Mother's Day Vignette.....

Dearest Readers,


As Mother's Day is fast approaching I though I would share my entryway vignette.....







I must admit that this is a very bittersweet holiday for me, as both my own Mother and Mother-in-Love passed away long ago. But God blessed me with many loving "Mothers" who thoughtfully stood in their places and spoke words of kindness and wisdom throughout the years.


(I know some of you, through losses of your own, find this day to be a difficult one....please know that you are in my prayers.)


The journey of raising my own children has been the most delightful and beautiful adventure I could have ever hoped to enjoy....and I am ever grateful. Thank you Dearest God!


So to all Mothers, by birth or by heart, I send you my love....


Yours so kindredly,


Shan

And the Sun is Shining.....

Dearest Readers,


It is such a lovely day here at Honey Hill Farm...the sun is shining, sending dappled light through my lace covered windows.  I have spaghetti sauce simmering on the stove, its wonderful aroma filling the house. 


Everything about my day is made just that much more splendid because I am finally feeling well after such a lengthy illness.  I ended up having to endure a third round of antibiotics and several weeks of recovery.


I put my blog on hold while I (a little bit at a time) put my house in order, restocked my pantry and larder and regained my vim and vigor.



I am ever so grateful to all my dear friends that have sent me loving thoughts....medicine for my soul...thank you. I am looking forward to posting regularly and catching-up with each of you.


I hope your day is filled with the sparkle of sunshine no matter where you are.


Yours kindredly,


Shan
