Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

A Father's Day Tribute

I'm dedicating this poem to my husband, Kelly, who has done so much for all of our children:

What Is A Dad?

A Dad is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall,
but instead picks you up
brushes you off,
and lets you try again.
A Dad is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes,
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt.
A Dad is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you-even when you fail...

Happy Father's Day Kelly!
Love you lots!
