Bits and Bobs of Happy Things...

We've all heard "grab happiness when it comes around...."

Even in the midst of one of the hardest, if not THE hardest, times in my life,

Little things come along that make me happy...


...how much happier can you get when you find
3 pans with lids, in your favorite color...
never been used...
 


for $6.00 each.
I was swooning all over that Goodwill...

That pretty little monogrammed linen Kleenex box cover came from
my sweet girl...I just love it but I sure do love my Stacy more.


...then I spied this cute little sign....





Chocolate pie...
cake....
cookies...
but especially love Nana Diana's CHOCOLATE GRAVY.
Go to her blog and search it for her amazing recipe....


I found several more treasures at Goodwill that day
that I'll brag about another day.



He is gaining strength every day...
slow....but sure...
he is in a very nice rehab facility and they take good care of him...
 
and this makes me the happiest of all.

  7. Been thinking of you, but know how full your plate is, and try not to bother you. Loved all your finds, but love the good news of Mr. Sweet. Trust he wil be do much better after rehab. My poor sister had to stay a month in rehab. Not sure she will ever be the dame again. Hang in my friend as it will get better.

  11. So glad to see Bill looking well and wearing a grin. It's very nice to have the goddesses (aka nurses) take good care of and tend out to him!

    And you have been doing a bit of therapy I see. Those pans are so pretty and your cooking will taste better than ever before! Is that chocolate gravy even legal?

    Be good now and get that boy sprung just as soon as possible!

  13. I'm so glad to see this bright, cheery update on your goings-on! IT BRIGHTS me to see you enjoying the simple wonderfuls, and to see how much, again, that we have in common. (Chocolate gravy is a fabulous old stand-by for a frosty morning, and not out of place beside an elegant fruit tray, other).

    The best photo of all is your sweet family (unplanned accent on SWEET, as in MR. and his dear face so happy to be with his girls). And such lovely news of his improvement and gaining of strength and energy as he recovers. YOU KNOW these bee-jillion prayers of the past few months have been of great effect.

    love to you and all you love,

  23. Oh- I love your pots and pans and your sweet finds---but what I love even more is to hear that Mr.Sweet is getting stronger and doing well in rehab. I know how it tears your heart to see him there, know how hard it is to leave him there, know how hard it is to go home to empty rooms at night. You, too, are getting stronger by the day whether you know it or not.
    Thanks for the shout-out. I think I may have to whip up a batch of that chocolate gravy myself soon....bring me some biscuits, will ya?
    Love to you- hang tough!!! xo Diana
