Sharing the joy and tea with ruth and friends.




Having........my Lemon Zinger tea in my white and pink china cup.

Feeling.........full of joy thinking of all the work we did to get ready for the father's day celebration at our house. Yes it was planning and cooking and cleaning the yard and wondering if it would rain but being with all the loved ones made it all worth while.

Thinking...........how blessed we all are to have each other.


Watching these grands in the swing enjoying each other made the cleaning and scrubbing, to rid the patio of all the evidence of the many birds, worthwhile.





"Of course if you like your kids, if you love them from the moment they begin, you yourself begin all over again, in them, with them, and so there is something more to the world again."

William Saroyan


Photographs are such a wonderful thing to remind and enable us to relive the most joyful times in our lives.
For me
The greatest JOY is time with family.





Linking up with
Meri here at Share the Joy



and Ruth at Tea Talk 


Get out there and catch the JOY GERM.

I was admiring the white curtains near the wooden swing when I noticed your grandson has a mohawk. Egads. That must have taken a while to get used to. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Trenton is a foster child that our daughter has. When he visits with his real family they do things like get him a mohawk to aggravate my daughter. My daughter will only allow it in the summer.
