For more favorite things go over to Suzanne's Living To Tell The Story

1. FAMILY! You know there is really nothing quite like family. I enjoyed cousins coming even if it was for the death of a loved one. My Mama is always here at just the right time helping me with all the preparations. Nick my oldest son, I couldn't have done it all without him. I miss drinking coffee with him on the porch in the mornings.

2. A GOOD CUP OF COFFEE! Nothing Like it! BUT, I am just about out of my Dunkin Donut coffee. I use whole bean and I cant find it anymore at my local stores. Of a matter of fact, I'm having trouble finding ANY WHOLE BEAN COFFEE!

3. SUNRISES ON MY FRONT PORCH! The weather has been so ugly here for so long. I did get one great sunrise this week! Thank you Lord!

4. A GOOD DEVOTIONAL. I have been reading "Streams in the Desert" this year and recently was loaned a book called "Walking With God" that is great as a devotional too.

5. A HEALTHY HUSBAND! Danny has been sickly for a year but has finished his treatment (something I want to post about sometime but need his permission first). The most important thing is he is much better now. I see him doing things that he hasn't been able to do for a year. God is good! All the time! God is good!!!

This is my first Friday Fav Five but I have always enjoyed Jen. I found a new blog in the process!

It seems our life around here as been in a whirl wind. Danny lost a dear uncle and just a few days later, I lost a precious aunt. That is life and death. The loss of these two wonderful people have left Danny and I with holes.

Going to viewings and funerals...well you just have to do it. Having two deaths in a week is just too much though.

Danny's oldest granddaughter graduated from high school Friday night and his niece graduates Saturday. Boy we have kept the roads hot!!! But that is life...good life!

We celebrated Memorial Day weekend with a service for my aunt. Everyone came here for a nice big gathering. The food was unreal!! I hope this doesn't sound disrespectful but you know it is a Southern thing to eat and eat good when there is a death. We had a wonderful time socializing with family that lives far off. We had folks come from Florida, Tennessee, Alabama, and from here in good old Georgia. My aunt would have been proud. Death is life.

I am hoping for some normalcy. Danny & I are desperate for some!

I'm leaving you with a picture of the Little Package and my friend Dr. Jones. Poor girl keeps getting ear infections. Life!

Spring is fading into the HOT GEORGIA SUMMER!

Life is busy. Full of all kinds of things. Somethings I enjoy and some I do not...but life is full. I have been to two family reunions recently. Both full of good food, fun and family.

Things are growing here like crazy. I noticed this morning that the field was full of yellow dandelions.

I have spent some beautiful mornings out on my front porch. The air is still cool in the mornings. I am so thankful for my home place. It is a true sanctuary for me. I see God every where I look.

It is well with my soul!
