Mondays Are Fun

I was reading an article about the latest Royal Wedding. Than I found this kitty dressed for tea time with the Queen. I had to share it with Sandee and everyone at Aw....Mondays. If Monday's are tough, these sweet shares should make you smile. I am hoping my Kentucky Derby hat arrives before the big Derby Day. I nearly forgot to order one. I will share it next weekend. This pillbox style hat is quite chic in lavender.
These dress up cats had me cracking me. This Captain America is a real live hero. Saving natnip across the USA. Maybe Blue Monday will apreciate the feline humor too. Stop in for all your blues.
This small boy has had a rough couple of days. Cleared of any life changing and difficult one in a million aliments, he isn't quite sure someone isn't going to poke or prod him once more. He is a precious boy and we are so grateful for all the prayer he received during these past two months. If I could eradicate all the horrible childhood illnesses with a magic wand I would do it! I do not like to see children suffer. It truly break my heart. I don't mean to sound selfish, but I am very grateful this grandboy is healthy and growing so quickly. I pray each day for his life, I want him to be a happy child. I will always reach for God.

Blaise Pascal was a child prodigy. As a child myself I always found stories of him to be delightful and even as a child I found his faith to be extraordinaire. I admired his intellect in Mathematics and during the difficult days while waiting for a diagnosis for our little grandbaby I kept remembering these words, attributed to Blaise Pascal:
My faith has helped me more than anything else in this world filled with uncertainties. I am grateful each day that I know God and share such a personal relationship with Jesus.
McGuffy's Reader asks us to share some kindness each Monday or something postive. I thought another quote attributed to Blaise Pascal was on point,
Years ago Roseann Barr did a comedy routine where she called herself a "Domestic Goddess". My kids were small back then and I liked the sound of that. It sounded so glamours instead of being a housewife or someone's mother or wife. God bless Roseann ,she got me through some difficult days with that goddess routine. Thanks Love is...for the memory and reminder of being a domestic goddess
Telling my age, (chuckling) but I remember singing this catchy little song when I was a kid. As a young mother with mountains of laundry, I learned to balance my prayerful time with God while I sorted laundry and washed and dried our clothes. Something I took from Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of Billy Graham. She said when her own children were small, she found the best personal moments she could share with God were during her laundry chores. I love doing laundry to this very day.
Oh Maxine, a long time ago savings and loan businesses would give you small household appliances for opening an account with them. When I was married my mother gave me an iron. I told my mother it was written in my marriage vows that I did not have to participate in such an activity. She gave me the iron anyway.
Another week is upon us. I hope your's is simply amazing.

Oh Anne ... where have I been that I missed an opportunity to pray for your sweet Brody? How it hurts our hearts when the smallest can't tell us what's wrong. Please give him an extra hug from me?

That Captain America kitty cracks me up! Doesn't it feel delicious to laugh?

Have a most blessed day, dear friend!

Hope your little one is on the mend and soon "emulating" Blaise!

Your little grandbaby is darling. I hope he's feeling better now. Maxine has the right idea. I'm wrinkled, so do I really need to iron the wrinkles out of my clothes? hahaha. You have a super day, hugs, Edna B.
