Do you sometimes look around you and feel absolutely overwhelmed with blessings?

I do, especially at this time of year when everything's abloom and growing, and suddenly there's that special day again... Mother's Day. My husband & sons always make it special and I smile (and maybe cry a little, too) thinking what a gift it was to have a wise and kind woman for a mom.

Every day is a good day to pause and count your blessings.

Chickens in a brand new homemade coop.

A garden crammed with birds and flowers in every square inch...

Blueberries and forget-me-nots, lilacs and bleeding heart and strawberry and even the cheerful dandelion!
