A tisket, A tasket a new Spring basket!
Proof the Lord works in mysterious ways - when the dogs are running in with wet muddy feet - I don't care! Spring is in the air!
We still do not have any buds on the trees, only in a jar ;) , I saw some photos a friend posted and giggled- I had drawn the day before he same little buds! It is unanimous Spring is in the air everywhere!
For my birthday a good friend brought me a basket of fruit, when done I looked at the basket and thought now what- garden? The friend who gave it to me - I love her! LOL
I look at the basket and think of Lucy ;) A neighbour, we have photos of Storm and her son on my kitchen floor as infants, later dancing in the living room with a towel - they were about 7, photos of them at he CN tower a bit older and now both young men - each one makes my heart flutter faster - both good men. Lucy & her family moved finally a couple of years ago and when she did I cried. lol
The 'day' Storm was finally diagnosed many years ago, the guys left for a 'cub extravaganza' for the weekend. I was left home alone to process what we had just been told - "your son has a progressive to terminal bone disease, a rare orphan disease, and probably won't live past 12...", Lucy showed up at my door.
My face swollen from tears - she was the first person I told.
She went home and came back with a lasagna.
It was more than that, of everyone I personally know, IMO Lucy has the strongest faith in God. From that second on she has prayed for us. Enough said.
* not that my other friends do not - lol - but Lucy makes it clear and always has, I have admired her strength & dedication.
Over the years- I have been so blessed to have her as a friend, her family as friends. Our life richer because they are in it. When she showed up with my basket- I was floored she even remembered, so how could I just toss it - It's not just a basket.
I made it into a reminder for my front door - Spring is here and You are loved!
All that see this basket know it was given with LOVE and then created into this welcome with even more love!
NOW that you have looked at it - know we send love out to you too!
Spring is here! Celebrate!
Turn off FB and get your face looking out the window!
Below are photos of my our basket! xox
Have Faith! <><
Thank you to my handsome son who takes me and follows me patiently around the dollar store! LOL
