there is magic

The Dells Mill in Augusta, Wisconsin is the most 
photographed Mill in the U.S.
One look & the reason is obvious, you
just can't take a bad picture of this beautiful setting.

We are lucky to live just about 5 minutes from this 
amazing place.

While there on Saturday, I was reminded of this change in seasons.
When there is more "next" then "last".
When spring magically arrives.

Over the years I have collected lots of vintage holiday decorations.
I especially adore the detail in German finds like 
these papier-mâché Easter eggs.

And do not even get me started on vintage waxed Easter grass!

I have come to believe that the greatest character trait is kindness.
It is compassion & help & support & empathy all packaged with a simple bow.
But what a gift it is.  Indeed.

For 6 years, we have found an anonymous gift left at our roadside mailbox to mark
the return of spring.  This year, a robin's nest was tucked into the egg basket on our
mailbox with one sweet lettered egg that said, "spring".  I sense that I may know
the giver from my Barn Sale days...and that she travels from far on a journey homeward.
This tender act of kindness truly touches my heart.  Thank you! 💚

Lucy Lily & Daisy Grace

Lucy Lily

All of our male animals share the middle name, Michael.
But not our girls.

Lucy & Daisy are entering their 4th year of 
blessing our lives. They are our inside kittens.

I wrote this to my Lori, the middle sister, on the eve of my 60th birthday in June, 2018.  Lori passed away in November, 2018 at the young age of 62:

Even now, as I ready for a milestone birthday, I still feel the youngest of three sisters - the baby.  I always know my Lori & my Randi will be there - my "angels having charge of me".  I always have felt so lucky because I had these girls - then women - to admire and to claim as mine.  "Sisters" - I say that word with pride.  If mom would have known there would be three of us - you would have been "Hope".  Feels only right. You are most certainly my cup half full. So feel my pride, my hope, my charity of faith.

Tomorrow we will send you off my dear sweet sister.  Skyward.
My heart will always hold you. 💙 xxoo
