"At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us." ~Albert Schweitzer

The above picture is of a wall hanging in my home......the quote I read many times a day, "Gratitude is the sign of noble souls" and it reminds me day in and day out how thankful I am for my life, my family, my friends.

A funny thing happened on the way to the 'Fishin' hole'.........we heard a whoosh and a buzz above us and all of a sudden we were beamed up on a space ship!! lol!!! Thank you so very much my dear friends for realizing I was missing and that my normal routine of blogging stopped. The current of life just came up behind me and swept me away....tossing me, but manking me stronger and healthier for the ride.

So many things have happened over the last few weeks....we have a new driver in the family, school has started for the older three, along with their sports and extra curricular activities.....
the grapes are ripe and I've been busy collecting them and making jam [I so wish it were wine, but that will have to wait till my life is a little less full].

Emma Sage starts school tomorrow [officially] and she has been up to many amazing and incredible things....all of which I have captured on film [for the most part] and I will share when I get a moment to upload and post.

Again,,,,,,the thread below touched my heart deeply...........I am so honored to have such dear friends. Truly the gift of Down syndrome in my life has brought me more blessings that I could have ever imagined.

Thank you..........
