The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul. He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil: my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
-Psalm 23

Getting ready to have my morning cup of coffee, so I'll share it with you. It's really warming up , really warming up. As I was enjoying the sun and watching the dogs play out on the patio yesterday a hummingbird flew right in front of my face. What a great treat and it came back a little while later too. I thought of you and how much you loved them. Thank you Mom for all my memories . I miss you and love you so very much.
