Good morning, friends! It has been a good while since I came by here, and I'm starting to miss it. I hope all of you have been doing well and are enjoying your summer. It is hot and humid here, and we are mostly trying our best to stay cool. We are supposed to get some rain on Monday (Yipee!) and we are looking forward to it.
I used to do something called Saturday Smile on my blog, and I was thinking about it this morning. I shared a sweet picture and told what it meant to me. The little canister in the picture above belonged to my grandmother. She kept it on the counter in her kitchen and kept bags of tea inside of it. I always think of her when I see it--and it brings a big smile to my face.
I have so many things to smile about! Sure, things don't always go smoothly and there are little (and sometimes big) 'bumps' along the way, but God is ALWAYS good and I thank Him for all my blessings.
My garden is not doing so well this year, but a lot of people have been giving us tomatoes and cucumbers, so we are able to have good, homegrown salads with our meals. I have a few extra tomatoes today, and I'm planning on freezing them to add to soups this winter. I always love a little 'taste' of summer in the wintertime!
Please do your best to stay cool and drop by and say 'howdy' when you can.
