In the Now

1.  This lovely fence photo is before the rains came and helped put out the massive ridge fire.   It has been raining for days, and days.  And anyway, I LOVE THE RAIN!

2.  The baby little is graduating from college, 1 year early saving me a boatload of moola, and has already landed a job!  TALK ABOUT BEING BLESSED!

3.  A good friend of mine and her hubby, with their 3 young children packed up their entire house in 24 hours, and moved far away for a his job.  I CAN'T IMAGINE PACKING AN ENTIRE HOUSE IN 24 HOURS...YIKES!

4.  Someone gifted me a gorgeous purple orchid that is thriving on my desk!  I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVEN'T KILLED IT YET! 

5.  This Mother's Day is my oldest daughter's birthday.  How fitting, because she was the first one to make me a MOM!   I CELEBRATE MOTHER'S DAY ON MY CHILDREN'S BIRTHDAYS!  YEP, 3 MOTHER'S DAYS FOR ME!  And on Mother's Day, I honor my own Mother.

Living in the NOW, on this rainy day!

Linking up today with GOOD FENCES  and NANCY for Random 5 .
