Quiet Anticipation

 . .... .... .. .. .. ..... .. .. .... ..... .... ... .. .. ... . .. .
We cannot tell the exact moment a friendship is formed;
as in filling a vessel drop by drop,
there is at last a drop which makes it run over;
so in a series of kindnesses,
there is at last one that makes the heart run over.
~ James Boswell

I'm heading out later this afternoon for a weekend away... quietly anticipating a Woman's Retreat, with ladies/friends from our church.  I just a little bit -over the top- excited to get a way for a few days.   Just a tad...
Of course, I'll miss the fam.  But, Scott will do super well at playing Mr. Mom, as he always does - whenever I'm away.  It was actually his encourage-able idea, for me to do this.  :)  And, I'm grateful.
"believe it or not, we're not the only ones who need to know we're doing well.  The only difference between you and your mother is age and maturity, and feelings and insecurity don't fade with those."

I read this above quote in a magazine recently and it struck a cord with me.  As I'm getting older and walking this path of Motherhood ... I can see where this is true with my own Mother and even Mother-in-law.  And when I think I'm the one who is not doing well... I realize they have their moments too. And, are in need of constant refreshment and encouragement. Who knew?
As well... I'm thinking of you on this upcoming Mother's Day! 

Wishing each one of you a special day to remember - in every way possible.

Have a Blessed day!

    1. I did enjoy and one of these days - maybe you'll find yourself on a Woman's Retreat, too!

      How was your Mother's Day? Mine was lovely - with an attempt at recuperating. Even though the retreat was restful it was still with lack of sleep, etc. lol!

  5. Bevy,
    How fun for you! I love to receive encouragement and refreshment from other ladies.
    And...is this photo from your home!? This is a beautiful vignette!
    Thinking of you and praying for your time away!

    1. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers... it was a lovely weekend.

      And... yes! A vignette from my home. A friend brought over some lovely Bridal Wreath (in the vase) a couple of days ago... and the white butcher's table is a cherished treasure from my grandparents. I love this corner! I don't mind being honest. :)


Thanks for coming by, today! You're visits always mean so much...
