15 Little Things I Love

Dirty feet – because it means I have been in my garden

Daylilies – each blossom a unique work of art

The faithful love of a husband – a big thing, really

Hugs from a grandchild – there is nothing quite like a child’s embrace

Birdhouses – caring for God’s creation and a blessed time of crafting with my grandkids

Birthday Cakes – a sweet celebration of another year of life and growth

My Bible – for the life change that happens with time spent within its pages

Rain – for watering the earth and for leaving glittering jewels in the garden

Zinnias – God’s colorful stage for the flutter of butterfly dances

Green – for the way its various shades and hues frame all of the other colors of God’s creation.

Hydrangeas – for the serene beauty they bring to my garden

Peanut butter silk pie (from Perkins) – a whole day’s worth of calories rolled into once slice of my favorite date night dessert.

Colored pencils – because they remind me of my mother

My painted garden chairs – because they make me think about the love of the artistic grandgirls who painted them

Old photos – for the stories they tell

I love sharing about my barefoot gardening adventures, hence my blogger name. As I write, some of my other passions might spill out -- like fun with grandkids, baking and sewing endeavors, what I'm studying in Scripture, and the like. My readers will notice that one of the primary things I write about is Alzheimer's. May what I write be an encouragement to anyone who is a caregiver for someone they love with memory loss.
