Four Leaf Green, I Needed That, Farewell and I Mean That

1. She found a four leaf clover on St. Patrick's Day. How lucky is that!
2. Sunday morning at church, hearing a great sermon that puts everything back into the right perspective.
3. A bittersweet day. Chelsea and Chad's last Sunday visit for quite a while. I am thankful for these years we've had them close by. They bring fun and joy wherever they go and there will be some lucky people in Denver should they get to know them. Oh goodness, this is going to be hard.
3a. Church friends combine resources to send them off with snacks and money for the road. It warms my heart to see others blessing my children this way.


  1. Sure will be hard, Leonora. :(

    It was hard enough for me when I was away from the kids for my ten-day residency. And that was a drive away. If you haven't already tried it, Skype is helpful. It was for me, anyway--still hard but at least you can see one another while your having a conversation. And they can show you around their new digs, too. :)

  2. I'm sorry your children are moving. I know how hard it is to be away from family. I hope they make great friends in Denver, and that you all can visit often.

    A great sermon is always wonderful on a Sunday, but I could use one right now....;-)

  3. My Virginia sister's middle child lives all the way across the country, too. It's hard, but when she comes back to visit, she brings sparkle and joy to their home. It will be that way for you, too, sounds like.

  4. I'm with you in spirit. Our one son is in China, the other with the grand babies is a good 7 hour drive. Skype, texting and online chat keep up close. xo
