A Year of Tea Pots


Life is resembling normalcy here again and with that brings
some free time to blog!  I thought I'd share these DARLING mini teapots that my Mother-in-Law gave me a couple of years ago. I display them on my curio cabinet every month. She has a set that I admired from afar and when her best friend was giving hers away, she KNEW exactly who would appreciate them!  ME!

Introducing my year of tea pots!













Do you have a display of "something"?

A Jolt of Reality


A Jolt of Reality

Last week I got the phone call everyone dreads to receive...
A loved one is in the hospital.
My Brother was "in the hospital and not responding, get there as soon as you can..."

Upon my arrival, he had woken up and was talking - Hallelujah! 
They were letting us in two at a time to see him, so my sister and I went in together.
His first words to us... "Well you're pretty."  ha ha
Having just come from fishing with my family, I smelled of catfish and sweat,
my hair looked like I had seen a vision and my skin was pretty pale...
 I assured the family there wasn't anything wrong with him, 
he was completely fine... ha ha

But all joking aside, he is not completely fine... 
By the grace of God he survived what should have given him his heavenly promotion...
He happily got to come home yesterday and is recovering with family 
but he's not out of the woods yet.

As we enter into my favorite season - Fall - I'm looking through my cookbooks 
to see how I can adapt some of my favorite recipes 
to accommodate Type 2 Diabetes at family gatherings.
And ya know what, it won't be that difficult after all!

I would appreciate healing prayers for my Brother and any delicious food
recipes you may have for those with Diabetes.  THANK YOU!
