Full of Grace

I live in an area with a dutch heritage and our public parks now look like this.




Peachie, who graduates this week, landed a job in the cardiac unit of my favorite hospital.  A real job. In her field.  Yay!


We went to the lake house on Saturday expecting to find lots of problems from the extreme winter weather but was pleasantly surprised to find minimal damage.  

Beaner very generously took us here for Mother’s Day brunch.  Yes,  I often suffer an embarrassment of riches.

    1. Sometimes I truly am embarrassed/uncomfortable to have so much when others have so little. But this was a gift so I graciously accepted. And enjoyed.

      I will be looking forward to meeting you.

  2. Happy belated Mother's Day to you and Martha! You must both be so proud.

    Is that Mohonk? I have always wanted to go there!

    1. Yes, it is Mohonk. I highly recommend it, and bring your hiking shoes. They have dozens of stunning trails.

  3. What a relief for Peachie -- and her moms! A job in your field is not always easy to find.
    Love the Mother's Day lunch location. How gorgeous. And, what a well-raised daughter!
    Happy for you that the lake house held up so well through the horrible winter. Otherwise, you would be busy instead of relaxing!
    Love the tulips!

    1. I think this is the first year that I have not spent Spring at the lake doing some kind of repair/upgrade. Truth be told, I kind of miss it. You know I have to keep my hands busy to be happy.

  4. I often think the same things. One night as I lay in bed, so wiped out from chemo, I thought to myself that I have this nice warm, soft bed. I have a partner who waits on me hand and foot. I have medication. I am a lucky person.
