Happy Monday

Good Morning dear friends,  I hope you had a delightful weekend filled with smiles, laughter and joy.  My heart goes out to those on the east coast and many are lifting you up in prayer. 
Our weekend was one of relaxed days and fun times; we met some friends that we were close to when our girls were toddlers and whom we haven't seen in 28 yrs. What a fun evening we had, catching up on our adult children and sharing life.  It amazes me that there were so many things I didn't know about this couple; we used to trade babysitting for weekends away-one month it would be their turn to go away and the next month would be our turn.  One year we even traded a week away, but as I recall I had to get home to my babies by day 5.  It was a wonderful arrangement that only lasted a couple of years and then they moved to our beautiful Colorado. I am hoping that our reunion becomes a rekindling of our friendship. 
Sunday was a very laid back day and I can honestly say I don't think I accomplished much besides laundry.
Hubby is off golfing this morning so I'm not sure what I'll do today, maybe go offer to hold some sick grandbabies.
The most interesting thing here is that we had rain during the night-I mean it poured.  So unusual for this time of year. 
Have a great day and no matter what the weather, find something to give thanks for.
Hugs, Noreen


  1. Good morning Noreen! Glad you had a good week-end. We too have some friends who played a HUGE role in our lives when we were all young, that we have recently re-connected with it. It is wonderful after all these years. Hope yours continues on now too. The weather at Mel's was crazy compared to California. We had a couple of quick small thunderstorms but things are sooo dry and bad there. Hope you have a good day my friend. HUGS, Debbie

  2. Nice Noreen. Hope the grands feel better soon!

  3. It is nice to renew friendships from the past.
    I am sure your children & grandchildren would enjoy the time spent with them. Half of my grandchildren live by me...we watch them around 3 times a week while their parents work.
    About the rain....I have asked many people to pray for rain to help put out the forest fires here(God provided some good rain this morning)...and more many be coming! Some prayers spilled over your way. 8~)
    Take care,

  4. I so enjoyed catching up with your blog tonight,
    It has been just too busy at my house.
