Drawn Out by the Light

Amazing what a little light will do to boost mood! Winter officially ended over a month ago, and nature is greening up all around. The fields around our house are almost blinding they’re so green. The buds on the trees are popping. They don’t want to miss the party!

On sunny Spring days, I look for any excuse to be outside. Last evening, Sam and I walked next door to his parents’ farm with three of our children, their┬áspouses, and our six grandchildren. The grandkids LOVE playing at the farm! And it holds many happy memories for our children as well. We’ve had the family together at the farm every Sunday evening for over thirty years.

There’s so much light in this!

three swings in motion with only two hands.


The red-headed, four-year-old grandson who steered the motorized Barbie Jeep into a mud puddle while showing off for his less experienced older cousins. They all laughed and went on having fun.



The smiles on the faces of my children and children-in-law as I asked them to shuffle to the right a bit so I could take pictures without shadows across their faces.

Days like these make me happy to be alive and spending time with the people I love the most. We can get through the gloomy, humdrum, and miserable days when we know there will be days like these, days of LIGHT!

This is a Tumbling, officially, which means the words just tumble onto the page with minimal editing.

I am a writer and a pretty good cook. I overuse exclamation points and dark chocolate. I LOVE God and my family the most! I know from experience that life goes much better when we help each other. I'm writing a book about becoming your best self. I think of it as one of many ways I can help others and be helped by them.
