Apple pie is simply the most wonderful feel good food on the planet. I can resist almost any desert except warm apple pie. My sister-in-law actually traveled from Wisconsin to Texas just to have my homemade apple pie that’s just like my mother used to make. The wine shown in the picture, The Show, is a Cabernet Sauvignon that the wine steward at Whole Foods Plano, said was one of their best selling Cabs. Looking at the cowboy on the label reminds me that this is not my first #ThanksgivingFeast rodeo. 🙂
Babies, children and their laughterChildren bring joy to our lives. This little guy, my grandson has Down Syndrome. He has taught me more about love than I ever thought was possible. He never sits still and is a cross between “Dennis the Menace and an Angel.” When his sister was three his daddy said it was like living with a couple of racoons, that’s how much mischief these two could get into! When I asked him to just come to the garden for his picture I never thought he would sit still for his picture. He truly must be watching his sisters because I did not pose him this way! When he struck this pose I nearly fainted, lol! That’s what makes this picture in the rose garden next to ‘Europeana’ all the more special. He is my heart. Anyone that sees a child and a puppy together know what joy is.
“Even a stone, and more easily a flower or a bird, could show you the way back to God, to the Source, to yourself. When you look at it or hold it & let it be without imposing a word of mental label on it, a sense of awe, of wonder, arises within you. Its essence silently communicates itself to you and reflects your own essence back to you.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
