I took these photos yesterday. It was a rainy dreary day and I asked Elizabeth if she would blow some bubbles for me from this huge bubble container she had gotten as a gag gift from her boss. She said sure. So we went out in the driveway and she blew bubbles and I am snapped photos. It was fun.. The beauty of the bubbles amazes me. I love to see the different colors that each one has. Elizabeth had a good time blowing them. It reminded us of all the times I spent on the porch with the kids when they were little blowing bubbles with them.

It isn't the big things that kids or people remember. We remember moments not days.

It the silly fun times we take out of our dreary days that remain.
I have a couple of quotes I want to share with you.

The ordinary acts we practice everyday at home are of more importance to the soul than their Simplicity might suggest. Thomas Moore
Irish Poet {1779-1852}

"Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless." Mother Teresa

A gentle word, Like Summer rain, may soothe some heart and banish pain. What joy or sadness often springs from just the simple little things. Willa Hoey

I carry this card in my pocket everywhere.

Prayer for Peace

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace

Where there is hatred...let me sow love

Where there is injury...pardon

Where there is

Where there is despair...hope

Where there is darkness...light

Where there is

Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek

to be to console,

to be to understand

to be to love,


it is in giving....that we receive

it is in pardoning, that we are pardoned

it is in dying....that we are born to eternal life.

I say a little prayer for all of you tonight that no matter what you are going through that God will help you.

Sending love to all....

Dear Nita,

I have been praying for you to have some "Nita" time in the midst of all that has been going on. I can't think of anything more joyful than bubbles with your daughter right now. I hope it refreshed your souls! I see Gods promise even in the rainbows the bubbles display. He is in everything we do and I am so thankful. The bubble resting in the flower reminds me of how fragile life is, and it is carried by the most gentle and loving Hands of our Father. Beautiful quotes too. Bless you today dear friend. Take more "Nita" time, it is beautiful and refreshing to see:)

Love and Big Hugs, Laurie in Ca.

Pam, Life is so fragile... The bubble resting on the ground is resting on a rose bush. The thorns look like they are holding the bubble up. I thought that was very neat.
Sending you warm thoughts and love, Nita

Susan, I am so glad you liked the photos. I like the gold one in the first shot. The way it is the only golden one surrounded by the blue ones.
Sending you love, Nita
