Falling on the Sun Porch

Hello, Dear Ones.
I want to thank you again for your thoughts and prayers for our family.
Mother is holding steady and God will take her home when He's ready.
I have to admit, I've just been in limbo for the last couple of weeks.
I just couldn't do anything, couldn't get busy cleaning my house much less trying to be creative to blog. I just sat in my chair and pinned and pinned from Pinterest.

This was not good. I prayed and asked God to help me get going with life and He's helping me get back into a routine. I visit Mother two times each day but I can come home now and do what I need to. I've missed you, I've missed blogging. What a huge part of my life my little blog has become.

So I thought I would begin to show you a little Falling around at my house.
Here's my little sun porch all Falled up!


Just simple little changes here.
That flower in the left hand corner needs to be repotted. It looks so funny.

Simple.
And more simple.
Well, Mr. Rooster lamp does not want me to call him 'simple'.


Very simple Falling on the Finn.

I made a little Fall arrangement in my tiny little tool box which fit perfectly on the little ledge of the Finn.
My little Mother gave me this little farmer couple over 30 years ago.

Well, there you have my little sun porch Falled up.
 You've really kept me going these past weeks and
I really do love you all and appreciate your comments to me.

You are all a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~ 

Grateful

I've got a roof over my head
I've got a warm place to sleep
Some nights I lie awake counting gifts
Instead of counting sheep

I've got a heart that can hold love
I've got a mind that can think
There may be times when I lose the light
And let my spirits sink
But I can't stay depressed
When I remeber how I'm blessed

Grateful, grateful
Truly grateful I am
Grateful, grateful
Truly blessed
And duly grateful

In a city of strangers
I've got a family of friends
No matter what rocks and brambles fill the way
I know that they will stay until the end

I feel a hand holding my hand
It's not a hand you can see
But on the road to the promised land
This hand will shepherd me
Through delight and despair
Holding tight and always there

Grateful, grateful
Truly grateful I am
Grateful, grateful
Truly blessed
And duly grateful

It's not that I don't want a lot
Or hope for more, or dream of more
But giving thanks for what I've got
Makes me so much happier than keeping score

In a world that can bring pain
I will still take each chance
For I believe that whatever the terrain
Our feet can learn to dance
Whatever stone life may sling
We can moan or we can sing

Grateful, grateful
Truly grateful I am
Grateful, grateful
Truly blessed
And duly grateful
