Spring Time Fun: Little Miracles & Link-UpApril 17, 2017, by Leslie Roberts Clingan
Sweet and faithful friends,
Hello, this is Leslie from Once Upon a Time & Happily Ever After writing to you on this beautiful Easter morning. When the TBB gals were bouncing around ideas for our "Spring Time Fun" series, I suggested a 'little miracles' or 'blessings' post similar to the ones I do on my own blog. So grateful to have Deena from Shoes to Shiraz, Sheila from Making the Most of Every Day, and Shaunacey from Simply Shaunacey joining me today as we share moments of gratitude, blessings and little miracles sprinkled about our daily lives.
Spring is the season of renewal and rebirth. Last week, some of the ladies and I blogged about signs of spring cropping up in our individual corners of the world. You can revisit that post, here. I think all of us mentioned, in some form or fashion, how our yards and gardens and neighborhoods are beginning to turn green with blooms and buds. Little miracles for sure.
In my life, blessings come in different shapes and sizes. And 'degrees'. For example, I am working on an elephant collage on canvas for my guest bedroom. I had cut elephants from scrapbook paper and layered them on the canvas then planned to add an elephant from an Indian napkin I bought on Etsy. Then the napkin vanished. Couldn't find it anywhere for months.
This fall, as I was gathering books for a library lesson, I found the napkin. Right where I had put it -imagine that - inside the book The Shelf Elf Helps Out by Jackie Mimms Hopkins. Just where I'd tucked it months before to flatten.
