May Ends and June Begins ~ Savoring the Moments

May was filled with more stress than I have experienced in a very long time. But God is still on the throne, and out of the thick clouds of gray, occasional rays of sunlight peeked through.
Miss Audrey was among the brightest of rays. Every chance I get, I soak up these fleeting moments of time.
Mother's Day weekend was lovely. I visited  my mother on Saturday and spent Sunday with my only child and grandchild.
Dear Dad celebrated another birthday. I am grateful for the sound of his voice in my life.
We celebrated Memorial Day with family members at my daughter's beautiful apartment. Guess who kept us laughing.
My niece turned 30. It seems impossible. I treasure the memories we share and am proud of the woman she has become.
I did a little gardening. Nothing big, but digging in the dirt among God's unique creation always soothes my soul.

I found an accent table at the antique mall that filled a spot I had been seeking to fill for a while. It wasn't exactly what I had envisioned, but it is filling the spot just the same.

And Mom and Dad celebrated  65 years of marriage. Wow. I'm so grateful they stayed together when times were hard. Loving each other till death is the best gift they could ever give to their three daughters.

Until next time, my blogging friends, I'm finding silver linings behind every cloud and counting my blessings. ♦


  1. I always enjoy your posts, Gayle...what sweet pics of your family!

  2. I have decided to look up the definition for "savor" when I finish this comment. Oh, I know what it means in my head. I just want to read the definition and try to get the concept into my heart so I slow down and really start to SAVOR. I feel as if my life is rushing by me like a marathon runner.

    Loved your moments, and my how pretty Audrey's hair is!!! It has a beautiful shine to it.
