Random Thoughts On a Cold Winter Day

"Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of a reward, safe in the knowledge that one day, someone might do the same for you."
( Princess Diana)

For, it is in the doing for others that we reap our greatest rewards in life.  To see the smile on the face of another because we have lent a hand up, or given a few words of random kindess, can change a life.  We must never underestimate what a few moments of caring and sharing can mean to another human being, in need of, who will never be able to repay you, but because you will have made a difference in someone's life, just for doing a random act of kindness that day.

All too soon, those special moments with those we love are fleeting memories, but memories to cherish for a lifetime.  This past weekend, we visited with my parents, who live a few hours from here, but with whom we have not been able to visit for a while, due to snowstorms and viruses.   Our little granddaughter, Ella, and daughter, Carra were able to accompany us for a day of great fun together. My sister, Nancy, and my nephew, Brendan, also surprised us with a visit! 

Great Grandma with Baby Ella

Ella, Wearing Her "Princess Hat" Plays "Patty-Cake"
Meggie played "Princess" too in  her new "Princess Doggie Coat"!  She thinks she is  "Tres Elegante", don't you think?  A wonderful woman, we met at a craft fair, who specializes in making custom pet attiire, recently created this special coat for our pampered little pooch, who really hates going out in the cold.  

Although Meggie was very cooperative, allowing herself to be dressed in this fussy little coat, she isn't too sure about whether or not she is excited about wearing it! 
This snazzy little outfit even comes with "leg warmers", which are to arrive in the mail any day.  Now, that should be interesting......!  We'll see how Meggie likes wearing them too!~

I hope that you have enjoyed reading my "random thoughts" for today, and seeing some of the newest photos of some of the special people in our lives, including  precious little pooch too!

Consider the Lilies of the Field

Consider the Lilies of the Field
"So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the Lilies of the Field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, that even Solomon in all his glory, was not arrayed like one of these." Matt: 6: 28-29)
