"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

Cup-O-Cheer


A cup o cheer. Exactly what I need this morning. It's been rougher than usual facing this week. Last night I visited with our dear little friend MacKenzie. Please pray for her and her family. She is losing her battle with a brain tumor. I brought food n goodies and planted purple n pink mums, pansies and bulbs to bloom next spring... I thought about how she has brightened my world and the lives of so very many who have never even met her. She loves Tinker Bell and it's so fitting... She's a sparkling pixie herself, a shining ray of God's Light, and I know she'll never be far away...


I shouldn't have even tried to start the day without my coffee. As I began making scrambled eggs for the kids, I cracked the shell and dumped the egg in the trash! When I did finally get to my coffee, I think it might have had a fruit fly in it. Or a coffee ground. Going with the coffee ground for the time being.


Hope your week is off to an energetic start!

You are hilarious! I cannot even begin to think about the day without coffee. I guess I'm officially addicted! I LOVE your coffee sign at the end. Very funny.

What a hysterical coffee quote! I am a tea drinker so I can't relate. Thank you for your kind comment on my blog. My bad. I forgot to check the comment box when I wrote my Hamptons Farmstand post.
