Most {Beautiful} Summer


It was here and now it is gone...

this season of this most beautiful Summer...

oh where did you go?


 
No matter how fast these Seasons come and go...
 
I will continue to press forward and....
 
 be a part of a gratitude journey.


Thankful for;

Sons and fathers....
 a son who stops by to check in on mom and dad



 These dainty flowers that bloom in a quiet corner of the garden



 Friday evenings and home made pizza along with...

 a lazy night with the family...

just being.




 Week ends in the city...
playing...
eating...
and simply catching up.




 Cupcakes




 Fall flowers bloom


 Morning studies on the deck




 More cupcakes


 


Red peppers in the garden





    Uncle Bob




Evening dinners on the deck




 Summer grilling



 Evening games
 Hot tea
Candles at night




 Flowers picked up on the way from home from a thoughtful husband




 Last walk around a college campus...new journey begins



 Purple daisy
Frogs in the pond
Squirrels running along the fence





Dinner out with neighbors



 Birds drinking and taking their baths
Sounds of splashing water
Birds chirping
Babies leaving  their nest


 Pug looks


Dinner out with daughter and old school friend


 Summer harvest shared with many


Flames of a camp fire


 Home made Jam
Plums from the tree


Evenings on the deck with older son
A family pet



 The husband makes Ribs for a crowd



 Summer evenings shared with neighbors and friends


 Bible study and dinner on the back deck


Apples and apple pies

"You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
 You anoint my hand with oil; My cup over flows."
Psalm 23:5




~enjoy the moments in gratitude.

Christine,
You have so much to be thankful for, and I love all these pictures. Your family is wonderful. The homemade pizza looks yummy. When my son wanted to be a chef, he made us homemade pizza sometimes and we enjoyed it so much. The apple pies, and the birds singing, and family surrounding us; all these things are so precious. Yes, we are blessed indeed. Have a beautiful week, my friend.
