Around The Yard Today

Hello Sweet Friends

It is so humbling to know
That you have been taking the time to pray
For myself and my son

And I am thrilled to report
That we are both doing much better

The doors have been open
In my small little home
Enjoying the best this season has to offer

Walking around the neighborhood
And my own yard today
I took a few quick photos

It doesn't matter what the calendar says
Spring in alive and blooming in Arizona

The day my Red Bottle Brush Blooms
Makes me smile

I know many of you are still
Cuddling up in blankets and sitting near the fireplace
You may be drinking hot cocoa
Or putting your warm and comfy robe and slippers on
I pray you are safe and not being threatened
By storms and fierce weather

This is our 'happy' weather time
Soon enough we will be seeking
Any form of shade and shelter
From our 110-120 degree temps

So for Today
I am grateful for flowers that are beginning to bloom
Open doors
Breezes that send the fragrance of blossoms
Wafting through the house
And Your Prayers

May YOU and Yours
Live in God's Blessings

Today I'm Joining
Poofing The Pillows

  1. Oh my goodness! These pics are beautiful. I am glad for you and your son to be doing better. That's wonderful.

  2. Beautiful photos. Today, I am grateful for a sweet Christian friend like you. Praying constantly for you and your family.


  3. Cindy, this is so sweet and heartfelt. It's so comforting to know that others will pray for you when you reach out or share.

    I love that you truly have some burdens but you always have a positive attitude.

    Sending you hugs and thanks for sharing this at Thoughts of Home on Thursday.

  4. Hi Cindy, I am so glad to hear that you and Madi are doing better. God answers prayers and is so good. Your garden is beautiful with the first flowers of spring. Wishing you a peaceful and relaxing weekend ahead. Blessings to you my friend. xo

  5. Pretty photos, Cindy. I'm happy for you both. xoox Su

  6. Your blossoms are so pretty and refreshing, sweet Cindy. We have been enjoying temperatures in the 50's here in the mountains which is rather unsual, but I am not complaining {{smiles}}

    Have a wonderful weekend! Love, hugs, and prayers.

  7. I have not seen a bottle brush in years! I am glad to hear happiness in your post. And don't forget to keep giving and getting hugs.

  8. What lovely photos! It is rather chilly here in s.e. FL this week. I'm enjoying it though and working outside, summer's heat and humidity will be here all too soon.

    Glad to hear you both are doing better that is great news.

    Love, hugs & continued prayers ~ FlowerLady

  10. Cindy, I love opening the windows and doors to air out house after the winter. I love your pretty flowers. I think of you and your family, praying thinks work out like God wants. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  11. Hi Cindy. Love your header pic. Quite appropriate for February. I bet you are really enjoying the lovely weather before you have to be cranking up those AC's..Happy Weekend..Judy

  12. Happy to hear things are better :) I can't wait to open my windows and let in the clean, fresh air. I bought myself a flowering plant today! May your weekend be blessed!

  13. A very sweet post. I'm glad you have beautiful weather to enjoy, Cindy and that you're both doing better. Hugs, Nancy

  14. Oh yes! Enjoy those beauties!! Spring time in AZ is simply glorious. It has been beautiful here the last few days. Got to spend some time in the yard doing spring cleaning. Funny how it rejuvenates my soul. Can't wait till we have blooms! Thanks for sharing with SYC. Happy to hear a positive report about you and your son.

  15. Dear Cindy, We are having a beautiful spring like day today-sunshine, blue skies and 61 degrees which is heavenly. I am teased but this and wishing we have an early spring, but chances are we will have snow at some point. So thankful that the flours are encouraging you as well as getting outside. Sending big hug with love to you today.

  16. Cindy that you for the pretty bits of happiness. I am a bit late in visiting due to it being college finals week for me but I am so very happy you joined Thought of Home on Thursday and shared this delightful gem.

  17. With co-hosting the party, I am quite behind and did not know that you and your son were ill. I hope everything is okay now.

    It is lovely to have the doors and windows open, but we are behind last year in our water levels and last year was bad. I am hoping that March gives us rain and lots of it.

    Enjoy your days in the yard - are you using the pool yet?

    Thanks for sharing at SYC.

  18. Beautiful pictures! I am so jealous, we have about 2 more weeks of winter before Spring officially hits us. It's literally snowing here in the midwest while I type this. So excuse me if I scroll back up and daydream that I am napping in YOUR yard, not mine. :-)


Hi Friend, I read and cherish every single comment you leave! You bring Joy to my heart! Blessings, Cindy
