|Interesting where life takes us and more so how we react to it.|

Happy Mother's day to all mothers in our families: Tina, Nedret, Rachel, Deborah, Alicia, Katherine and Sarah for their efforts in raising their children. And thanks to all their mothers and grandmothers who came before us.
I became a mother in 1966, let's see that makes me a mother for a total
of 52 years...AMAZING and a grandmother for 19 years. It's definitely
easier to be a GRANDMOTHER! Here I am with my amazing twin grand
daughters who stopped by with their family on their way to So.

Our spring flowers especially roses are in FULL BLOOM, but summer's heat is sneaking up on us. It was 98 degrees yesterday which isn't springlike at all. Oh well, we live in the high desert. Summer always feels like the LONGEST SEASON and spring and fall just commas.
|Hubby pruned the roses and they are blooming like crazy|
|Yellow roses of Texas are lovely|
|Too many on one stem to cut for flower arrangements inside|
|Rose plants from Walmart are doing well|
|Honeysuckles smell so swet plus Oleander bushes are blooming|
|Then there is our sad garden with onion bulbs going to seed|
|Little 4 ft peach tree has lots of fruit this year too.|
|Grape vines are growing back after their massacre!|
|Tall tree was suppose to be a sage bush, it will have purple blooms|
|Front yard has volunteer desert marigold and more roses|

Having no REGRETS means making each experience negative or otherwise COUNT as in teaching us a lesson or molding our character/personality into something better. Taking time to look back through old JOURNAL pages can bring insights into growth that we've made and also to obstacles or blocks that are still in our way. Life is an ADVENTURE of choices to be made each day. I CHOOSE to love, forgive and go forward.

It's quite the process to make the nest with many trips required to bring materials in her beak to build a foundation to stick to the chosen spot then add to the nest with found materials including spider webbing which allows the nest to expand with the eggs and babies growing. I love how she sits in the nest and works on the outside of the nest adding height to it and volume.

now I find myself flat on the ground
Splat, didn't see the cement lifted
in the sidewalk as I walked by.
But it saw me hurrying along
and did its thing, tripping me.
Too quickly, I'm down-looking up
at shocked hubby and bystanders.
Who ask...are you okay? Definitely
not, I think but quickly reply...YES!
Except for blood dripping from somewhere
only a small cut on my wrist but...
I hit my arm going down, missed
breaking my fingers, shoulder or hip.
I only have several bruises here
and there now purple, swollen and sore.
I'm FINE, just disgusted with growing
older and forgetting to SLOW DOWN!
