|Beautiful reminder from Abby at Little Birdie Blessings|
1. A safe and beautiful trip to North Hero, Vermont last weekend for a memorial service. (For those not familiar with New England, North Hero is one of the islands in Lake Champlain.) The very small cemetery overlooks the lake. We saw many beautiful trees, shrubs, spring flowers, birds, and -- on our return trip and much closer to home -- even a bear.
2. Good time with extended family at a gathering following the service. Of my hubby's six siblings, five were present, and it was good to spend a bit of time visiting with them.

4. The safe arrival of a baby boy for our young friends Sam and Jenn. What a wonderful gift from the Lord! We are looking forward to making his acquaintance soon.
5. The first supper picnic of our summer! Yes, I know it's technically not summer yet, but it looks and feels like summer for the most part. We took a simple picnic to a riverside picnic spot. So tranquil with just the sound of rushing river water as a background. Should we have taken this time? Probably not, as there were other details we could have been attending to. But did we need to take this time? Yes, and we're happy that we did.
