Memorial Day

In honor of our fallen soldiers...


Day is done, gone the sun,
From the hills, from the lake,
From the sky.
All is well, safely rest,
God is nigh.

Go to sleep, peaceful sleep,
May the soldier or sailor,
God keep.
On the land or the deep,
Safe in sleep.

Love, good night, Must thou go,
When the day, And the night
Need thee so?
All is well. Speedeth all
To their rest.

Fades the light; And afar
Goeth day, And the stars
Shineth bright,
Fare thee well; Day has gone,
Night is on.

Thanks and praise, For our days,
'Neath the sun, Neath the stars,
'Neath the sky,
As we go, This we know,
God is nigh.

Enjoying Spring and Celebrating a Graduation!

We celebrated our daughter's college graduation this week. She's our third child to graduate with three more to follow in the next year and a half! Phew...we are halfway there. {smiling} It's funny how fast these past four years have flown seems like only last week Alyssa was a giggly high school senior trying to decide where she even wanted to go to college. Now, she's a beautiful young lady, ready to tackle the world and (keeping our fingers crossed) begin her career. We are so proud of you, Alyssa!!

We are enjoying beautiful weather here in the Atlanta area. Spring temps in the high 70's and just enough rain to keep all those flowers blooming. I hope you have enjoyed Spring where you live.

New dollies are in the works and will be available soon for purchase in my Etsy shop. I will have pics to share with you shortly...stay tuned...

Wishing you many blessings....Susan

Where does the time go?

Gosh...has it really been two weeks since I've posted? I've been infected with a big old case of Spring Fever these past few weeks. The weather has been GORGEOUS here in the Atlanta area. Hubs and I have been busy with our 'to do' list in preparation for painting the house this summer. We thought we would have a Let's-Work-Off-Some-Of-Your-College-Tuition house painting party since all four kiddos will be finished with classes in the next couple of weeks. :-)

Our daughter, Alyssa, is preparing for her college graduation in a couple of weeks. I can hardly believe our baby is finished with her undergrad degree! She will receive her Bachelor of Science degree with a major in biology and a minor in gerontology. Now it's time to join the workforce and she's been busy sending out resumes and following up on job applications. It's a full time job, finding a full time job! Please keep her in your prayers as she moves into this next phase of her life.

I'm thinking of painting and re-working my studio...just so it flows better and is more comfortable to work in each day. Right now it is just a mish-mash of left over furniture and a large roughly made (though thoroughly appreciated Honey) work table. I found these work spaces that I really like. be this organized....

Wishing you a blessed evening...I'll chat again soon...Susan
