{Sweet Moments}

As most of you know by now my new word for 2016 is REFLECT and that covers a lot of territory for me but I am also trying to savor the sweet moments of life. I find myself being too busy, too preoccupied, to much of being in a hurry and well...JUST TOO MUCH OF EVERYTHING at times to truly reflect on whats happening right now in my life that reflects those little sweet moments. 

Well one sweet moment for me was going to register for my daughter's baby shower. I don't think the store was used to a "group" of people waltzing in to register but then....they don't know my BUNCH!  We had so much fun registering for that sweet little grandgirl that's on the way.


My girl eagerily filled out the paper work to get started.


And...she got used to that little hand scanner quick like too! Glad It wasn't me scanning things I wanted because I would have been there all day!


Too much to look at and pick from! I mean DANG...how many sippy cups do they make?


YEP both of us grandmothers are excited!
For me, this will be my 5th grandchild and my 4th grandgirl. For the other grandmother this will be her 2nd grandchild and her 1st GRANDGIRL! You can only IMAGINE her excitement!


Another sweet moment came when a sweet gal named Dee came by my office and brought me two pretty bracelets from India!

She had a family wedding to attend in India and get this...the wedding festivities go on for a week or so! WHOA! I am surely glad that wedding festivities don't last that long in my neck of the woods. I'd be BROKE and TIRED!


Oh my mercy, I loved both of them! These bracelets are so ME and to come from India was the icing on the cake!


Another sweet moment came when my daughter Melissa sent me this picture. She and my two grandgirls had decorated for Valentines day and she always has something wrote on her chalk board for all occasions but this melted this Nana's heart! I can't think of a more appropriate message for Valentine's Day! Or....for any day actually.


I came home one afternoon to find this precious gift waiting for me. I was thrilled! I've seen this sign floating around on Pinterest and I just loved the wording. Of course being a coffee lover added to the thrill! My niece Katie made this for me and I will always treasure it.


One more sweet moment I want to share with you. Our church hosted a community Health fair and I had the opportunity to be a very small part of it. Our focus of course was on physical health but what about spiritual health? My part was simple: How can I pray with you today?


My goal was to pray with whomever would stop by to let me pray with them. I had several sweet ladies that wanted prayer and I had some ladies that simply wanted me to put someone on my prayer list to pray for during the week but this lady stole my heart. She was talkative, straight to the point and funny! When she sat down I immediately thought she was sitting down for me to pray with her about something....So I asked her "What can I pray about for you today?. She smiled and said NOTHING...I am tired of walking so I just want to sit down! Cracked me up! 



There is so many sweet moments in life that will pass us right on by if we don't take the time to enjoy them! What sweet moments have you had this week? 

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  7. First of all, I always enjoy visiting with you. I know y'all had so much fun registering for all those sweet baby goodies! I did have a very sweet moment this past Monday morning! I went to the awards ceremony at Ava's school. Oh, all those little children are so precious. Anyway, our little Ava got 3 awards!! She was so sweet and posed for us to take her picture. Sweet moments, precious memories.
