A Time For Giving

The unthankful heart... discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!
Henry Ward Beecher

Please make sure that you visit Susan Between Naps on the Porch for some wonderful tables. Thank you for having a place where we can meet new friends and share some amazing creativity.

No longer forward nor behind
I look in hope or fear;
But, grateful, take the good I find,
The best of now and here.
