Recovery Mode

Today I'm in recovery mode...

We enjoyed ourselves with friends and family.

Drove the country roads.

Rustled in the leaves with my little one.

The little one picked leaves for our table center piece.

Baked and cooked with the family.

I'm reflecting and enjoying the moments.

Nature often holds up a mirror so we can see more clearly the on-going process of growth, renewal, and transformation in our lives.

  1. Hope your recovery goes well. I understand days like these :0)

  2. There is nothing sweeter than family the family home except for maybe the recovery day. . .I love them both. Enjoy your success.

  3. I'm smiling at Lovella's comment...and nodding just a little.

    Sounds like you had a fine family time!

  4. Hope all goes well, Marg. You've captured such pretty colors of fall.

  5. I'm in recovery mode too, from way too much turkey and other goodies and way too little sleep on the weekend. LOL. I love thanksgiving.

    Such beautiful pictures. That's how I always think of Thanksgiving time, not the frigid cold and snow we have here. Where is our autumn?

  6. What beautiful pitcutres my friend. Autumn certainly is here. :)

  7. Yes, I understand! My mother in law always commented, "I love it when you come and I love it when you go."

  8. Oh those pictures are just lovely, Marg...
    I love your cornucopia ... I just found mine in the basement looking for my raffia pumpkins :)
    Time to fill it!
    Your country roads are inviting and inspiring a Sunday drive.

    How wonderful to rest and reflect.

    Marg, I also read your Five Fav's
    and am relishing this quote from your mother's gift of the baton:
    "Keep on running with your eyes fixed on Jesus"
    I'll keep that in my journal...
    Blessings ~Maria

  9. Beautiful fall pictures. May you have wonderful memories lingering in your mind from good times with family.

  10. yes . . .

    My mother used to say about us and the grandchildren - "I love to see them come and I love to see them go"

    I don't have grandchildren yet - but even a big crew for dinner makes me understand that sentiment a little more.

  11. Restoration days should happen much more often!

  12. I hope you and your family had a very happy Thanksgiving Marg!
