Last Days of Summer


is drawing to a close. The days are pleasant and the nights are cool.

Art outside by a pond

even in the wind

Thoughts go to squirrels and leaves changing colors

Rain washes away the




school work stalls…need for a break.

The love gals call them “wishies”.

Picking the few left, blow

Nose tickles

Watching the fluff float away….

Their brother in law assured them this works…

stand on an empty soda can with no dings or dents

And look at their urban gracefulness!  No one fell over or down the stairs.


Maybe they are looking for the next thing…

a new beginning, fresh start, more travel???

Our sweet love gals fearlessly ready for the next “thing”!

How about you and kids?




About chinamom3078

I am a woman who loves Jesus who loved me first. Prone to wander and distraction is common for me as I seek to reflect Him in my daily life. I am wife, mom, and grandma who has lived on 3 continents in 26+ apartments, townhouses, military housing, suburbs and now a 200 plus year old farm house. Preparing and hosting meals for the hundreds who have passsed through our home has been a joy and blessing to our family as we listened and shared over meals, coffee, light nights and Bible studies. A rich life! I have reached the age to feel qualifies to be an ”older woman” (as in Titus) even though I feel far from old and have plenty of room to grow each and everyday. And my joy is to teach Bible studies and help train other women to lead well.
