Celebrate the Small Things: Make the World Stop!

Ever feel like you just wanted to stop the world and just get off the ride it's spinning you around on? I do. And I did.

I needed a break from the Israeli/Gaza conflict, the ISIS issue, the Ebola crisis, and America's border problems. There are so many things going on. All so interconnected. And all a danger to us.

So I went to my younger daughter's house and spent time with her and my new grandson this week.

No matter what evil is thrown at us, there is always something to celebrate.

Hope everyone has something good to celebrate despite what's happening on planet earth. Just know God is watching and is in control.

Have a happy weekend and a happy Shabbats, if you practice!

Hugs and chocolate, all!

  6. The first week is the hardest but the most rewarding. They are so tiny and so perfect little bundles. Plus they have the best new baby smell at the back of their necks.
    I happy you took some time to cuddle this perfect little bundle of love.

  8. He is gorgeous, and I'm sure took your mind off the more dreadful news. It's good to leave to bad behind and focus on the good.

    1. Oh yes... I need to stop watching CNN. But my daughter lives in Israel as does remnants of my hubby's family and a handful of our friends.
