Life Is Not Always a Bowl of Cherries


I have always loved cherries....my kitchen has a cherry theme, when I was a rubber stamper, cherries were one of my favorite subjects.  I can't even remember how many cherry rubber stamps I own, but it's in the double figures for sure.  I think many of my friends must know how much I tend to like cherries because I have received various gifts over the years with cherries as the central theme....jewelry, notecards, socks, aprons, towels, bags & purses.  


I certainly do not mind that friends associate me with cherries....I think cherries are cheery, who doesn't want to be thought of as cheery?


But life isn't always a bowl of cherries.  We all know that not only do cherries have pits, but so does life itself.  The trick is to get rid of the pits and still enjoy the sweetness of life.
 

I am hoping this latest pit in my life will turn sweet as the week progresses.  I have appointments with 4 nursing homes on Tuesday to determine where I will move my sweetie.  I am so praying that one stands out sweeter than the others and becomes my sweetie's new home soon.


An extra prayer from you will help....I do strongly believe in the beautiful, sweet power of prayer.  Sometimes life really is the pits.....but with my family and friends I feel blessed and it helps me to overcome these times.  Thank you.....

Until next time.....

  24. Dear Deanna ~ I just wanted to let you know, I came upon your blog through Pinterest (and FB) looking for a picture of Ranunculus and I immediately fell in love with your photography style! =) I think I may have been led here so I can pray for you so that you may be unburdened by your decisions that have been so heavy on your heart. I just recently unexpectedly lost my brother (51) and have been praying that my parents find some peace in knowing that their burdens too are not carried alone. So, I'm praying for you today!
