I have a huge to-do list...do you? Wanna come over and help me? :) I think this photo lists the more important things to focus on. I know many are preparing for Easter ~ are we focusing on the real reason for the celebration? Sometimes I think the festivities and the food, decor, Easter egg hunts and having guests overshadows the most holy occasion of Christianity. Pause and remember...
I went to my eye Dr. yesterday and had plugs done again. If you're not aware of this procedure, it's absolutely wonderful! I have very dry eyes ~ somewhat due to having had cataract surgery plus horrific allergies. This allows your eyes to make natural tears and is an amazing relief!
I also had to take my car in due to a continuing leak of one tire. They did everything under the sun as far as testing, however, nothing found! Such a relief ~ They always wash my car when I take it in and wow, did it ever need it! Sprinkles of rain and then the dust and horrible pollen created a disgusting mess. On a black car, that doesn't bode well. Don't you think your car drives better when it's clean...and when the gas tank is full? I kinda think it's saying "Thank you!" :)
Something I feel led to mention ~ I've seen so many snarky, snippy, grumpy comments on blogs recently. So shocking! Of course, we're not all going to have the same tastes or decorating preferences. So what if TexasSuzieQ (fake name) loves all white and I prefer a ton of color? That's really ok! I honestly think TexasSuzieQ is extremely talented and has great taste in her decor. I just can't wrap my head around someone replying, "Why did you buy that in green, use that flooring, put that rug there? It looks horrible!" Lots of similar comments and, like I said, I just can't understand it nor is it ok. IMHO, if you don't have anything nice to say, move on...don't comment! Didn't most of our Moms teach us that it's better to say nothing than to say something ugly?
Kindness does matter!
I'm making a little headway in my efforts to spring clean, organize and clear the clutter. It's very frustrating that I'm a bit limited due to my back problems but a little is worth a lot!
Not sure if you've ever seen something like the info below re: Target. Of course, it could apply to many retailers I'm sure.
Have you planted flowers yet? I think it's about time to do that here in Texas. I would absolutely LOVE to have my balcony look very much like this! So colorful, lush and happy ~ brings on a "feel good" moment instantly!
I must stop and get busy! It's a gorgeous day here in North Central Texas ~ sunshine and lovely temps. I think it's supposed to be in the high 70's today. IF you've made it this far, thank you so much for stopping by! I absolutely love when folks take the time to visit and leave a comment. Have a wonder*filled week!

A friend pointed me to this quote today and I had to share it. It’s such a great reminder of God’s Love for His children and the true path to Him. It’s nothing we can earn or achieve; it’s His Gift of Grace. All that is required of us is to trust and believe in Him.
Justice is getting what you deserve. Mercy is not getting what you deserve. Grace is getting what you don’t deserve.

Spring has sprung! Well, not so much here although we are having some typical spring rains and thunderstorms. I had to have a jacket today. Now, when it gets to 100 - 110 remind me of this! :)
