I have been so blessed to have a close and loving family.
And so has Mr. Flea.
Tomorrow we will be celebrating the 90th birthday
of Mr. Flea's Mom.
She and his Dad (age 92) are still healthy and active
and live here in the same retirement community as my Dad.
Yes, I am back in Florida!
Thanks Dan...for holding down the fort up north..again!
You would all just love my mother-in-law Rachel...
...another creative spirit...full of energy and enthusiasm for life.
She was a school teacher for many years
and is a talented artist...still painting with water colors
and quilting to this day.
This is a bit of lace and silk that long ago
had been tucked away in an envelope by Mr. Flea's grandmother.
They were the remnants of her mother's wedding gown.
(Mr. Flea's great-grandmother)
My mother in law has passed the envelope on to me...
...a keeper of such mementos.
I am delighted to treasure it...
and one day pass these bits of silk and lace
to another keeper within the family.
We have many blessings and reasons to celebrate!
I hope you do too.
Have a wonderful weekend!
