As with each week in the past, I included a personal reflection, a list of items for which I'm grateful, and images of things that represent the week.
On the left page, there is
=> a sun to represent the high temperatures once again.
=> a hummingbird to remind me of the ones that are visiting the feeder each day along with the butterflies who drink from the same feeder.
=> a purple flower to represent the little flower bed by the back door that is in full bloom with violet, magenta, orange, and gold flowers.
On the right page, there is an image of an angel. I chose this handmade paper cast because a couple of times this past week my mom has shared how she feels like my dad is around us, and how he makes his presence known.
When Sophia, Olivia, my mom, and I took a trip to southeastern Minnesota this past weekend, she shared many memories of trips she and dad took; how they delivered quilts to Rushford after the town was flooded; and experiences they shared all the way back to the 1960s. It was an emotionally-healing and comforting time for her. For all of us, it was a memorable and enjoyable trip.
