  1. Aren't fresh flowers in the home wonderful? I am not the best gardener out there, but for whatever reason, am really good at roses. We have a eucalyptus tree, so the vases usually are full with roses and eucalyptus.
    Making God a part of your everyday and everywhere is wonderful. I strive to do that and have recently come to realize that I do a lot of thinking without including Him in the thoughts. I am working on that.
    Your one wish shows your heart as a mother and I love it!
    It is a blessing to know you better.
    -Gilded Grace
