Sunday Morning ...

a summer rain is falling.  Almost the sound of a lullaby in the otherwise quiet.  A wonderful time for reflection, time for a few moments to stop the pace and just be.  I'm thinking of starting a memories post and would love to hear from you about your favorite memory.  In this hectic world its nice sometimes to stop and remember and relish the simplicity of years gone by.  Leave me a comment, send me an email and lets stroll memory lane. 

What brought this to mind is that we will spend some time this afternoon with cousins and there will certainly be talk of back then, laughter and heart stirrings.  I am looking forward to this.  The last time we had visited we had brought with us the largest Hershey bar we could find.  When my husband was a child and they would visit their grandparents, Grandpa would always give Hershey chocolate to the grandchildren.  He and his cousin had spoken of this not too long before our last visit ... they said that he would open the cupboard and there were stacks of candy bars just waiting for the little visitors.   A bar would be opened and three squares would be broken off and given to each child.  The candy bar we brought with us on our visit brought big smiles and conversation flowed through the afternoon of childhood memories.  Growing up I hadn't had grandparents and I find such delight in hearing these stories.  Yes, a day of reflection in the making.  It will be wonderful.  It is good.

I hope your day holds some treasured thoughts and moments as well.  Blessings.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful family day you have planned. I have wonderful memories of spending time with my grandparents in Westport, NY on Lake Champlain. Too many to mention, but all held dear and close to my heart. Enjoy your day with your family. BTW, I added your name to the list for my giveaway since you were having problems accessing the link.

  2. Oh yes Gor, what a wonderful idea to do memories of when. I bought a most delightful book recently at our local library used book store, and it is memories of days on the farm. Each story is only a page or two, and is beautifully illustrated, and told in such a way, be each individual author, that it takes you straight back in time. I love it!!! Have a lovely holiday.

  3. Ooops...GLOR..not Gor!!! Oh my!!

  4. I'm trying to leave comments to you...enjoyed the story about the Hershey's...I didn't know any of my grandparents either..I feel deprived somehow..A memory post would be a great place for those with happy memories to share...I will look forward to it..

  5. Hi,

    Best wishes for a wonderful Holiday weekend. Linda

  6. Glor I hope you and your family have a wonderful 4th of July and know that your Son is in my prayers...without brave men like him we would never even have had a 4th of July or enjoy the freedom that we know and love so well as Americans. God bless our military and their families forever.

    Blessings to you and yours always :)
