’s four years old already? Next thing you know it’ll be heading off to college!)

It’s the simple things. I feel so blessed by so much and by so many.

(Edited Monday to add the photo.)

A few little blessings here and there really add up, just like hours make days make years.

Just what we need from time to time — a little peace and quiet. And if a blog posting doesn’t show up, skip it.

sometime just a beautiful picture is post enough (says the blogger that always runs off at the “mouth” in long, wordy posts)

great looking tree!

Sometimes the muse is AWOL!

Watching trees grow is an excellent way to mark time. I think I need to hurry up and plant my own plum!
