j u s t o n e p i c . . .

at the start of each day, i seek one special image pic.
(it can even be an image of well thought words.)

this is how i meditate ( not in the real sense ) relieve my mind.

sip a little coffee . . . peruse the sites . . .

if found, 

i let it set the tone for my day.

on occasion, on a whim, i share it with you.

i admit that i don't always find the "it pic" every day.


yesterday started as a perfect day.

 . . . the morning off with our precious grands.

brought them "Top Pot" doughnuts.

"my favorite is strawberry" . . .  for Holland.

"i like chocolate" . . . for Ben.

Chrislyn and Jason returned from the doctor with the best news.

the initial concerns of pregnancy complications from an earlier

ultrasound were completely ruled out.  ( the word miracle crossed

all of our minds.)  


when Chrislyn called her grandma to give her

the good news, grandpa answered the phone. grandma had just taken

a fall. (that fall that we anticipate at her age.)  my morning off would

now turn into a day off.  luck was on her side, as our preferred orthopedic

 surgeon was the surgeon "on call".  after a long day of clinic,

he came over to fix my mom's hip - femur.

dad and i left her resting comfortably at 10:00 pm.


this morning,

when i first laid eyes of this perfect room with a view in Paris,

i thought . . .wow!

 then i thought . . . 

would i bring a glass of red wine into this room?


 i would take it out into the Paris air so we could both breathe.

breath in  . . .  breathe out . . .

it's a new day!



  1. Glad that your mom is in good hands Lynne, and that the worry of pregnancy complications are behind you and your loved ones. Wishing you well on this August ( already!) day.
    XOXO Mary

  2. You have luck and blessings on your side, Lynne. I pray for you and your family and I know you have wonderful, exciting times ahead!!

    Love and hugs,


  3. Bonjour, LYNN!!!!!!

    First of all, félicitations to all for the good news that complications are NOT in the mix. Hallelujah! And each day has ups and downs. I know. Most of my days all summer have been outrageously magical, with only two that come to mind that were not so good. But these days were like an unexpected projectile blown in by the wind.....come and gone, of no value to me. And your garden of beloved children and grandchildren is stronger than any foreign entity that would want to ruin your day.

    Love on, and dear one, thank you so much for coming by to my post. I'm only posting once a month now, and it is liberating. May you enjoy all the goodness around you. Anita

  4. So sorry about your mother's fall. I pray all will be okay for her. Plus thank God for the good results of the pregnancy news. I would love to have that view for about a month at least. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  5. Love and prayers for your Mother. Lynne. What a wondrous view to appreciate as we go through life's uncertainties.
