I almost didn't do a table center piece this year.
Doing holiday things are a challenge.

with inspiration from all my blogging friends, I went ahead and put a center piece together.

I thought I would stay whimsical

 I spotted this little guy I call Eric, at the supermarket. He had to come home with me.

 A few of pumpkins
 I will call it good.

I am so glad, I did
Thank you friends.

From Christmas past
I am seeing so much Christmas on the blogs.  I thought I would re-share a tree from the past.
Each year, the town has a tree decorating contest.
Then the trees are auctioned off.
The clinic always buys a few of the trees and this was one that was in the lobby of the clinic.
NO!! It is not under a chandelier, that is the topper!

I was and still am, in total awe of this tree.

I am changing my focus

Expanding my view. I was focusing on what was,  not what is.  That is a pretty narrow focus.

You need to climb to the highest hill.
Really look at the valley below.
Open your view to what could be and don't focus on what is. 

The possibilities are endless! 

When the sun sets tonight.  I will count the blessing the day has brought.

I will focus on a new tomorrow , along with all the possibilities to be great,  that the day will bring.

Most of all
 I will stay anchored.

Just a little something!

Our son Rod, moved his family to a canyon. There is a lot to be said about moving to a canyon.  

Tons of peace and quiet!

You get a lot of space.

 They have put in tons of work.

Finally, it is all coming together.
A real beauty!

With a small draw back-- just a little one, but pretty serious.

When Michelle, went to take the garbage out a critter was waiting for her.

Yes, it is a diamond back rattlesnake.  I guess he likes the new landscaping also.

MY Paradise

Why do I call it paradise?   
You only have to look up
to see heaven

Beauty even on the stormiest
Of nights.
or the beauty of nightfall

Maybe it's in the promise of a new day 

I only have to look up, to see the promise of God. That this is the day the lord has made.
