Those Special Reminders




My little 'Show and Tell' for today is a collection of Willow Tree figurines that are displayed on a shelf above our kitchen entry. Each one has a special meaning to me, a specific time in my marriage or when one of my little ones were born. And since we've been married six years and now have six cupcakes, there's been such a whirlwind of activity that they help me to look back and cherish those really special moments that seem to happen to quickly.

I've been seriously thinking of starting this collection. I saw one online the other day with a woman holding a kitty cat. And to me, that's me....so I just may start.

Yours is fabulous! I love these 'faceless angels' and figurines.

Happy Show n Tell day

I especially loved the scripture.
Somedays I feel like I labor in vain....but ahhh He has plans for me. I find comfort in that.
