Good morning everyone. Well, it’s morning here in s.e. FL. It’s right around 6:30, I’m sipping my first cup of two cups of coffee.
Thank you to those who have emailed or commented to see how I am. The last of Andrea was Saturday morning with one big thunderstorm with LOTS more rain. I didn’t leave for work until an hour and a half later than usual, because of rain, thunder and lightening. As it was, I still had to wade in water to get to the van and to open gates. The driveway was a river. The ground is still soggy today.
Sunday I was able to get a load of laundry washed and hung out to dry as it was a sunshiny day, and also trimmed the secret gardens hedge and cleaned up the trimmings. Monday I mowed early before doing errands, that afternoon I went to my first staff meeting for FNF. I enjoyed it and getting to know some of the ladies a little more.
Yesterday morning I got out early again and weedwacked and raked and bagged the debris. I ‘plan’ to get out and do some more this morning as I just can’t do it all at one time.
The past week I worked quite a bit on the new blog for FNF. The founder/director, Dotti, loves it. I am honored and thankful to be able to do this. Dotti is a sweet, fun lady to work with. I feel blessed as this has given me something to do to help other widows. I first wanted to help widows when our dear Aunt Ruthie lost Uncle Wilbur but even more so once I lost my dear husband Mark, in December 2012. I wanted to connect with widows and God led me to this wonderful group which is growing.
I do have some flower pictures for you. I have lost some plants due to too much rain for three weeks and still squishy grounds. Weeds, of course, are having no problem growing.

Yesterday, after lunch, I laid down for a nap. While laying there I just felt so peaceful. I think it was the first feeling of this since Mark left the planet to be with our Creator. I had paid bills earlier, the checkbook balanced, I had done some gardening, the new blog had been worked on again, and I had posted to my Continuing Journey blog. I lay there knowing God is taking care of me in many different ways. He is working all things out.
Today is a new day, may I rejoice and be glad in it.
Thank you all again for your love, support, friendship.
