Dessert Anyone?

I was busy organizing a bunch of my vintage jewelry stash , so I thought I would take a photo of some of my treasures in my pretty pink pedestal dish, just like a dessert is served up ! Bling , treasures, past memories, and pretties , all in one !! The little rhinestone pin in the center of a lady is one of my mothers, she use to also make jewelry when I was small and this is one of the pieces left from that , missing a stone , but is still a treasure !

So as I was busy sorting through everything , the thoughts of our real treasures in life! Our families and friends, little moments that will forever be with us, some good and some bad, yet they all make up life and tell a story. As I talked to a friend this morning she is with a nephew that is only 33 years young and on his dying bed. She is staying with his mother to be there as a help as she goes through this extremely hard thing life hands out.I know that he Will be in the arms of Jesus when it is his time which is a comfort.

Having much to be thankful for , children, grandchildren , friends and health. The ability to create and also the ability to also be in touch with others not possible years ago such as YOU ! It is wonderful to be able to be in touch with others that also have a love to create !

So this being said ..... have a wonderful day , be blessed and be thankful !!!

Yes, how blessed we are I remind myself of it daily. Yes we all have some very hard situations to handle and cope with, thats when we need to stop and appreciate even "THE LITTLE THINGS"
What a wonderful Blog you have (:

I just wrote a little post about this on a mom blog recently. I have to remind myself daily, in the hustle and bustle of life and details that drive me crazy, that really the only thing that matters is that my family is healthy. Your bling is certainly a treasure and a great metaphor for the precious things we have in life.
