Scenes from a Blessed Life ~ The Gifts of May

June caught me by surprise, but time waits for no one; the first month of summer is here. Before I embrace it fully, I want to take a look back at some of May's blessings. I think it's important to pause in our busy lives and name the gifts that have been given to us.

Here are just a few gifts that the month of May brought to me:

An outing to watch our Astros play at Minute Maid Park is always a treat. The fact that they won on this night made it even better.

Cupcake met her Aunt Nette for the first time in May. They had an instant connection.

One weekend, while visiting with twin sister, I sat on the couch and watched the sun work it's magic through her living room. It had been a rainy week and the sight of it there was a balm to my spirit.

While celebrating a family birthday last week, I looked across the table and captured this fleeting moment in time.

Late one evening, after a particularly long day, we gathered around cupcake in her little swing and found joy in small things, which really are the big things.

Until next time, sweet friends, may the days of June find you well and filled. As always, thanks for keeping me company here.



  1. Isn't it wonderful to just stop and think of all of the things we have to be grateful for? So many things that we take for granted each and every day. That baby is just precious!!


  2. Oh my goodness, that little cupcake is a doll! Those moments with them are so special, aren't they. What a joy!

  3. What a beautiful May you have had....a blessed little baby and a sweet sister to share your life with. Some really wonderful moments of life. xo Diana

    I hope it will be just as beautiful, my friend.
    And that precious baby?!
