~Welcome home~

This blog is dedicated to my dear family who live many miles away, and to you dear ladies , who have a heart for keeping the home fires burning. You, who love and cherish your family, and have a desire to create a home that says "Welcome, you are loved and cared for."

My desire is that when you leave that you will be encouraged and know that you too are loved.

~Tis a wonderful,busy,glorious season~

Written by Sue, Tuesday, December 10, 2019. cloudy warm for this time of year, high temps. 70's ♥️

Each year Mother, Mr P., Susan  and I visit a few dear Ones who are convalescing and take them a few goodies. Isn't she beautiful, 91 yrs. young and can work circles around me. ~wink~

Our first visit was yesterday, with a dear lady, a family member who lives in another town,  who had just returned home from the hospital a week ago, and was doing really well, giving thanks to our Lord for His healing touch. We stayed for almost two hours talking, laughing  and catching up on old and new news. Though we felt the visit was long, she didn't want us to leave. We prayed with her and soon left!

Mother had prepared several meals for her to have this week,  there were gifts and other goodies too!


Since she had been ill there were no Christmas decorations around,  the little lighted gift Mother had made brightened her table next to her chair. Isn't this the cutest evah! Mother made 20 of these, as usual my Mother gave me one too, it has the cutest lights, I just adore.

She also made these lap blankets to give this year, they are cut, edges are hand crocheted by her! 
**********************************************************************
Today, I am catching up on laundry, housework, and blogging, while Mr P. is away from the farm, he asked me to promise not to be climbing on any ladders, my requests to him were, please be careful  while working, look twice before leaving a stop...... kiss, kiss, "I love you"!πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’•
BTW!!! He had a great report from the Dr!

Our Christmas plans are ... Relax, enjoy time with family and friends, be thankful, don't rush, don't stress, set priorities, be kind,  don't go into debt, enjoy great food!

Most of all  we Celebrate the real reason for the season.

Luke 2:14~ "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace good will toward men!"


Blessings upon you and your household,
Sue

Yay that Mr. Pear Tree Lane had a good report!

Your mom is a wonder and an inspiration not to mention beautiful.

Loved the excellent tips you gave for surviving the holidays. Top-notch advice!

Hi Sue, I am so glad that your hubby got a good Dr. report. People that have not had illnesses have no idea how freeing that kind of report can be.
Your mom is beautiful and I only hope that I can do as much as she does when I am her age. God bless her (and you). xo Diana

My goodness, is this your Mom? She's beautiful. I hope I look this good when I am 91. She's also very talented. I love her crafts. I think it's wonderful that she makes these blankets for others. You are very Blessed. I'm so glad to hear that Mr. P got a great review from the doctor. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Hello, well, that Mr. P's health was the most important thing to enjoy the pleasure in Pau Jesus and closeness in him because he lives in us.
Wonderful first photo with a lady in the car but so sad serious.

Christine said...

Your mother is so precious, loving, giving and thoughtful! I don't have a mom so I am adopting her! Well, at least her spirit.

When you are trying to get the best plants for your organic landscape, you should take the time to get educated. Chose plants that are suited to growing conditions you already have, rather than trying to build an environment for a plant you didn't properly plan for.

A great way to reduce the stress that you experience is to reduce your caffeine intake. A large intake of caffeine can increase the levels cortisol in your body. Cortisol is the stress hormone in your body that helps to regulate many things including weight gain, mood swings, heart disease and diabetes. By decreasing your caffeine intake, you will naturally decrease your stress levels.

If you are around family for most of the day, try to hug them as often as possible. This will make you feel at peace with the people that you care for the most, which will reduce your level of anxiety. Show affection towards the ones you love to eliminate stress.
